a good name.
Here, it is said,
Prince Charlie held his headquarters during the ’45’.
It is a good hotel,
a friendly and charming hotel”
– H. V. Morton,
author of “In Search of Scotland”
 
“The Salutation Hotel in South Street
was there when Prince Charlie
came to Perth in 1745,
and contains the room where he lay.
Its spacious dining room, 
with the great high-arched window
and musician’s gallery,
is worth seeing.”
– J. J. Bell,
“The Glory of Scotland”
