Visited here with elderly parents. We wanted a traditional Sunday lunch in warm surroundings, and certainly found it. We ate in the bar - informal and busy, but very pleasant (we came back 3 days later with friends). The food was well cooked, but I wondered if the roast beef had been pre-cooked, sliced and warmed up with the gravy on the plate... nice vegetables. If I come again, I'll probably not have the roast beef. Bit disappointing. Visit here if plain pub grub is what you like. Reminds me of eating out 20 years ago.

My boyfriend stays here every time he is on business and loves this hotel. Good praise indeed since he worked at a senior position in one of the top UK hotel chains. I have to say, when I rang up to request breakfast for him one money to be delivered to his room (as a special treat, as I know exactly how he likes his breakfast), the hotel receptionist was so accommodating. The staff at the hotel are lovely and they did this without any fuss. I am just so impressed by this hotel so if you are thinking of staying in Aberdeen on business or pleasure I think you should pick this hotel above any others and know you are in safe hands.

I live right across the road from the Atholl so we go here quite alot. The food is absolutely fantastic - cannot fault it. There's always a good special of the day and the menu is varied so there is something for everyone. Portions are good and I'd recommend the beef olives!! I have never ever come away from here hungry.
If you are coming at the weekend you should definitley book as it gets very busy. We tend to go on a week night and it's normally okay to just walk in and get a table. You can dine i the bar or there is a dining area also which is good.
Staff are all very nice and attentive.
Can be a wee bit on the expensive side, although not hugely but it's not a cheap place. But the surrondings and the food definitley make it worthwhile.

This was our annual Christmas jaunt.
We had a separate room above the main restaurant.
The place was very busy when we arrived at 7pm, car park nearly full and the restaurant and bar almost at capacity
We had a set meal which was preordered and we had place cards on our tables,with our menu choice preprinted. Which makes one wonder why we had to use a soup spoon for the rather odd starter. The choice had been soup, soup or fan of melon. The melon description was interesting and Ive had the soups before so I gave it a try. It was peculiar. I think it belonged more to the pudding range than starter. The melon itself was ok, but it was served with this sort of creamy sorbet, sort of rasberry coloured,but lacking any flavour, and some berries.Odd.
For the main course I chose salmon with a veloute sauce. It was quite good, the salmon nicely cooked and lots of nicely done veg.
I now have to leave my usual review style of the Atholl, and say the pudding was a DREAM. Baileys mousse served in this deep dark chocolate cup. Distinctly more-ish.

The red wine Im afraid left a lot to be desired, and I didnt test the white or rose.
The maitre d' was most attentive, and the bar staff friendly.

Have to criticise the ladies loos though. Surely on a busy night such as this somebody should check to make sure that there is sufficient toilet roll!

Given that this is a busy time of year, when most hotels offer a sort of standard meal without a great deal of flourish, I suppose I have to say that it probably is fairly average for Aberdeen at this time of year!

Booked for our girls pre-Christmas lunch for the 3rd year running and was not disappointed! Food was lovely yet again with good portion sizes, great service and very nice staff. After lunch we sat in the bar with our tab running all day into the night as the regulars and other guests arrived for dinner. Staff looked after us extremely well without intruding in our conversation. Highly recommend for the food and nice atmosphere. Will be back again next year!!
