First and foremost no TV in the bedroom - hurrah. Such a charming house packed full of lovely chintz curtains and furniture covers. Beds were so comfy and spotlessly clean. Beautiful old furniture including stunning carved monks benches and grandfather clock. Hosts Sabrina and Norbert were so lovely and welcoming. They were able to advise us on some nice places to see locally. Breakfast was smashing and very personal. None of the impersonal buffet style breakfasts that you see in most guest houses. I had a haggis omelette which was delicious. Will definitely be back.

Driving in Scotland was much more slow going than in the U.S. and we knew we weren't going to make it to our destination before being completely exhausted. We stopped in this little town and asked at 3 different places if they had rooms available (unfortunately they didn't) and we were recommended this charming place. It was close to 11pm and the hosts were so gracious and had a small single room for our 16 y.o. son and a room next door with 2 beds for my husband, daughter and me. Our room did have a bathroom, our son had his own private own across the hall from his room. The price was very good for the 2 rooms. Breakfast was delicious and interesting! I loved listening to the host explain some of the wonderful foods! This place is really neat and I highly recommend it.

I cannot recommend this hotel too highly. I spent a week here with my partner, and we enjoyed every moment. The rooms are, well, a bit back in time (1950s? 1900s?), come to think of it, the whole experience is a bit back in time, but it merely adds to the charm. The proprietors are forthcoming, helpful and considerate, and my only regret is that we were unable to stay longer. The garden is also beautiful, and if the weather is..er.. challenged..., you cannot really blame the hotel-keeper for everything, other than choice of location (and as I understand it, it was the parents of the present management who are to blame for that). If you arrive and have no idea what to do, they will tactfully organise you to the extent that you imagine that the choice was your very own.

I note other commenters have disparaged this hotel, some in rather uncivil language. They are wrong, and travellers should ignore their comments. The problem would not have been the hotel, but rather a mismatch in expectations. The lack of TV in the rooms is a feature, rather than a fault, and I cannot imagine anyone wanting to come to this beautiful part of Scotland only to be umbilically attached to an American soap opera. If you want to watch TV, stay at home (although I think that there is in fact a TV in their rather beautiful lounge). Others have criticised the lack of choice in the breakfasts. The breakfasts are culturally appropriate, if noticeably traditional. "Darm mit Charme", so to say (Die Verwaltung spricht auch deutsch). If you want a salad bar try Eastern Europe, and if you want Muesli, you could do worse than Swizerland. Actually if you want something rather different from normal British fare, a polite request the day before might well find the management receptive and willing to go out of their way to help. But Pitlochry is not Greenwich Village or Hampstead, and there are limits beyond which local supermarkets might struggle. It may be (it is!) the biggest place between Perth and Inverness, but note its population: 2,776 in 2011, according to Wikipedia.

Finally note that not all bedrooms are ensuite (but you pay less), so universal luxury is only strictly a yesteryear experience. But luckily our room was ensuite, and the bath was longest I have come across in many a year.

All in all, a definite excellent, and down with the naysayers!

Fasganeoin is a medium-sized Victorian 'country house', slightly off the main road coming in to Pitlochry, just after the petrol station up a private drive. Look out for the house sign just before the road goes under the railway bridge. Both the house and the management are full of character and interest, and the place exudes quiet bourgeois class.

I stayed in the single room, which in itself is unusual as very few guest houses cater for single people these days and just charge double room rates which are unaffordable. The room was cosy with a view to the large tree-girt garden, and had its private bathroom across the landing. The manager, Sabrina, was very helpful, chatty and interesting, as was, in a different way, her brother who's very handy for tips on hillwalking and full of gossip on the area. The family are of German heritage and advertise that German is spoken.

There's a resident's lounge, handy for the not infrequent (ahem!) days when the weather's dreich. The pubs and restaurants of Pitlochry are 10 minutes or so walk away.

A nice touch is that there are no accursed TVs in rooms, so you don't get disturbed by your deaf neighbour playing X Factor of an evening, and you don't get distracted.

Other small but nice touches are that the breakfast tea is made with leaves, that preserves and butter are on plates, and there isn't a portion pack in sight.

I will stay again as it's an interesting place run by interesting people, and Pitlochry is good for reaching a number of peaks (including a few Munros) if you're into the hillwalking.

Lovely country house hotel well located in Pitlochry.....5 mins walk to town. Our hosts were just lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were beautifully furnished in keeping with the style of the house. Very charming place and breakfast was excellent. Very good value and would recommend visiting this charming house.
