Enjoyed a marvellous short stay at this hotel. The new young owners (of 2 years) have spend this period enhancing the hotel and moving it up the scale. Our room although not large, was more than adequate and was well equipped with TV, DVD,CD and a wonderful bathroom.
As per the previous comments the food was sensational, we ate on the Friday in the bistro and thought this was one of the best meals we ever had - then we wentto the restaurant on the Saturday and this was! We had intended to eat out on a few nights, but instead stayed in on all 4 nights.
Scott, the owner obviously enjoys his wine and this was reflected in a great list to choose from.
All the staff at the hotel were very friendly and enthusiastic about what they do, with all the help you required on hand to ensure you knew where to go in Perth and the surrounding area and what was good to see.
Great Stay at the Parklands
My husband and I recently (Sept 2005) spent four nights at the Parklands Hotel in Perth, Scotland. It was a wonderful experience. The hotel had private (free) parking, and was conveniently located. We had a nice, large room with private bath on the ground floor. The beds were good, and the room was quiet. The dining room was open for all meals, which we especially appreciated in the evening, after a long day of sightseeing. The food was excellent. Our room rate included breakfast, which was a full breakfast with lots of choices - also excellent. Our biggest compliment goes to the staff, especially Michael. His courtesy, friendliness and help made our stay there memorable. The other staff members were also very helpful and friendly. We highly recommend the Parklands!
My friend and I stayed in the Parklands Hotel for one night and I have to say we were absolutely delighted. The room, though a bit on the small side had a huge bathroom with an excellent shower. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. There are 2 small restaurants to choose from and the food is superb. I don't think I've had such a good "Full Scottish Breakfast", haggis included!
The hotel has a car park and is located very centrally - about a 5 minute stroll from Perth shopping centre and ther is ample room for car parking.
Amazing place, Amazing food
We have just spend a long weekend at this hotel and had a fabulous time. The Superior room we booked had a fantastic view over the park and the sunrises in the mornings were wonderful. There is a real contemporary feel to the rooms and they are very well equipped, we found the wireless internet very useful for reasearch and there was no charge.
Staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was to much trouble.
The food... sensational!!! We found out the owners have recently got together a group of young chef's who really know how to cook, we ate in both the restaurants here and were completely bowled over by everthing we ate, the presentation and tastes we wonderful. Locals were using the place as well which is a good sign.
After our great food we relaxed in a wonderful garden and did enjoy a few glasses of wine as recommended.
Paradise at Parklands Perth
Spent a fab weekend in Perth enjoying the comforts offered at the friendly Parklands Hotel.
It's a must if you enjoy relaxing with a bottle of wine & really delicious, fresh food (two restaurants to choose from).
And they have a sweet garden patio that overlooks an open park, perfect for absorbing that Scotish sunshine.
Good but not great
Just back from a one night stay at Parklands. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was very good. As the hotel was full our room was to the back of the hotel and this meant that there was a lot of noise from the road and nearby railway station. The windows are not double glazed. The room itself was clean but more adequate than great. The bathroom was spacious and clean but the shower did not seem to want to give hot water even although the bath did not have a similar problem. The double bed was comfortable but not big. However the net curtains needed thrown in the bin as they were covered in brown stains. All in all a great location and we would go back but next time we would make sure we had a room to the front of the hotel which over looks a quiet park. As the centre of Perth is very, very short of reasonable hotels then Parlands is probably the best. But then everything is relative.
We have just returned from a week at the Parklands hotel while on Business in Perth. The hotel is excellent and service was very good and the people were very friendly. The rooms are very comfortable and were very nicely decorated. The food is also very good. I would certainly stay at this hotel again.
Perfect Location in Perth
We stayed at the Parklands for a short weekend break, we have most impressed by the facilities and the food on offer. We ate in both restaurants and the food was fantastic.
Excellent selection for breakfast with everything freshly prepared.
Our room had been recently decorated to a high standard. For visiting central perth, this is a fantastic location, only 5 minutes walk from the centre, yet situated overlooking a beautiful park.
A great weekend break
Stayed at Parklands hotel for a weekend break. The food was superb in the restaurants and the rooms were very comfortable indeed. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location great.
A Sweet Hotel in Perth
Wonderful hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff! Great food. Next door to the car rental agency. One block from the bus station. An easy walk to downtown and shopping. Comfortable rooms. Lovely grounds. Pets don't seem to be a problem, (but I would check). It was fun to watch another guest bring his HUGE Newfoundland dog into the hotel without anyone batting an eye.

Yesterday morning I listened to the sermon our pastor gave about leavening and its lessons, before having lunch and going on my bus trip. I appreciated the sermon very much, and am hope to catch the next one online, which I also missed, when it is available.

This was the closest we got to an actual highland coo however as none were to be seen the whole time we were In Scotland. The drive home via Glasgow had us keep driving. It was not a place we wanted to stop in unfortunately. Felt dour. Dinner was ...
The main reason for me to come to this place was my childhood admiration of "The Fair Maid of Perth" by sir Walter Scott. To much disappointment, there are almost no signs of XIV medieval market burgh left. If there really were any ;) There's a kirk (that's how they call churches here) of St.John, the patron of the city, the allegedly original town house of Henry Hou and the maid. And also they made a golf course on the ...
... Roadie checked out the tumble dryer- which decided not to work so we took a bag full of wet washing with us! I had time to sit and listen to the radio for a while - quite novel! We headed off towards Pitlochry at noon travelling along the M90 before turning on to the very busy A9 and travelling the 22 miles to the campsite. It was an easy drive and we were soon set up at the other end. Toasties for lunch and we were ready to settle down and watch the Jubilee ...
