Nestled in the beautiful Perthshire landscape, Dunkeld House Hotel boasts an unrivalled experience of Scottish country living. Situated in 280 acres of gardens and natural woodland and overlooking the River Tay, renowned for its famous salmon fishing, the hotel is a place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy nature and Scottish scenery in all its tranquillity.

The stunning hotel offers the very best of Scottish hospitality and features spa facilities, award-winning food and drink, and outstanding hotel bedrooms and suites. Following a recent refurbishment, the hotel has recently reopened to reveal beautifully designed new guest bathrooms, featuring innovative and stylish products from Roca and Laufen.

The Brief

The hotel’s design team overseeing the project, were looking for high-quality bathroom products that would complement the luxury interiors of the hotel, whilst delivering contemporary style and clever functionality to suit their discerning guests.

Roca Group’s extensive knowledge and wide range of bathroom products from both Roca and Laufen brands, enabled the team to provide authentic and customized solutions that go above and beyond expectation.

The Specification

42 bathrooms were refurbished including 40 standard guest en-suite bathrooms and two luxurious suites.

The bathrooms feature the stunning vanity unit and elegant washbasin from the award-winning The New Classic range designed for Laufen in collaboration with star designer Marcel Wanders. Engaged to re-interpret classical styles using the material SaphirKeramik, every item included in The New Classic collection brings together the designer’s flair and creativity with Laufen’s mastery of raw materials. SaphirKeramik is renowned for its extremely fine walls with a thickness of around three millimetres, creating extremely thin and fine edges whilst still being very robust. The washbasin bowl sits on the elegant walnut vanity stand featuring a convenient towel rail, which is inspired by a neo-classical design aesthetic.

The New Classic vanity offers a superb focal point for the bathroom and is completed with Laufen’s stylish Val basin mixer, part of the iconic Val collection. The tactile design is created by the conical shape, as well as in the delicate-looking operating lever with its voluminous underside. This gives the single lever mixers a slim, light look which characterises the sophisticated Val range.
Roca’s stylish rectangular steel Carla bath is another key feature, with anti-slip base and maxiflow bath filler. The Carla collection stands out because of its warmth, freshness and versatility. These characteristics make it ideal for any kind of space, combining design, technology and style.

The two suites feature a stunning solid surface, freestanding bath from Roca’s extensive luxury bath collection, featuring soft curved lines and deep sides for a luxurious bathing experience. The bathing area includes the L90 floor fitted column bath/shower mixer for added versatility.
Roca’s Victoria T (T-500) concealed shower valve with generous Rainsense shower head, hose and Stella handset and shower rail kit are used in the generous shower areas, offering a practical and stylish solution and a pleasant showering experience.

The WC’s chosen to complete the guest bathrooms are from Roca’s ever-popular The Gap range including The Gap back-to-wall, floor-standing WC with luxury soft close toilet seat. Designed by gold medal winning ceramic designer Antonio Bullo, this collection delivers both a compact, contemporary and functional style, making it the perfect choice for the hotel bathroom.
Stylish accessories from Roca complete the overall look, including the Hotel toilet roll holder in chrome and Tempo robe hook.

Deborah Wadd, Specification Manager for Roca comments: “The Roca and Laufen products look simply stunning in this beautiful hotel. We are delighted to have been chosen for this project and feel that the Roca Group’s heritage of iconic design and timeless innovation make it an ideal fit for this superb Scottish hotel.”
