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

We stayed here due to recieving a gift of a spa day at Moness, we decided to make it a weekend away. The Balnearn was by far the most reasonable for price and our expectations were realistic, however we were very happily surprised when we arrived. The Balnearn had a friendly welcome , which continued throughout our stay. To be... More

We enjoyed our weekend staying here and got a good value deal. Really enjoyed the large lounge, nothing better than relaxing with the fire blazing, a good book and a glass of wine to pass a few hours. Beautiful scenery around here, Kenmore is lovely and cream tea at the Kenmore hotel was fab. Birks of aberfeldy for lovely walk... More

This is an imposing small hotel situated close to town in a lovely part of the world. Everything was just so well run and friendly that it was a delight to stay here. Our room was a little on the small side, but with so many other options both inside and outside, this wasn't a problem. Our party of eight... More
