While traveling through Perth I spent two nights in this hotel and I found the comfort and quality of the accommodations to be ideal. Great location to town center for exploring and dining! Right on the river Tay! My one complaint is in the size and quality of the bath towels - too small, thin and scratchy. Breakfast in the... More

We have stayed here several times before but was put off by the car park at the rear. Great news this is now resurfaced with all the spaces marked out, no more getting blocked in. Lovely room with Tay view and beautiful breakfast served in the restaurant with a lovely view also. Great location and good car park at last!

First, the more negative points. The TV in my room was small, and placed far away from the bed. The hotel has the slightly 'musty' smell that I always associate with 'traditional' Scottish hotels. There was a VERY limited range of complimentary drinks/snacks in the bedroom (one small pack of miniature digestive biscuits). The bathroom (and, to a lesser extent,... More

Traveling north and running late I decided to book "en Route" via a phone app, as it's a little like Russian roulette and Forest Gump & a box of chocolates, you never know what you'll get and here is where the title comes in, I'm not really sure how to rate this hotel, from the entry it's very posh and...

Visited the royal george during perth festival and I was very impressed. First of all the location is fantastic overlooking the river Tay and right in the heart of the town centre. The car park is small and can only hold around 10 vehicles but you can park on the high street for free between 6-8. Breakfast was fantastic each... More
