We had a wonderful stay here and not for the first time, we cannot recommend this hotel and all the staff highly enough. In our opinion there is no place better in Pitlochry and we will be back

All good here. Nice room and 5 minutes walk from town. Staff nice. Disappointing that the restaurant was not open on either night of our stay.

Very good 8,0
Pleasant Staff, clean and very warm, we had to turn the radiators off and sleep with the windows open. Confusion over breakfast, apparently you have to tick that option when booking....otherwise it will cost you a whopping £12 per person for breakfast!! Certainly not worth £12
