what can we say, this place was a delight in all respects. we stayed 5 nights and ate in every night. The food, the service and the accomodation was all a delight . Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was of a very high standard and delicious. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, and look forward to visiting again in the near future.

The Premier room was a lot smaller than we expected and looked a bit tired BUT the quality of decoration was very good. The Spanish lady who seemed to be the mainstay of ops was excellent. She couldn't have been more helpful; she got the small things right that make the difference between good and excellent service. The food was fantastic. So, don't let first impressions put you off. It's a great place and we will go back.

Dear ROBBO57, Thank you for recommending the Knockendarroch. I am delighted that you enjoyed the food and the service - Maria is very happy with your comments. The hotel has undergone major refurbishments over the past three years and your room was redecorated just a few months ago with Zoffany wallpaper. We would love to see you again so please give us a call and we can match the best room for you - maybe one of our balcony rooms which are more contemporary with great views.
Best wishes from Liz, and the Team

We recently had a short break at this hotel, it was excellent. Rooms were spotless, the service excellent and the food was great! And we are very fussy! Will definitely go back to this hotel! we had a second floor room, stairs from first to second quite steep, but had the benefit of a balcony with stunning views!

Lovely hotel , beautiful balcony room to relax and take in the stunning views.
Food was excellent but one gripe ... at £200 a night I feel it's a bit mean to charge £4.95 supplement for a drop of sauce with the steak !

Room Tip: Go for rooms 9 or 10 for a balcony with stunning views

Dear 'Anonyy', I'm so glad you found the views from the balcony stunning and the food excellent. I hope the surprise flowers and chocolates went down well! The supplement is for the Aberdeen Angus Beef (not the sauce) which we offer on occasion as an extra choice for our guests.
It would be lovely to see you again.

We booked a last minute weekend stay to escape from the city after a hectic week. From start to finish our stay was bliss - very relaxing, in beautiful surroundings with incredibly nice, helpful staff. The room was lovely, very prettily decorated in pale green and white. Everything was absolutely spotless. The food was consistently delicious and waiting staff couldn't be kinder. A lovely touch was a cream tea taken outside in the sunshine (I know, hard to believe after our monsoon summer!)We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and will be back.

Lovely little 12-bedroom hotel in the heart of Pitlochry. Very stylish bedrooms, lovely comfortable lounge. Delicious menu changed daily - nice variety of dishes, good sized portions and well presented. The service and the staff couldn't be faulted - I would have no hesitation in returning and also delighted to recommend the hotel to others.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the bedrooms (Rooms 10, 11 and 12) on the top floor as they have fab views over the t...
