Being a little sceptical about staying in a b&b I had my concerns that we would feel cramped and feel as though we were intruding in somebody's home but I couldn't be anymore surprise. Owners are lovely welcoming and attentive but not in your face! The room was spotless, such comfy beds, lovely decor and the ensuite shower was fab!... More

Just had a lovely couple of days staying at the Balnearn. It's a beautiful house, very comfortable & clean (fab en suite bathroom. Shower was great!!) and the breakfast was lovely and HOT!! The lady serving breakfast (sorry don't know her name) was very friendly and couldn't have been more attentive. We would definitely recommend this B&B and we will... More

Super friendly owner and nice quiet rooms. Great breakfast cooked according to your order. Super good! I would recommend visiting this place. There was a distillery nearby with nice tours and ok restaurant with steak night. We also had a nice short walk 'The birks of Aberfeldy' (3,5km) (Popularised in a song by Robert Burns) with several waterfalls close by.

Beautiful house, lovely decor, great food and a warm friendly welcome. What more can you ask for! The Birks is just next door. A little tip is to walk round it clockwise, best way to see the waterfalls.

A good example of just how well a small hotel business can deliver an outstanding stay. The original house is charming, well maintained and well heated whilst retaining character features that are often a challenging balance to attain. My room in the older part of the original house was generous, clean and well appointed. The use of public spaces and... More

We have just returned from a two night break at Balnearn. The owners made us feel incredibly welcome in what is their beautiful home. We enjoyed walking the Birks and a lovely drive through Glenlyon. We stayed in the Lochtay Suite on the ground floor. It was very spacious, with an equally large bathroom. Very clean and comfortable and furnished... More

Very comfortable guest house - grand staircase and lovely original rooms such as the guest lounge and the breakfast room. No doubt bedrooms in the original house will be similarly of classic Scottish country style. Standard rooms in the modern extension equally pleasant and perfectly adequate for a short stay. Great winter value. Larger rooms available at cost and probably... More

We have just returned from a lovely weekend spent at the Balnearn where nothing was too much trouble and everything was just perfect. We were treated to the most delicious afternoon tea, which rivalled the best that Edinburgh has to offer, served in the comfort of the delightful guest lounge. This was our first stay here but would hate to... More

Just returned home from spending 2 nights at this B&B. This is by far the best B&B I have stayed in. We couldn't have wished for more. The room was perfect, the staff friendly and very helpful and the breakfasts were to suit all tastes and the quality of the food was excellent. We will definitely be back in Aberfeldy... More
