The rooms and food are both very good. Allthe staff are extremelyhelpfull. Obviously the hotel is ideal for fishermen,which I am not but I couldn't have been cared for better. The only complaint is paying extra for tea or Coffee after lunch or Dinner.Most hotels I go to add it as an essential part of the meal.

Stayed with friends to play golf at Blairgowrie, a wonderful couple of days. A very comfy country house mainly occupied by fishers so was quite busy but the staff efficiently gave us a set dining time and the food was excellent. Rooms possibly could do with a little updating but very comfortable. We will return

I read all the reviews and saw all the rosettes but why was I disappointed ?? The staff in the main were pleasant and helpful but what was missing ? Our room was perfectly adequate but the windows were hermetically sealed until somehow we managed to get help from a smallish wisp of a helper who obviously possessed superhuman powers... More

We stayed here for weekend break in August 2016. Excellent peaceful break in a brilliant setting with views along the river. We took our dog with us so our accommodation was out with main building. This was however excellent. Large room with balcony overlooking the river. Room very clean and had everything needed even a fridge. Grounds well kept and... More

Visited Ballathie House for a private business dinner and overnight stay. Staff, accommodation and food all excellent. A big thanks to Liz for organising it all.

We stayed here when 1st arrived in Scotland . We were put in the lodge even though our reservation said main house. I feel like maybe we missed something not being in the main house. The lodge was nice, clean. We had reservations for dinner - excellent meal and friendly staff. Breakfast was also very good. Beautiful, peaceful place.

Absolutely wonderful dinner with the family. Beautifully presented, so tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed our four course dinner. The staff are helpful and pleasant. Rooms are a little tired and quite small. We were in Stirling overlooking the river. My daughter was happy in hers, 23.It looked less dated. My son was in River on the ground floor

A very nice, comfortable and traditional, in best sense large country hotel near Perth. Excellent restaurant , service and surroundings. Nice river walk and even spotted a young deer walking in garden. The out-house room I had was reasonable facility although a stroll upto main house.
