Well we had the good fortune to stay at this lovely, well maintained hotel on Saturday. From the start of the visit to the end we were treated very well by all the staff we came into contact with. It was a busy weekend but there were plenty of areas to relax and unwind, which is exactly what we did.... More

Dear PicassoInvernes, We appreciate the time you have taken to write a review about Ballathie – Thank-you! All of our river suite rooms have private balconies, where as you would have experienced, is the perfect place to “relax and unwind”. The odd salmon jumping is a treat! We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of December. The hotel location is fabulous and the tree lined driveway ensures you know you are in for a treat. We had fabulous weather with thick ground frost, blue skies and sunshine, perfect for a brisk walk around the grounds. We ate in the hotel on the first night and,... More

We stayed for a weekend in this lovely hotel in the Riverside suite. There is a very long drive through the gardens and the main hotel is beautiful. We were impressed with the friendliness and efficiency if the staff, the cleanliness and comfort of our suite, the wonderful views, but the best thing of all was the food. Every bite... More

We visited with our dog and were all made to feel very welcome. The large room was very comfortable and had an external door directly to the river side, which was excellent for the dog.
