“Lunch in the bar”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Had lunch in the front bar, soup really nice, I had a Smokie and salmon pate, wish they would give oat cakes or bread with it, had to pay extra....been there before and this appears to be a problem as had mussels before and nothing to soak up the lovely sauce. Baked tattles also only come with lettuce....where is the rest of the salad. Expensive for a bar lunch when the little things are missed. Come on , you can do better...

Thank you very much for taking the time to post this review, the Smokie and Salmon pate comes with toasted bread which is standard and there should have been no extra charge,and I can only apologise that this did not happen and will take steps to make sure that this mistake will not happen again and my staff are aware of this.

Really nice hotel in Perth. Gentleman on reception was very helpful, directing us to a car park which wouldn't cost us a lot. All public areas were very impressive.
We were given a room on the second floor, but I had requested a low floor. We had just entered our room when the gentleman from reception arrived to say a mistake had been made and we could have a room on the first floor immediately. Room was lovely, good size and very clean. A small "ante room" with a sofa and table led into the bedroom. Bathroom was spotless. Lovely fluffy towels. Air con in room which was a bonus, even although middle of winter, the rooms were very warm and air con helped cool it down a bit.
We ate in the hotel and meal was lovely. Two courses £20.00. Service was excellent and staff again were very pleasant.
Usual fried breakfast with nothing to complain about.
Lots of bars and restaurants in immediate vicinity. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a low floor as stairs are rather narrow and winding.

We stayed in the hotel, with friends. The location was great if visiting the town, apart from the parking, which was problematical. The room was small, to the rear, which we thought would have been quiet. Unfortunately, that is the case for traffic, but not for the "night owls" who seem to appear from the nearby disco/night club from 1a.m. onwards. I was glad to get home for a night's sleep. The internal stairs are a nightmare, very difficult to get anywhere, due to small treads and tight angles !!! The staff were delightful and the public areas are well maintained and very pleasant. We would go back, but probably use public transport.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room, ask for one in the centre. There are a few that circle round an inner yard...

Just returned from a nights stay in The New County Hotel to celebrate my friends 40th birthday. What a fantastic city centre hotel just 5 mins walk from the train station. Rooms were modern, comfortable and immaculately clean, likewise are the restaurants and public areas where the decor is gorgeous. Unfortunately didn't eat in the hotel as we had prebooked elsewhere, however we will def give it a go on a return visit if the breakfast was anything to go by!! The Staff were all very helpful and could not offer to do enough for us, all with a smile on their face! Would definitely return here and would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel for a good value weekend break, or more!!

Room Tip: If you do have difficulty with stairs ask for a room on the 1st floor as it is a rather steep stairc...
