“Fantastic hotel, great staff, perfect location”
Reviewed July 8, 2008

Stayed here with my husband and two friends. Can't believe this was only 40 pounds per person per night for B&B. What a place. We will definitely, definitely be going back.

The food is delicious and very reasonably priced, considering the location of the inn/restaurant and the fact that almost all the food is locally produced/sourced.

Staff are all lovely and couldn't do enough to help. When we arrived we were given fresh milk for the bedrooms and a big jug of iced water. Nice touch.

We were getting up early on our first morning, so it meant we would miss breakfast. However, the lovely waitress made sure we all had plates of bread, lovely pork and ham, marmalade, milk, juice, cornflakes, etc., put into our bedrooms later on the first night, so we would still get our breakfast the next day. Very considerate !

I wouldn't bother looking around for other places to eat. We went to Aberfeldy and to Kenmore and gave up looking for a restaurant. Went to the bar in a hotel in Kenmore at 7.45pm on the Saturday night and were refused food as they had stopped serving in the bar (bar advert said food served all day). Couldn't find anywhere in Aberfeldy except for the fish and chip shop. So, save yourselves a wasted journey and trust the Inn on the Tay to give you a lovely meal !

Their wine selection is fantastic and reasonably priced. We got a bottle of red wine which was brilliant. We also bought a bottle of their sparkling Prosseco, which at 16.99 was delicious and as good as champagne. Whoever buys in their wines certainly knows what they're doing.

There's a decking area to sit outside and have some drinks (or a bar meal). You can watch the kayaking and river rafting here. The sound of the river is great - very relaxing !
Our two bedrooms were lovely. We had one at the front and one at the back/side of the Inn. Both were very tastefully decorated with comfy beds and lovely wooden furniture.

Ensuite bathrooms were a decent size and well done. Arran toiletries provided too, which were nice.

On our last morning, we had to leave quite early due to unforseen personal circumstances. The staff were lovely and even gave my husband some bacon rolls to take in the car.

All in all, this is a fabulous place to explore the area. I can't recommend it highly enough. Thanks to all the staff for making our stay so special !

I don't have any photos to share, unfortunately, but their website is great.

We have just come back from a 2 night stay here.

We cant believe there is no other reviews for this place as it is wonderful.

Firstly the position of the hotel is idyllic, right on the river Tay with a great decking over looking the river. The area is beautiful too.

The place is nicely refurbished with simple but stylish rooms.

The food was fantastic, best food we have had in Scotland by far.

The staff and owner were very friendly and helpful. It is very reasonably priced.

We would definitely recommend giving this place a visit.
