Our bedroom in the hotel annex was very peaceful, large and comfortable with the added bonus of a balcony overlooking the gardens and River Tay. Each night we retuned to immaculately cleaned rooms. Breakfasts were excellent, with a wide choice, served by friendly,efficient staff. Although we have had dinner in the hotel on a previous visit in February 2008, we chose this visit, as the days were longer and as we were travelling about visiting various local places of interest, to eat out .On our last evening however we did enjoy a bar meal from the all day menu which was served to us in the lounge. This was very enjoyable and again the service was excellent.
The situation of the hotel and views, the food was lovely.
Dining room far too quiet, could hear every mouthful swallowed and every chink of cutlery on plates....
The staff were excellent, Room was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent.
Booked a country house weekend but stayed in an annexe instead of the country house - it rained the entire weekend so this was extremely inconvenient. Also found that there were 4 choices for each course for dinner and wasn't sure I would enjoy any of them so we chose to eat elsewhere.
The hotel setting is beautiful, food is excellent
Service can be very slow. Room 15 nice but too small for a family plus one child
Only had breakfast which was fine. Welcome good, grounds good. Staff very good. Room comfortable and well laid out
The room smelt of cooking, don't think the Ballathie was designed as a hotel, more of a country house/fishing lodge and therefore working a commercial kitchen just makes the whole place stink. Get better extraction. Place needs a fair bit of money spent on it, decor tired, rooms need a lift. Think it probably is the right time to sell.
Peaceful. Good staff. Total environment. Riverside was a pleasant surprise after driving past the 'lodges'! I would return - that speaks volumes !
Disparity in standard of cooking - fist night excellent second night ok. Breakfast third morning indifferent.
the location was the best ever the colour of the trees and the river tay it was excellent
the room could have been a bit cleaner and the television channels kept breaking up
Only choice of four main meals, two being fish, one of liver, or duck.
We had a lovely stay and the staff were so very nice and pleasant and nothing was to much bother for them the room was beautiful.
Very nice hotel with friendly staff,lovely setting on banks of the Tay
Dinner was not up to the high standards of the rest of the stay
Fabulous oldy-wordly place.
As always the staff were extremely courteous and even when the power was cut off due to the gales they did their best to make my stay as comfortable as possible.
food and service really good ,staff exceptionally friendly and yet professional We stayed in the outer building which was good as it was situated right beside the Tay and we had a balcony.It was a nice walk to the main building which is beautiful and umbrellas are provided but were not needed during our stay.
could use a plan of grounds - the outer accommodation location would have been helpful as I was unsure before my arrival what to expect.
Excellent food and service. We were given room 2 which is a lovely room on the first floor.
The hotel was very quiet. We stayed on a Friday night and there had been a wedding the day before and there was due to be another wedding on the Saturday.
Room 17 Riverside was excellent with a lovely small balcony overlooking the River Tay. The room was clean, bright and airy.
Structured routes with paths through the estate would have been advantageous for those who like a stroll in the grounds.
