We visited for a family wedding, spent two days and nights. The House and grounds are in a lovely setting with plenty of open space and parking over a few car parks, lots of places to walk about. The access is generally good with provision for disabled and pushchair access in and around the building. Our rooms were very spacious and we could control the temperature, though the building in public areas could get a little too warm at times. The food was very good and the hosts all polite and welcoming and the rooms were kept clean. We did wait too long for lunch one day, but apart from that everything was timely and the standard was very good. More...

Had a wonderful experience here at the Chef's Table which I would definitely recommend. You sit in your own room behind 1-way glass and can see the chefs hard at work making your meal! I don't think anywhere else in Scotland offers this. The food is delicious and considering the price is £37 you get a huge amount - 4 courses plus canapés. Also stayed overnight in a nice big room. I would call it if anything a bit tired rather than "dirty" as an earlier reviewer has claimed. It is down sort of listed building so that has to be taken into account. Breakfast was a lot more average than the dinner. Nothing is cooked to order etc. But still perfectly OK. More...

We visited Balbirnie, and stayed over, when attending a wedding here in September 2015. Admittedly, the weather was horrible, so we didn't have a chance to stroll in the garden (darn, lost my chance to run into Mr Darcy there! :)), which presumably is lovely. The hotel itself as well as the wedding venue was absolutely amazing. The room for the cermony was the perfect setting, so extremely pretty and romantic. In the hotel, I loved the old, wide stairs and our super luxurious room (we had a "normal" double). The room had such a peacefulness and tranquility to it, and it was very well isolated - no noise at all! Had the best night's sleep in ages here!The venue (ball room) was beautiful and good sized. Loved how they had decorated the room itself, as well as the table decorations. So pretty! Foodwise, I was pleasantly surprise. To be able to serve around 80 guests that good food, that's impressive. I had the veggie version, which actually might have been better than the meat one - very unusual and I was very happy about it. Breakfast the day after was yummy, loved the scrambles - you could tell they were made with lotsa cream!The only tiny thing that I was unhappy about was that the party had to close down at midnight (hello Cinderella fantasy!). There was a small bar in the library still open, but then it was more chilling with a few people, rather than partying. Still fun, but not just the same.If I had the money, I would totally book this for my own future wedding (if there would be one) and fly all guests here from Sweden. It was such a fantastic experience for us (the bride was also really happy), and I'd love to come here again. Note to self: Make friends with some scottish couples, preferably engaged ones. More...

I attended a close friends wedding here, and also stayed for the night in the triplex apartment. The building and grounds themselves are truly stunning. Often with these grand old country houses the initial impression is good, but upon closer inspection things are just under par. This is the case at Balbirnie. Everything was in the finest repair. The only complaint I really have is that during the wedding device the lawns were being cut, this seemed highly inconsiderate as the wedding party had booked out the entire hotel and the hotel were aware there was a wedding taking place. Aside from that minor niggle, the hors d'oeuvres were fantastic especially the cheese scones, the evening meal was also wonderful and the staff were exceptionally pleasant. One other small gripe, if I'm paying nearly £7 for a gin (Gordon's at that) I'd hope that it was a double. More...

Great hotel set in a beautiful park. The staff are extremely friendly and professional. We visited twice and ate dinner one evening in the 'Bistro' - the lower-priced restaurant in the hotel. The food was excellent with prompt service. The restaurant seems very popular and was full when we visited. The following day we had afternoon tea. First time I've started afternoon tea with a glass of prosecco. Sandwiches were great and the scones perfect. The macaroon's were really interesting. Very nicely done with superb service by Cameron. Seems like this is also a very popular venue for weddings. Bagpipes playing frequently ! More...
