We have stayed at Achray House twice this year. The hotel is lovely, set on Loch Earn with a beautiful view from all the public areas and most bedrooms. The owners are very friendly and helpful and make the hotel feel like a home-from-home.
We stayed this time in room 6 (Mountain View room) which had a huge comfortable bed, plenty of storage, flat screen TV and was very nicely decorated. The iron and ironing board were very handy!
The public rooms are gorgeous - there is an open fire, large comfortable sofas, a good selection of books and lots of board games so if the weather is not that great you can while away a good many hours watching the changing weather over the loch. There is also a patio area at the front of the hotel for nice days.
One of the best things about Achray House is the food. The menu changes daily and everything we had was excellent. Highlights for me were the black rice pudding and the seaweed panna cotta - good to get something a bit different and these were delicious.
The wine list is varied and has about 8 or 9 wines available by the glass. Prices were very reasonable and the bottle we had (Broken Shackle Red) was lovely. Husband was pleased with the selection of malt whiskies especially as they are served in a Glencairn glass.
Breakfast was excellent with a good selection as well as the standard 'full Scottish' - smoked haddock with poached egg and scrambled egg with smoked salmon are available. The toast is also worth a mention! Everything was well cooked and very tasty.
All in all we had a lovely relaxing time at Achray House and will undoubtedly be back.
