On the surface this is a comfortable B&B in a cute village. We took up two rooms being a family of four and the rooms were a simple and had good beds with nice bed sheets and mattresses. The room decor was bland though and lacked a sense of comfort. The double room had a desk which appeared clunky and... More

My boyfriend booked us in the Balnearn House for 2 nights and I only wish we could've stayed longer! The house is very grand with high ceilings and a beautiful 'Scottish Country' feel throughout yet cosy and very homely... The room we were in (room 9) was a good size, very well furnished and had a modern en suite with... More

We enjoyed our stay of four nights, and given the wet spell, the Tay Suite was the room to have...spacious, high ceilinged, large and well appointed bath. The owners are lovely; the location perfect...near the center but opposite the forest trail. The breakfasts are more than ample. The porridge with honey a treat. The menu was traditional.

I took my son to Aberfeldy for some off road driving and stayed here overnight. We got a very warm welcome and were shown to our room. The room was spotless and very fresh. Great shower! We had a fab breakfast served by really nice and polite staff. All in all a great stay and excellent value. Highly recommended.

Fantastic stay in perfect place. Even got a packed lunch to take us straight back to childhood. Now off to attempt to recreate the pancake breakfasts. Don't expect to succeed :) A standard exterior belies the quality of the inside.

Beautifully cooked and presented and set us up for a day of exploring. Balnearn House is ideally situated within walking distance of the town centre which offers an array of attractions.

Booked this literally half an hour prior to arrival while sat in a car parking having found out that our planned and booked accommodation no longer existed. Turned out to be an excellent move as suspect this was significantly better. Very handy setting, easy car parking and very good breakfast. Staff very helpful
