Don’t stay in the outside rooms
The room itself was dated and old. The condition wasn’t great and it needs a massive update. Looked like something out of the 80’s. Shower was cold. We were put in an outside room when arrived early as our room wasn’t ready which was our choice but the rooms were really not great. I can’t compare to the main hotel but I was told this was old staff quarters which they are now renting out and it shows. The condition really was bad. Needs a whole new interior.

Bad Management
Our booking was a prepaid booking unfortunately my husband recently took a stroke and the manager refused any refund. We would have given our booking to a family member however after our dealings with the hotel and very recent reviews given by others we would not like anyone to stay at the hotel. Dunkeld is such a beautiful place and deserves better run establishments than this hotel

Let down by a. manager under pressure
Cleanliness was fine, reception & bar staff were so friendly. Bedrooms were comfortable. However, breakfast time was chaos both mornings. Staff getting orders wrong, running out of various food items. Some staff coped better than others but definitely did not expect to be shouted at by the manager for asking for the breakfast I had ordered that they were unable to fulfil

Room was ok , shower is tiny and overall everywhere could do with a good clean and carpets replaced. Breakfast was ok but food in the restaurant was expensive for what it was.

Seriously Worrying!
4 rooms booked for a family weeding and large family roomed booked for early entry so we could get changed beforehand. Arrived later than anticipated and no information noted on early access, had not been passe on. Room availability was restricted as rooms not ready due to loss of housekeeping. Managed to access a small room but this was not big enough for the familiy to get changed in so really frustrating making everyone stressed. Parking also tight, full spaces so had to park on street with all wedding outfits. Arrived back to htel before1am and other guests sitting as no rooms were available despite being booked and paid for, they had to sleep ion couches in the communal sitting room. This also included guests from the wedding who had a young babyand no room to access. Cooked breakfast was good but breakfast area had un out of fresh juices, tea and coffee machine overflowing, cups etc, I never received my breakfast within the group table and had to remind the waiter who had to re-order. Felt terrible for the waiter who informed us they had had enough and this was their last shift, leaving today. Staff had not turned up, the two people around were running around like headless chicken so there was duity tables, stacked dirty alcohol glasses from the previous night still to be washed, it was just chaotic. What seriously worried us was there was no-one staffing or in attendance when we returned, what if there was an emergency or FIRE!!, £160, not worth it, no help offered.

Hotel was awful very run down in general. Could not sleep first night due to Abba Tribute band on and room next to main road and old window which would shut and curtains too small for windows. No shower gel and toilet holder fell off wall. Carpet didnt look like it had been hoovered. Spare pillows didn't have covers on them and badly stained, one with blood. Water in shower cold. Breakfast was nice but very disorganised no cups available and the second morning said they had no bread to make toast. Bins lying on side out back with litter everywhere and blocked drains at side of hotel which looked like toilet paper.

Mixed review
The staircase up to our room was shabby and dirty ..had not been vacuumed. Our room had a faulty table lamp, biscuit crumbs in one of the bedside drawers and loose screws rattling around in the other cabinet. The wardrobe had dirty bed linen rolled up in the base. We were given another room but faults were evident in that a ceiling light wasn't working and during heavy rain the water dripped in onto the window sill. One of the sash windows in the 1st floor residents lounge had rotten timber in that it had fallen away from the glass pain letting cold air and rain into the sill area. That said, the bedding was clean, the bed comfortable and the shower cubicle DIDN'T have the ubiquitous black mold spots in it. I think that this hotel needs a shed load of cash injected into the upper floors to bring it up to even a reasonable standard. Staff were pretty good though !
