... every single crazy request for me (like, taking our parcels to be mailed for us), to Kevin and Jade, two of our regular servers, to the last gent whose name I didn't catch but who stayed overtime to help us load the taxi, then refused a tip. And Lucy..... We truly were blessed by her friendship, and that of her boy, Phoenix. Love you and your family, ...
... trails for fear of damaging puffin burrows - apparently it takes them a whole season to dig a new burrow so putting a foot through one can entirely lose a breeding season for one pair. We were then free to walk wherever we wanted on the island, which is not large, but large enough for us to walk most of the two and a half hours we were there, and much of it without seeing any of the other visitors. At one point we met the ranger, David, again, and had a very ...
... way again enjoying a nice trip alongside the loch to Inverness. Both sides of the road are quite heavily wooded so one only gets intermittent views of the loch but at one point we had a nice view of the ruins of Urquhart Castle on the other side which Kathryn photographed. While we were stopped there a lone fisherman, fully kitted-out, passed by in a small boat trailing 3 or four lines from rods and we exchanged greetings.
It was again ...
... your week in Carrbridge. Ron, thank-you for the information in regard to the shale heaps. To Helen and Roy, hope you have a great weekend with Paul and Jenny. To Eva, the blogs will keep coming! To Sue and Chris, hope you have a fantastic time in Corsica, enjoy the sun! To Dick and Moi, welcome to the world of laptops! We both hope Moi that your back improves soon! To the prodigal son and his wife, hope you are enjoying Paris and Abbeville. To Ian, hope the bruises are not too sore. ...
... the kings parked their butts on when they were crowned. And it's not even here anymore- it's in Edinburgh Castle. So, count Scone Palace as a missable attraction. I will add, however, that the addition of scones and cream puffs would greatly increase my interest in this castle.
We spent the evening, as per all our Scottish evenings, in a pub with beer. Nothing says Scottish Holiday like a liquid dinner. G'night.

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.
