Only went for dinner on Friday night as at the Horse trails.. Very busy but a table for 4 was found for us.. Three of us ate of the bar menu one had the carvery plus a bottle of wine.. Service was quick and very enjoyable.. The veggie curry is fabulous as is the carvery so my husband says.

Will be back next year.

We were originally booked into another hotel under the same ownership but there was a problem with our reservation. They only had us down for one night instead of two even though I produced my e-mail confirmation. Anyway, after a few phone calls, they sent us to the Atholl Arms but they only had two twin rooms for us which we accepted. They did honor our original rate as I understand the Atholl Arms is more expensive.

The formal dining room is quite impressive and we enjoyed dinner and two breakfasts in this room. We did see a starter on the pub memu that we wanted to try but were told no. Just seems like this would have been a simple request to honor. We did have it in the pub the next night and it was tasty.

One of our twin rooms was definitely nicer and larger than the other. One over looked the outdoor seating of the pub, The other room over looked the dumpsters in the back and was VERY small. This room should only be rented as a single. It is just too small for two people and luggage too. Wi-Fi is not great especially once you leave the lobby.

This hotel is a little tired and in need of some updating but the public areas are nice.

Room Tip: I would look at your room. The twin room with the red and green plaid spreads is really small.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Atholl Arms Hotel, close to both the Blair Atholl castle and railway station for four nights. My room had good views of the nearest hills through large window. It was airy and light with comfy double bed, lots of room a large bathroom in perfect order.
Breakfast is taken in the baronial dinning room which could be nowhere else but Scotland and I don't just mean because of the Tartern which therms the decor every where. There is a vast breakfast menu with the cooked Scottish breakfast becoming a new favourite. The black pudding is probably the best I have found any where.
For lunch on Sunday the Bothy Bar offers a first class carvary washed down with a pint of local Braveheart real ale.
Evening meal in the main dining room feature local produce such as wild Haggis, salmon and venison, presented in many delicious recipes. Manly portion sizes. A great place to stay.

We stayed for one night as our daughter was at blair athol international scout camp. Our 1 night cost us half as much as her 10 day camp..(.£110) b&b...... the room was nice bathroom could have done with an upgrade. Would recommend the wee pub next door for food (athol bothy). Hotel restaurant was fully book any way...

On our recent 2 day break in the hotel down the road we popped in here several times for something to eat or drink. The food was excellent every time, the service very good and the bar area is a really nice cosy place to have a drink or a meal if a wee bit dark in places. But it's got old fashioned traditional flair and wouldn't have the same charm if it was all lit up.

We had a voucher which included afternoon tea. We enjoyed this out in the garden in the sunshine. It was all delicious. Our room was a bit overwhelming with much tartan, but spotlessly clean and we grew strangely fond of the tartan! The building is Scottish baronial and very close to the station but the trains did not disturb us at all. Very comfortable bed and a great night's sleep. We visited the theatre in Pitlochry in the evening....just a few miles away. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly and very efficient. Delicious breakfast with lots of choice. Oh, also had a wonderful manicure and pedicure at the nearby Spa Uniq. This hotel has so much to offer and is in the heart of the bonniest part of Scotland!

Ate here on several occasions in July, menu was excellent, staff good and helpful.

Sadly one lovely evening we wanted to eat out in the garden but because of two or three irresponsible sets of parents who let their kids play football in the gardens and on the tables we couldn't, so just needs some management presence to coach the parents! We are a family but certainly don't want footballs bouncing off our food and tables!

There was no meal that wasn't good and the car very on Sunday was delicious .

Will certainly go back.
