My boyfriend surprised me for our anniversary & booked us one night at Ballathie House. From the beginning it was just dreamy, the drive in to the hotel was lovely we felt we were a million miles away from anything, perfect for what we were looking for. Upon arrival we were greeted instantly by a lovely member of staff, although I do feel she could have been a little more informative, for example showing us where everything was located in the main hotel building, as later we heard a different member of staff showing around another couple who were checking in & we both said it would have been nice to have received that information upon our arrival. We were given room 16 in the riverside building I was absolutely in love with! It was beautiful, the decor was lovely and fresh & the room was bright and spacious. The bathroom was big & very clean. We absolutely loved the balcony aswell, being able to sit out and look directly onto the river was just wonderful. We also liked the comfy white robes provided too & sat out on the balcony in them enjoying our tea. The grounds were absolutely stunning and my boyfriend and I loved spotting all the different birds and animals around too. We chose not to dine for dinner but we did have breakfast the next morning which was lovely, I enjoyed the granola and fruit. The staff were attentive and helpful. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay so much that we felt so saddened to leave! One night just isn't enough and we were already planning our next visit before we had even checked out. I think the hotel would benefit from having a spa and massage/beauty parlour of such because it really is such a peaceful place, i think a spa and massage would have been the cherry on the top of what was an amazing stay. If you are looking to escape the harshness of city life I would recommend a weekend at Ballathie House, you will leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and cleansed. Stunning grounds, picturesque and peaceful. Could not have had a better surprise or anniversary present!
