We stayed at the Ballathie for 4 nights on a B&B basis. The room was booked via a Booking.com agency and though we booked a Classic room this resulted in us being allocated a standard room on the hotels system, the disappoinment was compounded by the allocated room being a twin room with the beds zipped together, but still with single duvets. The beds also came apart in the night resulting in a uncomfartable nights sleep for both myself and partner. As we arrived late on the Saturday evening due to the weather conditions we were intially offered alternative accomodation in the lodge 100m's away there was 4inches of snow outside... I found the duty manageresss was totally unsympathetic to the point of being rude, we were close to leaving the hotel at that point. We were allocated another room the next day but it did taint the start of the stay. I have grown up in this area and the hotel was always a place I wanted to share with my girlfriend, the setting is stunning the River Tay is in full view, and compliments the excellent breakfast each morning. Try the smoked haddock and poached egg, absolutely perfect. We were unable to dine in the evening at the hotel due to family comittments, but we did look through the menu and I would dine in the future should we stay again. The waiting and bar staff are simply superb I have stayed in top hotels all over the world and they compare, nothing is to much trouble... from the waitress at breakfast to the night watchman serving late they were excellent! This is a unique country hotel, the service is superb, the rooms are quirky Classic rooms are stunning, one real area that needs improvement that has been mentioned before is the driveway leading up to the hotel, the view is stunning but the road surface is simply evil when you are driving a rental vehicle with a high excess you fear you will loose it....needs to be fixed asap!
