“2nd visit”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We first stayed here in early July and only because we could not get into Killicrankie House, who recommended Knockendarroch as an alternative. What luck! Thought we'd try it again on our next visit( we are house hunting) and Liz fitted us in at short notice. Just as good as before and service ,room and food are exemplary. Understand the earlier comment about its position but the house was there long before the council estate which is perfectly tidy but the houses are drab,that's all. As you will probably spend most of your time looking at the mountains this is not an issue!

This is now the second time we have stayed at the Knockendarroch and it did not disappoint the 2nd time. The food is great, the rooms are very comfortable and the service is really first class. nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

This is one of the really best hidden hotels I have been to ! Only 13 rooms so make sure you book before you drop in. Liz the owner has done a great job with this old mansion. The rooms are delightful. And the service & friendliness is 5 star. It´s a pity there´s no lift but you just have to learn to take only what you need for a couple of nights. If not they´ll carry your luggage up to the rooms.
The view from the bedroom or lounge is typically Scottish hillside and stunning.
What ever you do, take dinner there. At 25 pounds a person for 3 courses from a chef that should really be in a Michelin restaurant is bargain not to be missed.

Room Tip: Second floor a the front with a view.

I have stayed in pitlochry many times, but never in the same place twice. This place, however will now be the place that I will always stay. It was clean, the staff were fantastic. They certainly understand all about hospitality!
Our room was large, comfortable and the bathroom was clean.
We had booked the dinner, bed and breakfast package. I cannot recommend this choice highly enough. The food was excellent, the service outstanding. The dining room was delightful, with great attention to detail, from crockery and cutlery to the right amount of tables, so you never felt packed in like sardines.
I I'm shall be back and would highly recommend it
Well done to ALL staff :)

Room Tip: Superior super king room

Stayed at this hotel for four nights. It was the perfect base for our holiday in Scotland. The hotel itself is very charming. The rooms are lovely, spacious with beautiful scenery. The staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: Stayed 1 night in a standard room and 3 nights in a superior balcony room. Both rooms were very nice...

We won a two night stay at a charity raffle and knew nothing about the hotel. The staff, particularly Maria on reception, were excellent- attentive, chatty and helpful. food delicious- best we have had in a hotel and far exceeded expectations of a relatively small place. Will be back as a paying guest!

My partner managed to book this by mistake, the house is stunning, full of period furniture and original features. The staff were super efficient whilst still being friendly and dinner was beautiful.
Town is a 5 minute walk down the hill, I'm not sure which way one of the reviewers came in but I didn't see a council estate and it was certainly quiet if it was there.

He'll be a keeper if all his mistakes are this good!!
