Stayed here for one night on business based on a recommendation from a local colleague. The Atholl is a medium sized family run hotel up the hill on the west side of the city centre. It's location was particularly suitable for me as I was visiting the Royal Infirmary nearby. It was a Sunday night and I couldn't believe how... More

The Atholl is a locals favourite bar and restaurant. Having spent years in Aberdeen's hotels, I can vouch that the Atholl is without doubt the best run with the most attentive professional staff. The food is good wholesome unpretentious and good value. That said the fish and chips is the best I've had our seen in any hotel here. Highly... More

We used the Atholl Hotel to host our University Reunion Weekend with a number staying at the hotel all weekend and a dinner for 30 on the Saturday evening and farewell lunch on the Sunday. All the feedback we got from those who attended was very positive. The staff were very helpful, the food was excellent and the rooms both... More

We stayed at the Atholl Hotel for one night en route to our honeymoon destination. We had aimed to get there at about 9pm but due to flight delays and awful weather we didn't arrive until nearly midnight, but this was no trouble at all as the hotel has a night porter and 24 hour reception. The staff throughout our... More

For just one night we stayed in this lovely hotel on a hill above Aberdeen. The room was lovely, beautifully furnished with good clean bathroom and all the necessary little extras such as shampoo etc. One could walk down to the city centre or drive. Reception staff told us about the unique area called Footdee and explained how to find... More

The Atholl hotel has a superb traditional vibe. I am reviewing the restaurant and have not stayed in the hotel. I have been for a meal here several times and the food quality and service have never been anything short of excellent. A good selection of food and drinks with a focus on traditional meals such as the roast beef.... More

Stayed at the Altholl Hotel for a family event. The room was spacious & clean but a bit dark due to the very small window with no outlook. The food at the event was exceptional & the breakfast good quality. Average price for a city hotel.

Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Having stayed there from the Friday to the Sunday I can verify that all the staff are excellent, bar none. They take a pride in their work and go the extra mile to be of help. The food was very good. Thank you, Chef. Our room was large with views across the city and... More

I stayed at this place which was booked for me by work. The reservation had been lost (apparently it turned up later) but work contacted them and sorted it all out in minutes, the reception staff were very pleasant and efficient in getting me a room. My room number 46 was very dark and I needed the light on all... More

Spent one night here and would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Friendly, helpful staff from the word go. I had booked a single room and was a little disappointed to find it was quite dark inside as the window faced on to another external wall about 10 feet away. However, that was my only grumble. The "single" bed was more like... More
