“An absolutely beautiful old Scottish country house”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Just back from an overnight stay at Kinloch Hotel. What a fantastic place. The accommodation, surroundings, food, staff and range of whisky on the bar are superb. My husband is wheat intolerant and my friend severely lactose intolerant. The chef did them both proud with no fuss for afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast. There was even a choice of menu for them both, which my lactose intolerant friend could not believe. The chocolate cake made for them for afternoon tea was great - it would have been rude not to have a sample! I had the most wonderful risotto as a starter - not something I would often risk because it can go so badly wrong! The rooms are beautifully decorated and the beds very comfortable. Service is all you could wish for but discrete. We will be back again as soon as we can save up - you get what you pay for!

the hotel is superbly run, in a delightful setting close to Blairgowrie. Everything was just perfect and it was a real treat for my husband and I. We loved the superior bedroom with beautiful view of the distant setting sun, and the public rooms were very nice too, a series of cosy spaces in various rooms to suit all tastes. Dining was high end, well prepared delicious dishes and beautifully served - a small but select menu, guaranteed to give you an entirely fresh and individual experience, and it was all just so professionally done without any of those annoying supplementary charges sadly so many places impose upon set dinner prices these days, an excellent wine selection too, and the proprietors genuinely go out of their way to make sure you are getting the most out of your stay, we had no sooner mentioned we would like to go walking and the proprietor printed some local options for us. Can strongly recommend on all counts.

Lovely log fires, excellent service, some interesting curiosities, what you would want from a country house hotel. dinner was very good. We missed out on the afternoon tea we arrived too late, would have liked to have tried that too.

This is a truly excellent hotel. Maybe it's because of its small size but the staff are very attentive to your every need, are eager to please all the time and all of them seem to know you by name and by room number. The hotel has a wonderful ambiance throughout with two formal lounge areas and a separate comfortable seating area (like the lounges in front of an open fire) in the reception area.
There is an attractive bar and a small restaurant where the food served is faultless as is the service in it. A great breakfast is served, cooked to order so hot and nourishing. Afternoon tea is also well worth trying. We can't wait for an excuse to return.

Had a wonderful 3 day stay at Kinloch House. We stayed in the Marlee suite which was just beautiful and so comfortable. The atmosphere is totally relaxed and the staff are all so friendly and helpful - they can't do enough for you. Service is extremely efficient but discreet.
Breakfast was served the way breakfast should be served, fresh and always beautifully cooked. We dined in and it was obvious that Chef took great pride in the excellent dishes he produced. We highly recommend a visit to Kinloch House. Thank you Paul and all the other members of staff for making our stay such a joy.

stayed one night for my wives b day recently having afternoon tea BBnB,excellent value in this Relais & chateaux hotel which is everything a scottish country house hotel should be.Stunning location south facing overlooking a field of highland cattle,a stones throw from a famous fishing loch.
From the moment we entered to the aroma of woodsmoke and the friendly but understated welcome we knew that this would be a good experience and were not dissapointed in any way.Our room(no 1) was huge wth a superking sized bed ,sofa and flat screen tv,the ensuite modern was with bags of hot water.

Just stayed overnight , with afternoon tea , dinner and breakfast next morning , in a superior kingsize ,food , service , atmosphere , in fact everything about the stay was wonderful. There should apparently be a swimming pool , which I was informed not availible due to some problem , but which did not affect either my own nor my wifes enjoyment of our visit to the place. What more could one ask for than the wonderful large comfy bed we had , great food with really friendly staff eager to help from arrival to departure , all in a lovely setting , handy for the various reasons most visitors would visit Scotland.
