Nice Hotel Overall But Could Do With A Bit Of TLC

Posted 25-Nov-2014
Staff are fabulous and very efficient! The hotel itself could do with a refurbishment! Biggest complain would be the shower! Really poor shower facilities

Lovely country house hotel

Posted 19-Nov-2014
Pros: The character and history no generic hotel here!
Cons: Hot water was lacking both morning and evening had to have lukewarm baths.
Location: See above
Perfect for our winter break. Pity about the conferences which were ongoing and noisy but understand that to keep a large Victorian establishment like this going needs more than just passing trade. Many thanks to the staff for such a restful stay. Recommend Pitlochry Festival Theatre too excellent performance of Ladykillers.

Hopes were high and stay just OK

Posted 08-Oct-2014
We had very high hopes upon arrival at this hotel. For the price, it isn't worth it in our opinion. Rooms are very outdated overall. Hotel reception was nice, restaurant staff wasn't that helpful with the exception of one younger man who joked with us during dinner and breakfast. All surrounding/outside area is beautiful, but this is easily found elsewhere.

Everything about the hotel and service was a high standard. I would find it hard to say anything bad about our stay.

Beautiful hotel and area

Posted 22-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
From the minute you enter the gates you are impressed with the beauty of the grounds and hotel. The hotel sits up on a hill with a beautiful front lawn area. We had afternoon tea here which was wonderful and relaxing. We also had dinner at the hotel and the service and food were exceptional. Our only complaint was that the front desk received a phone message for me and made no attempt to deliver the message, which caused us a 2 hour delay. The hotel is not really within easy walking distance of the town but a very short car ride will get you anywhere in town.

A grand old hotel at a steep price.

Posted 04-Sep-2014
Pros: Dble corner rm at back was spacious with a great view. Pool/spa area was nice but didn't stay open late enough. Snooker rm and buffet brkfst.
Cons: Hot tub hotter. Spa open later. An additional, larger lift. Reduced prices for rooms other than corner suites.
Location: Location was ok for stop between Edinburgh and Loch Ness. Didn't really spend much time in town and most was closed in the evenings. Lovely area.
A nice stay but price would keep us from returning again. We were a bit disappointed that it wasn't more castle-like. Was basically a big, glorious, old hotel done in grand fashion. There was only one small lift, not nearly sufficient for the size of the hotel. The double corner room ($300/night) we had was very large, beautifully decorated with King bed and with a gorgeous view out the back and side. Our travel companions had a triple room that was not quite so luxurious, much smaller and at quite a distance from our room on a separate floor. In our opinion, both rooms were overpriced, but especially the second one at $250 a night! The hotel was lovely and well maintained both inside and out offering a pool/spa area with hot tub, sauna and steam room, but spa area closed at 7 pm on weekends which was a disappointment considering the prices for rooms. The hot tub was not nearly hot enough and someone had to keep getting out to turn it back on as it would only run for about 10-15 minutes at a time. Very annoying. There was a Snooker room and table to use free of charge which was a nice amenity for our family wishing to spend time together outside the room. Outside seating and tables were provided at various places around the property for enjoying the outdoors and/or star gazing at the night sky. The included buffet style breakfast was served in a large, sunny dining room and was extensive in it's offering. Enjoyed our stay but felt prices were too high.

Blandade känslor

Posted 02-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
Fantasiskt läge och ett hotell med "atmosfär". Snygga fräscha rum i gammal miljö. Dock: Restaurangen direkt dålig och utan finess. Hotellet blandar också konferenser med "vanliga" hotellgäster. I vårt fall hade vi en skrålande samling pesoner direkt under vårt fönster fram till klockan tre på natten + mycket spring i korridorer till inpå småtimmarna. Så bättre krav på konferensdeltagare om man nu skall blanda.......

They doubled booked us

Posted 26-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
They double booked us and put us in their sister hotel which was three star and no spa. Only had a few hours notice and there was no alternative so had to agree to shift. Dinner thrown in and drinks blamed a server computer probs

Schönes Hotel in toller Lage

Posted 25-Aug-2014
Pros: Das Ambiente
Cons: Ja, Gästen kein Zimmer über der Küchenentlüftung anbieten. (Zimmer 132)
Location: nettes gepflegtes Touristenörtchen. Wanderungen
Da wir nur eine Nacht Aufenthalt hatten, konnten wir nicht sehr viel unternehmen, wir haben das Hotel mehr zur Durchreise benutzt. Positiv: Swimmingpool, Sauna etc. bei schlechtem Wetter kostenlos nutzbar. (klein, aber gut). Imposantes Schlosshotel, sehr schöne Lage, Zimmer klein, aber sauber und komfortabel. Leider lag unser Zimmer siehe unten direkt über der Küche, d. h. Nachtruhe erst nach Anruf 22.15 Uhr und dann wieder "Lärm" ab 6 Uhr morgens. Nach Reklamation an der Rezeption sofort Preisnachlass bekommen. War in Ordnung. Frühstücksbuffet sehr gut, vor allem nicht 08/15-Geschirr und nett eingedeckt. Sicher kann man in der Umgebung wunderbar wandern und auch größere und kleinere Touren unternehmen.
