Stayed here for a long week-end, a great choice. From the warm welcome when we arrived through meal service to helpful advice as we went along, all the staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was great too: buffet and cooked choices at breakfast and tasty bar food in the evening. A sign of how good the food was... More

Food in the bar is good and homely. My only negative comment is that it's on the expensive side. I understand the hotel is in the west end however £15 for a child's burger and chips is a little excessive.

Management response:

Thank you for your positive comments on the good and homely food. However I am not sure where your price of £15 for a child's burger comes from. There is no burger on the seperate children's menu, on the main menu there is an Atholl burger priced at £11.45. If you were to add chilli as an extra option at... More

As on previous stays the Atholl was first class. Everything you want and need from a hotel. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Had dinner bed and breakfast 3 nights, food was excellent. What makes the Atholl special is the staff, they are terrific

Checked in here for one night and it is a very comfortable place to stay. The staff are kind, helpful and attentive. Bed was a bit uncomfortable and the shower a bit on the cool side. Overall though I would stay here again.

I stayed there a few times for business. It is not very central, but convenient for the University. Wifi ok, good rooms and fine for a great sleep. The restaurant is very good but closes early (9.30). A number of times i got there from the airport late to find there were only sandwiches. Apart from that, the whole stay... More

The Atholl provided us with comfort, welcome, attention to detail and genuine concern that we enjoy our stay and our visit to the Aberdeen area. They quickly corrected a minor telecommunication problem we encountered. The only down-side is that it is a bit of a walk to Union Street and Old Aberdeen through meandering streets but they helped us navigate.

I went there for my first day in Aberdeen but for dinner so I only can tell about how the Restaurant was. I enjoyed the food, it was tasty, traditional scottish. The Atholl hotel looks very nice but inside it is more like a normal location.
