A Highland retreat

This New Years break was made even more special by the setting of this wonderful hotel, and the experience was enhanced by the extremely friendly and courteous staff.

Nice Hotel Overall But Could Do With A Bit Of TLC

Posted 25-Nov-2014
Staff are fabulous and very efficient! The hotel itself could do with a refurbishment! Biggest complain would be the shower! Really poor shower facilities

Lovely country house hotel

Posted 19-Nov-2014
Pros: The character and history no generic hotel here!
Cons: Hot water was lacking both morning and evening had to have lukewarm baths.
Location: See above
Perfect for our winter break. Pity about the conferences which were ongoing and noisy but understand that to keep a large Victorian establishment like this going needs more than just passing trade. Many thanks to the staff for such a restful stay. Recommend Pitlochry Festival Theatre too excellent performance of Ladykillers.

Lovely comfortable hotel with character.

Posted 02-Nov-2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed 2 nights and found the hotel perfect and the staff very helpful and professional. The room (208) was very comfortable but the shower was a little lacking in pressure. The food in the restaurant is fine but it was served far too quickly (not normally a complaint but it felt like a production line) and was not the highest standard although well cooked, very tasty and good portion size. The breakfast was excellent with a vast choice available. The hotel sits in an enviable position in Pitlochry and the surroundings are wonderful. General appearance was better than we'd expected after reading some reviews and we were more than happy. We would definitely stay here again.

Honest Scottish Charm

Posted 24-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
I love the old world feel, log fires on all the time and a feeling of time suspended. Not being one of the big chains it was lovely, with local staff speaking with Scottish accents, not slick or overly friendly, good honest local folk which I loved. Food in the restaurant was really amazing, to be honest much better than I expected.

Hopes were high and stay just OK

Posted 08-Oct-2014
We had very high hopes upon arrival at this hotel. For the price, it isn't worth it in our opinion. Rooms are very outdated overall. Hotel reception was nice, restaurant staff wasn't that helpful with the exception of one younger man who joked with us during dinner and breakfast. All surrounding/outside area is beautiful, but this is easily found elsewhere.

Highlight of our 28-day stay in the UK!!

Posted 29-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
It was a brilliant experience. The location was dreamy. Just what you would expect a castle/palace to look like. Beautiful, comfortable lobby with many luxurious chairs to sit and converse. A beautiful dining area that looked out onto the forest and mountains beyond. Excellent fun with the putting green in front and the tennis courts and walking paths. Not to mention all the pampering available at the spa. An added unexpected bonus was meeting people from Denmark and sharing conversation. Dinner was sumptuous and the breakfast buffet was a huge variety of breakfast foods. Kelly, at the front desk, was a great help to us and very pleasant. She is as memorable to us for her friendliness and helpfulness as the other many wonderful aspects of the Atholl Palace. Our only negative is that we did not stay long enough!!! This should be a must on anyone's itinerary. Do not pass up on this opportunity.

Everything about the hotel and service was a high standard. I would find it hard to say anything bad about our stay.
