Was really pleased to have booked a 2 night Spa Break here for myself and my husband to celebrate both his big 5.0 and our Wedding Anniversary. You could not ask for better surroundings or a grander building. It was so peaceful and views were stunning. The hotel sits majestically in acres of grounds further heightening the "get away from it all" feel we wanted. Check in was quick and courteous and our room was ready well before stated checkin time. We were given a Feature Room on first floor with robes/slippers supplied. It had wall mounted flatscreen tv, tea/coffee/kettle etc, hairdryer, lovely feature bed and a large bathroom. Very cosy! There are tennis courts, pitch/putt, putting green and a basement Museum which we found very interesting, free to guests and a small charge for visitors. Our package included dinner and breakfast and also afternoon tea for 1 of the days.The food was fine and service polite, we were allowed 3 courses with coffee on the table d'hote menu and you could pay extra for anything else outwith this on the menu.
The Stagshead bar was comfortable for pre dinner drinks and they also served bar meals. You can take your coffees in the extensive lounges near the dining room. At this time of year, the log fires were lit which was nice.Our Spa experience was FAB, the 2 girls were superb, we had hot lava shell massages and full facials each, then relaxed in the room provided with herbal teas etc. We used the pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi, the only negative was the changing room floor could have done with a mop, but the girls were always busy.
Out and about, we walked the rural route from behind the hotel to Edradour Distillery which was interesting !! Took aprox 1/2 hour but wellies would have been a good idea!! Worth it though, as it is very pretty and had guided tours and a shop. Walked from hotel to Hydro Electric Centre, Fish Ladder and Dam, also visited Heathergems Factory. Wanted tickets for Enchanted Forest but was all sold out when we were there unfortunately.
We would definately return so go and enjoy the Atholl Palace as we did !
