About

Serene glens, lush forest, rushing rivers, sparkling waterfalls. Perthshire is one of the most beautiful counties in Scotland, and the fabulous Dunkeld House Hotel is the jewel in its crown. Just 90 minutes from Glasgow or Edinburgh, this spectacular resort hotel nestles amid 280 acres of stress-busting countryside, so get ready to reconnect with nature as you unwind, recline and drift deeper into zen.

Getting away from it all is easy here. Even the journey is relaxing, as it takes you through Dunkeld, Perthshire’s prettiest village, through a stone arch and down the hotel’s sweeping, one-mile drive, complete with fields full of frolicking deer.

And then there’s the Grade II listed mansion itself. Although there is an outside entrance to the spa for those who are coming for a day package, it’s worth taking a quick peek at the former country home of the Dukes of Atholl if only to admire the famous stained glass window.

A tree-lined path leads from the hotel down to the banks of the glorious River Tay. Follow it for a mile further and you’ll reach the centre of Dunkeld. Be sure to set aside some time to explore independent shops and cafes, while Dunkeld Cathedral and Blair Castle are both within easy reach. The Tay Forest Park is ideal for a long, lazy walk amid the most picturesque scenery, while a little further afield you’ll find the fascinating Scone Palace. If you’re a culture vulture, make sure you spend some time at the exceptional Perth Museum and Art Gallery.

There are more than 90 sumptuous bedrooms at Dunkeld House, so turn that day of decadence into an overnight escape if you can. You’ll find two stunning treatment rooms in the spa, a top quality gym and an extremely popular restaurant with stunning riverside views.

Spa day with afternoon tea

The actual spa experience was really good. We really enjoyed it and the staff were great. The afternoon tea was really disappointing, the service was terrible. The waiter then spilled a drink (which of course was an accident which is fine) however it went all over my partners bag and jacket. The waiter cleaned underneath my girlfriends jacket further soaking it. He apologised which of course we understand but then no staff came near us for the rest of our time there, not to offer us drinks or not to check how things were.

We got a lovely welcome from reception and enjoyed the pool, sauna, steam room and, of course, the view. The spa was lovely and quiet and relaxing. We then had facials, which were fantastic and very professionally done. Finally, a superb afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings. The only tiny issue was no shampoo or conditioner in the showers - not great after a head massage with oil. But having to wash my hair with body wash was a small price to pay for such a fantastic afternoon.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Dunkeld House Hotel do afternoon tea?

Yes it does, and the hotel has a room totally devoted to partaking in this indulgent treat. The spectacular Orangery offers incredible views of the fast-flowing River Tay and the mature trees in the hotel grounds, whilst botanical decor and oversized pots bring the outside in. 

Served between 12pm and 3pm (booking your time slot is a must), you’ll find three tiers groaning with sweet and savoury treats. Try mini bagels filled with smoked salmon and cream cheese, tasty arancini balls and strawberry lemon scones with generous helpings of Chantilly cream. Wash it down with something aromatic, add some fizz or choose an expertly mixed cocktail or mocktail.

Does Dunkeld House Hotel have a swimming pool?

It sure does. The 10m swimming pool isn’t just a pristine spot for a dip or some leisurely lengths. Those floor-to-ceiling glass windows also give you the chance to swim while admiring stunning views of the nature that surrounds you. 

Does Dunkeld House Hotel have accommodation?

Can’t bear to leave after your spa experience? We don’t blame you. Luckily, Dunkeld House Hotel has 100 bedrooms that let you extend your spa day into a spa stay. From cosy doubles to deluxe rooms with their own balconies, you can choose to stay in the original Grade II-listed building, the recently refurbished extension or one of the pet-friendly annex buildings in the grounds.

Is Dunkeld House Hotel accessible?

Yes. There are two fully adapted bedrooms and ramp and lift access to all floors and general areas. 

What are the check-in and check-out times at Dunkeld House Hotel?

Coming to Dunkeld House Hotel on a spa day? Arrival time is generally 10am but do check your booking confirmation as arrival times can vary. If you’re tempted to stay overnight, you can check-in to the hotel from 3pm, while check-out time is 11pm.

Is Dunkeld House Hotel family friendly?

Yes it is. Although children under 16 can’t use the sauna or steam room, they can splash in the pool between 10am and 12pm, and 3pm to 6pm. Family rooms are located within the main hotel building, and each comes with a sofa bed which can sleep up to two small children.

Is Dunkeld House Hotel dog friendly?

Don’t want to leave your furry friend behind? Luckily, well-behaved pooches are welcome at Dunkeld House Hotel but they’ll need to save up their paw-cket money as it costs £20 per room per night. For that you can bring two small dogs or one large one, but they can’t stay in the main hotel or go into public areas.

Does Dunkeld House Hotel have a golf course?

No, but there is one very nearby and it’s a real Highland beauty. Just an eight-minute drive takes you to Dunkeld and Birnam Golf Club. The course here has a heathland setting that makes it one of the most picturesque in Perthshire.
