enjoyed a very nice meal both had the buchan chicken and found it perfect and very filling so much so that could not manage the sweet.Nice atmosphere and very pleasant staff.Saw other meals being served they also looked delicious. Great menu and choice have visited before and see no reason why we will not return in the near future.

Thank you for your lovely review. Our Roast Buchan Chicken is one of the Atholl favourites, so it is a very popular dish with us. I will pass onto the kitchen and restaurant team's your kind comments and I hope we will have the pleasure of your company in the future. Regards Gaynor Priest More

Let's start with the positives. The rooms are clean and roomy, the staff are friendly and welcoming and the whole place feels comfortable. But, it could be so much better. Breakfast is straight from the 1970s with poor coffee, boring fruit and stale pastries. Evening meals do not really extend beyond steak and chips. The internal wifi is so slow... More

On a recent golfing trip to Scotland with 8 guys (all eligible for the Senior Tour) we set up base camp in the Atholl Hotel in Aberdeen. Located in the leafy suburbs of Aberdeen about a 30 minute (if you take the route we took) to the town centre; the hotel was absolutely perfect for us. The staff couldn't have... More

The service was excellent. Breakfast was included and it was wonderful. Anything you needed help with they were ready to help. The rooms were lovely. Can't say enough about this place. Very quaint sits on a little hill in a lovely neighborhood. Also had a great dinner menu if you wanted to stay in for the night.

My parents had their wedding reception here almost 40 years ago. 40 years later I return with my wife and Aunty, having not set foot in Aberdeen for nearly 20 years.

Very quaint hotel. Bed was super comfortable, had nice amenities, and the staff were all very friendly. We had to leave very early, and so missed the breakfast. Two small negatives: the lift only goes to the 1st floor, so rooms on higher floors require stairs (the staff did offer to help with the bags, though). Also, the location is... More

Great stay for business. Room and hotel throughout was immaculate. Large modern bathroom. Food very good with a wide choice and cooked breakfast of your choice freshly made and not lying under a hot plate. Would recommend.
