I stayed at Ballathie House Hotel on 24th July 2010, with my husband, parents and brother. We'd spent the day Caterham driving for my dads 60th, and as Ballathie's just 10 mins up the road from Open Road Hire, we thought it'd be the perfect place to stay and have dinner.
The staff were pleasant, the evening meal was delicious, and the rooms in the main house are lovely, with huge bathrooms.
However, our stay was let down somewhat by breakfast. There was a continental buffet, with 'seasonal fruits' - however, despite it being July in Perthshire, there was not a raspberry or strawberry to be seen - disappointing. In addition, the pastries were those really rubbish mini croissants and pain au chocolat.
Furthermore, the 'freshly cooked' breakfast, which was supposed to be cooked to order, amazingly arrived about 5 mins after we'd ordered it. 'Wow!' I hear you say, 'quick service'. Yes, that's as may be, but only because everything apart from the eggs had obviously been sitting under a heat lamp for some time, it might as well have been sitting out as a buffet. In addition, the sausages were inedible - I did think they perhaps just not to my taste, however the other 2 members of my party who'd ordered them, felt the same.
Very disappointing for the winner of Scotland's Rural Restaurant of the Year.
