Visited for a meal for 5. It books up early but the staff were very accommodating and efficient to find a slot for us. Had drinks in the beautifully decorated lounge area before being taken into the restaurant, which has had the furniture updated from the online pics and was really nice. Food was fantastic and it can be hard... More

From canapés in the lounge through 3 course meal in the restaurant and then tea/coffee and tablet back in the lounge, everything was 1st class and thoroughly enjoyed the whole meal. Staff were lovely and service terrific. Deserved 5 out of 5!

We had dinner both nights during our stay. The food exceeded our expectations and is closer to 3 AA rosettes than two, in our opinion. The menu was completely different each night and we were impressed by the originality of some of the dishes, e.g. the assiette of seafood on beetroot risotto was delicious. We had dined in a Michelin... More

The Hotel is of highest standard in terms of service personal attention to detail including pristine rooms with character. Al Carte menu food served was a credit to the resident Chef and Breakfast Menu choices were first class. A Hotel not to be overlooked in this area,

Food is excellent. Fresh ingredients cooked to perfection. The scallops melted in the mouth. Breakfast is also great cooked to order. No buffet type breakfasts here.I hate bacon and egg etc kept warm under lights found in many hotels these days.

We've been to Pitlochry a number of times and have never come across the Knockendarroch. On our recent visit I intended to book somewhere that offered fine dining for my Birthday, after a quick search online this place looked perfect. Our guesthouse reserved us a table as I totally forgot and to be honest was a little put off with... More

We stayed at Knockendarroch for 2 nights in late September. The 12-room property was wonderful. Warm hosts, beautiful rooms, and absolutely amazing food. Breakfast was from a menu and food beautifully presented. In the evening, we went to the parlor where we enjoyed drinks and canapés, made our dinner orders from the menu, and then were lead into the dining... More
