Situated 8 miles north of Perth and set in extensive grounds it is a perfect for relaxing or exploring the area. I can highly recommend the Riverside rooms, no 8 was a good sized room with great views from both it's windows. The large balcony with views over the river was very calming. All staff were friendly and helpful, but... More

We had the good fortune to stay here after needing some last minute accommodation in the area. We stayed in riverside rooms and found it to be beautiful, large and well appointed. The walk up to the main house was actually a real treat as we admired the autumn colours. Ballathie is set in the most stunning grounds, and definitely... More

I surprised my partner for valentines day with a stay here. Booked room 17 which on the surface was nice but once entered the bathroom it was unbelievable. Have never ever came across such a filthly bathroom before. the staff showed absolutley no interest in condition of room and lack of respect.

Attracted to Ballathie by one of its offers. Been before, but only for a quick lunch. This time it was a 2 night accommodation deal with dinner extra. Paid extra for an upgrade to a suite and had dinner in the restaurant both nights. And wow, just how good was the restaurant? It was faultless. Food fantastic, service impeccable and... More

We stayed in Classic room number 18, which has a great view of the Tay. The room and bathroom aren't huge but aren't pokey either. The room is well appointed, with nice touches such as bathrobes, a trouser press and complimentary bottles of water. The bath and shower are terrific. Staff at dinner were attentive and efficient but unobtrusive; the... More
