‘Booked as a 5pm deal and did not disappoint. Welcomed at reception by a friendly member of this small family hotel… room was good size, clean and comfortable for what we paid. Excellent choice at dinner which we enjoyed very much. Great service by a lovely girl. Next morning, substantial breakfast served by another lovely waitress. Will certainly recommend and return. So handy for town centre, train and bus station.’
‘Well located, a warm welcome and lovely room… room was spacious, clean and the twin beds were extremely comfortable. We ate in the bar and our food, and the service was excellent. The breakfast menu was very good and my traditional Scottish breakfast was very tasty. High quality bacon and sausage makes me very happy. I will be staying here when I visit Perth again and I would happily recommend it.’
