“Return Visit”
Reviewed 16 August 2012

At the beginning of May this year my wife and I visited the Knockendarroch for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay so we decided to return this week to celebrate my birthday. We were not disappointed as we were well looked after by Liz and her team. Our room was well appointed and spotlessly clean. The meals, both dinner and breakfast, were excellent. Indeed we are looking forward to our next visit in the not too distant future.

My Husband and I have just returned from the Knockendarroch Hotel after a two night stay gifted to us by our children for our 40th wedding anniversary. This hotel is a jewel in Pitlochry's crown! The staff couldn't have been more helpful, pleasant and genuinely warm.

The food, at dinner and breakfast is outstanding, with the dinner menu changing daily.

Our room, which had a small balcony was immaculate (the standard throughout the hotel), well furnished and fresh. The bed was huge and so comfortable. I have to comment on the towels, as they were snow white, thick and "fluffy". The balcony was a bonus, as the weather was excellent, and I got some great pictures as a memento.

The lounge is comfortable and very pleasant to sit in. One of the things that impressed me was the immaculate standard of the painting of the cornices and ceiling roses in the lounge and dining room - great workmanship.

We were kindly given a complimentary drink to celebrate our anniversary,

Downside - we only had two nights and could happily have stayed at Knockendarroch for much longer.

Congratulations to everyone who work hard to make this hotel experience just a wee bit special.

We will most definitely be back..

Dear tamtheman, Thank you so much for your kind review and recommendation. It makes us very happy to know that you both enjoyed your special anniversary at the Knockendarroch. Yes, the cornices and ceiling roses are intricate - and the painter was very relieved when he had finished! Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay, it means a lot to us.
Best wishes from all the Team at Knockendarroch

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.
