“Great Party”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Have just spent our second evening at this hotel. First in April 2012 and the second in October 2012. First night spent in annex. The second night in the hotel. The second stay was well worth the extra few pounds. As with the first trip the food was excellent, would have preferred my peppercorn sauce made with double cream but chefs are notoriously critical. Were well looked after by all the staff especially Janet. Looking forward to coming back for our next family gathering sometime in 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Dunkeld last night - we both enjoyed our stay. The staff were very welcoming and made you feel at home - the room was clean and comfortable and very cosy when we returned in the evening. The breakfast was extremely good made with good quality produce and cooked to a very high standard - compliments to the chef. We will be back thank you.

Just had an overnight stay here. The room was small, but very comfortable, excellent shower. Had dinner in restaurant, food was great and staff very friendly. Breakfast was cooked to order and the bacon was the best ever tasted!

I've stayed here a few times in the last year and have to say I'm quite disappointed. The staff aren't particularly helpful, the rooms are all very tired and the food is pretty poor. It's a convenient location, and it has access to some very good restaurants nearby (thankfully!), but you'd probably be better off staying somewhere else

Travel to this area 3 or 4 times per year and always stay at the The Royal Dunkeld. Staff are very friendly and extremely curteous and helpful. Food is absolutely gorgeous and very reasonably priced. The Woodlands restaurant is congenial and comfortable, with lovely woodcarvings lovely atmosphere for romantic or family meals (had both here over the years). Love that children and dogs are made extremely welcome too. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Would highly highly recommend.

Just back from a Fri-Sun 2 night Autumn Break. Been to Dunkeld several times over the years as a stop off on route North, but 1st without kids and dog (although observations from our stay, both would have been made very welcome). Perfect getaway, very relaxing in a lovely setting.
Room was clean and comfortable, staff brilliant, "nothing a bother". Food superb...lots of choice from standard "pub fare eg.burgers etc" to local specialities". Portions just right...try the Cheesecake..absolutely delicious.

Room Tip: Hotel doe'snt have a lift, so if you are less mobile, give the hotel a call and ask for a lower...

Just back from a Friday - Monday stay with our golfing friends and have to say not impressed - room comfortable although could have been cleaner - staff very friendly but food was a a real let down - when booking for a party of 12 we weren't advised that there would be a set price for evening meals and anything over that would be chargeable to the rooms - this would not have been a problem had we been advised when booking but a bit annoying to be advised of this when we had checked in and arrived for our meal - the menu was the same for the entire weekend even though there was a 'Specials Board' the food didn't change (except for the soup) the price charged for house wine was overpriced and have to say the quality left a lot to be desired could have bought a better quality in the local supermarket for a lot less - it was their loss as we didn't purchase any more wine with diner - breakfasts were ok some mornings you got 2 pieces of bacon and others you got 1 (maybe they hadn't ordered enough!!!!)- certainly won't be back at this hotel which is a shame as we really liked Dunkeld - to save themselves a lot of hassle they would be better having a set menu each night for guests who book fore DBB
