We had a leak in our room between the room...

Fourth Year visiting so that tells you something. We book and take up the offer of a show at the Pitlochry Festival theatre which was White Christmas this year. The hotel is being uprated and the décor carpets and rooms have been reworked much better. The fires around the place give the sitting areas a warm feeling . The large...

I really wanted to love this place but found it a little tired. Our room was a little tatty and the radiator kept making a very loud banging noise. We ate lunch and dinner at the hotel, both of which were fine and the head waiter was particularly attentive. On a nice day, I'm sure a walk around the grounds...

We spent 2 nights at this hotel and really enjoyed the experience. The restaurant was good and we found the staff to be very nice which gave the restaurant a relaxed atmosphere which we liked.

We had the fortune to stay at the Atholl Palace Hotel for a night in late November this year. It's a beautiful property on a hill overlooking Pitlochry.

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 is leisure or business purposes. ... more   less
