Perth Central Travelodge: No longer the Innkeepers Lodge

On the backs of the Tay across the bridge from the main shopping area, the Perth Central Travelodge retains the facade of The Isle of Skye Hotel. In between times, it was the Innkeepers Lodge, Perth Central.

Adjoins to a Toby Carvery.

I booked this up for Valentines Night to tie in with the restaurant I wanted, booked 14 October at £19. Remember this is Travelodge, hotel equivalent of Ryanair! No frills, you get a flatscreen TV andtea-coffee and kettle, but a single small bar of soap in the bathroom so remember the shampoo and toileteries

Central, quiet, clean but basic . What do you want for £19 a couple though?

For breakfast you can walk through to the Toby Carvery without going outside, the corridor is fully adjoining

Dunkeld House Hotel, Dunkeld: only 15 minutes away

Its 13 miles north of Perth, but still convenient.

Part of the Hilton UK chain, in a converted country house. Good standard rooms, but bathroom a bit tired. Good food and friendly, efficient service. Has a swimming pool & gym - looked good.

Definitely recommended due to unique qualities

Surrounded by parkland and woods. River Tay (one of Scotland's famous salmon rivers) flows through the garden.

I saw a red squirrel and deer in the woods, rabbits on the lawn.

Very picturesque and peaceful retreat.

Comely Bank Cottage Bed and Breakfast: Friendliest Hostess

I discovered Comely Bank Cottage from the yellow pages and I am glad I let my fingers do the walking. This discovery turned out to be the best B&B for our UK whole trip. We were rewarded with a lovely charming room after a long drive from York to Perth.

The room was beautifully done up. There was a double bed and a single bed in the room. And a fireplace. WOW!!! On the dresser, there is a breakfast menu which you complete daily and leave it for Mrs. Marshall (the hostess).....wonderful service as the following morning, your breakfast gets served as you have requested. Additionally, my little girl enjoyed the Barney video tapes and I was grateful for it. It kept her entertained while we had some quiet time.

... find a good place to stay?: How do I ...

Perthshire has many good places to stay, with many different styles and prices, from exclusive hotels and travel lodges, to family run B&Bs, quality hostels and camp sites.

A good starting point is to check the VisitScotland grading. This awards 1-5 stars for various "quality" assessments, made by inspectors. Like any such scheme, 5 (the best) is hard to achieve, and few businesses like to be in the bottom categories, so most establishments are either 3 or 4 stars. It is a crude science which misses vital factors - not least of which is price. No account of price is taken into account, so you must do your own 'value judgement'. Also, not all businesses are in the scheme - and this does not reflect their quality.

When in Perthshire you can shop around, whereby you will choose largely upon your impressions of signs, building design and landscaping. To focus your hunt more efficiently go into one of the Tourist Information Centres, where helpful staff will advise. They genuinely want to help. They can also make reservations for you - especially helpful if language is an issue for you.

Researching on-line is very much the way forward, with a plethora of websites vying for attention. Refining search engine terms helps bring out some of the best websites. You choose if they reflect the actual accommodation but at least you should get pictures to help.

As one of the most important aspects of a good stay is the people you meet and who run the accommodation, it is well worth speaking directly to them. Websites are helpful and so too brochures and information centres. But reserve your decision for when speaking to people, and listen to not just what they are saying but how they sound, background noises and how they respond to non-standard questions: Ask about special diets, smoking, pets, disabled access, traffic noise, allergies, local walks. These can elicit interesting manners and attitudes.

After all this - look at the prices - and think what you need. If rest is essential, then a quiet location and room is a priority. If anonymity and privacy is preferred, then small houses and hostels may be too friendly.

Prices start from around £10 per person, in a hostel. Off season, or if travelling in a group of 2-4 persons, you may well get a room to yourself. As hostels provide facilities to cook, plus many others like laundries and common areas, and have very individual quirks and character, they can be very appealing to some.

A word of warning:
The G8 Summit is being held at Gleneagles Hotel, near Auchterarder, in July 2005. The associated security, media and protest attention will put huge demand on Perthshire accommodation. The same week, Perthshire also hosts the T-in-the-Park music festival.

budget accommodation: Youth Hostel Closed

There is a real problem for Perth, losing both its Youth Hostel and a camping ground will mean many budget travellers move on. Pity.
This is a superb centre to base oneself.

The hotels are overpriced.

Many B&Bs are moving to accommodate the backpacker market, but mainly the self drive car hire type. Backpackers are flocking to Pitlochry, 30 miles north, so missing much.
