We have just been for a weekend break in Pitlochry and picked Atholl palace as it looked fantasitic and reviews were good unfortunately this was not the case. Positives = The hotel does look lovely and so do the gardens and the location is perfect. Bad points = The facilities not working this weekend were the out door pool, Sauna, Steam room, Plunge pool and Jacuzzi.
The restaurant is fine for breakfst but for dinner a massive disappointment and i urge every one to go to a local bar like Mckays for good food. Our steaks were of poor quality and then cooked very badly as were the starters. Not good considering our meal was over £80 for two people.
When we aired our problems with the hotel manager he was not bothered at all and responded with " well no one uses those other facilites any way " and when we mentioned that the food was much better quality in the local pub then his restaurant he replied " really where was that " ha ha maybe he was thinking of taking his wife there ..
