Dont Go There!!!!!
When first arriving at this hotel it looks like any freshly decorated 3* Hotel in scotland, Unfortunataly when we left the foyer in search of our Non Smoking room descending along the dark corridors and ripped carpets. We eventally got the room opened and the the smell of smoke hit us immediataly. The room was old and worn looking and this was a refurbished one!!!! Never ever go, we left immediatally.
I booked my single room at this hotel quite late (couple of weeks before staying) and so I had to pay £70 for it. I arrived at around midnight and check-in was fairly quick and straight forward. My room was like a converted cupboard but had everything I would need. My TV didn't work at all however and I had to run around to get wet in the shower. The noise from water in the pipes from other rooms was quite loud at times.
In general I think this hotel was expensive for what I got and I wouldn't stay here again if I had the option of staying somewhere else.
I had stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago and had a great stay - due mainly to the fantastic friendly staff and found myself in Perth yet again. What a change to the hotel - not only are the staff still fantastic, but they've now started to refurbish the hotel too and it's beautiful. Still in keeping with the character of the hotel but it's all been done so classicaly - lovely to see such care being taken and it's still great value for money - I'll be back!!!
Having booked a four night stay at the Quality Hotel, I was slightly concerned to read the other reviews. However, we were more than satisifed with all aspects of the hotel. Our room was small but perfectly well appointed, it was clean when we arrived and cleaned to a high standard every day of our stay. There was a good choice of food at breakfast and staff were helpful and friendly. I thought this hotel was excellent value and above average for a three star hotel.
My opening line says it all. This hotel needs closing down. Service was pathetic and the rooms are filthy. Staff are untrained and food was awful. We also had the privilege (?) of paying £94.00 for this!! Stay away, don't even entertain the idea of staying here.
Where was the Quality?
This was quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was putrid and looked as if it hadn't been decorated or cleaned since the war - and by that I mean the BOER WAR!!!!
After three rooms and thankfully not a funeral we were moved to a refurbished room which was not a patch on even a very standard Premier Lodge or Travel Inn room. It was small, cramped and anything but cosy.
Now onto the breakfast it was like something out of Fawlty Towers and the beans looked as if they had been reheated fifty times!
Do yourself a big favour and if you want to go to Perth book into anywhere but here!
My 30th was approaching and my sister and my husband decided to take me away as a surpise. There were 10 of us booked into this hotel for the Murder Mystery Weekend. The rooms were a disgrace, the bar staff very unhelpful and "dour", ran out of most spirit drinks, charged us for movies in our rooms which we did not watch (since we were at the bar at the time), for a 30th it was a surprise alas not a nice one. My husband was devastated, he though it was going to be plush hotel with great entertainment, not so.If your stopping for a wee and a quick sandwich, OK, don't book in for anything longer.
Quality Hotel Perth
On reading the previous review, I was slightly concerned about my stay.
However, I would like to mention that this was a wonderful experience for me. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, the food delicious and I had a fantastic large family room. Also noticed that they were in the middle of refurbishing some of their bedrooms, which looked great - can't wait to stay again!
A thoroughly enjoyable experience
Although an old building this hotel has character and the staff were more than helpful. Service very friendly, also very good with children which can make a difference for a family as only too often hotels clearly cannot be bothered with children. Would recommend to anyone.
Quality Staion Hotel
This hotel is in dire need of a refit both of the hotel and of staff. Some roomes looked fine others like mine were just a converted cupboard. Breakfast wasnt up to standard. There was mud on the stair carpet for the whole of my 3 night stay!!. The bar shuts early. This is definatly not a good advert for hotels in Scotland. Owned by a company called Quality Hotels who on the state of this hotel should probably change their name.

So much rain and so little playing today.
Today was the Perth and Kinross Highland Games. Held in the lovely city of Perth on the river Tay, a bit north east of where we have been till now.
It is another of those lovely towns that did well in the Victorian age and this shows in its architecture. But it also has a medieval history as it is where you used to find the Scone of Destiny at Scone Abey. It used also to be known as the capital of Scotland. (Scone is ...
... 1 we make our way via minor roads, lanes and dedicated cycle ways.
Just a few miles from Kinross, the clouds that had been threatening finally bring the rain. Dave's new cycle gloves from Cotswolds in Edinburgh live up to the recommendation. As we arrive in Kinross all we can see are industrial sites, car yards and repairs. Dave keeps an eye on the church spire and the GPS, hoping that something will come along ...
... aisle - it just makes it easier to get in / out and to be honest there isn't much to see except lots of sea and Greenland! Our flight is on time and due to arrive in Newark about 12 noon, which will be a bonus as we want to get the afternoon in NYC to do a bit more sightseeing before dinner on 9th Avenue. And a plus ..... the weather is forecast for sunshine and 23c today! Just time to fit in our last bacon roll & a cup of tea before the flight is ...
... just figure out what a "neep" was!
And, finally, "how does one exit a train with no door handle"? One of the train lines here in Scotland has exit doors with handles only on the outside. When you reach a station and want to exit, you must lower the window in the door, reach out to the outside handle, wrassle it open, THEN deal with whatever you have and get out!!! Who thought of THAT nifty system:)
... the edge of the road where there was a sort-of gutter. From there, there wasn't much moving. The car was pretty stuck on the edge of the road, with not enough grip to get out. Even walking up the road to get some grit (salt/dirt combo) to put on the road in front didn't help. And as all this was happening, there was more and more cars arriving in the same section of road and getting stuck in similar ways.
Eventually, we were able to reverse the car with the hill ...
