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.

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.

honymoon revised!!

Posted 04-Oct-2015
Pros: The comfort of he public rooms and bed rooms , The efficiency of the manager of the dining room and the variety of the choices on the menu.
Cons: The third floor rooms has sloppy ceiling,easy to pump your head on it
Location: It is within a walking distance to the centre of the town and the theatre, but walking back might not as easy as the hotel is on hill
Spend our honeymoon in the Atholl Palace 39 years ago !! Been back on several time since, This hotel has Ben substantial upgraded even in the last few years : The leisure centre ,the jacuzzi,steam room,the sona are very clean and towels are provided ,the changing room is small but comfortable and adequate. The dinner had a very good choices of starters, mean coarse and deserts to cater for all different taste,the food was extremely well presented and prepared . All served by and under the direct supervision of an exceptionally efficient super dining room manager ( the Welsh Mr H Davies ) . The bedroom was specious with comfortable bed and very clean bathroom with Arran aromatic acceries and soft towels and bathrobes . The public rooms were comfortable,clean and warm with help yourself to coffee or tea after the dinner

Faded glory.

Posted 04-Oct-2015
Pros: The building itself, the views, good sized room, a good restaurant. Don't miss the frangipane tart!
Cons: The staff seemed rushed off their feet. One told us she had had 3 hours sleep before breakfast shift. Décor was tired and random.
Location: Lovely town with plenty of walking and scenery. We binged on stately homes: Scone Palace, Glamis Castle. Easy days out to both coasts of Scotland.
The things I couldn't rate above are the location and the building itself. It is a Victorian spa hotel, built like a castle, with a sweeping private drive up to the building and magnificent views of mountains on all sides. It is walking distance from the centre of Pitlochry, a wonderful centre for a holiday in the central highlands. The place could do with some money spending on it. The paintwork was tatty, there was one rickety lift, and the décor and upholstery in the public areas was less than splendid. A touch of Malmaison-style funking up would be good. Our room smelled musty and damp when we arrived, so we opened all the windows and later that day all the window frames were crawling with flies, which thankfully housekeeping dealt with for us. The Stag's Leap bar had a cocktail menu but when requested the staff didn't seem to have the ingredients for the cocktails. And the music in the bar seemed to be perpetual show tunes by Lloyd Webber. It seemed to be catering exclusively for the elderly. I got the feeling the place is being run on the cheap with lots of overworked eastern European staff who were too tired to take a pride in their work. And the maitre d' in the restaurant was auditioning for the role of Captain Mainwaring. The restaurant was very good for evening meals. Breakfast - well I personally have an aversion to those DIY toast conveyor belts that either just warm the bread or burn it to a crisp, but that's probably just me.

Hübsches Hotel, aber...

Posted 21-Sep-2015
Pros: Die schöne Lobby und die Optik von außen.
Cons: Die Sauberkeit!
Location: Das Hotel befindet sich auf einem kleinen Hügel, unweit von der Innenstadt von Pitlochry. Dort ist es sehr schön und auch viel los.
leider enttäuschend für 4 Sterne und dem Preis. Die Lobby ist noch schön, aber unser Zimmer, welches sich mit "Garden Room" noch toll anhörte, war im Keller in der allerletzten Ecke. Der Teppich in grün mit Fußball/Football/Baseball Motiven war so gar nicht einem Palast-Hotel entsprechend. Die Größe des Zimmers für 3 Personen (2 Erw., 1 Kind) war super, aber nicht so schön eingerichtet, wie erwartet. Leider war das Badezimmer nicht ausreichend gereinigt worden. So fanden wir noch Duschzeug vom Vorgänger und in einem Zahnputzbecher befand sich eine braune Ablagerung, auch der Staub war noch überall zu entdecken. Das Frühstück war von der Auswahl her okay, aber auch dort war das Geschirr nicht sauber genug. Der Pool ist schön und auch die Umkleidekabinen sind in Ordnung. Alles in allem okay für eine Nacht, aber wer etwas Luxus- oder Palast-Atmosphäre erwartet, ist hier nicht gut aufgehoben (Preis/Leistung ist nicht gut abgestimmt). Da kann man für den Preis wesentlich schönere B&Bs finden.

Absolutely fantastic stay - A Palace!

Posted 14-Sep-2015
Pros: Location, room, pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room - everything!
Cons: Nothing - it is beautiful
Location: The town nearby (10 minute walk) is really what Scotland is all about. Go to the Old Mill restaurant - great food and atmosphere
We were mesmerized by the Manor - it is absolutely stunning! The rooms were big and very comfortable - we had everything we needed. Bathroom was not spacious however it was everything we wanted or needed. Indoor pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and scenery is dreamlike! Highly recommend it for more than 1 night!
