I have been to the Hilton Dunkeld a few times over the years - with family, with friends and as a couple. There is something quite comforting about knowing what you will get from hotel but I was concerned that the "fabric" of the building was becoming a bit tatty so I was pleased to see someone redecorating the hallway when we were there this time. It must be a never-ending task keeping up with the maintenance but it's a necessity for a hotel like this.
We had booked a room with a balcony. Having never stayed in one of those before - we've usually been in rooms with the view over the carpark but to be honest the best views of this fantastic location are to be had by being out and about - but it was a lovely treat. The size and fitting out of the room did not feel much different from other rooms we have had though so whether we would spend more for the balcony another time is doubtful.
The setting of the hotel is a winner ...that will never change. What was nice this time was the attention from staff. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful. That of course should be a given in any hotel but it was noticable during this stay and I think is worth mentioning.
We really enjoyed our meals - dinner and breakfast were included in our rate. I used the free wifi in the public areas. I know that the mobile signal is a bit erratic in that area so it was helpful to have another way to check emails.
We are bound to be back again sometime...
