“another wonderful visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We had a weekend break (just because we deserve it!) to cheer our selves up after a cold and bleak January. A weekend at the Knockendarroch fitted the bill wonderfully. After a pretty cold, damp Saturday morning out and about we spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing in front of a roaring fire, reading and drinking endless cups of tea (as did many other residents). As usual the staff were really great - helpful, thoughtful and cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent service on every level. We stayed in a turret room and were very impressed that we didn't hear any of the work being done on the house down the hill - the windows are clearly of a very tight fit! Well done to the chef, we particularly enjoyed Saturday night's dinner menu.

Dear GillR49, Thank you for taking the time to write another review of your stay at the Knockendarroch. It was lovely to see you both again and I'm glad we had the log fires as the weather wasn't quite as good as last time! We are delighted that we fitted the bill for your well-earned break.

My unbelievably generous boss arranged our annual xmas staff party at the Knockendarroch House Hotel who went out of their way to host our 1920's themed party night. From mulled wine and mince pies in front of the roaring fire to our delicious meal, the staff were beyond helpful despite their hotel being overrun by grown adults parading around as spivs and flappers! The rooms were beautifully designed, clean and comfy. I would recommend the opulent four poster room for a romantic evening! Despite a very late night the staff were bright eyed and served up a beautiful breakfast catering to all tastes and states of fragility! Overall a wonderful experience in a hotel which has married casual elegance with faultless service.

My boyfriend and I stayed here while in Pitlochry for the Enchanted Forest (a must see). Knockendarroch offers tunning views over Pitlochry, and is a short walk to the Main Street.

Our room was immaculate, and the shared lounge with open fire was lovely for a drink after a day in the cold.

Staff were welcoming & helpful and the food was fantastic. Will definitely be back in 2013.

From the moment we pulled up the driveway we knew we were in for a treat, we had booked the superior four poster room, amazing! Beautifully decorated, lovely furniture and bathroom, very clean and romantic. Staff were all wonderful, food was absolutely to die for. I'm normally very picky but I ate and tried everything. Dinner service was great, aperitifs in the lounge then taken through to the dining room followed by tea, coffee and petit fours by one of the two log fires. Morning paper delivered each morning. As we were on honeymoon we had chocolate messages on our plate and all our drinks etc complimentary. Certainly did not want to leave! As soon as we can we will be back. Thanks to all the staff who made our honeymoon amazing.

Stayed for one night at short notice and had a great experience from making the reservation right through to departure. Staff were friendly and efficient, room was very comfortable, dinner was exceptional and a great breakfast topped off the whole stay. Will definately return and have already recommended it to friends.
