5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012

This year we stayed in the hotel the third time. It´s always a warm welcome and great time to stay in the hotel. Scottish hospitality at it´s best. And the porridge with Whisky - a great start in the day!!

We only stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in a self-catering apartment but wished we had stayed longer. The apartment was just perfect. The owners couldn't have been nicer, very accommodating, really nice people. Would reccomend a stay here anytime!

The Claymore deserves the plaudits on this website - we could not have hoped for a more welcoming, friendly, relaxed place for a weekend stay. The staff were hospitable and genuinely interested in making their guests' stay as pleasant as possible, without ever being intrusive. From checking in (to find that my request for a quiet room had been noted and we'd been given the quietest room in an already very peaceful hotel) ,to the host making coffee for my workaholic husband first thing in the morning, to the quite outstanding breakfasts, this was a great experience from start to finish. I can't thank the hotel for looking after us so very well. Very happy to recommend and will be most happy to go back.

Room Tip: Room 7 is blissfully quiet.

We stayed here for a quiet getaway and were very happy with our choice. A beautiful room overlooking well kept gardens in a stunning hotel. The breakfast was extremely generous and the manager had excellent people skills, nothing was too much trouble for him.

We highly recommend the Claymore Hotel

We usually stay in 4/5* hotels like Sheratons and Hiltons, so the Claymore was a bit of a departure for us - and we certainly were not disappointed!

The location of the Claymore is ideal, just a few minutes walk to all of the amenities that Pitlochry has to offer, with easy access to the main roads if you want to venture away from the town.

We arrived mid morning, and received a very warm welcome from Graham. Because we were so early, our room wasn't ready which wasn't an issue and there was no problem with leaving our bags. Graham took some time to recommend a few restuarants and gave us a brief overview of the town.

When we returned a few hours later we were shown to our room (standard double) and our bags were ready and waiting for us. The room was spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Although we were at the back of the hotel, we still had a pleasant view and a couple of chairs to relax in. We were delighted with the room and really couldn't have asked for more!

Breakfast was a pleasant affair served in the conservatory with lovely views. With good service, great quality food and ample choice - this is a great start to the day. When breakfast isn't being served the conservatory is available if you want to enjoy a drink or bring back your own food, plates and cutlery are also available.

The gardens at the front of the hotel are lovely, with beautiful views and some chairs and tables - we were lucky to have some nice weather so took our own drinks outside to relax for a while.

We briefly met Diane when we checked-out and like the welcome from Graham, Diane was extremely friendly.

All in all, the Claymore offers superb value for money - friendly owners, clean, spacious and well appointed rooms with a great breakfast. A real find, and with it only being an hour and a half away from us, we will certainly be back for a de-stress!!

Thanks Graham and Diane!!!

We spent a great week in the apartments behind the hotel. They were clean and spacious, ideal for the two of us. There was no noise from the other apartments or the hotel. All aplliances were clean and in good working order. It was a great basis to explore the area and would serioulsy be thinking of a return visit. Good rates (and good weather) made this a good weeks holiday.
