We were packed and on the road around 8am bound for Scotland in Maureens little mini. Our first port of call, Edinburgh. It was a somewhat pretty, but largely uneventful two and a half hour drive from Durham to Edinburgh. Its a nice city, old buildings, cobblestone roads, a relaxed feel and castle towering over the city. That was to be our primary …
... an hour for lunch - I just got a chicken, mayo and lettuce roll and a coke :) haha taking in the local culture lol (I'm writing this the day after) so we had dinner in the hotel (nothing too special) then we went out to a bar that turned into a karaoke bar at 10. It was really fun just chatting to everyone. I got pretty drunk haha but I think a lot of people did; it ...
... one time. There was also space inside for sheep and goats! Not sure that I would have enjoyed living with the smelly animals but I'm sure they would have enjoyed the warmth and cosiness. It was also a safety place for the animals as they would have been regularly stolen and used by other families so at least the family could keep an eye on them. From all archeological evidence people living 2500 years ago actually had quite a nice life. There was places to grow ...
I got up early and had a wander around the property while it was still dark. This hotel is a large, family place where children are well catered for. There are horse stables, swimming pools, putt putt golf and about 50 other activities. After a lovely breakfast, we left on the bus for Fowlis Wester. The weather forecast said showers so we had our wellies and waterproof clothing. As it turned out, the weather remained dry and cloudy with patches of sun. It was a ...
Saturday 28th September,
We discovered a web site called 'Secret Scotland' that promises to lead you through the 'Real' Scotland - uses roads that it tags - 'the most scenic road in the highlands' - or - 'runs beside the prettiest waterway in Scotland'- and it hasn't disappointed. We've had a terrific day following their incredibly precise ...

Decent place to stop over. Simple, but comfy enough. Kind staff and good breakfast. Bit noisy

Historical Traveler Reviews Fisher's Hotel Pitlochry
What do you expect for 3 ***'s
Stayed for two nights B&B, in a single room.
It was okay, the staff in the restaurant were quite attentive, but late evening at the reception, were conspicuous by their absence. This gave me cause for concern re security.
I might stay here again but if so, would take my key out on the town!!
We liked it very much good valentines weekend
we went to the fishers hotel last year for valentines weekend found it very good food very well presented but after all we are scottish and dont find any problems not like the english always compaining about everything
My wife and I stayed in the Hotel for two nights, when we arrived, we parked in the car park, which is about 500+ meters away. First impresions were off puting as the receptions is poor and all the staff are young. The first room we were given was in poor order, dirty and it had no shower. It did have a bath which had all the enamle peeling off. The second room we were moved to was cleaner, but the bed needed the bible put under one of the legs to stop it rocking. the curtians were also off the rail. It did have a shower but no bath. The shower was only big enough to stand in, but you could not bend to pick anything up. The halls were in poor condition and the carpets could have done with a good clean. the food in the resturant was ok, but nothing to write home about. the gents toilets did not have any hand driers fitted and the towel holders were empty the full two days we were there, even although, we reported it. Overall a poor hotel with little to offer, I am well traveled and I would never use it again.
took my mum away for the night to what i thought would be a lovely quite hotel. got a good deal through a sunday paper (£90 DB&B).
Having read previous reviews of this hotel, I was dubious about staying, however it could not have been better. The managemnet, staff and service were first class and the food etc was superb. We were made feel totally at home and nothing was ever too much trouble.
I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and the refurbishment of the puiblic areas has certainly made this one of the best hotels in Pitlochry.
Very shabby hotel
We spent two nights here on a week long trip to Scotland. The hotel was disappointing to say the least. The room was shabby, in desperate need of an overhaul. The curtains were hanging off the rails, the shower was the smallest I have ever seen. The breakfast itself was OK (although one was bought out way before the other) but we had to wait 20 minutes before we could be seated which is unheard of in a hotel. Plus, most of the staff couldn't understand English so we didn't get what we ordered. Making matters worse, the restaurant manager was very unfriendly, making us feel like we a total inconvenience to have the cheek to complain as we didn't get what we ordered.
I would not recommend this hotel at all!!!
we arrived at the hotel at 3pm for chekck in - a lovely entrance and check in desk - staff were polite and friendly. We had 2 double rooms booked for 1 night - we ended up with a triple room and a twin room so no problems! we reserved dinner as it was very busy - it was a great meal - very traditional scottish menu and for the money it offered excellent choices. breakfast was good too you really cant go wrong with a full scottish to start the day! There are 2 lounge areas smoking and non smoking all refurbished to a high standard and very nice. The bedrooms are a good size but my only suggestion would have been that when they took the time to decorate the place why on earth did they put the same curtains and bed covers back on as that made it feel old and tired.
We found this hotel overcrowded, our room was up in the roof. Curtains would not close, were 18" from top of window. Room was dingy & cold. Bathroom, shower would not work and we reported this twice. Food O.K. entertainment average. Would definitely not use this hotel again.
My new Husband and I arrived on the third day of our honeymoon. We had booked the room some time before and had explained that we were on honeymoon and so, obviously, booked a double bed. On arrival, we found that the reception area was dirty, tatty and certainly very unwelcoming. We held our breath and went up to our room. Imagine our disappointment on discovering they had put us in a twin room. That was bad enough but the room was horrible. Wallpaper peeling off the walls, the carpet hadn't seen a vacuum cleaner for some time, the bedding was ripped and all in all it was just terrible. I immediately went down to reception where they duly apologised for the 'misunderstanding' and offered to find us accommodation elsewhere in Pitlochry. This they did and so we ended up in a beautiful 3 star hotel which was far superior to Fishers. How on earth Fishers got 3 stars is an absolute mystery to myself and my Husband. We will never recommend anybody to even go near the place.
Great Time had by all
My husband, in-laws and myself had the pleasure of staying at this hotel and I can highly recommend it. The staff were helpful and polite. The food was good and the accomodation very comfortable. The town of Pitlochry itself is beautiful. I would definately return.
