Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We are a family of 5 and were on a roadtrip from Brighton to inverness. It was about 7pm at night and after failing to find a place to camp we stopped of at the red brolly inn to enquire about rooms. We encountered the owner and the mangerand were immediately made to feel welcome even though they were busy completing the refurbishment and not officially open. Luckily for us they had 2 rooms made up as we needed a room for our 3 teenagers and another for myself and my husband. The owner showed us the rooms which were both ensuite and freshly decorated and well equiped. We were very happy with the price and as a beautiful touch the owner said he would include dinner and breakfast for all 5 of us. To be honest we were not expecting fine dining but that is exactly what we got. A 5 star 3 course dinner which was obviously cooked by a professional chef at the top of her game. The next morning the chef served us a bespoke breakfast of omlette , cooked scottish breakfast alongside fresh fruit and cereal . We had nothing but 5 star service from all 3 of the staff. They demonstarted what hospitality should be and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel , if for the fine dining and hospitality alone. We left feeling refreshed and very well looked after! I understand these guys have just taken over the hotel and all I want to say is keep doing what you are doing! Thankyou for an amazing stay.

Dear Sharon, Thank you for your wonderful review! We loved having you 5 staying at the hotel and enjoyed serving you and looking after you on this very rainy day. It would mean a lot to us if you could post this review onto our The Ballinluig Hotel tripadvisor page, since The Red Brolly one is being closed down very soon and we would love to have this glowing review on the relevant site. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g6902411-d21141843-Reviews-The_Ballinluig_Hotel-Ballinluig_Pitlochry_Perth_and_Kinross_Scotland.html All the best, The Ballinluig Hotel Team

Stopped for food on Saturday 22nd August didn't realise it had been taken over, we were more than surprised when we could get a table no bother.
The place has had some renovation work done since the last time we were there the staff could not have been more attentive and pleasant, they were doing a 4 course taster menu for £20 per head which we thought was good value for money.
We had a vegetarian with us and they were amazingly helpful and tended to his needs, the food was absolutely amazing and presentation was superb this was by far the best locally sourced produce we have tasted, we can't thank them all enough for the beautiful food and experience and will be back soon. Some photos of our food.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We enjoyed hosting you and hope to see you again sometime. If not too much of an inconvenience for you, could you perhaps post this review onto our new tripadvisor page of The Ballinluig Hotel, since we are going to close down the Red Brolly. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g6902411-d21141843-Reviews-The_Ballinluig_Hotel-Ballinluig_Pitlochry_Perth_and_Kinross_Scotland.html Best wishes, The Ballinluig Hotel Team

We stopped here purely as a meeting place near the A9 with free wifi. We got way more than expected.
We had a meeting, WiFi, warm and friendly welcome and the most amazing breakfast ever for less than £20.
I can't recommend the food enough. My colleague and I both had a roll with bacon, haggis and potato scone. The bacon was thick cut and the haggis was clearly fresh from the butcher. No supermarket junk here! It was absolutely fantastic.
The owner's daughter welcomed us, settled us in and gave us a brief history of the place (we asked) then left us alone to get on with our work.
I'll definitely be back!

We have been to the Red Brolly a few times and it now has new owners who are giving it a face lift. It is now fresh and inviting. The only downside was that the room was very cold as there was no heating. In the morning we wanted a cup of tea in our room but there was no milk. I phoned reception but got no answer.. Breakfast was ok but very frugal. We will go back again though as it is handy for visiting our family.

Under new ownership and being renovated though the crisis. Really excellent food in the restaurant. 4 courses for £20 in best Copenhagen style - local, fresh, wild etc. Worth a special trip just for this. Very attentive personal service., under semilockdown conditions too. Just off the road, so not the place to work to the wild out the foront door, but easy to find easy to park. Close to all the beautiful sights of Perthshire.

We have stayed here before and is under new management.
We weren't disappointed at all, our room had been re decorated and was really well presented. The food was great and the breakfast really well served by a cracking chef. We pull a boat and they even sorted a parking space to keep it safe overnight. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights to look around the area, and this hotel was certainly cheaper than staying in Pitlochry or Dunkeld. The room was clean and the shower was fine, but the mattress on the bed was most uncomfortable. Both my husband and I had what felt like springs poking up in it and we didn't sleep well because of it. We could also feel anytime someone walked in the hallway because the floor boards were loose and the bedside table used to rise and fall with people walking past. This didn't keep us wake though. Breakfast was tasty. If the mattress had been comfortable, we would have rated this hotel higher.

Stayed one night to visit the Enchanted Forest. The staff were extremely helpful in arranging an earlier check in for us due to visiting the forest. Very clean room and lovely and warm. Scottish breakfast was superb! One of the best breakfasts I have had. Fantastic stay and will stay again. Attentive and friendly staff.
