Expert Review

Personalized service is the priority at this New Town property, where a coattailed butler will fulfill your every whim – or at least give you an alternative option. The atmosphere is warm, elegant, and without an ounce of stuffiness, resulting in an opulent boutique hotel that feels almost like a private townhouse. The 200-year-old Georgian-style complex features 18 guestrooms, each with antique furnishings (yet strikingly modern fabrics), plus a host of luxurious amenities such as a flat-screen TV, same-day laundry and dry cleaning, Internet access, 24-hour room service, and in-room massage treatments. Those seeking additional creature comforts can book one of the five junior or terrace suites for extras such as a marble bathroom with Jacuzzi, oversized claw-foot tub and rain shower, plus a fireplace, kitchenette, or private patio. The Atholl restaurant serves superior modern Scottish fare, including an award-winning Afternoon Tea of finger sandwiches, traditional scones, and a selection of artisan teas or coffee.
