Won't bother repeating the glowing reviews about the food and accommodation. They're all spot on. Just got back from an overnight stay. Okay, from the outside it may look like the Psycho house (lol), but this a classy establishment - good, Scottish traditional hotel but simply oozing class. I loved the ritual at dinner with canapes in the lounge as...

Hi Keith. Thanks very much for the kind review of your stay. Delighted to hear you enjoyed yourselves. Sorry about the poor wi-fi. It is usually a strong, fast connection throughout the house and I'm sure we could have fixed it had you asked. Next time...... Thanks again and kind regards, Struan.

Spent 2 nights here in February in one of the balcony rooms which afforded us a wonderful view of Pitlochry and the hills beyond. The room was perfect with lovely toiletries from a local supplier. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and looked happy to be working there. The meals were fabulous and as a fussy vegetarian I...

I had booked this through a deal as a treat for my husband's birthday and we were hugely impressed.

Room was spotless and the whole hotel just lovely. Yes it is...

We enjoyed a 2 night break at Knockendarroch at the weekend. What a treat. It is every bit as good as the other reviewers have said. We stayed in a premier room which was just bliss - huge windows & lovely comfy big seats. From the moment we arrived we knew we were in for a treat. We were warmly...

Spent two wonderful nights at Knockendarroch with dinner on one night. Cannot praise it highly enough. From the friendly welcome to equally friendly departure, we were looked after most graciously. The owners and staff are just lovely, the public rooms really cosy and the food well-deserving of the hotel's two red rosettes. Our bedroom was on the second floor, with...

We were a group there to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday with a surprise party for her at the hotel. The staff were great and went along with all our subterfuges to keep the party a secret. The room was very comfortable, good views. The food was really excellent, good menu and very well prepared. Parking is tight but we...

Just back from a night at Knockendarroch. You normally can only book a minimum of two nights, but we only had one night available to visit. This was no problem as they had a space and what a treat this hotel is. Everything everyone says. The food is amazing, and the hotel itself is beautifully decorated and kept to a...

We have just stayed at this hotel to celebrate my 60th birthday and I can't praise it enough. We were given a warm welcome and shown around the hotel.

We stayed at Knockendarroch for a recent overnight. Included in our package was a 3 course meal and breakfast. We could not fault any part of our visit. The room and staff were lovely. The food in the restaurant was fantastic. Great selection of whisky on offer too! Only a short walk from the town centre too! Would definitely recommend.
