Surely staff both front desk and dining room, coffee brought to our table for breakfast looked as if it had been repeatedly used for many patrons with no washing between customers, room smelled of fresh paint, nice new decor though once it drys and is aired out.

Grand building, great views, lots to do on site

Posted 21-Jul-2014
Location: Edradour distillery tour, Black Spout waterfall (both walkable from hotel). Queens View well worth the drive.
We were pleasantly surprised with what this hotel has to offer - grand history and building, a nine hole golf course, tennis courts, a lovely Roman style pool / spa area, lovely walks eg to the magnificent Black Spout waterfall, games room etc. Breakfast was a bit crowded but it wasn't a problem waiting in the nice sofas; we didn't try dinner.

Old world charm.

Posted 09-Jul-2014
Pros: The grounds were beautiful
Cons: Fans or air conditioning would be good.
Location: Pitlochry is a beautiful village that oozes Scottish culture
This hotel has stunning grounds and views from the dining room. Food was really good but service terrible. Many eastern European waiters that don't understand English so requests were either ignored or passed on to a superior. Laundry was not functioning the day we were there. Our room was comfortable but warm so with no fan or air conditioning we kicked off the sumptuous bedding. Would be fantastic in spring or autumn.

Great Place History Plus

Posted 22-Jun-2014
Pros: View from Dining room, the different areas you could just chill out through the palace the staff worked very hard in the dinning room
Location: The town is about 5 in by car away great to wander
We had a great time if we were going to stay in a castle we were going to have a Superior Room. Lovey it was a large bedroom with small table and chairs and dresser, then separate room as a change room with dressing table, then a huge bathroom all done in white tiles lovely old character. Our room over looked the gardens at the front beautiful. We ate all our meals in the Dinning room great food really good the staff a very run off their feet, the view is wonderful

Excellant Hotel, we had the best weekend

Posted 02-Jun-2014
Pros: Architecture the views the bedroom also the roman style Spa. The Staff and that wee dream on entering the Hotel. Everything about this Hotel.
Cons: The only thing was because the weather was brilliant. The Dovet on the bed was too heavy for Summer but there was no problem at all
Location: Pitlochry shops. Festival theatre , Fiscally feeding the Ducks, Queens View was amazing, the surrounding area brilliant gateway to the North
2 nights bed& breakfast fabulous Hotel, all the staff were friendly also the food was good. The gardens and forest are amazing. We loved the trek up to the black spout waterfall. Pitlochry is place we have been to lots of times but the first time at the Atholl Palace was amazing. The pool was great a nice swim before breakfast and a wee seat in the Museum learning the history of the Palace was interesting. Can't wait to come back.

Palatial Hotel, needing a freshen up

Posted 13-May-2014 on Hotels.com
Grand Hotel in beautiful surroundings, but disappointingly the hotel looked dated in the rooms, and corridors connecting the rooms. Pool, spa and sauna facilities were closed when we visited, and we hadn't been advised by Hotels.com in advance, so you can imagine our surprise arriving to find Pool and Sauna weekend we had booked up for, wasn't available. The Hotel had been advising of the pool closure for weeks in advance on it's own website, but we hadn't looked there, only on Hotels.com Overall experience- we felt very let down, but would like to retry the hotel, once the facilities re-open. Breakfast was delicious and the lounges in the main bar / lobby were very relaxing.
