Standard room. Adequate parking. Whether u can have a scenic room or not depends on luck. We are on the ground floor and we face the tennis court. My friend's room on ground floor facing truck of a tree. Breakfast not cheap. The heated pool is not for proper swimming as it is very small.

Stopped for a wine tasting. The pourers were very friendly. We chatted for quite awhile. I only tried the reds. They were pretty good. The building and surrounding areas were quite pretty. The restaurant looked beautiful but we did not fine there

Beautiful and clean room with a beautiful spa, and gorgeous views from the room. The setting of the estate is wonderful with the sweeping hills and vines. Everything is perfect, would stay again in a heartbeat. Birdlife was magical to listen to in the early morning.

A very comfortable room of a good size. Clean and great staff. The room had a unique feature that I have not seen before. I large window to the bath room/spa! Resembling a bird bath. But a lot of fun too.

It's always a treat staying at Balgownie Estate. The rooms are always clean and have all the amenities you need. Staff are always friendly and helpful. I love that all rooms have a view and there is a cellar door.

We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to the Balgownie Estate team who were involved with our wedding on November 5th 2016.

Everything was handled with care to make sure we felt at ease; our food was kept warm... More

Though marketed as a high end resort, the reception area could do with a revamp as it was looking old and tired (chipped furniture, dirty windows with blow flies, very small area). Upon check-in that afternoon, one of the older reception staff was very hostile when the staff member who was checking us in asked her two questions about our... More
