Stayed overnight after a private celebration lunch. Smart move. The hotel is located on the banks of the river and although our room faced the front, it was not noisy and had enough open space in front of it to look out on. Room was lovely, spacious and comfortable and the food amazing. We were well looked after without being... More

we had an overnight stay here using a groupon voucher. Having read the lovely reviews I must admit to being a bit disappointed. We are just an ordinary working-class mature couple and we were looking forward to a pleasant luxurious stay. Well if you like being waited on and having to watch your p's and q's, this is for you.... More

We have just returned from this hotel after staying overnight. What an absolutely beautiful place. Idyllic setting. Amazing staff & good company. We were in room 14 The Caithness room. It was just perfect, looking straight onto the river, where people were fishing. It was so tranquil & peaceful & so relaxing. Everything about the place just exuded opulence. The... More

I have stayed here on numerous occasions and it is and still is one of my favourite hotels but........ On my previous stays all rooms have been and are excellent but on my recent visit however I was allocated room 8 which really doesn't do the place justice as it is little more than a single with a double bed...

I would very much recommend this hotel, especially if you enjoy fine food! We upgraded our room for £50 extra and would definitely suggest others to do the same, we had a stunning view of the river and the room was lovely and spacious! Staff were incredible during our stay!

Situated 8 miles north of Perth and set in extensive grounds it is a perfect for relaxing or exploring the area. I can highly recommend the Riverside rooms, no 8 was a good sized room with great views from both it's windows. The large balcony with views over the river was very calming. All staff were friendly and helpful, but... More

We had the good fortune to stay here after needing some last minute accommodation in the area. We stayed in riverside rooms and found it to be beautiful, large and well appointed. The walk up to the main house was actually a real treat as we admired the autumn colours. Ballathie is set in the most stunning grounds, and definitely... More
