We chose this place through trip advisor ratings and we weren't disappointed! We arrived early but that wasn't a problem. A lovely warm house and welcome got our stay off to an encouraging start. It only got better from there, Mark and Claire and not forgetting Ellie go above and beyond to make sure everything is 100%. The breakfast is...

A beautiful, stylish, and relaxing stay, in a stunning suite, and hosted impeccably. From the moment of our arrival we have had an amazing stay, nothing too much trouble, a wonderful selection for breakfast...including gluten free and vegetarian. Aberfeldy and the surrounding area provide everything you could want, and the Balnearn Hotel is the perfect place to stay!

We have just spent a night here and had a pleasant stay but nothing wonderful. The welcome was ok but a bit rushed. The room as average. A very uncomfortable, extremely hard bed. The duvet needs replaced as the filling has completely disappeared in huge parts of it so we were cold during the night. It's an old house so...

Our room was extraordinarily large, very quiet and comfortable. Mark helped us up and down the stairs with our luggage and was a gracious host. My husband enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts.
