These are excerpts from recent, longer reviews:
‘Fantastic stay. Just back from a short break to Dunkeld House Hotel. This was our fourth stay and our room was the best one yet. The hotel is undergoing refurbishment but we knew this before we went. The refurbishment did not affect our stay in any way, we even had the privilege of eating in the conservatory on its first day of opening. The food was excellent and staff very friendly and polite…’
‘Wonderful hotel. Beautiful rooms! Excellent service! The staff is very friendly and extremely accommodating… There is a spa, fishing, bicycling, and a nature trail that runs along the River Tay… I enjoyed the steam room, Jacuzzi, sauna and pool and had a detox body wrap at the spa. I highly recommend this hotel!
‘Made welcome from the moment we arrived. Room immaculate, dinner delicious and the grounds stunning. So friendly and excellent value for money. Will definitely return in the near future. From the moment you turn in the drive you know that Dunkeld House is going to be something special. From the deer in the field, or the red squirrels in the trees. Absolutely stunning location and a nice stroll into Dunkeld by the riverside.’
