This was a quick night away to try a hotel/restaurant we had not previously visited. This is a quintessential country house hotel set in extensive estate grounds Our bedroom was well below expectations - a very small double that was not really suitable for two people. The bathroom although a reasonable size was not as clean as it should be... More

lunch at Ballathie is an elegant and undrstated event. Excellent food served in small and delicious portions in a country dining room with friendly and unpretentious service. The drawing room (where aperitivs, coffees and - later, afternoon tea - are served) is cosy, with large light windows looking onto the green lawn that goes down to the river. Fireplaces add... More

As a special Easter break for an important birthday, we went online and were most impressed with what we read about the Ballathie House Hotel. We booked up by telephone and arrived on Good Friday for a three-night visit. The quality of the hotel, its staff and management, and its grounds, surpassed our greatest expectations. We stayed at the Riverside... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times and it is always a pleasure to return. The drive up to the hotel through beautifully landscaped gardens is an experience in itself. This visit, as with previous ones fully lived up to expectations. The hotel is full of character with a real country house feel, but is in no way "stuffy"... More

We booked this overnight stay with 5pm .co. for £111... for the two of us on a BandB basis... The hotel itself was very much hidden away in idyllic countryside, but after a while we saw it signposted. We were tired after a long drive, so we decided to have a short nap in our room ,and ask for the... More

Dear Chizzyde27, Thank-you for taking the time to write a review about Ballathie. I am disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your stay. Reading through your review I think that it is apparent that the country house style of hotel (where plus fours are a given norm, and porridge with cream does not come with an “extra charge”)...

Have eaten at the Ballathie several times and visited for just a drink. In lovely surroundings with the usual long drive the building is very Scottish. The food is excellent; expensive but worth it and the staff are extremely helpful and pleasant.

We got this on a 5pm deal at a great price. There was a wedding on in the main house so we were allocated one of the riverside rooms. They overlook the river with their own balcony which was very picturesque. Rooms are spotless and traditionally decorated. Beds were a little soft for me but comfy. Due to the wedding... More
