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.

This morning we packed up the car and hit the road north with our destination being Perth in Scotland. Before we left Great Ayton Kate and Roy wandered off together, while Nathan and Traci were packing, to find one last geocache in this beautiful area.
We were on the road just after 9.30am and drove to nearby Middlesbrough and brought two new tyres for the car, as the front ones were looking well worn. Well, we have done over ...
... 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 ...
... and got booking. We are traveling to Ireland to visit Dee's family and then down south to England to visit my boys. The car is being used for this and I will be leaving it at my sons for the year. Will be handy when we return.
Easy jet provided the best price out to Berlin and then we will fly by Air Berlin onto St Petersburg.
Here's hoping that the problems out in Russia don't get out of hand.
Train from St Petersburg ...

On long open motorways ones right hand can get extremely sore holding onto the throttle grip and so like my Transalp I’m going to fit a small handle onto the grip where I can simply lay my hand instead of needing to hold the grip tight all the time.
The dealer I’m heading for is the Honda dealer where I bought this bike from and as always a good chat and a nice hot cup of coffee was to be had.
On my way again and ...
After this we finally went to Perth. We ate lunch at a place called The Willows which was probably the best food I'd had so far. Then we just walked around the city without really going anywhere. It was really pretty and old. The royals are going there on Friday so the city was getting ready to great them.
After this we went to Aberfeldy and saw the Castle Menzies-- kind of. It was closed but we drove up ...
