“Girly night out”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

Decided to try the new place in town for a girly night out after hearing only good reports and thouroughly enjoyed our meal. Great value for money and great friendly service. Wide variety on the menu which offered not only their specialiality Italian menu but also good choice of scottish dishes available too. Will be returning here for sure.

Just returned from overnight at the Altamount. It was with a discount voucher for £49 for the double room. The room was nice, shower was big. It was very nice. Had a meal in the restaurant which was expensive for what we got and the quality was not worth it - £46 for fish/chips and salmon steak with broccoli as a side with a pint of beer and glass of wine. The menu was may be too extensive, may be better to be better quality than offer a lot of choice - huge Italian selection and Scottish also. The broccoli was quite watery though crisp. I asked for the 'Mixed Veg' side dish but they only had broccoli that night. The salmon was drowned by the buttery sauce which was a little watery also. My partner said the fish and chips were nice. It was a nice meal though for what we received at the quality it was expensive. Be careful, before the meal focaccia was given to us in the bar and that was added to the bill without consent. Not a problem as we ate it and would expect to pay but really should have been asked if we wanted it or would have preferred not to be given something we don't ask for but are expected to pay for it. Staff were really nice and friendly. The hotel was so quiet, hardly anyone there. The grounds had peacocks which were beautiful(we saw 9). As a deal it was really good value and in a lovely location in Blairgowrie and area for exploring. From some past reviews which were less than kind I think the hotel has gone through a refurbishment as the main areas were lovely. Our room was nice, though did feel it a little cold. My partner found the cooked breakfast a little cold though mine was fine. It was a good cooked breakfast, though no fruit. I don't know what the normal rates are but with the Voucher it was a good deal.

What a surprise. Had dinner twice now at this newly opened Italian Restaurant in Blairgowrie. The food was amazing on both occasions. Quite simply the best Canelloni and Lasagne we have had since visiting Italy. The staff were efficient, knowledgable and courteous. Be sure to give it a try if you are visiting the area.

a quite surreal experience.... on arrival at 7pm Monday 14th april told the Italian chef had returned to Italy; there would be no food for the duration of my 2 possible 3 night stay! having sourced nourishment elsewhere in the town retired to my room (only guest in the hotel!!) TV & electric fire tripped.... went to bed circa 11pm only to be woken at 2AM by the remaining, staff post a session in the bar, having a prolonged very noisy disagreement throughout the hotel corridors until 3:15AM - needless to say checked out the following morning!!!
Volatility the watch word ( to even a world traveller) - perfectly pleasant surroundings, if you like the unknown could be worth a visit....

Room Tip: all the rooms are different & quiet surroundings - just watch out for the staff!

The hotel and the restaurant were closed at this time and the New Owners were not present. This only guest was here exceptionally and has been received by the old staff because he wanted to rent a cottage next to the hotel for a long term. We are terribly sorry for this bad experience. It is difficult to explain on the web that there are now new owners at the Altamount House Hotel with goodwill.

Dined here last night with 3 friends. After mixed reviews from friends who had been, not sure what to expect. However cannot fault from when we arrived, nice welcome, shown to bar for a drink while looking at menu. Very good selection from Italian (naturally) to chicken, Steak, Beef. All ordered pasta dishes, which arrived lovely and hot with not a long wait. Dessert - had the Chocolate Fudge Cake with Coconut Ice cream, well say no more - scrumptious. About 20 other people in restaurant. Service good and very attentive. Will go back.

We had dinner at the recently refurbushed and newly opened Italian restaurant within the hotel.It was not very busy being a Wednesday evening but as we were a party of five we made our own atmosphere.The level of service we received was exceptional and the food was,well simply amazing!All courses were well cooked,presented and good value for money.The only down side being the lack of Tiramisu!Really looking forward to finding an excuse for a return visit.

We were checked into a room out the back of the hotel, in the "courtyard", more of a converted barn. We had a corner room, with no windows at all and twin beds. When you flushed the toilet some "liquid" spurted out an exterior drain pipe.
The younger staff were friendly enough, can't say much for the rest. Absolute rip off.

The New Owners have taken your review into account. Since your stay the hotel and the courtyard rooms have been renovated. We are sorry for your bad experience. It’s very difficult to have the opportunity to explain that the hotel has new owners now and to cancel the bad reviews on this page.​

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Altamount House Hotel in Blairgowrie has reopened in March 2014 under new owners after extensive refurbishments. It is a family run business and we like to think that we can provide you with a "home from home" experience in one of Scotland's most magnificent Counties. The Georgian house was built as a private home in 1800, and although restored in some areas we have managed to maintain all of its Periodic Charm. Altamount House is set within 6 acres of beautifully peaceful gardens and mature woodlands in the heart of Perthshire and we welcome you from near or afar. Although the Hotel is only a 5 minute walk into the Blairgowrie town centre, it is very quiet and secluded in its grounds, which makes it a perfect venue for Weddings, Conferences or just a romantic break for 2!!! If you prefer a more action packed holiday Golf, Fishing, Shooting and Skiing are all on our doorstep. Rosemount and Lansdowne Championship Golf courses are just 1 mile away, with a further 40 courses within 10-30 minutes from us. ... more   less
