We stayed on one of the hotel’s December/January breaks which represent good value at 5 nights for the price of 3.
Our rooms were very comfortable, warm and well serviced as were the rest of the public areas of the hotel. Unfortunately the Bothy Bar is closed on weekdays during winter months so we used the hotel bar which was fine. When the Bothy Bar is not available the price charged for real ale was the same in the hotel bar.
We ate in the hotel for our entire stay and found the food to be good and nicely presented.
The staff were helpful and friendly and Heather the owner, who was often present is charming.
The hotel is well situated and there are several great walks which can be accessed straight from the hotel without the need to drive anywhere. A few hundred yards away is Blair Castle, open to visitors and a museum. If you want to go further afield the railway station is only a few minutes walk. Pitlochry is only 7 miles away where you can find good shops, restaurants, two distilleries, and a theatre.
This was our first stay at the Athol Arms, we normally stay in the sister hotel at Pitlochry however having now discovered it I’m sure that we’ll be back.
