“good hotel in central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

stayed here on business and it was certainly better than your average 3 star hotel.the room was quite small but the bathroom looked brand new .The hotel is a bit of a warren but the staff were friendly and it was good value for the rate paid.The car park is very small and is through a pend you can park on the street after 6pm till 8 am for free.
Breakfast was supposed to open at 7.30am but they were very obliging a little while before that time and the two staff serving were friendly and on the go all the time.The cooked breakfast is served not buffet and was pretty decent.
there was a little street noise from the road from about 6 am but it wasn't overly intrusive

My husband and I chose the wedding venue 1 year before the wedding and to be honest from day 1 we knew we had chosen the right venue!
With all the questions a bride to be has and all the concerns Eddie was so helpful .
After loads of meetings and getting to see someone else's wedding being set up in the hotel it gave me lots of ideas.
I have to emphasize how well all the staff were on my actual wedding day . This was a 5 star plus at efforts to make all feel welcome and nothing was ever a problem with them !!
We got ready in the hotel before the wedding and the wedding suite is huge so fitted my 5 bridesmaids and mother of the bride makeup artist well .The hotel is an old fashioned so if you want new and modern don't book here .The hotel was perfect for my wedding pictures inside and outside as your right an the side of the Tay!
The food was amazing and very quick to get the meals out to all our guests at the same time , none of this still waiting whilst other people are already finished ! The meal its self was hot and portion size was quite big considering we catered for 60 guests including some young children . Eddie is such a professional at being a wedding master . The hotel is big enough for guests to mingle day and night nice couches to lounge on great little touches with hotel menus and table was set up for a king and queen .
The night time was perfect to we had 120 guests and all had an amazing time and the buffet was tasty and not a thing left at the end of the night
.I couldn't recommend this hotel anymore and the price was very good and the breakfast next morning was to die for .All or guests had taken up the rooms and we all dined together the morning after together so made it even more special .
Thanks again Eddie and all of his staff who made our day as special as it was !
Perfect day \ night had by all !!

The room did not look anything like we expected from images provided. It was dated and small but clean. View over a car park with the smell of rubbish bins below did not add to the experience. The towels were tiny. Plugging in a kettle wasnt easy.Parking was a problem as a busy Saturday in Perth. I did not like not having access to the internet in our room but were advised of this.The breakfast was very good and staff friendly and helpful. We did get to see what views were available over breakfast. Felt very disappointed could of got much better hotel for that price.

Room Tip: Avoid room 37

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The room had everything we needed and the staff were very polite and accommodating at all times, from reception, to dining room, to bar. The food was absolutely delicious (we had dinner and breakfast). We will definately return but hopefully for a bit longer next time.

We stayed at the Royal George Hotel for one night at the end of August 2013, we found the car park easily enough, and were greeted warmly by the receptionist, who even offered to arrange for someone to carry up our luggage as we were on the second floor.

Our room was very pleasant, overlooking the River Tay, it had obviously been refurbished in the not too distant past, and the bathroom and décor was a twist of Scottish tweed and modern.

We had a drink in the bar, and again the bar man was very friendly, polite and helpful, offering a taste of a local beer for my husband before he made his choice.

The breakfast was a little disappointing, slightly overcooked, and getting out of the car park was a little interesting!

Overall a pleasant hotel, we would stay again next time we’re in Perth.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the River Tay for a lovely view

I booked the Royal George for 3 nights for four of us as an early birthday present for my sister we arrived 18th August 2013, the receptionist ( SAM ) was very attentive and showed excellent hospitality skills, that also goes for the waiting staff every one was lovely. We stayed in rooms 32 & 45 could not have asked for anything better they where large, bright and of a high standard
would highly recommend them would also recommend the High Teas what an excellent menu
choice and the meringues where to die for must have put on at least a stone in those 3 days
but never mind
did plenty of walking and will definitely be coming back a wonderful hotel and staff hope we get
the same rooms again.
