I bought a gift voucher for DB&B at this hotel for very good friends. They are seasoned travellers and said this was one of the best hotels they had ever stayed in. The staff were so kind to them and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were wonderful and just like photos on website, if not better! This is...

Very nice room and comfy lounge with all day service. Meals particularly good, the chef here is a star. Staff generally very attentive and friendly. Provide early dinner and transport if going to the Theatre. Best stay so far in Pitlochary .We will return soon.

We thoroughly enjoy our visits to Knockendarroch Hotel. It has a really relaxing feel and the food is excellent. The staff (mainly Spanish I think) are really helpful and friendly. Great break, especially if you combine your visit with a night at Pitlochry Theatre. The free coach picks you up and returns you to the hotel, so you can still...

It has been a few years since we stayed at this hotel. The last time was disappointing as the standard of food served well below that experienced on earlier stays. This time everything was outstanding and the staff go 'the extra mile' for their guests. Well done.

We visited Knockendarroch for a special birthday dinner. On arrival we were shown into the elegant sitting room with roaring fire where we ordered drinks, had canapés and perused the menus. Requesting a "virgin mary" created consternation for the Spanish member of staff bit otherwise the service was very good and ambience excellent. The cooking was clever, well executed and...

Hello SpitfireQueen. Thanks for the review of the birthday dinner you had with us in September. I'm very pleased you enjoyed yourselves and the food but I'm sorry you found the restaurant to be a little tight. I'm also sorry to hear you did not like our music - I guess one person's 'carefully considered playlist' is another's 'muzak'. Hopefully...

I booked into this hotel at short notice.
