Scottish Field Review: January Edition
We were delighted to discover we have been included in the January edition of The Scottish Field Magazine, with an exceptional review from a Fife couple who stayed in our newly refurbished City of Perth Suite late last year. The review is included below:
The stress caused by not researching Perth's complicated one way system was immediately alleviated on stepping into the welcoming and comfortable reception of The Royal George Hotel.
The hotel is ideally situated near the centre of this compact city with its many interesting shops dotted amongst more well known names. The museum and art gallery, situated across the road, is well worth a visit and a relaxing pretty walk awaits just around the corner by way of the North Inch.
We were shown to our room - which was actually a suite - by the friendly receptionist. The room itself came as a surprise: it was huge, newly and tastefully refurbished and with fabulous views of The Tay. The en suite was equally impressive with a double shower, corner bath and really fluffy white towels. It was also spotlessly clean.
The bar and the dining room are more traditional in decor. The dining room has views over the Tay and the bar has sumptuous settees, perfect to sit back, relax and enjoy a tipple. We enjoyed our evening meal which was cooked to perfection, beautifully presented and washed down with some extremely pleasant New World Wine.
After a good nights sleep in - need I say - a massive, comfy bed we were ready to sample breakfast. We were not disappointed; the fresh fruit salad was well balanced and we had to try the full Scottish breakfast. We were pleased to note that the bacon and sausages were excellent butcher quality.
The hotel was deservedly busy when we were there. Without exception the front of house staff from the manager down to the barman, who only started that night carried out their work with a smile and a quiet professional manner.
The Royal George has an excellent feel to it and is a perfect base from which to explore what Perth has to offer. We will be back.
