This is our 4th visit to Balgownie Estate and we really love this place. The rooms overlook the vines and are always beautifully maintained. The only downfall this time was our lunch at Raes Restaurant. On our last visit about a year ago we would have rated our meal at Raes as one of the best we'd ever eaten - and we talked it up to our friends who were travelling with us this time - embarrassingly - I'd have to say I've had better meals at the local pub. Service was painfully slow and the food less than average for a venue of this calibre, as an Accor member we received a discount and its just as well really because I'd have hated to have to pay a cent more than we did.
Nonetheless, I'd stay at Balgownie again any day, staff are friendly and the grounds are lovely, I'd just venture further afield for a good meal and theres no shortage of excellent restaurants in the Valley.
