  • "Yeah having resident above was not ideal."

    Thankfully for 3 nights they must have been away but for final 2 nights loud beating music was playing well past midnight on both occasions. If they where there all nights this would have been a real issue. Also dog hair was still evident on the living room rug. Overall nice wee apartment - well furnished and great location. Pity about the neighbours above. We will return to Dunkeld but unfortunately (and only due to neighbours) would not revisit this property.

  • "The cottage itself is really nice: 1) Location is fantastic."

    Very central to the village. Walking distance to the river, some local walks, butchers, bakery and salmon shop. 2) Cleanliness - the cottage was extremely clean which was nice to see on arrival. 3) Lovely warm cottage - there's a nice electric fire to warm the living room. 4) Internet - good speed to stream TV and use your phone 5) Beds - really comfy 6) Nice welcoming gifts - wine and treats on arrival. Just 2 negatives, the first of which would unfortunately put us off coming back to this lovely apartment. 1) Noisy and rude neighbours live upstairs. This was the only real negative of our holiday, but spoiled parts of our trip. The people that live upstairs (not holiday let) are noisy and were also rude towards us. On multiple occasions throughout our holiday, there was extremely loud music playing (causing the ceiling to vibrate) - we escaped the noise by watching our laptop in the second bedroom, but this isn't what you want to do on your holiday! The first time this happened was on our first morning (Saturday), which started playing at around 8.30am! It's worth being aware that their floorboards are creaky so you can head their children / dog running around upstairs. You can also hear their TV when it's on. If you want a quiet, peaceful location, I'd seriously consider this one is for you, as it would be difficult to have a long lie in with the noise made upstairs. The man that lives upstairs was rude towards us on a few occasions, making snide remarks towards us under his breathe and sniggering at us when we saw him outside, not like the rest of the really friendly people in the rest of Dunkeld. 2) Parking - limited free parking on the road (it's a narrow street and hard to turn your car around on unless it's small).

  • "A lovely,, well equipped cottage in a great location."

    However, as it was an apartment, there was noise from upstairs, which made our dog bark quite a bit, which in turn must’ve annoyed the people upstairs. We did have a lovely holiday though in a beautiful part of the world.

  • "We had the pleasure of spending Christmas at 8 Cathedral street Dunkeld."

    our aim was to rent something small and cosy as it was just 3 of us staying. I was blown away by the apartment. very clean cosy and everything you need for a holiday we even received a beautiful little hamper which went down very nicely. We are familiar with Dunkeld as our son wife and young family live locally.so we were able to enjoy the lovely walks right on our door step and stand on the embankment of The Tay with our morning cup of tea with not a care in the world.so thank you so very much we have had an amazing Christmas and will be booking 8 Cathedral street again. happy new year to you all with Regards Diane and Mark Duffield kent.

    Always something different to do, lots going on in the village also. Area lovely and nice scenic walks. Booked cottage for next year with the dog too.

  • "Location is great just down from the Cathedral, however the downside is that it means constant people walking past the front and side of the house which if you've got a dog that's territorial it's not the best."

    The heating was off and despite trying to boost it as per the manual it still wouldn't come on. It may be summer but it's still Scotland! Dunkeld has some great walks though so we had a great time

  • "The good bits."

    Very nice welcoming goody basket. This is a delightful well furnished and laid out flat. It is thoughtfully kitted out, spotlessly clean and comfortable. There is lots of useful information on what to do and where to go, and also on the equipment in the flat. The flat is a hop skip and a jump away from shops, river, playpark, and Cathedral. Cathedral Street must have the highest concentration of Historical or Architectural Award plaques in the country. Dunkeld is a lovely historical village, bustling by day and tranquil by evening, and full of friendly people. Great chippy. It is a excellent centre for exploration in all directions. Don't be put off by on-street parking. It can be busy during the day but you are spoiled for choice from early evening on. The “bad” bits. The frying pan is twisted and you have to keep chasing your eggs uphill. The mirrors are too high for vertically challenged people. The door handles squeak and need oiled. The upside to this is that you get warning of a small child on an early morning tickle mission. We (Granny, Grampa, Mummy and 4 year old) will be happy gto go back again.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay , the cottage was very comfortable ."

    We were very lucky as the weather was excellent during our stay , and therefore the garden was a huge bonus and and was a real suntrap and useful because of our dog who also loved her stay . The table and chairs was really useful and enabled us to eat outside . Very central for all local amenities and walks . The one comment is that as soneone who likes to cook , the kitchen could do with more utensils as had no serving spoons at all , The back door sticks on opening and had scratched the floor . The lock did not always open easily with the key , and we all felt was not the most secure with just a basic Yale lock on a door with alot of glass .

  • "We have stayed near Dunkeld on previous occasions but never in Dunkeld itself."

    8 Cathedral Street was perfect for exploring this beautiful area. A view of the river Tay from the kitchen window is a perfect way to start the day waiting for the kettle to boil. The garden is small and enclosed perfectly safe for our dog and the sturdy picnic table meant coffee in the sunshine, lunch outside and pre evening nibbles and drinks were all in a perfect setting. The location was absolutely perfect for exploring the town and walking from the front door without needing to take the car out. Having space to park the car near the cottage was also a positive benefit. The cottage is very well appointed and really comfortable. We will certainly be rebooking for next year.

  • "The location was great, the apartment was very nicely furnished and comfortable."

    The problem we had was with the noise from the apartment above. There was lots of moving around and general "lumping " about, but it was at 11 pm to well after midnight and again at 5:30 am to after 7 am, and this was every night. We're not unreasonable people - they could well be working folk, not holiday makers, but by the end of the week we were shattered from lack of sleep. This is not what we go on holiday for. It is such a shame, as everything else was as good as it could have been, but we won't book this apartment again for this reason.

  • "Overall my family and I were happy with the cottage."

    I had lived there over 20 years ago and it brought up a lot of good memories. One thing that I think you need o be aware of is the condensation in the bathroom was a lot. To the point that we often found a puddle of water under the loo and sink in the morning from the collection over the night. Also leaning back against the water tank of the loo was not advised as this was often also wet with condensation. I am not sure how you could sort it out but I would advise you to look into it. Overall the cottage has been done up in a lovely way. Thank you
