I have to say that I simply loved my stay at the Atholl Palace Hotel. To see it has a guest rating of 2.2 out of 5 on some sites is truly shocking. The grounds alone are magnificent, with acres of space, walks, tennis courts, fountains, streams and more. The look of the Hotel is nothing short of spectacular, both from the A9 road, and up close. The interior is dated in areas but is clean and the decor is very fitting. I really did feel I was staying somewhere very special. The staff on reception were friendly and helpful, as were those at the bar. Bar prices were about £4 a pint or short with mixer, and I enjoyed a couple of drinks on the outside benches, overlooking the beautiful scenery in the evening sun. We ate in the bar, which is a slightly different, slightly cheaper menu from the main restaurant, but it was delicious. I had a fish starter which was all fresh and beautifully presented, and my chicken main was also excellent. Two courses each for two persons was less than £40 - which for the standard of food, was very reasonable. The rooms were nothing too special, but the bed was comfortable, the shower (and toiletries) were excellent, and the tea/coffee/buscuit tray was well stocked. The only bad thing I experienced.....was having to leave! I did not get chance to use the leisure facilities due to work, but judging by the rest of the splendid hotel - I would imagine that they would be of a high standard. I can't wait to go back!!!
