This is a fairly small pub but very popular with the locals. A few hotel rooms on the first floor directly above the pub. We stayed for 2 nights on Fri and Sat recently. Positives: Free parking and a friendly initial welcome. Walking distance to Bathgate town centre and train station which allows you to reach both Edinburgh and Glasgow... More

My friend and I stayed here as we were going to a wedding reception locally. On arrival the staff were very welcoming and carried our bags upstairs for us. The door at the top of the stairs has a security code entry system presumably to keep bar customers out of the rooms. Once through here there was a reception desk... More

I stayed over for one night and found it to be an excellent small hotel! The staff were absolutely first class, friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I had their family Room, (£75 per night) two large double beds and a large single all to myself, and loved it! :O) My room was over the Hotel's front door and the... More

We stayed at the Balbairdie in early May 2014 and it was the friendliest hotel we have stayed in. The staff and patrons were most welcoming towards us and made us feel at home. The restaurant served delicious food and certainly put up a hearty breakfast. Thanks to all at the Balbairdie for making us feel so welcome and taking... More

Booked in here because it looked quaint. I was a guest at a wedding in another venue.the room was quiet but can only be described as sad. The room had a standard double and a single bed. The linen was clean but needs replacing. The beds were both too hard and we woke up with sore necks. The shower room... More
