Room was about the level of 2.5 stars hotel. Room were clean but very dated, small and dark. Bathroom from another century. The reception Staff was very nice and the night Bartender/security was the nicest person, very knowledgeable of his culture and was eager to share it and discuss it with us, he gave us a great service. The architecture... More

Although we had not planned to stay in Aberdeen on our trip to Scotland, my father had a heart attack, and we chose the Atholl because it was within walking distance of Royal Aberdeen Infirmary. As Americans, we were floored at the compassion of everyone on the staff from the waitresses to the managers. The rooms were always clean and... More

Helpful friendly service, clean rooms with nice amenities,great location and easy off street parking, very popular restaurant with the locals. And we dined there happily 3 nights. We (my 79yo mum and I ) where able to go for enjoyable strolls around the location and almost walked all the way into the main city.

It is exactly the place Like hotel should not be. Unprofessional irritating personnel, hotel restaurant not accepting client as at 21:10, small and uncomfortable rooms. Interiors like corridors old and require thorough modernisation. The worst was leaving hotel at 5:00 to the airport. I paid my bill in the evening as explained that in the morning I will not have...

Nice traditional Scottish hotel with popular restaurant and inside a fantastic looking building. Rooms are comfy with Scottish tartan accents. Location is handy for town and the west end and there is parking spaces for guests. Staff are all lovely and polite though there is often a lot of school leavers who seem young and unsure but quick to learn.... More

Recently had lunch in the restaurant with friends. Lunch was on a really nice table which was on a well lit table in an airy spot. There is no loud music in the restaurant and it really good for speaking with friends. The menu was really varied, although I must say was really poor on vegetarian options, my friend had... More

Whenever I go to Aberdeen, the Atholl is our hotel of choice. Friendly, attentive staff, great welcome. Very helpful (I asked to leave my bag early in the day with them and it was no trouble). Restaurant has a good variety of choices - I recommend the stuffed peppers for a light, tasty main meal. Most rooms are to the... More

The staff was incredibly friendly, but with a 4.5 star rating we were expecting much more. The rooms are similar to a Best Western and the food is awful. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly but this is 3 star hotel, no idea why users have given it 4.5 stars.

Stayed at the Atholl many times and every time has been a pleasure. The staff are great with special mention for Julie in reception. Very welcoming hotel, always immaculate and the food is always tip top. Great to have a quality hotel look after you after a hard days work.

This hotel was much bigger than it appears online. There are actually a lot of rooms and a maze of hallways to find where you are staying. Facecloths are provided, which is nice. This hotel also provides shampoo and conditioner and hand soap. Unfortunately, the bathrooms do not have a bathroom fan. This is really awkward for couples and when... More
