My wife and I travel widely and after much deliberation chose to make a first visit to the Balbirnie House Hotel to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and stayed for three nights, eating each evening in the Orangerie restaurant.
We have to say that we are so pleased that we chose the Balbirnie to mark our special occasion. Our late booking was handled very efficiently and we received a warm welcome on our arrival. The congratulations card from the staff was a lovely touch.
Every single member of staff we encountered, from Reception, to the young man at the bar for a pre-dinner drink, to the waiters and waitresses in the restaurant, to the room cleaning staff always had a smile on their faces and provided a warm, friendly yet very professional service.
When staying in a hotel there is usually something that you find not quite right and which could be improved a little, but this really did not apply to the Balbirnie in any way. It is that good.
Thankyou to the owner and every single member of staff for helping to make our special few days so memorable.
We hope to return at some stage and also hope that this honest and objective review helps other potential guests in the future.
