We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in August.
Welcome at reception was all right, staff was friendly and helpful.
The hotel is done up in a nice, cosy, classic style, with a lot of wood, tapestries and comfy sofa's in bar and lounge.
My parents' room was amazing, more like a suite than a room. When you entered their room, they first had a small hallway with two doors leading off it, one into the (rather large) bathroom, the other into the bedroom. They had a sofa (albeit a little old and saggy) and comfortable chair in addition to a sleigh bed.
My room was a single, and it really was. There was just enough space to squeeze a single bed and a small desk in, and there was a rather small bathroom. I don't mind a smaller room (it's quite logical that a single would be smaller than a double), but this difference was quite big. But maybe it was more noticeable because of the size of my parents' room. My room was all right for a short stay. The bed and pillows were a little hard, and there were some cosmetic things that could do with a little updating, like the lock on my door, the handle to flush my toilet and the sofa in room 201.
Dinner had to be booked in advance, but we are quite impulsive when it comes to dinner. We don't know at check in if we'll eat in the hotel or find a nice pub or restaurant in town. When we went to inform at 6pm though, there was only availability at that time, the next sittings would all be fully booked because of big groups arriving. But we weren't hungry then, so we decided to head into town a little later. We found a nice little cafe, Café Biba, and ended up eating there all three nights.
Breakfast in the morning was all right, there was a buffet with cereals, fruit, yoghurts, croissants and juice. Cooked breakfast, coffee, tea and toast could be ordered from the menu.
The bar had a cosy feel to it, but there was hardly ever anyone sitting there, which made it less inviting. The barman was always running around, leaving the bar, coming back, leaving again, probably to do some other things that were needed, but it didn't feel very welcoming.
There is free wifi in all the rooms.
Pitlochry is a nice little town, and this hotel is right off the high street. Everything in town is in walking distance.
The hotel has a rather large (free) parking space next to it, and it also has a swimming pool and a spa indoors. I didn't use them.
