Six of us have a excellent lunch in the Atholl, friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable dinning room, and reception area. Dogs are allowed which is a plus for us. Dunkeld is a pleasant little town with lovely walks along the river and the Cathedral is worth a visit.

Staff were great, breakfast excellent (lovely local smoked salmon), good parking, spotty wifi, easy access to A9, bar had excellent local beers on tap, restaurant food also very good (veggie burgers were a highlight). We were there for the Ryder Cup so paid very high room rates but we would visit Dunkeld and stay at the Atholl Arms again.

A recent visit to this stunning part of Scotland - we stayed 4 nights here. Top prices charged for a poor standard of bedroom. Staff efficient and smiling in the main, but all the furniture is outdated and in need of major refurbishment. Thin towels, lino on the bathroom floor, no mixer taps (which dispensed two temperatures - scalding and... More

We booked our wedding reception at the Atholl Arms, we had the restaurant to ourselves for the evening. Cami was wonderful in helping us plan our special day. We had chosen the menu ourselves and all guests commented on how delicious the food was, and that it was all served piping hot (not usually the case when a large number... More

Lovely location and views.The staff were very pleasant.However our room that was classed as superior could be improved.The view was lovely but furnishings and bathroom not very good. Although it is important to keep originality and charm it does need a revamp in my opinion , particularly in the lounge. The breakfast was good.The evening menu was very limited and... More

Due to a last minute decision we booked a standard room at the Atholl Arms 2 days before arrival. We arrived at 12pm hoping to check in knowing this actually wasn't until 3pm. We were told the room would be ready by 2pm though. We arrived back at 2pm and were greeted by Veronica who told us we had been... More

We had a beautiful room on the 2nd floor, overlooking the river, and it was just what we wanted. I loved the decor, as the rooms have obviously been recently refurbished, but in a way that was very in keeping with the traditional feel of the hotel. The staff were lovely, and the breakfast -oh my! The best scrambled eggs... More
