We have been using this hotel for many years and it never fails to please. It's position is unrivalled and views to the River Tay are afforded from the Public rooms and some Bedrooms. Whatever time of the year, it has a wonderful, peaceful ambience. Every member of Staff here is most charming and although faces change, the standards remain.... More

We stayed 3 nights in January at Ballathie House for around £50 per person B&B which was fantastic value (we booked through Late Rooms). The Hotel is located in its own beautiful estate by the River Tay which flows just by the front windows. The decor has a warm period ambience and the bedrooms, lounges, dining rooms and even hallways... More

This is an absolutely beautiful little place. It feels like an exclusive club. The staff were all very keen to please and took great pride in their work. The room was very comfortable in the riverside house. Nice riverside walks just out the front door. We were a bit put off by the price of dinner and planned to have... More

Stayed here with a group last Spring and it was amazing. The food was outstanding and the grounds are fantastic. We hiked all over the property. The service was also outstanding. We had our one-year old daughter with us and they took extra notice and care to make sure we were all comfortable and had what we needed.

I spent 2 nights here using it as a base whilst up on business and was truly blown away by the fantastic service here. I booked the dinner, bed and breakfast winter deal for £99 and once I experienced the brilliant restaurant service and unbelievable food, I couldn't believe the value. The hotel also boasts an outstanding wine list to... More

My husband and I stayed for one night in Jan 2015. We had afternoon tea as well as dinner bed and breakfast. The afternoon tea was excellent and there was a good range of sandwiches cakes and teas. The lounge was very comfortable and the fire really added to the ambiance. Dinner was excellent, well presented, full of taste and... More

We stayed at the Ballathie House Hotel for a night on a deal that included a three-course dinner and breakfast for two. The hotel is located in beautiful grounds, the "main building" looks like a romantic mini-castle and is relatively well-maintained, still possessing kind of a period ambience inside. However, the place can do with a tasteful makeover, giving it... More

In terms of a perfect Xmas if it exists, you couldn't get much closer than this. Wonderful Scottish setting & traditional hotel with log fires, period furniture, lovely Xmas decorations & most importantly, passionate dedicated staff. All in all a genuine pleasure. But for us a couple of drawbacks - the 4 course set dinner menu because we felt the... More
