We booked this overnight stay with 5pm .co. for £111... for the two of us on a BandB basis... The hotel itself was very much hidden away in idyllic countryside, but after a while we saw it signposted. We were tired after a long drive, so we decided to have a short nap in our room ,and ask for the... More

Have eaten at the Ballathie several times and visited for just a drink. In lovely surroundings with the usual long drive the building is very Scottish. The food is excellent; expensive but worth it and the staff are extremely helpful and pleasant.

We got this on a 5pm deal at a great price. There was a wedding on in the main house so we were allocated one of the riverside rooms. They overlook the river with their own balcony which was very picturesque. Rooms are spotless and traditionally decorated. Beds were a little soft for me but comfy. Due to the wedding... More

My wife and I booked the Ballathie through Secret Escapes which turned out to be fantastic. The hotel grounds are simply outstanding. Long sweeping drive takes you down to the secluded hotel.

The food here is to die for. Happened across this place by accident and ended up having our wedding there. Returned since and hope to many more times. Excellent! Jody and his team are attentive without being intrusive and the dining experience is so special.

Stayed here in one of the river view rooms. Very clean and tidy, good amenities and loved how quick it was to run a toasty bath. The room decor is a bit dated, like Laura Ashley in the 80's but in perfectly good condition. The hotel itself was quite quiet. The bar service was good as were all the staff... More
