visited Balbirnie for my birthday and loved every moment of it. I recieved a very friendly welcoming from the reception team and even by the lovely housekeeping team on arrival!
Nothing was too much hassle and they really went out of their way to make me and my friend feel welcome. The rooms were spotless and i loved the way the hotel portrays the country house theme throughout! The hotel is beautiful and i was speechless when we drove up the drive and caught our first glimpse of the grand georgian building! The rate for the hotel is very fair and personally i would pay more. The dinning experience was most enjoyable, we were shown through to the library bar where we sat on a lovely comfortable sofa and enjoyed a delicious glass of House champagne. The orangery ( the main restaurant) was beautiful and the staff were very attentive, constantly topping up my glass with iced water! The food was cooked to perfection, especially my fillet steak. The chef even presented my dessert on a plate decorated with happy birthday in chocolate writing!! I really cannot fault Balbirnie House Hotel in anyway and cant wait to return! I do have one regret and that is I did not have time to enjoy a relaxing massage in the therapy room. Thanks Balbirnie for a WONDERFUL stay.
