I stayed here for one night last Saturday to attend the wedding of my cousin Andrew. I thought the setting was amazing & wish I had had either my smartphone or my camera to take pictures. The food was really nice & it was really well-cooked & served quickly & efficiently. I was a little concerned that as there were... More

I surprised my partner for valentines day with a stay here. Booked room 17 which on the surface was nice but once entered the bathroom it was unbelievable. Have never ever came across such a filthly bathroom before. the staff showed absolutley no interest in condition of room and lack of respect.

Attracted to Ballathie by one of its offers. Been before, but only for a quick lunch. This time it was a 2 night accommodation deal with dinner extra. Paid extra for an upgrade to a suite and had dinner in the restaurant both nights. And wow, just how good was the restaurant? It was faultless. Food fantastic, service impeccable and... More

We stayed in Classic room number 18, which has a great view of the Tay. The room and bathroom aren't huge but aren't pokey either. The room is well appointed, with nice touches such as bathrobes, a trouser press and complimentary bottles of water. The bath and shower are terrific. Staff at dinner were attentive and efficient but unobtrusive; the... More

We had a really lovely stay here. From start to finish the whole experience was just first class. We had a beautiful room overlooking the river, on opening the curtains in the morning..........the sun was shining and the river was sparkling , beautiful.

Stayed here for an overnight stay the weekend before my birthday. The hotel is in a lovely rural setting up a long driveway. When you reach it and see it you cannot but say wow. The hotel was fully booked so we were in Riverside lodges. These were really quiet. Our room was on the ground floor with a back... More

We stayed for two nights at the end of January in the main building rather than Riverside as Scottish weather can be unpredictable, especially at this time of year. Our expectations were already high as we have been here several times before but we were very impressed when the staff recognised us from previous visits. It may not have been... More
