It took ages to pick a hotel in Perthshire! and the mixed reviews for Atholl did make me wary. We were travelling, 2 adults and 2 children (10 & 11) and we were on a a few days break to Scotland and wanted to see some of the Highlands. The scenery is stunning and so picturesque. The hotel itself did not disappoint me, I knew it wasn't a shiny modern hotel and warned the family it would be quaint and characterful so they were well prepared. We were in a family room - great size, but they could do with putting more toiletries in a room for 4! we were on the top floor which added to the ambience and view!
We ate that night in the restaurant, the food was as advertised, not haute cuisine but very acceptable and with great service and great value. Breakfast again was superb and set us up for the day, we enjoyed a walk on the grounds before leaving and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel - the staff at every service point were very helpful.
