We visited this hotel with our family for a special occasion .We had previously enjoyed Scott Scorer food on another visit. On this occasion the food was very disappointing. Limited food options and very bizarre food combinations. The fish was overcooked the pasta under cooked and cold in parts. The food and beverage manager offered no apology even after we...

My husband and I, along with another couple, arrived at the hotel Saturday afternoon at 2pm and stayed till nearly 11 the following morning. We didn't want to leave. We loved the ambience of the hotel and it's old hunting lodge decor. We started with afternoon tea (the best in Perthshire in my book). Followed by drinks from the bar...enjoyed...

We had visited for lunch some years ago and always yearned to return for a stay. We were not disappointed. This is one of the nicest places we have ever visited in the world. We had rooms in the Riverside - they were great, superb beds and pillows, spotless, well appointed and a fantastic balcony overlooking the River Tay. We...

My husband proposed here and we thought, to be different, we would spend our anniversary here rather than where we were married as we loved our first visit to Ballathie so much and we obviously have fond memories. Although we enjoyed this overnight stay fine enough, it didn't quite equal the previous stay for various reasons. I'll get the critical...

We stayed one night on an Itison deal which was very reasonable for a classic room (23). The room was very comfortable and spacious with two chairs and very good décor mainly. Matching fabrics is a nice feature. Bed was extremely comfortable and a quiet night's sleep assured. To be picky, the bathroom was a little tired with some very...

We were given an overnight stay with breakfast as a wedding present on booking the hotel I was asked if I wanted a room in the hotel or a Riverside room, I chose the Riverside room as I thought the views would be lovely. I was phoned about 6 weeks before our arrival and was advised the hotel restaurant was...

The hotel website promises a lot - ultimate and unique, but the experience falls just a bit below that. We were attracted to stay having secured vouchers in advance but the rates in February are pretty reasonable anyway. The hotel is 'Scottish' country and set on a large estate that does not look to be well maintained now. We stayed...

We went to Ballathie for afternoon cream tea as a birthday treat for my mother. I expected it to be very well presented, tasty but with small portions and probably overly priced. I actually commented while travelling that we would probably need a fish supper on the way home. Delighted to report that it was indeed very well presented and...

Stayed at Ballathie House recently for a special night away. We were unfortunately not in the main building, but, were informed that our accommodation was in what the hotel refers to as the Riverside Rooms, the main hotel building is beautiful and has lots of character, the Riverside Rooms don't, in fact the building has all the character of a...

Dear John D, Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to post your review following your recent stay with us at Ballathie.
