I find it hard to think of a fault here! Reception greeting and explanation was superb, the room outstanding, the grounds wonderful, the bar and restaurant service as good as I have ever experienced and a chef using local ingredients with flair, imagination, sympathy and skill There is nothing lacking here. 5 star is a term used too easily to...

Just one word: amazing! The park, the views, the whisky, the service... You feel like in a 19 century novel. If you like fishing or walking, it is the place to be! Jalal is very friendly, and all the staff makes you feel at home! Restaurant is famous and one should book prior to the stay

While driving from Meigle (where we saw the Pictish Stones) to Stanley (Mills) we were looking for a place to have a bite to eat. We noticed the signs for Ballathie and decided to go and have a look, half and half anticipating an unaffordable lunch. In the car we were joking about the endless driveway that was put in... More

Hotel: most guests sent to the new secondary building. Main house much more attractive. It appears the main house was well appointed at some time, but after being robbed of its splendor, today it is a shadow of itself. Still very agreeable, but simply faded, and commercialized. Setting is great quality, and looks. Restaurant: the chef got, according to their... More

We have stayed many times and thought it was time to share our view with people looking for a good country house hotel. The food is always excellent, and the rooms very pleasant in a classic country house hotel way. It is always warm with quality bed linen and good soap and shampoo. Coffee always comes with little treats like... More

We stayed here on Saturday 6th August for 1 night. Paid £160 b&b for a room in what they call the sportsman's lodges. When you are booking you don't actually get to see what Sportsman's lodge really looks like. Let me tell you they are worse than a cheap Blackpool b&b.. Essentially some portacabins. It's really in the middle of... More

Went here for a night with friends. An oddly endearing place with some staff that need some training. The bar staff were rude and the house maids were told off in the corridors by their boss in front of us. But still I kind of liked it. Lots of stuffed animals and dead butterflies in this hunting and shooting type... More
