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.

... a difference a day makes!!! The weather today was windy, shame it was in our faces and not a tail wind, we would have been finished by lunchtime otherwise. Shep was right today, so hard to cycle into really strong headwinds. We needed to pedal to go downhill. The saving grace was that the clouds were high, so we still had views of the Cairngorms and the ski runs at the top of the day's climb. We reached the 300 mile mark today, that brought a cheer from ...
... finally made it and got our tickets and headed in to the castle. It is still privately owned and still currently lived in (the half that isn’t open to the public) which is interesting. And it was given to a man who once saved the kings life and from there it has been passed down the line. Scone Castle is important as it was the original home of the Scone Stone aka the Stone of Destiny! This is a big square stone upon ...
Here I find myself - sitting in the homely comfort of my Bridge of Allan garden enjoying the strange sensation of dusk and, when a black night sky eventually draws in, restraining my eyes from flicking up to check for hints of shimmering green.
My final month or so in Tromsų passed by in a whirl of sun, cycling and Sivertsens. The more time I spent in this unique wee cafe, the more deeply fond of the place I felt. To ...
... our own memories of life become sort of 'impressions of the moment' that I like this art form .
I've now cycled 736 miles with an amazing 320 approximately to do. To me I kind of regarded Scotland as ' that bit at the top' but it is a very long country.
Time to move on to Inverkeithing, over the Forth Bridge and to a satellite town of Edinburgh. The Bridge was impressive but in my ignorance I had not appreciated that my mind's image was in fact of the ...
... here. I took the bus and the bus fare was pretty cheap, so it all worked out. The only thing is that I booked too late and all the cheap accomodation was taken up, so I had to settle for a hotel. This hotel is very very nice though and I really like it. I have a private room with a TV and an excellent internet connection, so it's very nice! The bus ride took the whole day and by the end I had a headache from sitting in the sun all afternoon and I was ...
