“Home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

I stayed in the Balmashanner b&b while i was working away from home, my stay was just short of a month and i didnt want to leave! Rob and Marie were very friendly and catered for my every need. I opted for an evening meal rather than breakfast as im up early everyday and I was NOT dissapointed. the food was lovely, home made and very varied, I never had the same meal twice! I'm hoping to back up here soon for another job and i will booking straight back up! Thanks!

My fiance is currently working in Kirriemuir so is staying in the Strathmore room on a long term basis. I have visited him 3 times and always had a warm welcome, even for my boisterous bulldog who comes with me. Breakfast was lovely and the loan of a bathrobe was much appreciated. Great walks in the surrounding area. Recommended!

I was hoping to book accommodation for some friends visiting and wanted to book all rooms for 2 nights. I phoned and was told they were all available for my dates. I asked if I could see a room and was told they were all occupied. As I live locally I asked them to call me when a room was available for me to see. "We don't do that!" was the reply.
I asked "don't you want my business?" They said "no we don't need it"

(The customer is usually wrong!)

We loved the country style building and interiours. The owners are very friendly and the service is excellent. Good wholesome breakfast. We would go back there anytime and highly recommend a stay there.

Room Tip: The Lour room is a very spacious, comfortable room.

What a great find, totally fab B&B, secluded and quiet, but a hop and a skip from town, perfect as I was on a business trip.
A fantastic warm welcome, even the electric blanket was on, joy of joys. Breakfast was awesome, freshly cooked to perfection and served in my room.

This wonderful B&B is now on my radar and have already booked for my next business trip.
Amanda.

Room Tip: If you require an evening meal make your request when booking your room/s
