Our review

Anyone visiting Scotland will soon realise that the country’s architectural heritage is rich and varied. Many striking historic buildings are now businesses, including hotels and restaurants. Among these, there is a particularly special property in the scenic region of Fife that is today one of the country’s most beautiful hotels. Surrounded by 400 acres of manicured grounds lies Balbirnie House Hotel, a grade A listed Georgian mansion and four-star hotel renowned for its stunning weddings, attentive staff, beautiful rooms and innovative approach to luxury hospitality.

Balbirnie House has been the Scottish wedding hotel of the year for the last nine years and most recently was awarded “Europe’s Best Destination Wedding Retreat” by Haute Grandeur. Once you visit the property it is not difficult to see why, warm hospitality, attention to detail and personalised service are at the very core of the hotel’s day to day work.

Besides its majestic building and beautiful grounds, the hotel also boasts some of the country’s loveliest newly decorated luxury bedrooms and an outstanding restaurant providing fine dining style of food in an informal but elegant atmosphere.

The hotel overflows with character, the warm, pro-active and forward-thinking personality of the owners are reflected in the constant improvements, offerings and delightful surprises that guests have the chance to see and experience every time they visit. There is always something new taking place, always something to look forward to experiencing next time.

Dog lovers will be pleased to learn that Balbirnie House has a resident pooch called Balfour who is as special as the property itself. Balfour and the Balbirnie team welcome pets as special guests, they also have personalised items available to them.

If you are an ice cream lover, you will be delighted to hear that Balbirnie House makes some of the best ice cream in the country, available not only to guests but to other businesses in the region too. Make sure to try them in your dessert!

The experience you will have at Balbirnie House is one you will always remember, not only due to its comfortable and luxurious bedrooms and public rooms, personalised touches and excellent food but also because the hotel does feel like the family home it once was, one you enjoy spending time in and revisiting every chance you have.
