The AA gives this hotel 3 stars and a rosette for good food.
As the hotel is well above average, we give 5 stars.
The hotel is situated at the edge of loch Faskally, a fairly short walk from the centre of the town of Pitlochry.
Our first impression was of an extremely well maintained country-house-style hotel.
The staff, particularly the family who own the hotel, were always friendly.
The public rooms and corridors are bright and the fine-art paintings on the walls, prints and originals, are colourful and cheerful.
Our en suite bedroom was in pristine condition.
Sadly, the beds were not as wide as you would nowadays find in top hotels in Asia.
The food is worthy of its AA rosette.
There is free tea and coffee, with small pieces of cake, available in the afternoons.
The Green Park would seem to suit the sort of people who like to explore the region by car, or bike, and who are happy to read a good book when it rains.
The town of Pitlochry itself has two problems: 1. it can be wet and windy 2. it is boring compared to places such as Edinburgh or Glasgow; the population is very elderly; it has become a bit down-market.
Pitlochry has a famous theatre, but we found it lacked the character it had in the past. It now seems to be run like some over-staffed Stalinist enterprise.More
