The Scottish Highlands, wild and rugged, have a timeless romantic quality. At their very heart, where the River Tummel flows to the Tay, sits the historic small town of Pitlochry. 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.
The historic nature of the Atholl Palace Hotel means that every room is unique, with quirky original features, however, the truly outstanding feature of almost all our rooms is the view. Every bedroom is furnished to the highest standards with more than just the comforts of home. All the usual refinements of private bathrooms, telephone, tea and coffee making, hairdryers, trouser press and colour TV are provided. A lift serves the main floors although some rooms are accessed from the entresol levels which are not.
As well as single, double and twin bedrooms we offer well appointed family rooms, either Standard Family rooms (one double bed and one single bed) or Larger Family Suites (one double and two single beds). Superior double and twin rooms are also available with views over the gardens to Ben y Vrackie, known as Mountain View rooms, while our valley view rooms have superb south facing views of the Tummel Valley. Rooms are also available at the garden level, with easy access to our Spa and leisure facilities, and also to the gardens.
The Atholl Palace is now so much more than a hotel - it is a destination for day visitors as well as guests. You can easily spend a day exploring the gardens, discovering our museum and enjoying a bar lunch or afternoon tea in the lounge, not to mention being pampered in the Spa. We hope you enjoy the Atholl Palace, we want to make sure you’ll come back, again and again!
Our leisure pool is open from 7am - 9pm daily. It is a 1.2m deep pool so user friendly for all ages. We also have a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and plunge pool.
