This is a superb example of a small Scottish country house hotel. The staff are every friendly, the dining is superb (the chef is definitely on his way to a Michelin) and the rooms very well appointed.

The tone for our entire stay here was established with the warmest of welcomes upon reception. Excellent accommodation and very comfortable common areas; roomy, on-site parking; outstanding dining; all underpinned by a sense that we were valued guests.

Hi Byron63. Thanks for your review and I'm delighted we were able to make your stay so enjoyable. Balancing friendliness and efficiency whist minimising intrusion is the 'black art' of service. It's a tricky one, but it's great to hear we got it right. See you next time. Thanks again, Struan.

Well done Knockendarroch . our stay this year was well worth it for your service, food and comfort. We stayed here for our 47th wedding anniversary and last year for our 46th. Our only disappointment this year was you were full up and we could not book a longer stay. We will book earlier next year!!.

A couple of days In Pitlochry to take in the Enchanted Forest and the theatre and where better to stay than Knockendarroch. A lovely room with balcony on the second floor was the ideal base and, as usual the dinner offering on both evenings was superb. Great flexibility to cater for late dinner after the forest visit and early dinner...
