Thought to be Scotland’s oldest hotel, Perth’s Salutation Hotel has played host to everybody from Bonnie Prince Charlie to David Bowie.
These days, you don’t need to be The Young Pretender or indeed a Thin White Duke to enjoy all that this historic hotel has to offer.
Today’s Big Deal offers a one or two night stay in this atmospheric Perth landmark.
Located in the centre of the city on South Street, The Sally is conveniently close to attractions such as Perth Museum and Art Gallery as well as being less than an hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The Salutation Hotel has been welcoming guests since 1699. While it wears its heritage with pride, it also features all the modern comforts that travellers expect.
Ensuite bathrooms and hot drinks trays are standard in all the rooms and there is WiFi in the public areas.
Three course dinner
Both options include tea or coffee with shortbread on arrival plus late check out to noon – no need to rush on departure day.
Option one is for two people to stay in a Classic double or twin room with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning and a three course carvery style Table d’hôte dinner with a bottle of house wine to share in the evening.
The £119 offer is for a two consecutive night stay with a full Scottish breakfast each morning and a three course carvery style Table d’hôte dinner with a bottle of house wine on the first night.
Both options are available seven days a week.
Both breakfast and dinner are taken in the splendid Adam Restaurant with its original barrel vaulted ceiling and magnificent, neo-classical Adam window.
Dinner is a three course table d’hote menu featuring lots of seasonal, Scottish ingredients. The menu changes with the seasons but typical dishes might feature Perthshire lamb, Shetland salmon and Highland venison.
Supplements will apply to some dishes.
See & do
There is plenty to keep you entertained. As well as great concerts and shows at Horsecross theatre and concert hall, Perth has a regular farmers’ market and there are more than 50 golf courses within easy driving distance.
Other attractions include stately homes such as Scone Palace. Alternatively, you could swing by Tullibardine Distillery or Perth Racecourse.
Of course, the surrounding Perthshire countryside is all there to be explored.
Over 450 people have given The Sally a solid TripAdvisor score of 4/5. This is what a recent guest had to say:
