I arrived at this hotel on a clear but very cold Aberdeen afternoon. I was warmly welcomed at the reception by a friendly and professional receptionist who made checking in easy and who was informative about the hotel facilities. The room was very comfortable with nice touches, for example bottled spring water, and was spotlesly clean. I decided to have... More

Very good evening meal in traditional, unpretentious surroundings. Friendly service, convenient location with plenteous car parking. Recommended - I'd certainly happily return at some point in the future.

Have used this hotel on many occasions over last ten years. Am always surprised at the level of use by local people for family functions. Good accommodation for visitors with free wifi throughout hotel. Computer and printer for checking in to airlilines and getting boarding passes. Nice full Scottish breakfast.

I dined at the Atholl Hotel this afternoon. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was lovely. I ordered tea which was presented nicely, with lovely crockery and some fudge and chocolates. I would recommend this venue as a place to catch up with friends or family.
