Stayed in one of the Riverside rooms Room beautiful and clean with fantastic riverside views of the Tay Breakfast very good but only serve up to 9.30 a bit early for people on holiday. Charged £20.00 for my dog bit steep considering they did not supply dog bed or dishes for my dog. We had a ground floor room and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights stay at this delightful hotel. We picked a room in The Riverside building. We had a lovely balcony overlooking The Tay River. The staff were super. The food was delicious and I have a couple of dietary issues. I was asked when I telephoned to book, these were noted and checked with me on... More

Dear 100MarionS, Thank you very much for taking the time to post such a lovely review following your recent stay at Ballathie. The rooms in Riverside are extremely popular and many of our regular guests specifically request to stay here, all of the rooms have their own balcony overlooking the river. It was pleasing to read that the chef dealt... More

First class restaurant if you can get in. Avoid weddings is recommended, unless you are invited! All fresh local produce on the Menu. As you can imagine Salmon is high on the Menu. Great view over the River Tay

Hotel, staff and food were amazing. The Annex was clean but very basic. I would choose to stay in the actual hotel next time. The breakfast was probably the best fry up I have ever had, it was fresh, good quality but most importantly was piping hot which was very much appreciated

This hotel has a separate building called the Riverside, which is where I stayed. The outlook over the river and gardens is beautiful, and just a short walk from the hotel. The rooms are slightly dated but probably in keeping with the overall character of the place. Very quiet and a nice private balcony to sit on to enjoy the... More

There is so much to commend Ballathie Country House Hotel & Estate - to give it its full title - that it's difficult to know where to start. Coming from Perth on the A93 you'll glimpse it through the trees on the far side of the river, well before you turn off. If you're into hunting, shooting and fishing, enjoy... More

I'm not usually the one to write a review however on this occasion I felt it was required. I had heard wonderful things about Ballathie until i stayed. I was disappointed with the smell and uncleanliness of the room. We had cobwebs in our room. It smelt old. Then there was the hotel staff... Very rude. We attended a wedding... More
