With friends & family, we took over almost the whole hotel for the weekend for our son's wedding at Blair Castle on 30.07.11.
We had a very happy and relaxing time at the Atholl Arms; staff were quietly helpful and made every effort to ensure that the needs of all our guests were catered for........children, young folk and more mature guests!
We had several guests from overseas and they were looked after well by staff - from explanations of all sorts, to special food requirements.
The food was extremely good, fresh and well presented. The dinner on the Friday evening was particularly enjoyed by all in our party, with an attractive variety of well cooked dishes from which to choose. We all appreciated the supply of coffee in the lounge area after dinner when we wanted to sit about and chat.
Breakfasts offered something to suit everyone, were plentiful and set folk up for the day.
The children in our party enjoyed the freedom of the outside garden area, where they could run about and have fun: their parents enjoyed the fact that it was a safe area where their children could have some space and they could enjoy drinks and company in the sunshine.
There were some minor concerns from guests in standard rooms situated over the kitchen: the one complaint voiced was addressed by staff.
Rooms were clean and fresh on arrival. Our twin room was comfortable, the bathroom was clean but the decor was dated and the shower not good.
The rooms were quite hot at night - not often a problem in Scotland I know, but maybe lighter weight, summer duvets would help.
For the ladies, the rather dim lighting in rooms and bathrooms was a problem - energy saving bulbs may be environmentally sound, but they don't provide good light for doing hair and makeup for a wedding !
We were all there to enjoy a very special family weekend and we certainly did that. Our thanks go to all the staff.
