Will start with the positives: Lovely pool area, great location, looks wonderful from the outside Negatives: there are many.... We stayed in the self catering lodge which were a little tired and shabby. Oven knobs were broken, one of the ceiling...

Arrived here on Monday 25th for 2 days with our little girl who is on a special diet. After a lot of planning leading up to our arrival, regarding bringing our own food for our little girl to be cooked/stored, we were greeted with such high standard of care, there was no need for us to worry at all.

My wife and I had a champagne 2-course lunch "deal" arranged through a third party. The Atholl Palace's building, location and views are outstanding, arguably the most impressive building in Highland Perthshire. We got off to a bad start. My wife produced the voucher and the girl at the reception stand said "Afternoon tea?" Something had gone wrong - no...

We enjoyed the champagne lunch here last week. We were impressed by the ambience and prompt service. There was a good selection on the menu, we had potted smoked salmon with oatcakes, and duck compote for starters, then smoked salmon Caesar salad and Cajun chicken breast with salad and chips for main. Dessert was a very nice lemon tart with...

Had a great time at the Atholl Palace, spotlessly clean, super efficient staff, beautiful features inside from the 19th century, great views, great food, and so on in a word SUPERB! You get what you pay for, if your disappointed in this hotel you must be a grump and don't deserve to be here.

Stayed Easter weekend for my sister’s hen, 11 ladies who were looking for a relaxing spa weekend. What can I say the hotel is lovely, it is old but that’s what we like the old log fires with the large comfy sofas all around reception. Checked in to our rooms, which were spacious and clean. Headed down for dinner, and...

My family of six stayed here in two family rooms whilst traveling through Scotland . The hotel has great historical charm and I found out rooms to be updated, very clean and charming. Unlike some older hotels that are often tired and worn Atholl Palace was very modern. Breakfast was fine and the views from the dining room were heavenly....

Originally opened as the Athole Hydropathic in Victorian times, the hotel retains many features of the traditional large country house, with bedroom facilities and standards which often exceed expectations and complement spacious, relaxing public areas.With 107 bedrooms, self-catering lodges, apartments and 10 function suites we can cater for your needs whether it is leisure or business purposes. ... more   less
