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.

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.

Dated hotel

Posted 10-Feb-2017
The quality of the hotel was not as expected. Both steam room and spa were broken for our while visit and the room had no hot water. Not ideal for a spa weekend

Lovely Victorian hotel in Pitlochry town

Posted 09-Feb-2017
Pros: Great location, Spa and pool facility most welcome. Good food and choices. This is a relaxing hotel; staff most welcoming and attentive at all times.
Cons: Large hotel needs a little tender upgrading, but this does not detract from the overall high quality of the hotel and the amenities.
Location: Central location for exploring Perthshire and Central Scotland; great countryside with lots to do and see.
This is a stylish grand scale hotel with large public spaces, gardens and generous grounds. Great situation with good views over Perthshire countryside. Built last century, there is a quality and comfort level not found in modern hotels. We loved the roaring fires and relaxing atmosphere. Public rooms were very generous in scale and size. No noisy music to spoil conversations.

Fantastic hotel and grounds, disappointing rooms

Posted 13-Jan-2017
Stayed here for a friends wedding recently for two nights. The hotel itself is fantastic, with amazing grounds where you can spend hours walking around with some fantastic scenery. The staff were friendly, the Stags Head bar was good with a decent range of drinks, especially if you like whisky. We had a good stay but our only bad point, especially considering the price we paid, was our hotel room. It was very small and dated. There were two plug sockets that were literally hanging by the wires on the wall. Shower was good though! Its not a cheap place to stay by any stretch and for the price we paid for the room we expected quite a bit more.
