My wife and I stayed here for three nights whilst visiting an Aunt to celebrate a 90th birthday celebration locally. Beautiful old hotel in a stunning setting with friendly staff and good food. Comfortable, good sized double room at the front, with a large modern en suite. Nice whisky liqueur offered on arrival, so much so we bought a bottle... More

Stayed for 1 night to visit the Atholl Highland Games. The hotel is very grand, and impressive. The room was a little basic, and slightly dated (not with antiquities, just slightly old furnishings). However it was comfortable and clean with an adequate en suite and stunning views. The location and setting for the hotel is fantastic and the restaurant at... More

A wonderful, grand historical hotel with friendly, helpful staff and REALLY good food. My teenage sons enjoyed the facilities, tennis, swimming, billiards, pool, putting and we all enjoyed the peace and calm and superb views. Try a turret suite - the views are out of this world. Nothing quite like it! Pitlochry is a busy town in summer and has... More

Have just returned from a lovely break at the Athol Palace Hotel it was lovely. We were a group of nine ranging from seven to fifty five and everyone had a lovely time. I don't think I have ever been in such a posh hotel that was so child friendly. There were three children two aged seven and one aged... More

Stayed a couple of nights in the Bothy lodge within the grounds of the hotel. The lodge was comfortable but slightly tired and outdated. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment and was modern. The four poster bed was welcoming. The grounds of the hotel were lovely and had lovely riverside walks. We popped up to the hotel for drinks... More

Should have been suspicious due to the mixed reviews. But the pictures looked really good and I generally do like such old Palace hotels. And the pictures aren't wrong. The hotel is nice. A small old Scotish castle on top of a hill. Impressive view when you approach the place. The lobby and restaurant area are very nice too. Old,... More

Before last week, I last visited the Atholl Palace 5 years ago. Considering how much potential there is for change in that time (and also that I thought it was absolutely perfect before), I was a little apprehensive about this stay, especially after reading some of the recent reviews for it! However, as soon as we got the first glimpse... More

We had a quite nice visit at this hotel, which while seemingly isolated is an easy 15-minute walk into Pitlochry. The grounds are lovely, and the hotel itself is quite nice, if a bit tired in areas. It could use a bit of a sprucing up, but our room was very clean and comfortable (most of us had single beds,... More

The Atholl Palace Hotel, the epitome of Scottish Baronial splendour, stands overlooking wooded parkland grounds and the town to the surrounding hills. 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 so leisure or business purposes. ... more   less
