Moness Resort
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Aberfeldy
Reviewed September 2, 2011

We had a Saturday night at this hotel. Room was faultless and the staff were friendly and efficient. One problem was that the restaurant was fully booked for dinner so we ended up having a bar snack. Good quality but not our first choice. The ambiance is more akin to my local David Llyod Club than a hotel. This resort is more time share than hotel.
Which brings me to my heading. They have just telephoned my home to enquire how I enjoyed my visit, at least that is as much as I listened to. By doing that they have ensured I will never go back.

Had dinner in restaurant both nights and the food is excellent as is the breakfast the pool facilities are also great although the jaccuzi could have been warmer!

This was our first visit to the Moness and having booked on line we were initially surprised that our evening meal bookings were not on record. This meant we ended up having dinner quite late. Not a problem as we thought it bode well for the food if they were full in the Restaurant. However, the restaurant was more or less empty and had the atmosphere of a 1980's Butlins. The decoration was old and it looked like it was midway through a refit.

The food on the first night was lovely although it took far too long to get the food to the table and on atleast one occassion, the other families on the same sitting gave up waiting for puddings to be brought out.

We stayed 3 nights and the menu was the same on all 3 nights. However, curiously, what you got on your plate differed as if the chef wasnt sure what he was meant to serve up ! I am a veggie so was delighted with the full Veggie breakfast but only having 1 choice of evening meal to have 3 days in a row was a bit dull....

The pool area was nice enough as were the games rooms...

Now, onto the bed rooms !! Freshly decorated with clean bed linen and towels BUT a dodgy TV system and the constant noise of slamming fire-doors and overhead creaking floor boards did get to me in the end. Also, the toiletries were really quite cheap and I doubt any kind of lather was possible from the Sea Cucumber shampoo... glad I had taken my own products. Ok so its just knit picking but having just come up from another hotel in the City, it stood out a mile...

I would go back, mainly because it was close for the Horse trials.

Thank you for your taking your time to review Moness Resort on a Trip advisor.

We are very pleased to read there was lots you liked at the resort, including the lovely food and the delightful 'veggie' breakfast.

Naturally, some your points are slightly disappointing and certainly against the general trend of positive feedback we tend to receive.

We have noted your comments regarding the vegetarian options for dinner. We are aware that there is a demand for more vegetarian choice and having spoken to our Head Chef, we are looking to make changes in the very near future.

The level of noise you are referring to is highly unusual; we will investigate and hopefully find solutions.

All feedback we receive is greatly appreciated and is used constructively to improve the overall guest experience, thank you once again and we hope to welcome you back to Moness Resort soon.

We had a 2 day break to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday and went on a DBB basis to the hotel. We got an upgrade to a superior room as part of the package. Our room was really well furnished with an enormous bathroom! The room was gorgeous, staff couldn't be nicer but hte really outstandijg part was the quality of the evening meal. I have done a lot of business travel and eaten in many hotels and restaurants but can honestly say that these were amongst the best meals I have had. The restaurant was very quiet although the resort was busy - don't understand why!
Only slight downside is that the building eith the restaurant, reception and pool is getting a bit tired but the hotel room, staff and food well outweighed that. We would definatley go back.
