“Lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Overnight stay to meet relatives. Everything excellent from Annexe room to restaurant. Comfortable night sleep and nice breakfast.
Meal in restaurant was very tasty and everyone enjoyed it.
Room was a large suite in the Annexe just a minutes walk from the front of the house.

Thank you

This place attempts to be all things to all men and not surprisingly fails. You can not try to sell yourself as a romantic or relaxing getaway for couples - then host golf tournaments, +/- stag weekends and prom dances in the function suite not 40 feet from the allegedly superior room.
We were looking for a relaxed second night having been woken by the lack of blackout curtains and a lawnmower and staff chatter for the Golf course at 6.30am that morning. So, lets just say that by midnight as we vicariously ''enjoyed'' Runrig's loch lommond and the proclaimers' classic 500 miles we were feeling decidedly jaded by the ''pleasures'' of Murrayshall and feeling very much NOT the discerning travelling couple for our choice. Just when we thought it was all over back came the golf boys from Perth's finest hostellries full of the joys of life. Alcohol fuelling their door slamming, lock failing dyspraxias - hilarious as it was to them.
While this was the worst of it, the rest of the experience was also lacking- for us. The staff varied from very good to exceptionally bad and the restaurant was adequate without being anything to write home about.It felt like eating and staying in the clubhouse of my local golf club. Undoubtably, the best thing about the hotel is the food which was of a high standard in bar and restaurant - though telling which was which was perhaps not as easy as it should have been.
If you were a golfer this is a great place for a break. If you were a 6th year leaving school this is a great place for you send off. As a couple looking for a relaxing break go somewhere else. There are plenty of nicer places for the money. That said if you catch this place between golf tournaments and functions it would be able then to be what it purports to be for couples. So ask before you book.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior or better in the main body of the old house

Murrayshall is a beautiful old building in a lovely setting with two good golf courses. We chose to stay in one of the suites which was huge, tastefully decorated and reasonable value. Dinner was tasty with a good variety of options. I thought the wine list was good value for quality served. Breakfast was a typical Scottish hotel offering. Nothing wrong with it - but nothing special. Both dinner and breakfast were spoiled by poor service. There was one experienced server accompanied by two complete novices. They made many mistakes and food arrived at different times. Cooked food at breakfast arrived 20 minutes apart - not great when you're trying to get to the tee. We played the lesser of the 2 courses; the Lynedoch, which we found a good challenge and it was in very good condition. It is very hilly and may not be suitable for everyone. We booked a dinner, b&b and golf rate which felt fair value. The poor service did disappoint us; I think the hotel should have invested in better staff. Almost a 3 star review but the rest of the experience was very good and we will probably return.

We stayed in the master suite and the view from the window was magnificent all in all a top class 4 star hotel, we will most certainly visit again and hopefully book the same room.

Our daughter's wedding reception was at Murrayshall. The service was superb from the very start. Every detail had been meticulously set out in advance and everything went without a hitch. The staff could not do enough to help and the meal was excellent. Those who stayed overnight found the rooms very comfortable and breakfast was good. We could not fault the service and would recommend Murrayshall without reservation.

So let’s go through it:
The Place – a manor house set in beautiful surroundings, and next to its own golf course, and a very good location for touring the Perthshire countryside.
The rooms – While our room was not large it was well furnished, comfortable and had enough room for two large armchairs and overlooked the gardens.
Cleanliness – Immaculate.
Food – We were at a wedding so did not sample the normal restaurant fair but what we had was above average for that type of event. There were a few golf parties in the hotel that seemed to be sending back, well scraped, empty plates. Breakfast while good did not live up to expectations – You would expect the ‘Perthshire Platter’ to have a fairly large selection of local delights i.e. the ‘tattie scone’ but it turned out to be a fairly normal bacon & egg type breakfast.
Service. The place was busy but well-staffed with good and competent people.

Room Tip: We saw a few of the rooms and did not see a bad one
