“FantasticM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We recently came over from New Zealand to get married in my home town of Aberdeen. We held our wedding at the Atholl Hotel and chose it because we wanted a small personal family affair. The Atholl were absolutely amazing from the start and I cannot thank them enough for helping make my day perfect. A special thanks to Beth for all the pre-wedding planning and a big thank you to Graeme who was the Manager overseeing on the day. They were both brilliant. Many of my guests commented on how fab Graeme was. We stayed a week at the Atholl and enjoyed it very much. The room was great, the food awesome and the staff very friendly and helpful, For a down to earth, traditional Scottish hotel, you can't get much better than this. Highly recommend.

This was a beautiful hotel. The accommodations were very comfortable and clean. They have a good restaurant. You get breakfast with your stay. They bar/restaurant area was quite nice and we had dinner there both nights we stayed. The manager was wonderful and made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

The Atholl Hotel, Aberdeen, Scotland is without a doubt one of the best hotels (with a cooked to order breakfast) we have ever stayed at. The bar, the restaurant, the service, the room and everything else was perfect. It's in a very quiet neighborhood right on a city bus route. Hope we can stay there again.

Warm welcome upon arrival. Receptionist very helpful supplying us with a map and directions of how to walk into the city centre. Hotel is in a lovely part of the city. The building is built of granite and it looked beautiful on the second day of our visit with blue skies and sunshine! Rooms are clean and comfortable, the quilt only just fitted the bed. This was the only negative comment as it did interfere with the quality of sleep. Good choice at breakfast from the buffet table which included local produce along with various cooked options. Would definitely stay again.

Staying at this hotel is like staying at a friend's house. The staff are the stars - they can't be nicer or more willing to make you comfortable. Rooms are very nice and restaurant meals are very good. We like the location away from the bustle of the city but close to the center and easy to get on the main roads. We stayed here several years ago and will definitely stay here again if we have chance to return to Aberdeen.
