The hotel occupies a landmark property that first opened in 1890 as one of the original British railway hotels.

Settled since prehistoric times and formerly known as the “capital” of Scotland because of the frequent residence in the city by the Scottish court, Perth is now a popular destination for domestic and international travelers.

Visitors can enjoy time in the city’s many attractions such as museums, theatres, churches, whisky distilleries, breweries or on one of the numerous golf courses located in and around the two main parks of the city, North Inch and South Inch. The surrounding Perthshire countryside boasts breathtaking parks that attract many visitors in pursuit of outdoor and adventure sports.

Sitting within landscaped gardens, Radisson Blu Hotel, Perth was originally built as one of the British Transport Hotels due to its proximity to the train station, and is a Grade II listed building, featuring beautiful architecture and grand staircases.

Shortly after its original opening, the then Prince of Wales and future King Edward VII inspected and approved the hotel for a visit by his mother, Queen Victoria, who became a frequent guest.

She would often split her journeys to Balmoral Castle by visiting the hotel for lunch in her private room, and a ‘royal passage’ was created, linking Perth train station with the property.

Radisson Blu Hotel Perth features 75 guest rooms and suites, a restaurant, lobby bar, garden bar, fitness gym, treatment rooms, as well as two ballrooms, including the largest outside Edinburgh, and five large meeting and conference rooms.

The hotel’s restaurant, Victoria, will be a vibrant, social meeting place offering a spin on classic British dishes served with organic wines.

The modern grill menu celebrates the beauty of the land and sea through fire, foraging, and the cultivated fields brought to life by way of seasonally inspired classics that promote sustainable, fresh, organic, and local ingredients, from grass-fed beef to foraged herbs and great farm cheeses.

General Manager, Asen Panagonov, says: We are delighted to be bringing this much needed upscale hotel quality to Perth under the Radisson Blu brand. We aim to restore the hotel to its rightful position as the jewel of the Fair City and welcome guests for a relaxing stay within a vibrant city, surrounded by stunning scenery.

The addition of such a historic landmark property to our Radisson Blu portfolio in the UK is a great achievement. Radisson Blu Hotel, Perth is the seventh property to join our Scottish portfolio, with other hotels located in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Inverness,” comments Tom Flanagan Karttunen, Area Senior Vice President, Northern & Western Europe at Radisson Hotel Group.

With the health and safety of guests and team members as its top priority, Radisson Blu Hotel, Perth is implementing the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol program.

The in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocols were developed in partnership with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company, and are designed to ensure guest safety and peace of mind from check-in to check-out.
