Booked a last minute weekend away and chose this hotel as it was offering half price. It's advertised as 4 star and the food was about the only thing 4 star. The room was noisy as it was just across from the smokers area. You couldn't swing a mouse in the room never mind a cat. Dangerously slippy tiles in...

The Atholl Palace Hotel, the epitome of Scottish Baronial splendour, stands overlooking wooded parkland grounds and the town to the surrounding hills. Originally opened as the Athole Hydropathic in Victorian times, the hotel retains many features of the traditional large country house, with bedroom facilities and standards which often exceed expectations and complement spacious, relaxing public areas.With 107 bedrooms, self-catering lodges, apartments and 10 function suites we can cater for your needs whether it so leisure or business purposes. ... more   less
