As you exit Perth Station, you see this lovely red sandstone building sitting in beautiful grounds. And it's a few minutes' walk from the beautiful River Tay and the historic centre of Perth. Wow, we thought, what a great start to our holiday.
We went inside to register and found a small queue of fellow-guests at the reception desk - but no member of staff there. Various guests went hunting, unsuccessfully, for a receptionist and it was about 15 minutes before one appeared (this at about 1pm).
The hotel lobby was shabby and poorly decorated. However, when we got to our room (86) we found it even more shabby with cheap inadequate furnishings.
Our shower room was tiny: you have to lean over the WC to use the very small washbasin. There was nowhere to put toiletries or clothes - not even a hook on the door. The shower unit was good but there was nowhere to put the soap.
Continental breakfast was good, apart from the poor coffee. The staff were pleasant.
What a great pity that this lovely building, with splendid staircase and great location, has been allowed to decay slowly.
