Review of the Station Hotel Perth, Scotland

I stayed at the Station Hotel In Perth on a Thursday night in November. It cost £40 for the night for a double room including breakfast, booked through the ebookers travel website.

The Station Hotel is a grand Victorian building. There is free parking for guests at the rear of the hotel. You need to get a permit from reception when you check in.

The dark wood staircase from the lobby up to the bedrooms had beautiful flower shaped carvings.

There were also lovely stained glass windows by the staircase.

I had a fair degree of difficulty unlocking the door of my room. My first floor room was pretty large for a standard room. I was happy that it was at the side of hotel. Although that meant that the view was over the railway station roof, it was nice and quiet. I reckoned that you might hear some road noise when staying in the superior rooms located nearer the front of the hotel.

The desk had plenty of space, I could have my Chromebook, both mobile phones charging and paperwork laid out and still have space to boil the kettle. It was also great to have a light directly above the desk.

The shower room was a bit tight. I could hardly wash my face in the sink due to the shelf above the sink.

Initially I thought that the firm bed was really comfortable, but I woke up in a sweat, to discover that there was a plastic backed mattress cover on the bed. I appreciate that hotels want to prolong the life of their mattresses, but I can’t sleep on a bed with plastic underneath me.

The restaurant was nicely done, with grey wooden tables and chairs, and fresh flowers on every table.

The buffet breakfast was really good, with a wide selection of fresh fruit.

In summary, I thought that the Station Hotel offered good value for money at £40 a night for two guests, including breakfast. The room was large and quiet. The only real negative was the plastic mattress cover.
