Moulin Hotel
Ranked #14 of 18 Hotels in Pitlochry
Reviewed 30 July 2012

My wife and I stayed here for one night on 28 Jul 12. It is located in a nice setting and is asthetically pleasing from the outside, unfortunately the inside of the hotel is less pleasing. Our room was small, dark and in need of a refresh. The TV was miniscule and the bathroom was old and run-down. I regret to say that there is a distinct impression of a hotel which is desperate to cost-cut and the quality of the bar meals, breakfast and general facilities reflected this ethos. Why charge 30p for a photocopied page of the hotel's history? it smacks of penny-pinching and is counter-productive. Advice on the breakfast menu on how to order a 'full Scottish breakfast' without wasting food is also patronising and totally unnecessary given that 1/2 a slice of black pudding, one rasher of bacon and one sausage hardly equates to calorific overload! Whilst the experience wasn't horrific, it was not a place we would return to unless some dramatic improvements were made and the thrifty attitude is readjusted.

Room Tip: Afraid I can't help with that.

I'm afraid this reviewer does not read things properly.

The historical guides to Moulin village are made up by the Moulin Kirk heritage trust, who simply ask for a donation - most give a pound or two.
Breakfast menu merely advises that you can order anything, rather than just saying 'FULL' think about it and order what you really want to eat. An order for a 'Full' breakfast but no this, that & the other is not good, tell us what you want, not what you don't want.
This review about our meaness says more about the reviewer than our Hotel.

We stayed here in July as a stopover while travelling further north. Staff at the hotel were very welcoming. Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. We spent the evening in the hotel, had a couple of drinks at the tables laid out just outside the entrance which was really nice on such a lovely evening. We then had a meal in the bar which was tasty basic pub grub, we didn't need anything too fancy so we were quite happy with that. Breakfast in the morning was excellent, set us up for the journey north. I'd stay here again if I'm back in the area and prefer it to the slightly busier Pitlochry which is just a mile down the hill.

This centuries old hotel in the lovely little village of Moulin, just outside Pitlochry is a real gem. Bar meals are superb (and I'm sure the restaurant meals are too) and the breakfast sets you up for the whole day. Rooms are nicely furnished and the whole place oozes traditional charm. Only 15 or so rooms, so book early if you want to sample this wonderful quiet hotel just a mile or so from the tourist hub of Pitlochry.

We couldn't pass up the opportunity to stay in an inn that boasts of being over three hundred years old on our trip to Scotland, and the Moulin Hotel was just what we were looking for! We had a large superior room which was very comfortable in spite of being located in the oldest part of the inn. The surrounding area is so peaceful and quiet except for the bird song and running water of the lovely burn that burbles past the dining room windows. We arrived by train and got a taxi to take us to the hotel, but easily walked into Pitlochry, a mile away, from then on. Ate in both the charming, dog-friendly, pub and in the lovely dining room with lots of large windows overlooking the burn and bordering wood. All meals were delicious and the service throughout the hotel was excellent! The reason I've given it 4 stars is that it may not be for everyone! There's no wifi service, and some floors creak! But if you want a unique and lovely place to stay that is loaded with character and warmth, stay here!!

Room Tip: Room 17 is directly over the pub and can be a bit noisy at night. We didn't mind it. The pub clo...

Stayed here for one night en route to Aviemore - room spacious and very clean. Had a great night's sleep in the exceptionally comfortable bed. Never ate in, but breakfast was excellent. After spending 1 night in the 4 star Highland hotel in Aviemore, I wish that we had stayed longer at the Moulin Hotel! Oh well, at least I know for next time.

Spent one night in the larger rooms spacious and well decorated, didn't eat in the hotel at night so unable to comment on quality of food. Breakfast was help yourselft to cereal and fruit juice then a choice of cooked or continental breakfast plus tea or coffee.
Will visit again staff attentive not overbearing.

We stayed in the self Annexe adjacent to the Hotel: Excellent accommodation - clean, spacious, home from home. Great for a group of up to seven people - they can also provide a travel cot. Breakfasted at the hotel and had evening meal at the Inn. Will definately stay here again soon.
