Reviewed 18 November 2013

When visiting family in the Granite City, we always stay at the Atholl. Just back from another splendid weekend there. Beautiful old silver house, tastefully extended. Great staff, hearty breakfast. Only problem is that we can never get a table for dinner - small dining room, very popular.

Needed a hotel at short notice for meetings in Aberdeen, great choice, warm welcome, lovely room, nice touches with two bottles of water. Nice clean kettle, (a bugbear of mine!). Comfortable bed, all clean and comfy, good pillows, quilt and throw, good shower, although there seemed to be quite a leak on the hose (room 45). Breakfast was excellent, with all the trimmings of a full Scottish breakfast. I did not need to eat all day! Staff all v helpful, especially reception, thanks for a good night sleep, will be back!

I have eaten in the Atholl restaurant on a 2 monthly basis for many years and quite literally have never had a disappointing meal. The Atholl favorites include Scotch broth, mince and skirlie, roast beef etc. which are to die for - good Scottish favourites. They cater for vegetarians, half portions, something a bit different and the usual suspects of staple Scottish cuisine.

A special mention must go to the staff. Gordon the managing partner runs a slick well trained group of staff, most efficient at quick drinks and friendly local chat. This is a very Scottish hotel. Perfect for visitors to the city and perfect for locals.

I do food safety training and Gordon invited me to look in to the kitchen, no notice needed - well ordered and sparkling clean. I wouldn't have expected anything less.

I stayed here for business for a couple of nights, the hotel is in a nice area of Aberdeen, fairly close to the airport, approx 5-10 mins in the taxi.
The staff were very helpful as I had some requests prior to my arrival, which were taken care of in advance.
Hotel and rooms were very clean, as evident by the large number of room attendands I saw working throughout the hotel in the morning.
Food was good quality and decent portions. I would use this hotel again in future.

Going to a golden wedding celebration at the hotel.

Arrived at 2.30pm and enquired about food. They could not have been more obliging. Charming staff and excellent service.

The wedding celebration went like clockwork, Food good and so was attention.

Breakfast next morning pretty good. Fried egg rather poached in fat but all British hotels seem to have this problem. The States do it so well but the UK has still to wake up.

Would definitely recommend this place. Price was much less than an inferior apartment the night before.

I stayed here for one night, for a business trip. There was a mix up with the booking, from my companies side and the receptionist (Rachael) was really helpful and understanding. The hotel itself is lovely and the food great. Every member of staff i dealt with went to great lengths to ensure my stay was comfortable and the aforementioned problem was dealt with very efficiently.
