Although we stay locally we hadn't dined in the Balbirnie Restaurant for many years. staff were all very pleasant, professional and nothing was too much trouble. Food was all well presented and adequate timings between courses. If you enjoy treating yourself then you shouldn't be disappointed at the Balbirnie Restaurant.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights (tried for 5 but were booked up at the weekend) From the moment of arrival with the reception staff to the bistro staff to the orangey staff we could not ask for more polite, friendly or helpful staff. The room itself was divine. The adjoining golf club were very accommodating. I can highly recommend Balbirnie House to anyone wanting to feel spoiled. X

We went here for my son's 42nd birthday with 19 members of our family, from great grand parents to one baby.
We had a Prosecco and canapé reception in the Long Hall and then a lovely big rectangular table in the garden room, with access for the children and, as it turned out Great Grandad, to the large grassy garden. This gave the adults respite and the ability to enjoy the food- four courses and coffee.
The food was very good and the service was excellent. We have done this before and would certainly do it again.
Thanks to Meghan and her team. We got exactly what we asked for and nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

Room tip: We didn't stay over but the garden room is excellent for big family outings.

We stayed one night at Balbirnie. The house is very impressive and has many lounges for its guests. Our room was ok: spotlessly clean, roomy, a nice bathroom and comfy bed. It faced out to the backyard and there was some noise from the airconditioning or something the like. It also had a slight old smell with a touch of cigarette smoke. Otherwis, nothing to complain though.
We also had dinner here, two well prepared burgers. Breakfast was delicious with a big choice from the buffet. All the staff is friendly and helpful. We were a biiiit disappointed of Balbirnie as we had expected a more personal stay. It really is a big hotel and when used to B@Bs not quite on the same level. But it is a good place along the way, nothing more or less.

We stayed the night here when we celebrated our friends wedding. Our room was lovely. The four poster bed was a luxury to us. Breakfast in the morning was fabulous. Lovely buffet plenty for everyone. However we didn’t think that the ensuite in our bedroom matched up to the rest of the experience. It was Very outdated which was a bit disappointing. Also it would have been nice to have been taken to our room when we arrived instead of being pointed in the right direction and still getting lost.
