Stayed overnight on the 19th November, we went for a DBB deal. On entering the hotel we were met by the receptionist who was very helpful, friendly and informative. She not only gave us her undivided attention but went out of her way to make a fuss of our boxer dog, who loved the attention. We were shown up to... More

Small friendly hotel situated in centre of one of Perthshire's prettiest villages, within walking distance of shops and restaurants (we ate in the Atholl's Meeting Place Bistro and enjoyed their customary excellent quality & presentation of food, all be it on a slightly limited choice menu - so no need to go further afield for food) We have made several...

I had checked the reviews and some were mixed so a wee bit apprehensive and I was unsure what to expect when we arrived.

We spent time at the Atholl Arms during the recent Autumn Festival in Dunkeld and enjoyed a very pleasant lunch here. The lounge bar area is extensive and welcoming with very comfortable seating. Service was friendly and fairly prompt despite the fact that the hotel was exceedingly busy because of the festival going on in town. The tomato soup with... More

Even though I booked well in advance 5 months, we were given a top floor back room. I booked a double and got a twin. The room was small grubby needs a refurbish.

Booked on a 1 night DBB deal. We were made very welcome on arrival. Room was very comfortable with all usual amenities - en suite was huge! They had had a problem with kitchen equipment but this was sorted out in time for our evening meal in the Bistro. Despite being on a 'budget deal' the 2 course meal was... More
