Special occasion so we booked the Edradour Suite (turret, 2 level). Absolutely wonderful room. Two levels with an upper turret sitting area. Restaurant was very nice. The location is beautiful with lovely walking trails around and very close to many sightseeing locations. Staff were very accommodating and helpful - special request was tended to efficiently and greatly appreciated.

I was at the Atholl Palace for a week-long conference at the end of August, 2015 and my wife was tagging along to visit with friends. It was a very enjoyable time. The main hotel is in a refurbished castle. While we were there, there were lots of tour groups coming through for 1 night at a time, so it...

The Palace was well managed, comfortable and in a beautiful setting. Nice place! The rooms were furnished like they were in times past - with beautiful antiques. The restaurant and waiting areas were exquisite.

Visited in 2013 with my family and felt like a princess. Food and service was exceptional, views were unlike any I have seen before. The grounds are stunning to explore, easy to get lost in. The rooms were like palaces and I was very impressed.

Pretty simple. Great facade but the rooms are small and in need of remodeling. Bathroom has small sink and only one light which is turned on by a pull cord. Carpet stains and chipped tub don't added to the ambience. Having said that the food dinners are excellent and the breakfast was above average. Service was attentive.

Originally opened as the Athole Hydropathic in Victorian times, the hotel retains many features of the traditional large country house, with bedroom facilities and standards which often exceed expectations and complement spacious, relaxing public areas.With 107 bedrooms, self-catering lodges, apartments and 10 function suites we can cater for your needs whether it is leisure or business purposes. ... more   less
