“WHAT A DIFFERENCE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

stayed at this hotel about 4 years ago and swore i would never be back it was terrible ,BUT was there august this year 2013 and what a difference the hotel has new owners and i have to say they have made a big change all ready rooms were spotless staff were very pleasant, we had a full scottish breakfast tea and toast and it was lovely, well done to every one. if you have read previous reviews give this place a second chance its worth it. location is great right in the middle of the main street and handy for every thing.well done again guys for turning this place around.

Room Tip: ask for a room over looking the court yard if possible

We came for one night, a family of six persons and stayed in two rooms. The rooms were ok but not more.
We had a beehive in one of the room's window.
The fire alarm started working in all the hotel at 3:00 am and the same when we left...
The parking was full so we had to park in the street.
The breakfast was very basic.

We recently stayed at The Fisher's Hotel, Pitlochry. The rooms were pleasant, comfortable and clean. The shower in our en-suite wasn't working properly but apart from that, we had no problems with our rooms. The dinners were very good but the cooked breakfasts left a lot to be desired. In fact we opted for a continental breakfast after our first experience of a cooked breakfast.
This hotel is extremely convenient if you are travelling by train as the railway station is just at the back of the hotel. (We couldn't hear the trains from our room.)
There was traditional Scottish entertainment in the hotel on several evenings throughout the week but it was very poorly attended which was such a shame as the entertainers were very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which overlooks the garden as the ones at the front face onto a very busy street.

I read the reviews after I had booked and was quite anxious. I was travelling on my own to John O'Groats to collect my husband at the end of the End to End cycle ride. However I needn't have worried as the hotel was lovely, my room was spacious and very clean. I enjoyed sitting outside people watching on the main street in Pitlochry
The evening meal I had was delicious and good value.
All the staff were pleasant and helpful, the only downside being the cooked breakfast which was bland and watery but I guess that's mass catering for you. Would visit again.

Being elderly and not able to walk far, and travelling by train, we chose this hotel for its location near the station and in the main street. We were also influenced by a very good deal for 3 nights Dinner, B & B. The food was good if not imaginative. The room and bathroom were clean and quiet, looking on to the garden behind. The staff were smiling and helpful and managed coach parties and private guests efficiently. Dinner was served from 6pm for guests going to the Festival Theatre, as we were. A bus stop right outside enabled us to visit Blair Castle and Kinloch-Rannoch and there is a good taxi service. We were offered a glass of sherry on arrival. We hope to return next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the garden.

We paid £79 for an overnight stay including breakfast. The hotel is in great need of refurbishment. Our room was overlooking the street and wasn't clan, so we complained and got moved to a much nicer room (which makes we wonder why we weren't put there in the first place if it was lying empty?). This room was clean and more than adequate for what we paid.
The general cleanliness in the hotel wasn't great and the breakfast was ok, but nothing to rave about.
We wouldn't stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: garden rooms nicer than ones overlooking the street

Stayed in the hotel July as part of a larger group who pre booked for a family occasion.
We have a 1 year old so when booking asked for a room with a cot.
On arrival were given a room on the 3rd floor and no cot. I raised this with reception and the very nice lady had one put in the room straight away. I didn't ask to be moved room as there was a lift, however regretted this later as the 3rd flor wa too far from restaurant for baby monitors to work so had to keep running up 3 flights of stairs every 15 mins to check on baby. ( she was fine folks)
Had a bite to eat for lunch in "the snug" I opted for a baked potato, no issues with nice big portion however the salad was unwashed and had bits of grit in the lettuce, again minor grumble not a complaint.
We had planned to take on the evenings entertainment as we were told it would be a ceilidh, no such luck. Instead was a cover act belting out take that and west life in scenes straight out of Phoenix Night's, so we retired to the snug for drinks.
Dinner was a pre set menu because we had booked as a group for an event. Food was all nice no issues at all although waiting staff had a breakdown in communication at one point when they mixed up the order.
Breakfast the next day was standard large hotel fare. I had the full Scottish , portion was hardly gargantuan but adequate plus there was plenty toast and cereals on the buffet.

Having statyed in the Fishers several times over the last ten years I can testify that improvements have been made. Ignore stupid complaints on other posts like " the sink gurgling kept me awake" seriously? Some folk must lead a sheltered life!

My only point to MANAGEMENT would be PLEASE get some baby changing facilities organised, trying to change a wriggly 1 year old on your knee in the disabled toilet is ridiculous in this day and age. I recently travelled To turkey where' practically every restaurant had a changing table in the ladies loos, and some even had then in the men's.
