Reviewed 3 October 2017

We love this hotel with its tartan carpets and squeaky floors. If its a wee taste of Scotland go for the Royal George. We would recommend you ask for a river view room. Just stayed the one night as we were on a small tour. We had the largest full breakfast ever and it was delicious as well.

Room Tip: River view

I'm away from home 2 to 3 nights a week so I've got to know a lot of hotels and B&Bs in Scotland. A lot of 'traditional' Scottish hotels I've stayed in have been awful - tartan carpets, cracked bathroom suites, sagging beds and dusty window ledges - more like institutions than hotels.
But the Royal George isn't one of these. The room I stayed in had all the mod cons - powerful shower, marble tiled bathroom, flatscreen TV etc - but it also had charm and character.
The dining room which overlooks the garden and river is elegant and individual.
The staff were all warm and welcoming without being over familiar or intrusive.
It's a hotel that feels very much part of the local community - you can imagine bumping into a wedding guest or a family celebrating a Ruby Wedding anniversary as much as you might a tourist or a businessperson.
I really enjoyed my stay and will return next time I'm in Perth.
Finally, I accidentally lost my phone in the hotel and the staff not only went to a lot of trouble to find it but also posted it to me free of charge.
The Royal George is a county town hotel which manages to combine 21st century facilities and standards with old fashioned charm and hospitality. It's a hotel with great manners!

SO disappointed . On arrival we went to book a table for the restaraunt and was told no tables were available even at 6.30pm. On a a telephone call prior to bookingI was told all ok on arrival we can book into the restaurant. The room I was booked into had a variety of pigeons outside and so I was unable to open the window and it was warm that day. There was a wedding party and birthday party that day so appreciate that the hotel was busy but why were not told to book the restaurant anyway? No apology was given at any stage by the gent at the desk. I cancelled our return journey back from holiday stop over.

Room Tip: Front or side room. We were at the back.

Stayed here for a weekend for a wedding - seemed a popular spot for wedding parties as there were guests from at least one other wedding staying too. Good atmosphere and a place full of the kind of character that must get tourists in the mood for a trip north to the Highlands/Deeside. Staff were very helpful. Room was comfortable with an excellent shower and a reasonable view of the Tay. Perhaps its greatest attribute though is the unmissable breakfast - what a feed!
