The group was there on a stag in June. We were put in the annex at the back (& separate from) the hotel. These were fairly standard but good for us.

We were very well looked after both for dinners & drinking in the bar. Would definitely go back again.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes you are right the annexe rooms are ideal for groups who are coming in late or going out early in the morning. Also excellent value to allow groups to spend more money on their sports (which includes eating and drinking!)

Stayed for two nights with my partner.

Got a warm welcome from Janet at reception and before we went to our room we went to the restaurant for food.

It was busy but the staff were really attentive and so friendly. The food was the best we have had anywhere in Dunkeld and we’ve eaten everywhere, I think! Really tasty pub grub and reasonable prices.

Our room was a bit dated but everything clean and tidy. The bathroom was nice and new looking compared to the rest of the room. We slept soundly although the sound proofing isn’t brilliant but I had earplugs and wasn’t too bothered.

Breakfast was good. Girls working in the mornings were very young but sweet and doing their absolute best. Second morning a few things were a bit chaotic with breakfast service but as I said, staff were doing their best and we still got good food. You could help yourself to continental stuff and anything hot was quickly provided to order.

This place is reasonably priced, does great food, and staff are very lovely. Some people may not love the rooms if they prefer more luxury but I really enjoyed my stay.

Would definitely return!

Just returned from an overnight in this lovely hotel. We had booked last minute and got the annexe out the back. A row of rooms in the car park itwas small but very clean and adiquite for our needs. Breakfast was lovely and they adapted to change my breakfast to vegetarian. Staff all very nice.
We will return to beautiful Dunked and this hotel.

Room Tip: It won't allow me to click above but all great

Many thanks for your lovely review. Sorry you had to be a last minute booking but delighted that you were understanding and accepted the budget accommodation at the rear. They are great for short stops or those who want to spend their hard earned savings on sports or cuisine. I am also delighted that the staff accommodated your breakfast to suit your diet. It was a pleasure having you stay with and hope that you will return. Perhaps giving us more notice and then you can get the choice of the 24 rooms in the hotel.

7 of the family travelled to Blair Atholl for the Equestrian Show held from 23rd to 26th August. Arriving at the Royal Dunkeld Hotel we checked in to two triple rooms and 1 twin,
All the rooms were comfy, clean and with plenty of space for all. The shower was hot and powerful and really appreciated after the long drive down.
Breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday morning arrived well cooked, tasty and with freshly cooked eggs to order. The service was quick, efficient and all the waiting staff were polite, friendly and very welcoming.
After spending a day at Blair Atholl on the Saturday, nine of us arrived for dinner at 7.30pm. Again the waiting staff were welcoming, efficient and made everyone feel relaxed. Drinks quickly followed and our order was taken. Starters arrived very quickly and all 9 of us tucked in - the Scotch egg was very tasty indeed. Mains arrived in good order and everything was tasty, well presented and piping hot.
Drinks and 9 starters, 9 mains and then 8 desserts arrived, were enjoyed and represented Scottish food at its best.
Would we go back - absolutely. The hotel was enjoyed by all. The staff couldn't do enough for us. The bar was warm, noisy and full of life. All my children and their partners had a great time, very good food and consumed a pretty good range and quantity of drinks. Set on the main street in Dunkeld it is easy to find and has parking very close to it.
Weekend cost was very reasonable - for the accomodation, food provided and the service and friendly staff I would have happily paid more. Not something a Scotsman normally says given our reputation for being tight-fisted!
If you are in the area or thinking of visiting Dunkeld, give it a try. You won't be disappointed - I certainly wasn't.

Room Tip: Our rooms were 110, 106 and 107. Two are triples and ideal for families.

We have just spent the weekend here for a family wedding held nearby and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were a party of 4 different generations, had 8 rooms between us and loved the hotel. Staff were first class, couldn't do more to help and were all very helpful, attentive and efficient. A special thank you must go to Janet & Catriona for all their help. Our rooms were all very clean and comfortable and the food and service we had in the dining room was excellent. We also enjoyed being able to use the first floor resident's lounge, being a large group it meant we had a base to meet and gather together. If back in the area we would certainly come back here - a first class hotel.
