Reviewed 22 October 2017 via mobile

Brilliant value for money! Friendly staff. Room was quiet and of a high standard, very clean, comfy bed. Breakfast was great for price. Parking was limited but able to park right outside 5:30pm till 8:30am so not an issue. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled on business

We stayed at this hotel by default as I got the date for a reservation at another wrong so had to decamp. The Royal was very easy to find, is centrally located in Blairgowrie. We were shown to our room and found it spacious enough to also have a bed settee as well as a double bed, wardrobe, a long dresser in front of one window and a small table with TV on. The room was very hot as the radiators in both bedroom and bathroom were on. The windows were old sash ones and were very difficult to open even a small amount. The decor could do with an upgrade, one net curtain had a long tear, the shower doors were pristine but the base needs to be replaced. The bed was comfortable and breakfast the following morning was delicious. The staff were very pleasant and friendly. All in all it was a comfortable stopgap but some renovations would make it even better

Room Tip: Our room was called Turnberry, very apt as we live in Ayr.

Arrived in Blairgowrie for a night stop and as I didn't know the area that well the images posted by booking.com looked good for one night. On arrival the receptionist promptly found our booking and we were allocated a room on the first floor. The room was quite large for two people and it had a sofa to sit on. Tea & Coffee facilities were provided. The ensuite had a powerful water jet for the shower and internally it was clean, there was quite a lot of dirt on the outside of the shower tray which could easily be rectified. The building is obviously a very old unit which will take a lot of TLC and more maintenance to bring it up to the standard of a 2/3 star hotel. The breakfast in the morning was a full Scottish which was very good and the chef/owner quite amusing, certainly cheering up the guests. The room rate through booking.com was £78 for a double room with free breakfast.
Hopefully the next time we pass through Blairgowrie the Royal Hotel will have the torn net curtains replaced and the sash windows repaired so that if you require fresh air the windows can be opened and locked in position. I am sure that these few things when fixed will earn you a better review as the hotel is situated centrally has a small car park to the side of the building, a good sized bar with a small dining area next to it. The cost of an evening meal is very competitive and helpings are generous although we didn't eat here. A single gin/tonic and a whiskey/ginger ale was £8, again very competitive for this area.
The bed was quite hard and were two single divans pushed together to make a double, which I am sure is acceptable for the hotel trade these days.

A comfortable room, at a very good rate (I'd phone the hotel, personally) and one of the best breakfasts I've eaten. Parking is a bit tight,but this is a small town that's managed to keep many thriving businesses that keep a hold on their own territories. I want to come back, to do some more exploring; and I'd (definitely) hope to stay at The Royal, so redolent of History!

A grubby, smelly hotel. Noisy rooms, with hoards of Chinese coming in late and leaving very early and noisily. Difficult to lock your room, old beds, the toilet flushes very poorly, but the shower was fine. My husband had to shave while leaning over the toilet- the only mirror was above the loo. Breakfast was extremely friendly.
