“Absolute perfection!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I decided to go away for 2 nights in January instead of buying one another Christmas gifts. We booked The Townhouse in November and read all the fantastic reviews about it on trip advisor.

There is one word that sums up The Townhouse: perfect. The owner, David was there at the door as we arrived and was the most thoughtful and helpful hotelier I've ever met.

Our room was absolutely stunning. There was not a thing out of place and the decor was of the absolute highest quality. We got a park view room and would definitely recommend paying the extra for it. There were lovely homemade biscuits and lovely china cups for tea or coffee. The bathroom was gorgeous with the best shower in the world! The toiletries were Arran Aromatics which I love and know how pricey they are! The bed was huge and so comfortable and there was a lovely seating area that David had arranged beautifully with that days paper ready for us.

We went out for a lovely Indian meal to Tabla just a few streets down on the first night, which I would also recommend.

The breakfast was simply stunning; we were given a lovely fruit salad followed by a huge choice of cereals and then a full cooked breakfast served up like a 5 star hotel would. The eggs were the most yellow I've ever seen (and my friend owns hens so I'm used to really fresh ones!).

We went out shopping the next day and when we came back about 2 hours later our room had been hoovered, our bed made, fresh biscuits were out, our towels had been replaced and my pjs had been folded!

Everything about our stay was superb. Nothing was too much trouble and the small bowl of sweets outside our room was a lovely addition!

I have never written a review on here but I couldn't pass up the chance of telling more people how fantastic The Townhouse is (my colleagues at work are sick of me!)

So, in short, I'm not saying IF you go to Perth stay at The Townhouse; I'm saying go to Perth SO you can stay at The Townhouse. And enjoy every relaxing second of it.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

This beautifully decorated townhouse was extremely well presented. The service is second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and all our needs catered for. David is an excellent host and the attention to detail was impeccable. We were made to feel welcome before we got through the door. Even the dog was spoilt with leftover sausages and a bowl of water waiting for him in our room which was huge and extremely clean.

Please don't miss this one - we absolutely loved it. Many thanks to David and Laurent.

Room Tip: You won't be disappointed with any room.

I've stayed in the Perth Townhouse hotel In the beginning of January'2014 and I like everything on it. The hotel is not so big, just 4 or 5 rooms. But atmosphere and service are amazing! Personal time and content of a breakfast. Cleanliness and Scotish spirit everywhere. Specially thanks to David for his hospitality and care!

I stayed here and cannot fault this place. On arrival such a warm welcome from David who had left Christmas card and some ferro Roche chocolates. The place is immaculate and with an amazing shower in the room. The bed was very comfy.The place is Close to town centre.
The breakfast was excellent choice with lovely cooked breakfast. All in all will be back again thanks.

We spent four days in Scotland, two in The Town House, Perth and two in a five star hotel in Edinburgh - give me The Town House any day! The building is beautiful and stunningly decorated. Huge, comfortable rooms with so many little touches to make it special. We received a very warm welcome and the service was outstanding. I had forgotten my hair tongs - major panic before attending a wedding - and David even offered to go out and buy some for me!
The breakfast was superb. They even managed to make fruit salad special!

I don't normally write reviews, but our stay was so good, it's worth shouting about!

Room Tip: Our family group took up three rooms and all were excellent.

We have just returned from a family wedding weekend in Perth and we were recommended to stay at the Townhouse. It is a bit more expensive than its rivals, but our experience was that this is one place where you get what you pay for. There were five of us staying in three rooms.
The accomodation is all that you'd expect from a boutique hotel; homely, scrupulously clean, antique laden, with no expense spared. The Townhouse is beautifully decorated, and the attention to detail quite stunning...chocolates on the stairs as you walk up etc etc! This is the sort of place that trusts its clientele and so all the little touches are present which wouldnt be in most hotels because they would be at risk of being stolen.
The service is exceptional - David who owns the place with his partner - came out to meet us at the car, carried our cases, explained where eveything was, with a great sense of humour and charisma. He has the art of service without being subservient. A rare quality.
Breakfast was made to order, everything was available, and the starter was finely chopped fresh fruit infused with mint. Fresher than fresh. Then a cooked breakfast that was made from scratch. Superb quality and friendly service.
Would we return? Yes, all of us felt this place was exceptional and somewhere Perth should be proud of. The wedding reception at Errol Park was incredible, but staying at the Townhouse made our weekend complete.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the park.
