We had pre-booked many weeks in advance as part of a wedding party. However, on the day we were informed that the room that we had arranged was not available and that we were to be out into one of the lodges around the hotel. The lodge was about 100 metres up an unlit, rough track - particularly unsuitable for...

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.

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
