Spent only one night in Balgowan House, but will definitely return if only to get a glimpse of the wonderful view over the Botanical Gardens and the River Tay.

I stayed in the deluxe room at the back of the property, which had a stunning view over the botanical gardens and across the river Tay. The room was spacious, clean with a TV, free wi-fi, tea and coffee facilities, but no land line. The bathroom was huge with separate shower and bath and a heated towel rail. Other points:... More

We really enjoyed the stay, rooms clean and well appointed. Rooms we stayed in had fantastic views. The accomadition is well located and plenty of off street parking. We enjoyed the flexibility of the great hosts and the large stair cases for transportation of luggage.

We have just returned from a one night stay & can only agree with all the previous 5 star reviews! We stayed in Room 1 which is a large, comfortable room with modern en-suite and a fantastic view over the botanic gardens & the Tay. Very tasty breakfast and it was nice to chat to other guests around the large... More

Comfortable, clean and spacious room with separate en suite. Magnificent view over garden and river Tay. Tasty cooked or continental breakfast served in elegant dining room. Pleasant and welcoming host, who accommodated our request for... More

We agree and reinforce all the good things written about Balgowan in the preceding reviews. We stayed for 3 nights; 1st night in Room 3 and then moved into Room 1 for a view over the Tay. Both rooms were huge by comparison with other places we have stayed, with great en-suite bathrooms; all very clean and comfortable. The specially... More

Stayed one night for a course at ninewells hospital (perfect for this only 20 min walk away). Nothing was too much trouble. The host was very welcoming and went well beyond standard expectations to be helpful. The house is beautiful, rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean with toiletries and tea/coffee making facilities etc provided. Breakfast was included in my room... More
