Excellence central location in Scottish highlands.

Posted 04-Jun-2017
Pros: Central location made for excellent day trips to prime tourist spots. Grounds themselves were amidst excellent walking paths.
Cons: Tourist littered grounds on weekend. Need to clean up promptly or set a few waste bins on grounds.
Location: Central to many prime tourist sites both north and south.
We stayed 4 days enjoying the local trails, proximity to Pitlochry and a many prime tourism within a short drive. Hotel and grounds were magnificent.

Lovely hotel close to town centre

Posted 19-Apr-2017
Pros: Ambience and log fires. Leisure facilities.
Cons: price of drinks, could be reduced. No available spa treatments over a 3 night stay.
Location: Lovely outlook and grounds. Nearby Pitlochry, Blair Castle, Queen's View, Killiekrankie and Dunkeld are all worth a visit.
Enjoyed our stay here but thought the drinks were overly expensive. Staff extremely helpful and friendly.

The staff were very good and the hotel has lovely couches where you can sit by a log fire. The restaurant food was good but very over priced particularly if you are vegetarian. 25 pound for a cheese omelette is a lot!

We eight ladies spent a wonderful three days here and enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were friendly and helpful and food and attention to detail was superb. Loved the lounge areas which gave us plenty of seating choices. The bedrooms were pretty, clean and no disturbance from other guests. Can't wait to return.

Golden girls Spring midweek break

Posted 17-Mar-2017 on Hotels
I went with a group of female friends to celebrate one of them's birthday. Stunning setting in highland scenery, polite staff, great food (though a bit pricey so we ate out sometimes). Comfortable seating areas for relaxing with real log fires. My single room (311) was ok but the en suite was very cold with no form of heating such as heated towel rail or even radiator, and the hand basin was tiny - cloakroom size - so small in fact I could hardly get the kettle under the tap to fill it. But the bed was comfortable & the bedding was clean and warm, and the decor was ok though the window was dirty which spoiled the -otherwise attractive - view. I commend the quietness of the corridor doors which did not slam as I feared - I was at the end of a corridor - but had some mechanism which ensured they closed quietly. Some of the other rooms my friends had looked great so I was probably unlucky with the en suite. I would certainly stay again.

Pros: Decor and staff.
My wife and I stayed with my mum for one night recently. The experience was excellent from start to finish. Staff in the restaurant in particular were fantastic in making sure my mum, who was in a wheelchair, was comfortable. I clumsily spilt a full glass of red wine before the food had arrived, and the staff were able to deal with the situation discreetly, getting us another table, and cleaning up without drawing attention to me. I appreciated this, as I was feeling rather embarrassed to say the least. We walked around the grounds, and relaxed in front of the real fires, enjoying the decor and ambience. The best praise I can give is that my mum is still raving about her time spent at The Athill Palace. We will be back.

Lovely grand old hotel

We asked for a special diet dinner and they did a fabulous job- it was one of their main offerings on the night. Lovely fires and atmosphere.

Dirty sheets and a greedy owner

Posted 21-Feb-2017 on Hotels
Checked in 17/02/17 for what should have been 2 nights. On arrival asked for quiet room and given one by the output fans for the kitchen so asked to be moved. New room had a noisy fan in the room above that had been left running causing the ceiling in our room to rattle. Problem rectified by front desk staff. 10.30pm pulled back the bed sheets and found dirty brown marks on duvet along with a blue stain. asked front desk for new bedding but requested by them to move rooms. Third room and a broken toilet seat which I chose to fix as I wasn't going to the front desk again. 18/2/17 time for a morning cuppa and the basin cold tap when turned the whole tap fitting moved unscrewing its self. Duty manager informed of problems and assured problems would be solved and a message left for us. On returning from our day out went to front desk to ask for message and non left but owner of hotel behind desk who asked for a chat. On informing him of all the problems I was told that due to him only getting 2/3 of the room rate I paid he was not willing to help us and we should be happy and I was getting no refund from him, he was also appalled that we had chosen not to eat in his restaurant (the menu didn't inspire us). When I said that the room rate was an issue for him to sort and should not reflect on the stay he chose to throw us out of the hotel at 8pm. This "gent" managed to deprive the rest of the village of my further custom all because of his own greed (he alone wants your cash).

Service at a premium

Posted 17-Feb-2017
During our stay, I had an accident while out shopping and unknowingly had broken my ankle. I was provided with plenty of ice to reduce the swelling and the use of a wheelchair. I could not fault the staff for their attention.
