My husband and I have stayed at Ballathie House a few times, but haven't been for around four years. We chose to return for a two night break as Ballathie is dog friendly. We were in a ground floor room in the Riverside. This was really convenient as the door opened straight out into the grounds. The staff were relaxed... More

We are just coming to the end of a 5 night stay, the weather has been atrocious but the hospitality and friendliness of this charming country hotel and estate more than made up for the conditions outside. We stayed in a ground floor room (Riverside) which overlook the Tay and every thing is what you would expect from a quality... More

Continuing my motorcycle journey around the UK this suited for its location and reasonable proximity to my mother and sisters enabling a charming location to celebrate my mothers birthday. A grand but friendly country house hotel with fine dining and a beautiful location. I chose a single room which although compact was tastefully dressed as a period wooden yacht. The... More

I returned to Ballathie for a night's stay after 23 years. It holds special memories for me and I was so glad that after walking through the front door that wonderful ambiance was still there. All the dishes on the dinner menu were my favourite foods so it was a very difficult choice indeed. The food and service was excellent... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel to celebrate my Birthday. It was fabulous. The location, the hotel design, the staff were really good. The bedroom wasn't huge but it was large enough, very clean and with great views of the river. I didn't realise that fishing is a big sport here - people had even flown in from... More

Dear Karen B, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about Ballathie. You are correct in stating that the fishing beats at Ballathie are world famous. Fishing is one of the spoils we have to offer. Located on it’s own estate, Ballathie offers all of our guests silence and tranquillity – A home away from home. It... More

Nice hotel which is a bit oldy worldy. The food and beverage aspects of the hotel are generally of the highest class. Dinner was sublime and breakfast was good. Where we were left disappointed was with the staff. On arrival we waited at reception for 5 minutes before anyone appeared to check us in. At dinner we had a lecture... More

In a peaceful location close to the River Tay we were directed to our room at the end of a very quiet old house tastefully made into a hotel both for guests generally and also for the fly-fishing fraternity. While our room had only a small window overlooking the river, we were able to look out onto other countryside, completing... More
