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

We enjoyed a Saturday and a Sunday night in November, 2013 at The Balbairdie. We found every staff member to be exceptionally pleasant and welcoming. From the time for cleaning our room to what we would like for breakfast, the service was nicely personalized. Our bedroom and bathroom were very clean and comfy and were much larger than what is...

We were unfortunate enough to stay in this 'hotel' last night. We booked a room here as my best friend was getting married at the registry office in Bathgate and it looked nice in the website photos. As we were staying there and it was near the reception venue, the bride and groom also decided to book a room along... More

I have just returned from staying here and I have to say it was poor, very poor. My room was bordering on disgusting (see photo's), at least the bed linen was clean or I would have left there and then. There was noise from the pub below and from the smokers outside so be prepared for the colourful language and... More
