“birthday weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

We had a birthday weekend at the East Haugh Hotel. It was a great experience. The room was comfortable with everything we needed. ( the lavender shortbread was brilliant ) , and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Anything we asked for was provided promptly with a big smile.

The food was excellent, especially the devilled whitebait and the duck. Never had better ! It was our second visit and we will definitely go again. A lovely hotel in a beautiful part of the world.

I stayed here with my brother a couple of weeks ago for one night. It's situated about 5 minutes drive from Pitlochry by car and there is not much in the surrounding area (except for fishing of course) but you don't need anything else when you have the bar and the restaurant. The food we had on the Saturday night was very good. From the starter all the way to dessert. The staff were very attentive and helpful. A great place for a weekend getaway.

We stopped here on our way from Inverness to Loch Lomond. We checked in early and our room was ready, the young lady on the reception was extremely nice. We ate in the evening in the bar area, it is very comfortable and the food is delicious. Karen is very informative and friendly. The food was great, I had the salmon, served with smooth mash and prawns with a cream sauce, Delicious! The room was nice, comfortable and the young lady booking us in gave us fresh milk in a flask for our room, no horrible little cartons of 'artificial milk'. It was comfortable, however the room would be extremely hot in later weeks, hopefully the quilt tog would be less for the summer. All in all a very nice stay, Would definitely go recommend.

We stayed Friday 20 June, our room was in the loft and was so pretty although my boyfriend at 6ft struggled in the bathroom! We were greeted by Anna on reception who checked us in and took us to our room, she was very attentive and offered to bring us fresh milk to our room for coffee. The attention to detail was lovely all around, from the fresh flowers in water on all of the tables to the books in the lounge, we had dinner that evening and breakfast on Saturday, the food was beautifully fresh and well cooked and the staff were excellent all round. I think we would have liked there to be a more relaxed lounge and bar area for a drink before and after dinner, the lounge , although comfortable and beautifully decorated felt slightly like a waiting room. Overall highly recommended, I hope we can go back again soon

Room Tip: We had the dunkeld suite, which although beautiful meant my guy had to crouch to have a shower.

Thank you very much for your review regarding your stay with us.
As East Haugh is an old family house dating back hundreds of years, the McGowan family have tried to keep that family feel about the place, whilst still utilizing certain spaces for the commercial side that exists within East Haugh, therefore some spaces may be a little compact, but we feel that this adds to the overall ambiance that we hope our guests feel when they stay with us. We will of course accommodate our guests to fit there needs when they check in with us.
I will pass on your comments to both our front of house staff and kitchen brigade, who are always happy to hear comments from our guests.

We spent two nice in that nice hotel having the upper room with a whirlpool type bath. The food, breakfast as well as dinner was outstanding, the house is conveniently located near to some interesting places and to the town of Pitlochry which is only 10 mins away. I would come back any time.

Very good as usual, staff friendly and helpful. A good stay was had by both of us. Room was just as we wanted it, and we were welcomed back like old friends by the owners. Dinner was very good as was breakfast.

We stayed at East Haugh house hotel en route to friends in the north. Traveling with a dog, we were put in Katy Dee - right next door to the main hotel. The room was quite small but clean, pretty, very comfortable with lots of lovely little touches including big fluffy bathrobes. The bathroom was a good size, again with big bath towels that go all the way around!
In the restaurant you could be forgiven for thinking the main dinner menu looks a little uninspiring and predictable however, that in itself offers a certain level of comfort (you're not having to wade through lists of ingredients you've never heard of ) and of course it does not take into consideration the standard of cooking which was fantastic. Plus the daily specials menu make best use of spanking fresh ingredients. In the hands of the kitchen brigade who clearly know what they're doing we had a truly delicious and memorable meal.
The service was friendly, a little frenzied, but always with a smile from a restaurant team who work very hard to make sure that each and every guest is pampered!
My only watchpoint would be for those guests who are travelling with dogs: the hotel is dog friendly (our little Cairn terrier was completely spoilt) but be sure you are aware of the hotel's policy. For all the right reasons they prefer dogs to stay in the porch area outside your bedroom– for our 10-year-old arthritic four-legged friend this was no problem, but we might have struggled had we had a younger, less well trained, more boisterous model!
That said, we will definitely be back – and we would encourage anybody travelling north looking for a stop off to try East Haugh!
