First of all just to say that this review is long long overdue. We got married here at Ballathie House Hotel in the beautiful Perth countryside in April of this year and from start to finish it was a wonderful experience. We arrived on the night before the wedding along with many of our wedding party and had a private... More

We only stayed overnight at the Ballathie House but it was nice. Our room was clean, quiet, and provided a nice view. We had breakfast there the next morning, which was a little chaotic but the staff was very apologetic and did their best to seat us. In a nutshell, there was a small rush of people, the staff got...

Dear Angie M, We appreciate the time you have taken to write a review about Ballathie. Like all other hotels, Sunday mornings can be a little Chaotic. For me it is a combination if guests who are trying to get the maximum rest time in the morning (and so they should – they are here on holiday) and a group... More

Had a relaxing afternoon tea with my friend here. I can only describe the service as first class from being given a choice of rooms to sit in, to being shown an array of teas (which full descriptions of all). My friend & I were treated to a lovely selection of sandwiches & cakes, nearly all of which were totally... More

Stayed here for one night prior to a day's fishing on the Ballathie beat 2 mins from the hotel. Reception and grounds: Very informal, but also very welcoming. The receptionist explained where everything was and also confirmed our pre-booked dinner time. The location is spectacular and the main house is full of character, the public rooms are well very presented.... More

First I must say that we usually choose and stay at quality accommodation when we are on delivery trips and usually enjoy good standard of accommodation. Please see some of my other reviews. This will add a bit more weight to this 'poor accommodation' review. We booked 2 nights at this expensive hotel, this was a business trip where we... More

Went on the 7th sept for lunch with friends. The food and service from the bar before eating and the service at the table were first class. The decoration was good and the location by the river added to the ambience. The weather was good and it was a pleasure to walk around the grounds.

I have just spent an amazing weekend at this gorgeous hotel which is set in a picturesq location on the banks of the river Tay.
