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. Unfortunately we stayed over 2 damp, misty days and were left to imagine what we might have seen. We thoroughly enjoyed the setting and the ambiance of the house. No impersonal... More

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

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
