This was our first visit to Ballathie and we enjoyed our 2 day stay immensely. The hotel is a magnificent baronial mansion standing above the River Tay with fantastic views out over the river and the surrounding estate. The public rooms are all palatial with high ceilings and fine decor, with plenty of light from the tall windows. We were staying in the Riverside apartments about 250 metres from the main building. The rooms were large and very well appointed,with comfortable beds and all the modern facilities you would expect in a 4 star country house hotel.
The food in the restaurant was extremely good; the full dinner included an amuse bouche and an intermediate course, making 5 courses in total. They have 2 AA rosettes at present but in my opinion they may soon warrant 3 rosettes. The service was very attentive both during dinner service and at breakfast. The General Manager, Jody Marshall, looked after his guests assiduously, welcoming them, chatting over dinner and saying farewell - always setting a great example.
We will definitely return,hopefully to try out the fishing from the hotel's own river bank!
