Historical Traveler Reviews The Station Hotel Perth
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.

... stop at, and look in the graveyard of, either today or tomorrow, to see how old some of the headstones are.
The bus ride into Perth was pleasant, and I got off in the town centre. First I bought an umbrella, which is a good thing to have when doing a lot of walking. I will leave it with my sister when I return, as she doesn't seem to have one. My main pursuit in town was to find some printed cotton tea towels of ...
... palace and the place of the Moot hill were Scottish kings were once enthroned. The site of the palace is a huge area of beautiful English park, with Scottish cows, peacocks and wonderful grass fields. The palace itself is magnificent though pretty much modern (18-19 centuries' pieces with some items from as late as 17 ct.), there's a chapel for current aristocrats that has nothing to do with Robert Bruce who had to ...
I think people go two ways when it comes to packing: you either love it or hate it. The marmite theory. I hate it. As disorganised and forgetful as I am this never leads to a successfully packed bag with all the things I will need on holiday. Therefore when it comes to packing up half my life for a trip to Australia for a year, I'm not exactly keen. Packing is making this a reality (whereas before it ...
... picnic bag and chair in hand we were soon on the bus, which had offered free passage for the day and heading into Perth. It is a large city with superb amenities, theatre, ice rink, swimming pool, parks and museums/art gallery, well worth a visit. Alighting from the bus in Mill St we could hear the pipes and just around the corner the participants were marching along the route. We watched as Pipe bands, sea cadets, army cadets, beavers, cubs and brownies paraded through, all ...
The joy (and fascination) with the huge Scottish breakfast had not yet worn off on our second full morning, as we prepared to finally use our rental car and leave Edinburgh. With a right proper send-off by our inn keeper -- and GPS ready and willing -- we hit the road. We were soon out of Edinburgh on a gloriously sunny and warm morning, on our way to Linlithgow Palace, which is famous for being the castle where Mary Queen of Scots ...
