Stayed here for one night 7th Nov whilst visiting friends in the area, was presently surprised as the previous reviews I'd read were not good. Check in super fast & shown to our room which had brand new crisp white sheets on the beds. Room & bathroom were dust free & spotless clean. Not really our type of place to... More

Rooms were dusty and dirty we had a wedding party so had booked out whole hotel no one of us had a clean room staff were more interested in looking after the bar regulars than attending to paying guests in hotel. When we booked we... More

My family room was huge, 2 double beds & a single - it was clean & tidy. Breakfast was... More

Remember those old Holiday Inn "no surprises" ads? Well, we like surprises when we travel. The Barbairdie doesn't disappoint there. We were checked in at the bar in the pub and the bartender drafted a couple of customers to carry our luggage up the stairs. We ordered beer for them later and were invited to join a rowdy family birthday... More

I've stayed 2 days with 3 left it the worst place I've stayed uncomfortable beds rusty radiators broken lamp towel rack, I had to get them to change the bedding as it was dirty from the last people. For travellers if you come of the m8 motorway there's a premier inn which is easier to find USE IT

The room was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful However, the room was dated and could do with a serious makeover. The tv was very small and there was no wifi. The major problem really was the noise from the bar. The karaoke machine played until 12.30 and the crowd finally started dispersing after one. To be fair... More

Food excellent good value, breakfast is UK continental in other words cereal/toast/ yoghurt but is ok to get you started. Rooms are basic but again ok l just wanted somewhere to stop before flying from Edinburgh Airport which was a far worse experience than anticipated a airport struggling with over capacity. We were told that the Balbardie is due a... More

The meal in the restaurant was excellent value for money and goodsized portions with A very friendly staff. Highly recommended But you might have to book as it very popular especially at weekends.It is very handy for the centre of the town.
