Just back from a 2 night stay at the hotel as a Christmas present to my boyfriend. Half price Groupon with tea and scones on arrival and full use of the leisure facilities, great offer! First impressions the resort was lovely, but was not happy upon check in when we were told that the pool, sauna, hot tub etc. were all closed for the day for maintenance. I understand this is essential work but we had arrived at 2pm expecting to use the facilities (which we had paid for.) I had also phoned to check the day before and was told this was all in order so could have been informed then. Lady at reception was not particularly apologetic and no compensation was offered, though I did choose not to complain at the time per my boyfriends request.
I agree with previous comments that a nice bar area really should be available in one of the dining areas, both nights we went into Aberfeldy itself for dinner and drinks (lovely Indian restaurant!) Breakfast was nice though, good variety of options. We had a standard double room that was spacious& clean with a bath and an excellent shower. Tv was a nightmare though we only really tried it because it was there. Bed was pretty uncomfortable too, with a weird bump in the middle of the 2 sides?
Birks of Aberfeldy walk was great! 2 minutes from the hotel (we saw a red squirrel!) We also went to the Dewars whisky experience, a short walk from the town, which was also great fun and the staff were lovely. Overall a nice stay with a few areas that could have been improved, would have been disappointed had I paid full price but the offer was excellent. The hot tub in the leisure facilities really was the charm.
