This time it's a wee bit ................................. amazing!
Booked a single like last time and they've put me in a double - brilliant meal and service tonight, they can't look after you enough.
Short and sweet this time..... when in Aberdeen, go to the Atholl for a great welcome, good service, nice room and smashing people. Free broadband in rooms and wifi in the lounge
Not much more to say!

My wife and I stayed one night as we continued the tour of Scotland. The place was fine. Clean. Great room 14. Service was just sterile in the pub dinning room and breakfast. For the money you can likley find a better place.

Visited here tonight for some dinner after reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor.

Beautiful looking building in a affluent area of Aberdeen in the west end. Ample parking around the back of the hotel which is often an issue in Aberdeen.

The bar restaurant is modern and looks very modern - there is also a nice seating area to the front of the hotel which would be good in the summertime.

The food was good - not out of this world just honest pub grub. I had the deep fried haddock which came with chips and peas and my wife had pork and black pudding with a peppercorn sauce. Both dishes were very good and no complaints with the food. Sticky toffee pudding shared for desert which was again very good.

2 main courses + 1 desert + 4 cans of juice = £40. Not a bargain but not a rip off either so again no complaints with the price either.

The staff were friendly and well-mannered and overall it was a good experience.

Situated in a quiet street with well maintained gardens & ample parking , the hotel is a traditional building that has been well maintained & updated throughout. It is also within walking distance of the shops on Union Street (about 20-30 minutes) although there are buses nearby.
Our room ( an executive double) was not particularly large but had everything needed for a comfortable stay, although the bathrobes may take some finding – ours were tucked up in a drawer – locating them near the bathroom may have been more sensible.
Beds are comfy standard doubles and rooms have ample storage . Our bathroom was small but had been recently upgraded & had a bath & overbath shower. Some rooms have showers only & from what we could see bathrooms varied in size.
Housekeeping standards throughout were very high & both rooms & public areas were well decorated with some contemporary touches.
Breakfasts were excellent – a good choice of hot dishes & the usual fruit juices, cereals etc, although those requiring a continental type breakfast may have a more limited choice.
Service was prompt and polite & staff throughout were charming.

We would stay here again

I am very fond of the Atholl, and usually stay there when I am up in Aberdeen. Recently, however, the quality of the evening meals has deterioated. The fare is very ordinary (fish & chips, mince & skirlie, scampi & chips, Atholl currie, etc), and not particularly tasty. My food always arrived with lightning speed (no complaints there), but there is no serious cooking happening in the kitchen. Certainly no reason to order a bottle of wine!!
The bar is nice (real ales, etc), and the breakfasts are good (B&B for £100!), but I would recommend that you book elsewhere for evening meal.

This is a lovely hotel - very pleasant staff, good food and very nice bedrooms. Free internet access on hotel computer and wired internet in rooms with free wi-fi in communal areas. I would highly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to return there. You won't be disappointed. Also excellent car parking facilities and public transport into town if required, though very walkable, practically on the doorstep.
