Loved Balgownie Estate! The location is amazing and the staff are very helpful. It was great to receive free wine tasting and a discount on wines purchased. Would highly recommend.

Nice resort but the restaurant was a let down . Breakfast is not fresh , and very limited options. Especially the fruit plate does not look appealing at all

The accommodation was beautiful. Booked a wine tour through the reception and they were able to drop us off to the first winery which was great. We were told to be ready to be picked up from the last winery at 315pm. The pick up person did not arrive until 420pm. This was quite a long time to be waiting in the sun. I phoned the reception at 340pm and the lady said the pick up person will be 10-15mins. We later found out that the person picking us up was in the middle of a private tour. It would’ve been great if the two tours could’ve been booked separately.
