Review of Glenfarg Hotel, Perthshire, Scotland

Good – reasonable rates (£35 for a single room on Saturday in September 2008), friendly staff, spacious, comfortable rooms, good breakfast, free upgrade to twin room.

Bad – my bedroom appeared to have boxed in plumbing pipes which meant every time water was used in my room and an adjacent room that it was quite noisy. Breakfast was a a bit chaotic.

Score out of 10 – 7

Glenfarg Hotel

I stayed Glenfarg Hotel, near Perth, for one night on Saturday 20 September 2008. I wanted to stay in that area so searched for accommodation in that area on the HotelsCombined price comparison site. The best rate I found was at the Glenfarg Hotel on the Skoosh site for £35, I had to pay the full amount on booking. I checked on the hotel’s own website and the price quoted was £47.

The Glenfarg Hotel is situated in the village of Glenfarg, close to the M90 motorway, around 10 miles south of Perth. It’s a good location to explore Perthshire, Fife and Dundee.

I was upgraded to a twin room with a window to the side of the hotel. The room was large, with new matching curtains and bedspreads. The bathroom was a bit old fashioned. The main problem I had with the room was the noise from plumbing as pipes appeared to be boxed in down the wall at the side of the room.

It was very busy at breakfast and the buffet wasn’t fully stocked there was no milk for the cereal, orange juice or coffee in the flask at one point. I can’t understand why some hotels have their tea and coffee in flasks as opposed to bringing a tea or coffee pot to your table. However the cooked breakfast was good quality and freshly cooked.

The reception staff were extremely helpful when I asked for local directions on departure.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at the Glenfarg Hotel, it was comfortable and clean with a relaxed friendly atmosphere at a good price. Fortunately the noisy plumbing didn’t disturb my sleep. The hotel needs to be better organised for breakfast.
