Just returned from an amazing wedding weekend at the Dunkeld Hilton. Know the hotel well, and enjoy it a lot, but what an amazing place it is for a summer wedding. Certainly we had glorious weather, and spent most of our weekend out of doors, but nevertheless everyone had an amazing time.
The hotel itself is very nice, the staff attentive, and the reception and dining room staff very pleasant, warm and welcoming. the dinner in the restaurant was very nice and service good, as was breakfast.
We stayed in the annexe, Room 404, and Just loved it. Over the weekend many a party was had on the terrace, and enjoyed by all. The room was spacious enough for the bridal party of 10, plus hair and beauty staff, to work amicably on the busy wedding morning.
The wedding was large and held in the marquee, and all in all it sufficed, however there are small and large issues that need attention- the food was fine, but food service chaotic and poorly managed, leaving some VIP guests to be served last! The bar service was equally poor, understaffed, and not too customer friendly either. Not a patch on the bar standards of the hotel bar only a few yards away.
Finally, and most in need of a rethink are the toilets for the marquee. I understand that toilet blocks for marquees cannot be easy, but there surely must be something more suitable on the market.
All of these paled into insignificance given the joy, the ambiance and the general service of the weekend, but I have to say, as a host of the wedding party I was more than a little concerned and these drops in service level.
