Spent the Saturday night at the Royal Dunkeld. From booking to check out it was faultless. Lovely staff,food and rooms and very dog friendly. All areas were nice and clean and well maintained. In a great location for walking etc.

Staying in Dunkeld for just 1 night to celebrate anniversary. Had made no reservation and decided to check all the menus of the local 'eateries'. Decided that Royal Dunkeld hotel suited both our appetites and prices seemed reasonable. We were seated just before 7pm and noticed most tables were reserved. Within 1/2 hour almost every seat was taken. We opted...

Four of us stayed here recently whilst attending our son's wedding at Dunkeld House and we were all very impressed. The staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them. We had great breakfasts both mornings and a lovely evening meal on our first night. We will definitely return sometime in the future.

First visit to Dunkeld,on Easter Sunday first place we chose to eat.....big sign outside, children welcome, kids menu. We were told by the very miserable waitress that if we wanted our 2 year old to sit in a high chair we would have to sit in the bar rather than the restaurant where everyone was eating. The bar was dark...

I can assure you that we are child friendly. Dog friendly too! You happened to come in on Easter Sunday when every table was reserved. If it appeared that a table was available it was reserved and awaiting customers. The only table left was next to an exit and you required the high chair which would have blocked the door....

Staying 1 night whilst attending a wedding at nearby Dunkeld House. Couldn't check in till after 2pm - so unable to properly see hotel and room until after we returned from the wedding after 10pm. On approach along the incredible creaky loud floorboards, we appeared to awaken a dog in the room next door to us. After entering the room...

Thank you for a very entertaining review. We expected this and your review mirrored the rant made at a busy reception when you threatened us with a bad review. You went through a very inventive list of complaints, none of which we can take seriously, because if they were true, we would be empty. I am not going to reply...

Just had four nights here, I have stayed in previous years, and steadily it has got better and better, whilst there are areas that will need refurbishment, the important areas such as the rooms have already been made comfortable, with all the facilities you need, clean and tidy. The biggest area of improvement over the past few years, based on...

Thank you for making time to write a review especially when it is so complimentary. The staff work hard and we consider ourselves as a friendly family run hotel doing our best to please. I am glad you loved the bar but hope you will return to sample our wares in newly renovated but still traditional Royal Bar.
