“Again heaven on Earth.”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

This was our third visit to this beautifull small hotel. And not the last. The staff are really nice. Helpfull etc. The food dinner and breakfast is of a very high standard. Lovely room.
Great location near centre of Pitlochry.
Every time we leave we want to turn the car before we are boarding in Newcastle to go back. It is almost a second home for us thanks to the nice girls ( of the staff.) Liz the proprietor and the wonderfull cook.
We will be back next year.
Love you all.

My wife and I have just returned from a two night break at the Knockendarroch Hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed as usual, this being our possibly 4th visit to a most comfortable hotel (fluffy towels and hot showers, everything works! etc.). We stayed in room 4 which had lovely views of the hills to the west of Pitlochry. and which was beautifully furnished. The dinners and breakfasts which we had during our stay were of a very high standard. We found the staff to be at all times to be very friendly and helpful at all times. We look forward to our next visit at the Knockendarroch Hotel !

We enjoyed a fabulous stay in this beautiful hotel. We had booked a balcony room and the view was lovely. We travel quite a lot and have eaten in several Michelin starred restaurants and I have to say the food we ate here was more than comparable. The whole hotel is beautifully maintained with lovely grounds and the staff is attentive and discreet. I truly can find nothing negative to say about this little gem of a hotel. We will most certainly be making a return visit.

This hotel hit all the marks: beautiful inside and out, great location, lovely staff, and a clean and spacious room. The breakfast was delicious and not overwhelmingly large. I would love to come back and stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 3 had wonderful views over the hills and the town.

We stayed two nights last week at Room No. 3, located on the northwest side of the first floor. The rare sunny weather might have added extra charm to this beautiful hotel but I would definitely enjoy my stay even on a rainy day.

Room: The room No. 3 has big windows on both north and west sides of the building which allow plenty nature lights into the room, absolutely lovely. Spacious room with comfortable middle soft bed. Nice shower / bath. Complimentary Highland still and sparkling water is provided. Beautiful view of the South and West sides of the pretty and peaceful town.

Service: very friendly staff. Warm service makes you feel tangible difference from the chain hotels I stay for business travel in big cities. It was my husband's birthday and they took effort to put together a delicious and nicely layout desert as the birthday cake.

Food: I am not sure whether the price is exclusively for hotel guests but GBP 49 for three-course dinner for two people is absolutely a bargain. It is particularly so as there is no compromise on the food quality. The layout and taste of each course is just perfect and at the par of the top restaurants in London. Please do keep the price and the good work! We had lamb, chicken, duck and all of them are just delicious. The desert was perfect! They don't do cocktail but I had a very nice Pimm's. Thank you for taking the effort to make it. The breakfast was very nice as well.

Location: Pitlochry is a small town and this hotel is located in the higher land which has a great view of the town. We took a taxi from the train station which is recommended if you have suitcases as although the uphill road is not steep, it still takes some effort to climb. On daily commute, we walked everywhere in town which were very pleasant. You would feel it is a perfect escape from the noise and buzz but just minutes away to the town centre.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are sunny! As it is surrounded by trees, all the rooms seem to be quiet.

Having read the three recent reviews of this lovely hotel, it seems superfluous to submit another glowing one but here we are. We stayed on two separate nights and on both stays the rooms were spotless, beautifully furnished and comfortable. The dinners were very high standard and the breakfasts too. After the disappointment of another stay further north, it was bliss to return to such a welcoming and satisfying place and were only sad that we couldn't stay longer. We chose premier rooms both times and had great views from each. Both were on the first floor.
