Lovely tranquil hotel in its own grounds. Staff very courteous and attentive. Our room that was in the annex, suited us as we had our dog with us and the room opened out through French windows onto the garden. We also dined here and the food was great. The hotel is also within waking distance of the Pitlochry golf club.
