Ballathie House Hotel is set in beautiful, accessible grounds. The welcome was warm and genuine, despite the hotel being very busy. The food is second to none, with the 5 course dinner being a particular treat.
Our Riverside rooms were of a good standard, very clean and well equipped, the beds comfortable and clean.
The staff of the hotel are cheerful and efficient. A special mention for Susie and Michael, who were so pleasant and attentive.
We will definitely be back - first class all round.

This was a return visit and we enjoyed one night dinner bed and breakfast in the main building. Allowance needs to be made for the hotel being open during partial lockdown and the challenges thrown up by that. Health security measures were in place in the public parts and the dining and bar areas. We had a comfortable sleep, an excellent dinner and a decent breakfast. The food made the trip worthwhile. Well cooked and presented with a reasonable choice of dishes. Full marks to the staff who we thought were efficient, charming and courteous while operating under difficult circumstances. The main building (like many Scottish Country House Hotels) has a slight air of decayed gentility which either appeals to you or it doesn't. We quite like it despite the plumbing fittings in the en suite being older than me (I'm retired!). The view over the river is attractive and there are lovely walks in the grounds with a good prospect of spotting red squirrels. All in all it's a nice place to stay for a short break and excellent food.

Room tip: The main building has more atmosphere than the outbuildings but is less modern.

Excellent location, excellent staff, exceptional service and the food is to die for, what more can we say? Covid rules followed and we felt protected. Room cleanliness was excellent. For our 5-day stay we wished we had stayed the full 10 days instead of moving to the Dunblane Hydro which was priced very similarly and didn’t come anywhere near the Ballathie House ethos. Absolutely SUPERB stay, thank you to all. Special thank you to Ini, head waiter, barman, all round good guy.

We had a two-night stay in a Riverside room and cannot speak highly enough of the experience. The room itself was spacious and quiet with a nice river view and the main hotel was just a pleasant short walk away. The food was exceptional. Due a special word of praise is restaurant manager Jalal, who headed an extremely polite and efficient team. They provided the finishing touch to a memorable stay, which we will definitely repeat.
