I stayed here during a wedding weekend and have to say the grounds were lovely. I was highly disappointed with the water supply to the shower and television not working. The breakfast was nice however was far to busy and service was non existent. I won't be staying here again and won't be recommending it to anyone.

It would be a mistake to stay at this magnificent old hotel that commands the scenery above Pitlochry and expect more than what it has to offer. This includes a relaxed and laid back atmosphere, a rich history, indoor spa area with the best complex of pools I've enjoyed in a hotel and beautiful grounds with a pleasant 9 hole... More

I can't comment too much on the hotel itself except first impressions - beautiful big building from the outside which could be amazing with some serious investment and updating. We only really saw the large lobby area and the way down to the spa so I don't know what the rooms are like. We came across some fairly interesting carpets... More

If you are expecting a modern international hotel then you will be disappointed. The Atholl Palace Hotel is one of those grand British provincial hotels, 150 years old, with all that that entails. The floors creak, the doors have keys (yes keys - not plastic swipe cards that only work when they feel like it), the public rooms are grand... More

12 of us had a weekend long celebration of my Mum's 80th Birthday at the Atholl Palace. They couldn't do enough to help and they made us all feel welcome and my Mum feel very special indeed. The manager remained calm even when we accidentally set off the general fire alarm with the use of overly energetic candles on the... More

we booked for lunch on Sun. the menu was lovely and very well priced £18 95 for 3 courses- and a nice choice. frist course served very quickly, then we waited almost 45 mins. for our main plates to be cleared and our dessert served- by then there only seemed to be one waiter serving the whole dining area.

Was sorry to note you would not return to our hotel. I note you enjoyed the setting and the general visit however I do apologise the service in the restaurant was found to be lacking. There was indeed more than one team member on duty but we were taken on the hop with the number of customers dining on that... More

Treated my now fiancé to a relaxing spa day and we were not disappointed with what we got. Simply excellent! The pool was shut due to having a leak but we understand that these things can happen and this did not bother us as we both agreed that our treatments more than made up for this. Staff were excellent both... More
