Spent one night here before doing the 'Land Rover Experience' nearby (recommended). Beautiful old house which is privately owned so still retains it's character and history. We had a standard room in the main house above reception accessed via a lovely old, wide staircase. The room was comfy and homely. My only gripe being that it was freezing! It was only five degrees outside yet someone had wedged the window open. The hotel welcome pack declares that the hotel ' treats it's guests like royalty' but they should ensure rooms are cosy on such a cold day. We only had a shower but I'm sure rooms with baths are available. There was an area with sofas on the first floor which was nice.
We wandered down to dinner about 7pm and the downstairs area was pretty busy with diners which made for a nice vibe. The log fire was roaring. I did think that the downstairs area could have been made cosier with the use of plants Eric as it felt a bit like a thoroughfare. Dinner was first class - every course was wonderful as was the Lebanese red wine we selected. Personally I would change the decor in the dining room - it could be lovely in there but right one it feels soulless with those standard 'function suite' style of chairs.
The other good thing about Ballathie is that you can take your dogs and there are lots of walks around the grounds to enjoy.
