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 Rooms are very outdated overall.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.

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.

Great in the Summer

Posted 20-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
The room was quite pricy but old charm in plenty, rooms not large and would imagine in the winter they would be cold. Unfortunately we arrive at the same time as a bus load of Germans so the small lift was a bit of a wait, didn't eat there other than breakfast which was excellent and the star were all well up to speed and friendly. The open fires were a welcome treat for my wife who is Thai and feels the cold a lot would I go again not sure but that is only because of other places we saw on our tour we would like to try.

Fantastic experience

Posted 15-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
What can we say? It's a palace. We had a wonderful view from our window, and a different wonderful view from the breakfast bar (the restaurant).

Luxury in a country setting.

Posted 14-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
Everything we needed was right there in the hotel. The restaurant had a great selection, we ate both breakfast and dinner. After dinner we walked in the beautiful grounds, the scenery is amazing.
