Reviewed July 8, 2014

Saturday 5th July 2014 at Kinloch House Hotel for lunch with friends who were successful Hoteliers and Caterers themselves, we being regular diners and they as first time visitors,
It took only minutes to realise we had again made the right choice as we relaxed in one of the three lounges for Gin and Tonics and to peruse the lunch menu and wine list. Two sizeable differences in the days menu and the wine list, one being limited, the other comprehensive, and yet both perfect in content.
The menu was just right with three or four starters, mains and puddings using local Dunkeld Smoked Salmon, beautiful Pate and my own choice of exceptional haddock Rissoto along with
blade of Beef, Corn Fed chicken and an excellent pan fried Hake. The sweet menu indicated to all a very good Pastry chef was here or in training and the Madelaines were perfect.

Not too many choices at lunch is preferable to huge menus covering the world of food.

Wine however is the exact opposite and their list was comprehensive including wine by the glass. half bottle and bottle and covering rightly a complete spectrum of choices for everyone.
One of our party who himself has many Wine Merchant Friends, one famous one who stayed across the road from Kinloch house, felt the wine list was one of the best he had seen and included several he had not seen on any wine list for years, a compliment itself.

Unobtrusive , knowledgeable service, wine decanted, presented and served with care, attention to detail, first class cooking at well below London and Aberdeen prices again makes the Kinloch a must for lunch and dinner for anyone looking for a quality and relaxed time in any weather
especially when recommended by the professional Hoteliers themselves!

It felt like we were staying in a friend’s country house rather than in a hotel.

Huge log fires, imposing stair case, over stuffed sofas, antique furniture and many interesting curios makes this a perfect country house hotel.

Our room was front facing with beautiful views over the rolling countryside. It was spacious and decorated in a traditional style with all the nice little touches you would expect from a luxury establishment.

On arrival we had tea and shortbread in the sweetest of conservatories.

We enjoyed our pre dinner drinks and canapés in the sumptuous sitting room before being shown to our table in the pretty dining room. Dinner was as good as it gets, everything was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. I also loved the petit fours. Breakfast was also excellent , no chaotic self- service here.

The staff were so friendly, helpful and efficient they could not have made our stay any more pleasant.

The grounds of the hotel are stunning, we walked up through the trees to find a walled area with a large green door, upon opening the door we found to my delight, a secret garden filled with an abundance of plants, flowers and statues with the most amazing view.

If you like peace and quiet in traditional surroundings with a touch of luxury, look no further than Kinloch Country House Hotel

Returning to this most beautiful country house hotel was so exciting, particularly as were with new friends, one of whom was from Texas. I thought, there is no better way to introduce him to Scotland than stay at Kinloch House--so elegant and charming-a night he will never forget. The accommodation is exquisite and the views of the countryside astounding. Once again, the food, the ambiance, the staff...we cannot wait to return..thank you Kinloch House and we will haste back!

Staying with friends in June and visiting Kinloch House Hotel for my first time was a truly great experience , and I will certainly return again in the future ! Set in rolling country side at Blairgowrie the scenery is beautiful . On entering the Hotel you get the feel of old charm splendor , and that I found throughout . Our room was large , spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed , and a lovely shower/bath . The views from our window were brilliant . Our stay got even better on entering the restaurant as the service and food was 1st class. The staff were very friendly and pleasant ....nothing was too much trouble ! This is a must stay hotel without doubt, and I can't wait to return !

Excellent hotel, accommodation, food,service and location all deserve 5 stars.
Marlee suite was lovely with nice decor, very clean and tidy finished with a comfortable four poster bed. The turn down service was a lovely surprise and a nice touch at the end of the evening.
Food in the restaurant was of top class quality, beautiful meal with excellent service. Very nice menu with good choice. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay and nothing was a problem. Hotel is decorated with an old world charm feel of a hunting lodge with lovely pieces and pictures throughout. Even the black bear seemed in place! The drawing rooms were very welcoming and comfortable, where roaring log fires would have been if the temperature was cooler. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a five star break in a lovely part of Scotland,

Room Tip: Marlee suite was large and comfortable with a four poster bed and separate sitting area. Large bath...

Stayed for one night for a getaway. Lovely small feel to the hotel, traditional decor, unique pieces rather than mass produced chain stuff. Located in the middle of farmland so lovely setting. We stayed in the Marlee junior suite which was very spacious with a 4 poster. No shower though. Food was lovely, portion sizes perfect so you could manage 3 courses. Only 3 choices per course. My dessert was amazing! Salted caramel iced parfait with honeycomb and apple purée. Breakfast nice, but choice again quite limited. Would stay again.
