It's the most expensive hotel I've ever stopped in, unfortunately not the best. I suspect the price I paid was due to the high demand and late booking. Pitlochry is a beautiful place and we had a lovely weekend. We had the very top room with beautiful views, parking was a bit awkward if you were the last back after...

Knockendarroch, Owner at Knockendarroch Hotel & Restaurant, responded to this review

Hello Keith. It's great to hear you enjoyed our food so much, however, I am concerned that you felt let down by the overall value of your stay. I was curious, so I looked up the price you paid when you stayed last August. Contrary to your belief that you paid an inflated rate, your DBB price of £205 was...

From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. Our lovely room on the second floor overlooking the hills was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bed was huge and I slept like a baby. We took a short walk into the town centre which was an easy stroll. The location is stunning and I'm ashamed to say I'd never been to...

Hello Ruthsintown. That's a great review. Thanks very much indeed. I'm getting hungry just reading about your potato dauphinois! Sorry to hear you missed out on the heather honey at breakfast. Double portions for your toast on your return visit. See you next time. Kind regards, Struan

My wife and I have just returned from a two night stay. This is a classy place. Every member of the staff was welcoming, friendly and attentive without being over-attentive.The menus at breakfast and dinner were excellent and the food was cooked to perfection.

This was our first stay in Knockendarroch but it certainly won't be our last. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in a spacious room with a dual aspect over Pitlochry and the hills. The staff and owner are all exceptionally friendly and attentive. We found the bedroom, lounge and dining room relaxing and comfortable, and dinner on both nights was...

An absolutely fantastic hotel we have been several times now and have never had any issues. The only problem we have is never wanting to go anywhere else! The food is of an outstanding quality and is far above what we have experienced at any other establishment. I cannot praise the chef and staff enough for both the quality of...

This was our first time in Pitlochry and the Knockendarroch and we loved it!! Easy access to the town which had all types of shops to visit. The restaurant at Knockendarroch was amazing!!

I've been coming to Pitlochry for years. This was my first stay at Knockendarroch. I really can't fault it. The food was superb and plentiful, the service was warm and friendly (even at 7am, when we stumbled up the hill to drop our bags, straight off the sleeper!), and our room was lovely. Canapes by the fire in the lounge...

Pitlochy is one of my favorite place for a week end in the highlands. Over the years I have been staying at many places from B&B to 5 stars hotels.

“The balcony rooms give you a fab view of the valley and over Pitlochry. Just be aware there are lots of stairs and the second set are quite steep, however the climb is worth it! Any of the rooms are worth staying in though - you won't be disappointed.”
