“very good lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Only went because of itison deal, £9 for 2 courses and glass of wine. Good value. Formal dining room complete with white linen tablecloths. Very good food, perfect portion size, promptly served, by attentive, friendly staff. Lovely separate, comfortable bar area. Would definately come back.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

My friend and I stayed here for one night over the weekend. The building is lovely as you drive up and the golf courses and grounds look great. Lovely location, just outside of Perth.
However, the room we were in (5) was somewhat tired and sad. It was very basic with a small tv, no fridge or mini bar and tired looking decor. Wifi cost £9 per day - poor in this day an age for a hotel I would say.

The staff were friendly enough and the bar at the clubhouse was very nice to sit and have a drink. The public rooms looked far nicer that the room we stayed in.

Breakfast was in a nice room and was very tasty.

Probably wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: the standard one we were in wasn't very nice - i have heard from a friend that the suites are lo...

Sorry that you did not enjoy your room, our rooms in the main house are all individually decorated in a country house fashion using premium fabrics and furnishings. The hotel rooms do not have mini bars or fridges in them but our external suites are all furnished with a small fridge and microwave oven as well as seperate lounge areas. Perhaps next time.

We were at the same Works Christmas Do as the reviewer below ( I think) and indeed it was a good night. The dinner arrangements were very smoothly organised, the tables looked lovely and the staff were very friendly and efficient. We thought most of the food rather average - my starter featured under-ripe melon, tiny prawns and wilted lettuce and looked as if it had been sitting about for a long time. The turkey dinner looked rather processed. The sea bass I had was well cooked but with dry cous-cous and a couple of very crunchy vegetables it was unexciting - even a bit of lemon might have been nice. However, the meal was redeemed by the fabulous desserts, so well done to the pudding chef! The crème brulee with Armagnac was to die for and the other puddings excellent too. A good selection of liqueur or Macallan was offered afterwards, which was a nice treat.
The bedroom was wonderful with huge and comfortable bed and super bathroom. It was great that the fan did not go on automatically! The downside of this is that probably nobody uses it enough so there was a minor mould problem.
Breakfast was very civilised but sadly let down by cold soggy toast and disastrous scrambled egg which was so overcooked in the microwave that it was bouncy and had large blue-green lumps through it. That anyone should have put it on a plate indicated a problem with breakfast staff! The waitress looked at me impassively without smile or apology and asked whether she should fetch more, but I had been put off eggs by then.
It's really only the eggs which prevented me giving 5 stars, and I do hope the Christmas Do will be repeated next year!

If we had a complaint it would be that the lighting to the lodge house isn't great and staff just said its over there!! Where!! However, when we found our room we were very pleased, spacious, warm, comfortable and quiet. Dinner was first class as was breakfast. Staff in the diningroom were very professional and pleasant.

Room Tip: The rooms in the lodge are huge!

Well I only stayed here for a few hours on a work journey. I arrived at 0400 and was pleasantly welcomed by the night porter. He was very helpful and polite and let me beg a drink. He then lent me his touch so I could find my way to the room as the storms were kicking in and it was pitch black.

The rooms were amazing. Big, comfortable with all you may need. Although I didn't get to use the facilities I would have been happy to stay.

Breakfast was great. Continental or full Scottish. The mini haggis was amazing.

This will be a place I will return to for pleasure not just as a flying stop over.

What a little gem! The house is beautiful especially with all the Christmas decorations up. My room was amazing. Huge huge windows, massive bed - I felt very grand! The en suite was a wet room and the elemis toiletries are a really nice touch.

Ate in the bar and thought the food and service were right on point. The foods very good value for money in comparison to other hotels I stay in.

Definitely be back!
