To say Atholl Palace Hotel is a grand old building is an understatement, as you approach along its private drive this magnificent building appears and few would fail to be impressed by the anticipation of what is to come. The high ceiling public rooms are super large and traditionally furnished giving an almost imperial feeling to them - certainly that of a bygone age and yet it is this and the splendid outward appearance of the building that only serve to create unhappiness as your bedroom is reached. Perhaps we were just unlucky with our allocated room, it was decidedly small and made us glad that we were only staying a single night. Furnishings that had presumably at one time seemed de-lux now showed decided signs of wear, although on the plus side everything was clean and the bed comfortable. Our room was quiet and the plumbing worked with no problems. We chose not to have dinner in the hotel instead exploring Pitlochry. Breakfast was for us disappointing - yes it was large, but also the hot food seemed to have been cooked sometime before we arrived. I do not consider the price to represent very good value although the ambiance of the building in someway makes up for the poor room size and breakfast. I would not stay in this hotel again.
