Our Angus Assured Clean & Safe Commitment

Dear Valued Guests,

At the Angus Hotel, we know a break to Blairgowrie is an opportunity for you to escape from the hustle of everyday life. We want you to still feel you are leaving it all behind for a while, whilst you take advantage of the Perthshire clean air, and a local welcome.

We are committed to staying true to our heritage, and that all-Important highland welcome. You can be assured that our aim is that you will always get the best out of your break with us.

You will see from the information, that we have created our own assurance program to keep everyone clean and safe. Like all hotels, we have had to apply changes in the way that we operate whilst we do our bit to minimise the risk from Coronavirus.  These changes are essential, and some are legislative, and they are there to protect you, our people, our environment and our local community.

If you have any questions, then we would be happy to hear from you at stay@theangushotel.com.

In the meantime, I look forward to welcoming you to the Angus Hotel very soon.

Warmest regards

Brian Robinson
Hotel General Manager

We’re good to go!

Our Clean and Safe practices are all self-assured at The Angus Hotel
We have managed all the risks in the hotel and VisitScotland have awarded us the UK accreditation “We’re Good to Go” for the systems and procedures we have put in place.

This initiative is a self-certification scheme by Visit England and the other three agencies across the UK, and specifically VisitScotland for the Scottish tourism sector. The accreditation is directly linked to national and sector specific public health and safety guidelines. For more information click here.
