I surprised my girlfriend by booking tickets for the Enchanted Forrest and booked the Atholl Palace, she had no idea. As we were driving into Pitlochry you could see it on the hillside and she said, "Look at that, it's like something out of a fairy tale!". When we pulled up outside it she was over the moon! Facilities are...

Visited the Atholl Palace earlier this month for long weekend reunion with family. Stayed in one of the lodges on the estate. Really comfortable, all the facilities you need for a bit of self catering although we had meals at the hotel. The hotel was wonderful. Restaurant food and views fabulous - very highly recommended. Very busy the weekend we...

Beautiful Building with lovely gardens and views. Unfortunately, the rooms are very small and furnishings tired and Shabby. The staff however are extremely friendly and the breakfast good. Location is good, however if you are visiting without a car, the walk uphill to the hotel can be quite challenging. I have stayed at better value accommodation in pitlochry and would...

We decided to stay here again after a wonderful experience several years ago. The hotel itself and the grounds are amazing and the town is quaint and fun. The hotel is a moderate walk from town, so my mid 80 year old parents needed a ride to get to town, but I enjoy walking and found the walk to be...

We have stayed here more times than I can count. My husband has stayed here for over 20 years since he was a child and we got married here in 2008 so it will always have a special place in our hearts. The grounds are beautiful, cannot rate it highly enough.

Was a bit dubious about booking this hotel after reading other reviews but was very pleasantly surprised. Beautiful location and great service. We booked a valley view which was well worth the price. Couldn't stop looking out of the window! The grounds are beautiful. Wish we had more time to explore this amazing place! Will be back.

The first rule of hotel accommodation... is cleanliness and comfort. The Atholl Palace is an astounding hotel in its presentation and grandeur. This has all the hallmarks of a five star venue with its olde-world charm and feel. There are a number of factors which dilute this rating significantly and these things need to be rectified to increase its standing....

The Atholl Palace Hotel, the epitome of Scottish Baronial splendour, stands overlooking wooded parkland grounds and the town to the surrounding hills. 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 so leisure or business purposes. ... more   less
