A beautiful building with excellent grounds sitting above Pitlochry. The hotel sits on the edge of Pitlochry but is within easy walking distance to the town, as long as you can manage the hill on the way back. We found the hotel very relaxing with a very large lounge area with log fires. The room was comfortable but we found... More

I will upload pictures soon, but we went to the Atholl Palace for only one night last week and it was filthy, we used to go all the time but changed to MacDonalds Resort in Aviemore a few years ago due to Atholl Palace being dirty at that time but we decided to give them another go as we only...

We have been coming to The Atholl Palace for several years, in part sentiment brings us back here but, that aside, it is a charming hotel with a touch of the old school about it. The rooms are a decent size and clean, there is a spa with pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna (though I note this was out... More

Just returned from a two night stay at the Atholl Palace. This hotel is so elegant both inside and out and you really feel you are somewhere special. On the ground floor there are so many comfortable seating areas with lovely coal fires, you will never struggle to find a cosy corner. The gardens are beautiful and ideal for a... More

I stayed for 3 nights in this beautiful hotel recently. My Room was very clean and comfortable and beautifully decorated and food in the restaurant was top class. The staff were all very professional and friendly and the friendly owner circulated among the guests to welcome each and every one. Pitlochry is a lovely quaint little village. I wouldn't hesitate...

Second visit for a Christmas party night and much improved on 2011. Rooms seemed less tired and the food and service at the meal were also noticably improved. Room was warm and clean. Building itself is stunning and the views from the dining room amazing. Huge open fires in hallway and sofas to lounge around on. Walks from the door,... More

This hotel is warm, comfortable, good food and beautiful grounds and surrounding countryside. The food was very good and so was the service. The staff were helpful. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was lovely with a bath and shower.

Regrettably not an experience to be repeated. The Leisure suite, while clean and functional is in need of a makeover in most areas. At £20/ head my wife and I thought this would be an excellent way to escape the unseasonally late snow showers but the outcome fell week short of expectation. On leaving the pool we quickly realised there... More

Great place! Grand old building, very relaxing atmosphere and extremely helpful and friendly staff! Hope to be back. Great base to explore the highlands. Hillwalking, golf, fishing , sight-seeing, all catered for. Got a slightly cheaper deal booking on the day of travel. Would recommend it highly to couples, families, outdoor enthusiasts.
