We stayed at the Ballathie to celebrate my wife's birthday; the last time we were here was about nine years ago so we already had some wonderful memories of this special hotel. We were not disappointed. The setting is SO beautiful and the whole place has such a wonderful feel. There is no doubt the staff are a tremendous asset as without exception all are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. When relaxing in the lounge one evening we were even asked by the owner if we were being well looked after! Just one small gripe though - I asked weeks in advance if our evening meal could have something creative on the menu for my wife who is veggie. We did not want the usual suspects veggie lasagna etc. that we see everywhere when a chef cant be bothered to make an effort. The menu had just two standard veggie options which for a restaurant of this quality is pretty poor. Fair enough when I complained a very different veggie option appeared which was very well received! But we should not have had to complain to see quality and creative vegetarian options when the rest of the menu has exactly that. However, this did not outweigh a wonderful stay and given the opportunity we would visit again tomorrow.
