First trip to this hotel after a recommendation. The staff are very friendly and professional and the food at dinner exceptional. The bar is well stocked with whisky, naturally, but also a good range of gins. Wine list not bad but on the high end of pricing. Breakfast good and hearty. Location adjacent to the Tay offers fishing and a... More

Ballathie Hotel is a lovely old estate house with a view over the river Tay that has to be seen and makes you think you are going back in time. The staff whom you meet when you first arrive are so welcoming and it just gets better as you meet the rest of the staff whom are excellent at their... More

The hotel is set within lovely grounds. On arrival you head up a long drive way to be presented with a stunning looking building. This however is where my enjoyable experience finished. I checked into the hotel, to find I was staying in the sportsmans lodges. The accommodation was dated and an uncomfortable place to stay. Annoyingly the wifi was... More

We returned for our 4 year anniversary after getting married at Ballathie. We stayed in the same room (bridal suite) which had been tastefully refurbished but still very much in keeping with the House. Dinner was amazing and without doubt competing for the top restaurant in Scotland for both food, service and views out over the silvery Tay. Jalah and... More

Ballathie House dates from around 1860. It is situated on the River Tay. It is part of a huge country estate and the driveway must be almost one mile long. We loved the peace and quiet of the place. It has huge ceilings and many rooms to sit and chill. It's like hotels used to be 50 years ago. The... More

Stayed at this hotel in October 2014. We had exclusive use of the hotel for a wedding. The rooms were great the food was great and the staff were very attentive. The riverside location was idyllic. While it was cold outside, the atmosphere remain warm and cosy inside.

This hotel is wonderful and full of character, the grounds are immaculate and the team were all friendly and welcoming, offering exceedingly 'polished' service. The garden was looking great and was a peaceful retreat. A great location in Perthshire too. The restaurant staff in the beautiful dining room were efficient, charming, demonstrated great product knowledge and precision in their service.... More

There were 6 of us (3 couples) and we stayed in the Riverside building. All rooms had views of the river and countryside. Very relaxing. We had dinner which was quite expensive but worth it for a treat. Staff all friendly and very helpful. Would recommend for a special night away.

Travelling on business I get to visit many hotels in the UK and abroad. I have been to Ballathie before but promised to return as it was a flying visit as I arrived very late, after 10:30 and left at 6am. I wanted to experience the hotel. I did and was not happy. I booked a room through Laterooms.com on... More

Dear Duncan B Thank you for your recent review. I am very disappointed to hear of your experience of Ballathie and that this lead to you cancelling your room and making alternative arrangements. We always endeavour to try our best to accommodate guests for dinner, even if arriving slightly later, as you have stated on a previous review of our... More
