This is a lovely building of considerable age situated in a perfect setting in a delightful part of Perthshire. However there is a real need for a combination of a great deal of both maintenance and upgrading if it is to continue to be a destination of pleasant choice. Most of what we would say about the place is directed at Shearings the company NOT at the staff who as before were uniformly, polite helpful and friendly. We have no wish to fill up a review with specific little points where work is needed and renewals should be udertaken.
Suffice it to say that from the clean swimming pool to the carpeting of corridors there are lots of things needing replaced or refitted. Our room in general was properly equipped , clean and all furnishings were fine.
What a pity that no rigorous checking is done requently. Not one of the windows in room 124 could be opened--possibly when last repainted the frames were rendereed immobile and of course broken sash cords do not help! To be in a stuffy room in a June heatwave at nights was not too pleasant!
These windows have been fast and unopenable since our April visit so action is slow and checks far from thorough. This sadly must reflect on local management who could surely have arranged to get that put right by local workmen? Or is Shearings so hidebound that not even that low level of repair is permitted without reference to central property control staff? Maybe Shearings feel that the large coach parties who occupy the premises in middle of weeks are there as a one-off so they can leave capital investments aside but old buildings need tender loving care and it is not being provided!
