“Grand old estate”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

The hotel is located in a small village that is picturesque and the hotel lived up to its stunning outside image. The staff was welcoming and room quiet and comfortable. The food was very good and we would stay here again.

It was in desperation that we booked two nights at Fortingall Hotel it was the only hotel that had rooms to offer so you can understand that we were nervous asking ourselves why, is it because the hotel is not very good - but we were wrong it was delightful.
We arrived to a warm welcome from Sandie the receptionist and Gavin the Manager who offered help with our luggage, and carefully explained the system used for breakfast and evening meal which can be taken in the restaurant or in the wonderful cosy bar which is attached. All very professional and top class service.
Our bedroom was delightful and the ensuite was large and sparkling clean even a wee dram of whisky in a little decanter as a welcome drink.
We dinned in the restaurant on our first night and the food and service was excellent. The second night we dinned in the delightful bar and once again enjoyed a very tasty meal.
Very impressed and would return.

On arriving we were welcomed by very friendly, helpful staff. We were shown to our room which was one of their Superior Double Rooms . The room was very spacious with a very large on suite bathroom, they were both very clean and comfortable. The room did have a flat screen TV but the channels were limited, but enough for us. There was a decanter with some malt whiskey in it, enough for two tots each, nice touch. We had our evening meal in their cosy little bar where again the staff were very friendly, and the meals that we had were very nice and reasonably priced. The main restaurant meals also looked to be of a high standard, and good quantities served. Breakfast was of a high standard with a large choice to pick from on the menu. The hotel is located in a small village with a cluster of small thatched cottages and a church. In the church grounds there is a Yew tree reputed to be the oldest in Europe. When driving round the area to get to various castles and local historical sites we saw wild deer where ever we went.
The hotel was very quiet and peaceful we both had a good nights sleep. We had great views out the front of the hotel.
If the opportunity arises we would love to return.

I had stayed at the Fortingall Hotel in the past, some 2-3 years ago, and amazingly the excellent concierge remembered me. That nice touch simply adds to the very positive view of the staff or the Fortingall Hotel. We had travelled from Islay to Fortingall and August in Scotland you will pay handsomely for a good hotel. But if you are going to pay up, at least get your monies worth. Fortingall is set in a lovely location, something quite magical. The ancient Yew Tree adjacent to the hotel in a charming churchyard, lovely rural views, the pub which is part of yet separate from the hotel, lovely food, and very friendly service. Our room (Glen Lyon) had views over the countryside and thatched cottages next door. A short walk through the village, and a lovely sunset. Who said the weather in Scotland is terrible? Maybe I should not have written such a positive review of Fortingall because I will end up paying more on the next stay if this place gets discovered

My parents and I recently stayed in a wee cottage in Fortingall and were delighted to find this super hotel just along the road. We were greeted by friendly staff and a cosy fire. Our first night in Fortingall we ate in the restaurant and were very impressed with the beautiful food, very reasonably priced for its quantity and quality. The staff were excellent, polite and cheerful.
We enjoyed lunch in the lounge and spent every evening having a drink in the library or lounge beside the fire. Just perfect. We ate in the restaurant again on our final evening and thoroughly enjoyed the live music in the bar after our meal. Locals and guests alike made it a super atmosphere, amazing how many folk you can squeeze in The Ewe!
A special mention to Gavin and Emese who made our trip one to remember. Thank you so much, we'll definitely be back! :)

Following a delightful tour of the area, we arrived in Fortingall to admire the Yew. We then decided to lunch at Fortingall Hotel. Ordering from the light lunch menu, we chose locally sourced salmon and beef, in anticipation of quality produce. Unfortunately we were sadly disappointed. The standard did not meet our expectations or live up to your reputation as portrayed on line. The salmon was tasteless and unpalatable, and appeared to be end cuts, therefore most was left. The steak, being rather chewy and stringy, was not enjoyable.

The service we received could not be faulted, your reception and waiting staff were friendly and accommodating.

This hotel and where it is situated makes it a gem of the highlands. Our room looked toward Drummond Hill and was nicely furnished, spacious, comfortable and spotless, as was the ensuite. After exploring the village, a very pleasant afternoon was spent on a comfortable sofa, sometimes reading but mostly looking out the window at the changing moods of the highland scenery. The common rooms (library was my favourite) were tastefully decorated and welcoming. Staff were friendly and attentive to guests. Dinner was delicious and complimented by a small but nice selection of wines. However, beware the Fortingall Breakfast, it is huge! The only downside for us was we couldn't stay longer. Next time.........
