Stayed one night in early February on our way north. In season the hotel gets fully-booked months ahead for wedding functions etc which makes it an uncertain bet for an overnight (for example we were unable to re-book one night in late-July). Our cavernous first floor room overlooking Bridge Street was soulless in terms of lighting and decor. The ceiling...

We stayed in Room 17 which is the suite and it was amazing. The room was spacious and the beds really comfortable. We thought that we would hear traffic noise as the room overlooks a main road in and out of Dunkeld but we didn't hear a thing and we had a great nights sleep while we were there. We...

Had a great weekend in this hotel. Staff were particularly friendly and helpful. Dinners were excellent - so nice to get breakfast freshly cooked. The hotel is dog friendly (although our dog was not so friendly!!) and in a great location for walks. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again soon.

Very good stay at this hotel in the lovely village of Dunkeld. It is essentially a set aside of good quality rooms above a pub/bar. But the place is very characterful with warm, hard-working staff with good beers, a great breakfast and all in a terrific location. We had a great time and the place is highly recommended. Wi-Fi is...

One night stay on 28th January 2017 proved to be very disappointing. Couldn't fault a thing last time. Were given room 14 and it was absolutely freezing. The heater had not been put on and even though we put it on for hours it was not adequate to heat the room. The following morning we tried to use the shower...

Touring the Scottish Highlands in the winter can be very risky. Some places are just not open and others can be of a poor standard. The Atholl Arms was open and is of good quality. Coff arrived promptly and well prepared. A charming waitress brought the coffee out to us in the lounge overlooking the River Tay. The sun streamed...
