Nice outdoor sitting with river view. Really comfortable. We were contacted several times before we arrived to check eating plans etc, due to high demand fron the wedding party which... 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

Dear Iainaross, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about Ballathie. It is disheartening to read that you feel staff training is not at the standard you feel it should be. Training is something we hold in high regard and actively promote. I have spoken to our wine waiter, who apologises for making you feel “lectured to”.... 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

This overnight stay was a birthday treat for my 80th birthday. i find it very difficult to find a fault.

We decided to have an overnight here to celebrate our anniversary, having had our wedding here quite a few years ago! We live nearby, and have eaten here from time to time over the years, but it was interesting to see what the accommodation was like. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, with lovely views of the river and... More

I have just returned from yet another outstanding stay at the Ballathie which I consider to be my second home. Highlights this trip were as follows; Wonderful welcome, exceptional dinner - the seabass was particularly good. Lovely quiet room overlooking the river. What is such a joy is the absence of ghastly piped music. Convivial bar.... I could go on.... More

Lovely afternoon tea served here. Really enjoyed the sandwiches and the cakes, a generous number of both were provided. The scone could have tasted a bit better although that could be personal taste. Would recommend this venue.

I think that this hotel was beautiful inside and out. The staff was friendly and efficient. There was a function there the day I was there and they were a bit noisy. I woke up once due to the noise, but then things quieted down. I would stay there again.
