Bookings are essential for both breakfast and dinner, we are operating with more space in the restaurant which means we have less seating available.

At all other times if you hear the fire alarm you should follow the hotel evacuation procedure, details of which are included in your bedroom folder.

To ensure your and our safety we have had to make a few changes. You will notice more signage around the hotel. We do ask that you socially distance where possible at 2 metres. We have 26 different hand sanitiser stations around the hotel and you will see we have screens at reception and other team members will be wearing gloves and face coverings.
We have had to make changes in our bedrooms and to our housekeeping programme In the room we have had to remove a few things you will notice there are no telephones, to contact us from your mobile please call 01796 472000, our phones are manned 24 hours. We have also removed, luggage racks, information folders, tissue boxes, paper and pencils. Whilst these items have been removed they are still available should you require them.

There will be no daily housekeeping, if you are staying for more than one night and should you require any additional items again please contact reception and we will get them brought to your room. Please leave your used towels outside your room in the morning and our team will in turn deliver you fresh towels.
We have public area cleaners going around the hotel keeping all of those touch points clean.If you are using any of the hotel public areas such as the restaurant if you need to use the toilet can you please use the toilet in your bedroom. The public toilets are used by patrons from the bar and also are part of the Pitlochry Comfort Scheme and as such we strongly recommend you using the bathroom in your room.
