We were introduced to the Atholl Arms Hotel through Hotel Connections, and have to say, we were both delighted we were.
We spent 2 nights here that passed way to quickly.
we were met by a male at the reception who was happy to answer any questions and show us to our room.
Although very apparent that it is an older hotel, equally so is the fact that the owners are modernising it and tastefully so.
Our room didn't have a great view , however, they can't all have and this was compensated by the size of it, comfortable, clean bed and one of the largest sunken bathrooms I have ever been in.
I am compelled to mention our waitress 'Sam'. First class service, friendly knowledgable and great people skills. I was pleasantly surprised to hear she had only been a member of staff for a short time...well done you !
The service was equalled only be amazing food served.
Good choice on menu and all so fresh.
My partner had the best steak, and I must recommend you try the Dunkeld smoked salmon, whether its the starter menu or with fresh eggs at breakfast.
A particular favourite of mine, this was second to none.
There is a lovely welcoming fire in the lounge which seems to host local musicians on a Friday. They made us very welcome and added to the fun and friendly ambience.
The hotel is well situated adjacent to the River Tay with lovely walks, beautiful scenery and local shops on the doorstep.
On the occasion we had to question part of our bill, this was dealt with promptly, by staff who were happy to help and appologised for any error. Can't say fairer than that.
We will definitely be returning here.
Thank you to all the staff who looked after us, we had the best weekend.

We continue to make improvements throughout the year making the garden priority this summer with a new wall, fence and gravel in the parking area. Looking forward to having some music sessions outside if the weather permits.
