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.

... decided we were enjoying ourselves so much we would have lunch. After dinning we went for a walk around the course Ryan becoming more and more enthralled in the course and vowing he would come back on a boys golfing trip. He didn't bring a card verifying his handicap so it would have been difficult to golf. There are several courses at St. Andrew's: The Old Course, Then New Course, The Castle Course, ...
... I just sit on what ever speed the **** is happy on. Then there are the country lanes which are only wide enough for one car. You have to be careful on these and be prepared to stop in a hurry if something is coming in the opposite direction. We are staying in Abbots House B&B. According to Bookings.com it is 3 star. Compared to the Knoll Guest House (3 star) and the New Inn (2 star), I'd say that Abbots is lucky to rate above 1 star. See the description under placed I ...
... as we wanted to do the distillery tour. The distillery is a short way out of Pitlochry and the visit proved really worthwhile and educational although I felt that it is perhaps becoming a bit too commercialised.
There were about 20 of us on our tour at £7 per head but we were treated to a very nice tasting and we were each given a glass for our troubles.
From Pitlochry it was on to my favourite little place, Aberfeldy, but ...
We got up at about 8.40am and had some toast for breakfast. After saying goobye to Marion, we left and headed Northwards. We crossed the Firth of Forth on the Forth Road Bridge and arrived at Mary Clark's in Perth at about 10.30am. We had morning tea - coffee and pancakes and tunnocks (chocolate and marshmallow biscuits). We stayed for about an hour and then kept driving.
We drove North past Blairgowrie and stopped in braemar to have a look in a ...
