The owner was really friendly! She even upgraded us to the Estate Suite for our honeymoon which was great! Loved the atmosphere, cozy. The room was spacious and had a large bathroom with a walk-in shower. Friendly and welcoming vibes. Definitely looking forward to visiting again!

Great stay
Overall a lovely stay and beautiful setting. The rooms were very clean and amenities great. Good selection of continental and cooked breakfast. The evening meal was really delicious. Some lack of training of staff noted though, could be more courteous.

House of Bruar Trip
Perfect get away for my wife and me where we fancied a trip into the highlands, and a look around House of Bruar and Pitlochry. Found this hotel with its own amazing restaurant in such a great setting. House of Bruar is only about a mile away if that.

Worst Experience !! Not ideal for a family!!
Not ideal for a family!! We got confirmation from Hotel that the Ensuite room is suitable for a couple with infants. However, at the time of arriving in the evening, hotel staff declined to give keys for the room booked for and asked for an additional cost (almost the same amount that we paid already). They were forced to take that room which was not listed at any other website except their own. Hotel taking advantage of customer situations, timing and remote location. We ended up with an infant almost three hours in the car at the parking area without accessing basic utilities of drinking water, toilet, etc. Hotel can show the room which they want to sell but refused to show the room which we have booked for due to safety concerns. Be careful before visiting this place. It's not ideal for family at all and not trustworthy even.

Good stay, with slight disappointment
The property was of a high standard. We had been booked in for dinner but unfortunately we were informed the chef was unwell just prior to check in. This meant we had to find our own last minute dinner solution locally. This was disappointing and it would have been appreciated if more had been done to alleviate this inconvenience. This aside the stay was enjoyable.
