Arrived at hotel and the grounds leading to it were beautiful. On arriving at reception we were advised that the Annex was just past the hotel down the road. The signs were not good as we passed shabby run down series of buildings in various bad states eventually to find the so called annex. The best way to describe this...

We stayed overnight in a Riverside Room. The hotel was very busy with two weddings but staff were still solicitous and efficient. Our room was well appointed with a door opening out near the banks of the Tay, which was ideal for our small dog. The furnishings were slightly dated and the carpet worn, but overall we were very happy...

Beautiful hotel in equally beautiful surroundings. Had a wonderful view of the river Tay. Breakfast was of a high standard. Worth every penny to stay here. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Some bad reviews had us worried, and so we were when we were shown the 'annexe'.Do not go there...very very average and only suitable for groups of young males going hunting and fishing.Met by the Food and Drinks Manager...what a star! Changed rooms to the main hotel...and found it to be first class.Great view over the Tay and a great...

We were with our theatre goers group for a 4 night stay. Our organiser did not tell us there was an annex so we were somewhat put out when we had to walk 5 minutes to our accommodation whereas most of our group were in the main building. One single woman had a sumptuous suite so I am really intrigued...

My wife took me here for my birthday along with my 3 month old daughter and my German shepherd dog rocky. It's a real hidden gem Ballathie, the staff are absolutely brilliant and very accommodating who were also very good with my dog. I would say that a lot of people would think that this hotel is a little dated...

We wondered as we drove back to Ballathie if it could be as good as last year. It was not! It was even better!! This time, our room was in the main house. No lift made it a little difficult for me to go to our room; all rooms in the house are first floor and some plumbing is old....
