Knockendarroch Hotel & Restaurant
Ranked #1 of 17 Hotels in Pitlochry
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 February 2014

I decided to treat my husband to a one night stay at the knockendarroch house hotel,and it certainly was a treat!
We were made very welcome(even by the cat who loiters at the door hoping to sneak in) and found every member of staff friendly,helpful and professional.
We were in room 2,a spotlessly clean, lovely bright room with all you would expect and found it to be very comfortable,the only slight criticism would be that the bath seemed a little shorter than normal,but adequate.
The dining room was cosy and the meal was faultless,I have been fortunate enough to eat at some very good restaurants, here and abroad, and the food at knockendarroch was as good as any of those with more awards.To be honest, if you are a plain eater the menu may not suit you,and when my main course of guinea fowl and my husband's venison arrived I thought the portions seemed a bit small but both meals were well balanced and filling and most importantly.... delicious.
Service in the restaurant was very good at dinner and then at breakfast the following morning.
I would be very happy to stay here again,in fact, I look forward to it, and would be happy to recommend knockendarroch hotel to anyone,especially" foodies".

We have just returned from a two night stay in this great hotel in Pitlochry. The balcony room had a great view over the town and the valley. It was modern, warm, very well appointed and spotlessly clean. The bed was large and very comfortable and the en suite shower/bathroom was well stocked with quality toiletries. The service throughout was excellent. The staff were all very friendly and attentive without being at all intrusive. The food was superb on our dinner bed and breakfast package. Pre dinner canapés were served in the atmospheric lounge with leather chairs and comfortable settees next to two cosy log fires. Dinner in the restaurant is very impressive with an excellent choice of dishes in a three course menu featuring local produce. The menu was different each evening and the quality and presentation I must say compares with any high end hotel. (and I have stayed in many worldwide ). The local venison and lamb was so tender and perfectly cooked. Breakfast was equally as good. The whole hotel has a lovely warm welcoming atmosphere and is very conveniently placed for the town which is a few minutes walk only to the centre. We took advantage of a special winter offer so the value for money is superb. We will definitely return.

Are you reading reviews in the hope that Knockendarroch could be that special hotel you've been looking for? Well, relax, this IS the place. We've just returned home from a 2-night stay (dinner, bed and breakfast package) to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Knockendarroch only opened for the season on Fri 7th Feb and it was full, which suggests they are doing something right. It's all been said by other reviewers - spotlessly clean, comfy bed, beautiful room, lounge with 2 real log fires, great breakfast and magical fine dining in the evening. The service is spot-on, friendly, attentive but never over-bearing. Relaxed atmosphere seemed to rub-off on all the guests, giving us the chance to meet and chat with some new people. There's also space to hide if you prefer. It's also a great base from which to go walking in the beautiful Perthshire countryside. There are a large number of walks with something to suit everyone, short, long, flat and hilly.
A balanced review should include some constructive criticism but if there was anything to moan about here, we honestly didn't find it. You might find cheaper accommodation but you won't find better. Terrific value for money and we'll be back.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are slightly more expensive but well worth it.

Its the 2nd time we've stayed here and its well worth it. The service is lovely, the rooms are warm and comfortable and the food is wonderful. Especially love the pre-dinner canapés in the lounge. The leather chairs and fireplace is awesome! Makes you feel like your in another time zone. Really great how they use local products and traditional foods - exciting for a non-Scotish person!

Room Tip: View of the town - deluxe room

A last minute night away before Christmas. What a fabulous hotel. Warm friendly welcome, beautiful , spotless ensuite room with a great view of the valley. Warm comfy beds, great shower/bathroom with lovely soaps and a soft close loo!
Dinner was superb, just the right portion size and friendly service. Breakfast was the same. The lounges are warm and welcoming with super log fires to relax beside. We love it!

This truly was a gem. The service could not be faulted and the food excellent. The hotel was spotlessly clean and great for exploring Pitlochry. We particularly enjoyed sitting in front of the log fires while having a glass or two when we returned after seeing the local sites.

this hotel is so welcoming from the time you enter the building, we had a ground floor room,which was large and roomy,also very warm. Public areas are very welcoming with open fires, and comfortable furnished. access to the town is down some steps and a 5 min. walk, not so good for people with walking difficulty, car parking was very good , will be back again.

Room Tip: upper floor rooms to front of hotel have great views
