          We attended a wedding and the location was great, the service from staff during the wedding was first class. The food could not be faulted. The grounds are part of the larger Balbirnie Park which offered nice walk in the morning before departing. There is also a golf course with in the park.

          The breakfast in the morning was terrible. Lack of bowls, hot food and staff. When the eggs ran out we waited ages for a member of staff to appear, then longer for feash eggs, by this time more guests arrived, and they brought 5! I have had better from a budget hotel.

          Staff welcoming and friendly. Food and service was very good in Orangery restaurant - though expensive

          Would like gym facilities in a hotel of this standard. Bistro resturant was noisy - requires more soft furnishings to reduce noise.

          The hotel building and the setting

          Only thing missing was a pool etc but I believe the plans for that were put on hold due to the economic climate.

          Lovely room, breakfast excellent, bistro food excellent, friendly and helpful staff, picturesque grounds and walks

          5.0

          Staff were helpful and polite.

          Room was old, the carpet was dirty, the towels were dirty and the bathroom was not up to standard for a 4 star hotel.

          Relaxing stay, well trained courteous staff, wonderful country house and grounds

          Great service, good food, enormous scottish breakfast.

          Although there was no heating on in my room it was very hot even with the window open, this made sleeping uncomfortable. Also the spa was closed.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Staff were excellent-very friendly and helpful- the whole visit to the hotel was very enjoyable

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Able to control room temp. as weather had turned wet and cold. Also plenty of lounges to relax in. Everything was excellent +will return

          Pebbles on entrance to hotel are very awkward to walk on and ruin heels on ladies shoes. This hotel should have a pool and spa it would then be absolutely heavenly. Mentioned both these points to staff.

          Was there for a wedding

          Even though we asked for rooms for the main wedding guests to be ready slightly earlier they won't and we where given inaccurate information to when they would be ready.

          Lovely room, and Gardens.

          Very disppointed with the food. The main Restaurant was closed, and the food in the Bistro extremely limited. Further, there was not enough food for the number of guests. The first 3 courses my wife chose were already finished.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Pleasant surroundings and very helpful staff

          Choice of two or three courses from Orangery menu would probably have been preferred.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          The peaceful location of the hotel set in its own grounds together with the elegant grandeur of the hotel itself. Attentive and polite staff. Although the hotel is seemingly tucked away, the main road network is close by and easily accessed.

          One (junior) member of staff was a little short of expertise and wasn't quite as helpful as he could have been when allocating us a breakfast table for 4 when there were only tables set for 2. However this was more of a surprise than an annoyance and was such a contrast to the general level of consideration and efficiency displayed by his colleagues. However, I would expect such shortcomings amongst the staff are shortlived before being remedied. Friends travelling as a group might be disappointed by the possibility of significant differences in the size and amenities of their respective rooms even though in the same price bracket, but this is an unfortunate feature of staying in what was designed as a grand mansion rather than a hotel.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Comfortable, relaxed ambience and pleasant courteous staff

          TV digital signal was poor. Picture kept freezing but was not a problem in our case because it was only used for news items

        • Older travelers

          Attended a wedding as a guest - excellent facilities and friendly and efficient staff. A great experience.
