We booked for a night away and having agreed a rate then found online a significant reduced rate which the hotel honoured. This was good service and much appreciated. The meal at £49 is a bit steep but the food was good and the service was friendly and not at all stuffy. This is a great venue and being regular... More

About 6 weeks ago, we booked to stay at this hotel for one night. Then about 10 days before we were due to stay, I received a phone call from the hotel informing me that due to a private party booking exclusive use of the hotel, we would have no access to the main part of the hotel, which includes...

My wife and I took advantage of a great offer and visited this hotel for the first time. From the minute we walked through the door we were hit with a lovely welcoming atmosphere - the staff couldn't do enough to help and ensure that we were comfortable. We settled in to a lovely drawing room and ordered champagne afternoon... More

"Your Ballathie experience starts here!" proclaims the sign on the hotel driveway as you exit the main road. The drive up to the main hotel building is about 3/4 mile and does indeed make a very favourable impact. Unfortunately, we did not find the hotel itself to be as impressive as it clearly wanted to be perceived. Positives: - Seclusion.... More

Spent 2 nights here; had a room in the Sportsman's Lodge. Cost was £90 for the room on a B & B basis. Room is described by the management as "top end 3*" - well it's not. On the plus side it was big, and quiet. However, it was more like a big motel room than a luxury Scottish country... More

My boyfriend surprised me for our anniversary & booked us one night at Ballathie House. From the beginning it was just dreamy, the drive in to the hotel was lovely we felt we were a million miles away from anything, perfect for what we were looking for. Upon arrival we were greeted instantly by a lovely member of staff, although... More

I attended the Perthshire Chamber of Commerce "Showcase Lunch" on Tuesday 8th July. Whilst the grounds and setting are stunning, no attention to detail has been spared for the service, drink and food. The food is fabulous and I only wish I'd taken the menu home with me to share with my wife!! Will definitely be back.

We had an overnight stay at Ballathie House Hotel on Sunday 6th July, this was our first stay at the hotel but it will not be our last! From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we had a fantastic, relaxing break. The grounds, hotel room and public areas were all of a high standard but the real... More

I shall start with what was good, indeed very good, about our short stay at Ballathie House. The house itself is delightful, as are the grounds, and to be able to wander through them to the lovely River Tay is a real bonus. Dinner was a feast for the eyes and brought the taste buds well and truly alive. The... More

My wife & I had the pleasure of staying here a couple of weeks ago. Our room in the Riverside building was excellent, with views of the main hotel & river.
