“Impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

I've been to many hotels and this one impressed me. Its a traditional hotel with a great focus on the customer. It may not suit all tastes (it features lots of wood and tartan) but its very comfortably furnished and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The room I stayed in was large with an enormous bed. The shower room was spotless and featured a good power shower. I loved the little touches in the room like the Highland Spring mineral water, iron & ironing board within the wardrobe, sewing kit etc plus access to free wifi and a good range of TV stations including SKY sports. There's also parking available within the hotel grounds. We arrived back too late to try out the dinner menu, but staff very helpfully arranged for late night soup and sandwiches which were very much welcomed. The food was all very good, including the choice of continental or traditional cooked breakfast. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to business or tourist customers.

Celebrated a golden wedding with a private dinner for 30. We were well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are well finished and clean. The beds are a bit low and rooms a bit on the hot side but it is summer even in Aberdeen! If I were to find fault it would be breakfast poached eggs not as requested and sausages not very nice. Would certainly return

Friendly, helpful, efficient staff; quality of service was really excellent. Very well refurbished bedrooms. Two large attractive private function rooms available. Restaurant already fully booked so we ate in the bar which was fine: same good food and wine and relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast excellent (the Full Atholl) apart from poor quality tea and juice (from concentrate?) Clipper tea is available at the self-service section - much better. Would stay again with pleasure.

My wife and I have stayed in the Atholl four or five times now and have always enjoyed the experience. Our most recent visit on 20 June was no different. Our room (34) was a good size, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was ample and served by cheery, helpful, and obviously local staff. The only issue which arose was that we had booked dinner in the restaurant and when we turned up we found the place absolutely packed out. We were squashed in between a table of about a dozen women all slugging the vino, taking selfies and talking at the pitch of their voices and another table with six or eight people equally intent on having a "good time". It was my wife's birthday and we wanted a quiet romantic meal for the two of us. We couldn't hear ourselves above the din so we elected not to stay and ended up having to make our way into the city centre to get something to eat. This wasn't directly the hotel's fault but anybody who is thinking of eating in the restaurant should be aware that it can get very busy and noisy and you might be better to look elsewhere for that romantic tete-a-tete.

We spent one night here. We hadn't booked and there weren't many rooms left. We were given a room in the modern wing at the back. It looked onto the car park and there was no lift so it was a bit of a long trek with our cases. The room was fine and breakfast was the usual Scottish fry-up with cereals and toast - perfectly adequate, if a little unadventurous. Service at reception was good - we were quoted the standard price for the room but, when asked, they were willing to drop it, albeit a little reluctantly, to the internet price.
