Perth is a relatively low capacity location and can get stretched at peak times. The Huntingtower Hotel is the potential answer to this. Being a little bit outside of the city, it captures the ambience of the Perthshire forests and surrounding countryside very well, set in a wonderfully secluded location, yet just a few miles from Perth city centre. The Huntingtower Hotel is a lovely country house, laid-out in six acres of fine landscaped gardens, complete with meandering burn and the resident ducks.
Set in a delightful grounds, the Huntingtower Hotel
Twin rooms are modern and comfortable. All guest rooms are decorated to the same high standard, 2 single beds with foam pillow and duvet covers, en-suite bathroom, welcome tray, free WiFi, digital TV, telephone, hairdryer and laptop safe. The Huntingtower is proving increasingly popular however, as it’s in the process of getting discovered, and is no longer independently owned.

The hotel is particularly popular with wedding parties, and in truth, it’s probably best avoided at weekends (unless you enjoy a lively atmosphere, in which case you’ll get a free party laid on!). The consequence of this niche is that the food and restaurants have to be significantly better than you might expect. The breakfast area is a light and airy conservatory, whilst dinner can be taken in a much more traditional oak panelled lounge that makes a nod towards the game lodge

Even though we have to impose some supplementary surcharges in line with passing costs on, we endeavour to adopt a sincere position that doesn’t seek to penalise such travellers and exploit your situation, occasionally absorbing some of the cost ourselves. Despite our commitment to fair play, there is still ultimately only two bottom-line options:
1: Pay a single traveller supplement
2: If you indicate a willingness, we can attempt to pair you in a twin room
It is worth mentioning that a single person will rarely be allowed to play a round of golf solo, and you will almost certainly be required to join a group. This can sometimes work to your advantage though, as you’ll be more flexible.
The reception area has a degree of class about it
Most hotels operate a cancellation premium of some description. The amount charged however varies between chains, and even different hotels within the same chain, it also fluctuates with little sense of predictability. In addition, the terms and conditions also differ with 3 days to 24 hours being typical cut-off points beyond which cover is invalidated. Group bookings can find they’re subjected to 28 days given that a hotelier takes a bigger risk accepting such a reservation to a mass cancellation. We try to reserve piecemeal as a result
Our policy is to recover what we can for you, but we are restricted in line with what the hotel offers. It’s always helpful to check the individual hotels T&C’s. We advise you if booking by credit card, to check that you don’t hold an added service item that came when you signed up. This might cover you.
