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.

My wife and I have just returned from a 3 night stay in this lovely hotel. There was one small gripe as you can see from review heading. Our package was a deluxe double plus breakfast and the room rate was certainly fair,but the one gripe was the tiny bathroom facility.Now my wife is of small build, but we both... More

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. The room was more than luxurious with a lovely view out over the gardens and country estate. Dinner on both evenings was truly a fine dining experience which couldn't be faulted in anyway. Service was... More

We recently stayed at Ballathie for 2 nights & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The food (dinner & breakfast) was excellent as was the service of the staff. My only 'niggle' or thing to be improved on is the decor of the rooms. Very comfortable, clean but a little modernising wouldn't go amiss - or a few Scottish touches (tasteful tartan... More

If you have read any poor reviews (one in particular), I highly recommend reading a) the hotel manager's excellent response and b) reading all the fabulous and in our opinion, far more accurate and fair reviews. We are still at the hotel and it's been a superb experience. The staff are delightful and so helpful and the food is something... More
