Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Having enjoyed the Knockendarroch welcome and high quality everything in May 2013, we repeated the experience again. Our visit was wonderful - again. Thankyou to all the Staff. Setting, food, accomodation all excellent. Thrilled to be welcomed by same people as last year. Thanks especially for providing wonderful dairy free alternatives - same high quality.

Room Tip: We've stayed in The Turret, and below. Both rooms-lovely.

Two night stay for my parents golden anniversary.
Delighted with both rooms, particularly our room - the premier four poster was superb and spacious.
Bathroom was of the highest standard with lovely big fluffy towels.
The hotel has traditional charm perfectly blended with a touch of luxury.
The food was delicious and the dinner menu had a nice variety of dishes and was totally different each night.
We loved the lounge with its roaring log fires, ideal after a splendid dinner.
The staff were so friendly throughout, really made our stay extra special.

Room Tip: Premier four poster

We stayed at this hotel for a week. The hotel is small which is what we like. All the staff were very attentive and very friendly and willing. The food was excellent. The hotel is very quiet but only takes about ten minutes to walk into town. This was our first visit but it will certainly not be the last. It makes a great place to stay with fantastic walks all around and I congratulate Liz and all her staff for the way they run this super hotel. Thank you for a wonderful time - we feel fully refreshed. You duly deserve all the accolades.

Room Tip: We had room 4 which looked over Pitlochry and across to the hills beyond. Very quiet

This was the final leg of our tour around the Highlands and it was a fantastic end to our holiday. The accommodation was of a high quality but what struck us was the outstanding service from all the staff who were very attentive and friendly and really couldn't have done more to make this a memorable experience for us.
The food in the restaurant was amongst the best we've enjoyed even in high- end restaurants. We had the scallops with black pudding mash for starters and the duck and the pork for main, all delicious and beautifully presented. We highly recommend this Hotel and hope to return soon.

Pitlochry itself is a lovely little town with friendly locals and interesting shops to mooch around.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have great views if you don't mind carrying luggage up- its worth it!

This is my second visit to this Hotel with my Mother and yet again, we were both delighted with our stay. The hotel is friendly, comfortable with attentive staff. The food and wine are first rate and the location is easy walking distance to the town. Highly recommend for a perfect relaxing weekend.

My husband and I stayed here for just one night and thoroughly loved the place. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the lounge (with open fire) was a great place to relax before dinner and the view from our room was a picture. For us the dinner was something that we talked about for days and told others about. During this trip to Scotland we also stayed at another highly recommended hotel nearby which is rated as 5 stars. However we found Knockendarroch to be superior in all categories.
We had a minor glitch with my husbands breakfast order, but the owner more than compensated us for this slight inconvenience.

We really felt that the staff make efforts to provide personal attention to their guests and regularly checked with us to see if we were wanting for anything.

We are looking forward to returning to what we now feel is our "must stay" hotel when we are visiting Scotland.
