May 2014 - independEnt hotel of the year

Ballathie has just been awarded one of the Scottish Hospitality Industry's most coveted accolades - Independent Hotel of the Year 2014 at the Catering in Scotland (CIS) Excellence Awards.

The CIS Excellence Awards has become established as one of the most important and well respected award programmes in Scotland recognising and rewarding true excellence.  Judged by some of the most prominenet chief executives, chairmen, hoteliers and chefs in the industry, those nominated are up against the stiffest of competion.

The CIS Excellence Awards' judging panel found Ballathie to be a "successful, stand-alone establishement located in Scotland which possesses a 100% commitment to guest satisfaction". Amongst other qualities they looked for a hotel which demonstrated without doubt that they "recognise the importance of staff and skills development as essential elements of the business"

"Being named Independent Hotel of the Year is a huge credit to my management team and all the staff who work tirelessly looking after our loyal customers" says Jody Marshall.  "It is a great achievement and an honour to be holding this award on behalf of the team at Ballathie".



Ballathie is delighted to announce winning the Best Cheeseboard in Scotland and the UK.

The award was recently announced at the British Cheese Awards in the village of Churchill near Oxford in the heart of the Cotswold hills.

"It was a very pleasant surprise. We weren't expecting to win such an honour because of the popularity of the Awards and huge number of entrants," said Ballathie's General Manager, Jody Marshall.

He added: "It's the latest example of the great culinary strides we're achieving at Ballathie to make it a major dining destination. Cheese is part of Britain's food heritage and an important part of a meal."

Ballathie offers a minimum of 13 cheeses on its dinner trolley. Head Chef Scott Scorer also makes the hotel's own soft cheese and biscuits, bread and chutney.

More than 180 makers entered 910 different cheeses in the Awards which this year celebrated their 20th anniversary and launched British Cheese Week. 

The award, based on reports from cheesemakers, cheese lovers and diners, is the most prestigious award set up to acknowledge and reward those in the hospitality industry with the best quality, selection and inspiring British cheeseboard.

It was the second year in succession that Jody had carried off the top cheeseboard award which he won last year at the Summer Isles Hotel at at Achiltibuie in Ross-shire.
