Just returned from spending a couple of days at the Birchwood Hotel with my elderly mother. What can I say, except it was absolutely lovely!
We were met at reception by Viv who was most welcoming and after filling out the requisite forms we were shown to our room, which was large, comfortable and very clean. The attention to detail was immediately evident. Extra pillows had been provided for my mother as I'd requested when placing the booking. The room temperature had been increased as they were aware my mother was of advancing years. Towels were large and fluffy, beds extremely comfortable and everything was just perfect. The en suite was clean and the shower very hot with a good strong flow of water.
We chose to eat dinner in the hotel restaurant on the Friday evening and the food was devine. Everything is prepared fresh and cooked to order and served piping hot. The Duck dish I ordered was delicious. Although slightly pricey it is on par with all other hotels and restaurants in Pitlochry. Being situated right on the edge of town it's an easy ten minute walk to the local amenities. After spending a few hours sampling the delights of Pitlochry we retired and both of us had a wonderful nights sleep. The hotel is quiet, comfortable and warm.
Breakfast is, once again, made to order and the choice is good (I'd recommend the porridge) and the black pudding was very tasty.
The Staff are very attentive, catering for your every need, and John is a font of knowledge for the local and surrounding areas, and is a thoroughly decent and likeable chap.
I will definately visit again and I thouroughly recommend this delightful hotel.
