We stayed in a Garden View room across from actual hotel. Room was very spacious, well appointed and clean. The only knock was that Wifi was not working although it worked well the following morning in the main building. Maybe this was due to the distance from main building? Breakfast was fantastic and plentiful but only one OJ with any...

This was my second stay, the first after a stay at the majestic Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island on the way back where we overnighted and at at the then bistro. We always swore to go back so for the 30th wedding anniversary we did. Three nights, one with the full 8 course menu and two at the Parker...

Awesome kitchen and food (the best egg benedict i ever tried!) with nice terrace. Service was just a bit long. However the hotel was very disappointing for the expensive price: big room but lack of charm, quite average.

A perfect Summers day outing to have lunch at this gem of a place. Being a public holiday we had booked but on arrival there were a couple of spare tables. We were warmly greeted on arrival & shown to our table. Followed by menus & fresh water. The staff looked professional in there custom designed apparel & very pleasant....

Staying in one of the cottages over the road from the main hotel. It has a main living area with Queen size bed and single in the L of the room. There is a sofa and coffee table etc. The bathroom is enormous (looks like one of the old bedrooms had been converted) with a great shower. I really like...

We had wanted to stay at the Royal Mail in Dunkeld and sample the food for sometime given its reputation. We were not disappointed.The accommodation was comfortable and the rooms well equipped and the 8 course tasting menu with matching wines a triumph! Breakfast, the following morning, was an unexpected bonus with great local produce and wonderful coffee. Service was...

Excellent service from non-posh but very friendly waiters.. Morning breakfast provided so many bespoke choices in fine room. Service was all one could want, professional without excess..Most excellent one-night stay. I would head...

I stay at the Royal Mail at least once every year. And I've noticed standards are slipping. No more chocolates in rooms. No more offers of a paper for the room. But, very disappointingly, a dinning room that prides itself on its service and food provided such a poor breakfast service recently I could hardly believe it. Don't tell us...

Had an awesome meal here. 3 courses. Great service and great wines. Definitely recommend. Only feedback - the kids fish didn't look or taste great. Restaurant should stick to grilled flake for kids! I would definitely recommend for a nice night out.

My wife and I went with our young children as we've been wanting to go for a long time. The staff were so accommodating and even organized a Nannie to keep our children while my wife and I enjoyed an amazing 8 course tasting menu matched to perfection with old and young French wines by the Sommelier team. It was...
