Hotel set on hill overlooking countryside

Posted 23-Feb-2016
Pros: The hotel was excellent. We were offered a complimentary drink when we arrived. We were also given a map of the hotel grounds and surrounding area.
Cons: The selection of meals and snacks in the bar.
Location: The location was excellent, five minute taxi from the railway station, beautiful surroundings, plenty of walks, local distillery is well worth a visit
Our stay at the hotel was very pleasing. The staff And facilities were excellent, although we had to get help to get the tv to work, the Victorian experience is still undergoing restoration. Would go back again and make more use of the hotel facilities. We were made to feel very welcome. The staff couldn't do enough for you.

Beautiful old style hotel

Posted 25-Jan-2016
Pros: Location, style, food and friendly staff.
Cons: Kids should be allowed access to all leisure facilities if accompanied by an adult, as it stands kids under 16 only allowed to use the pool.
Location: Lots of good eating options in the town , although it's the wrong time of season as a lot are still closed. However those that are open are pleasant.
Beautiful old style hotel, ideally located for local amenities, also ideal location for further exploring in beautiful surroundings. Staff welcoming and friendly, food was a good experience , we opted for the stag head ( hotel bar) cuisine which was excellent.

Lovely location, however hotel a bit dated.

Lovely location, great views but quite dated. Understandably the building must cost a fortune to maintain but everything from the lift, reception, pool and rooms seemed very tired. Nice as a one off to say you've stayed at the "palace" but doubt we'd return.

Athol Palace Hotel

Posted 21-Nov-2015 on Hotels
We came to Pitlochry to visit the Edrador Distillery and as a stop between Inverness and Stirling. Unfortunately, we arrived too late for the last tour and had to leave town too early the next day for a tour. We will allow more time for Pitlochry when we return to this area in the future.

Nice Place to Stay

Posted 09-Nov-2015
Pros: The food and bar were excellent.
Cons: The shower in the bathroom was a huge disappointment. The bathroom had been refurbished recently going by the state of the tiles and rest of the room
Location: Loads to see and do in the area.
A really nice hotel to stay at if you are wanting to stay in Pitlochry. It is just on the outskirts of Pitlochry, but it's not far to walk into the centre of town.

Nice hotel with excellent views

Posted 21-Oct-2015
Pros: Staff and surrounding area
Cons: Rooms could be a little cleaner but they were not bad.
Location: The location is vary nice, the distillery, the forest and the close proximity to the highway were a big plus
Nice hotel with excellent views and a lot of old world feel. There was plenty to do at the hotel, hiking, tennis, golf and a swimming pool. Built in the late 1800's as a hotel makes it more a comfortable rather then a converted manor house. We enjoyed the history and the surrounding area as well. We arrived late and the night time desk clerk was a real pleasure, taking the time to show us around the hotel upon our arrival.

Old and worn bedrooms

Posted 14-Oct-2015 on Hotels
My husband and I stayed for 2 nights while we attended our friends wedding. While the setting and common areas of the hotel were beautiful our room was extremely disappointing. For the price that is charged we really were expecting a lot more. The bathroom was old and grubby with several broken tiles. The room itself had an old worn carpet and the wooden furniture was bashed and chipped. The bed was small and extremely uncomfortable and the bedroom window was filthy. The hotels saving grace is its staff, every staff member we encountered was wonderfully helpful and polite.
