“Lovely, beautiful place!!!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

We were in 24th of February and I don't think we could choose something better!!! Absolutely stunning views, superb service and perfect accommodation! Not often you will get feather bedding, white company bathroom amenities and bathroom facilities like that!!! Breakfast with most amazing view and 5* service! We absolutely love it!!! Will be back one day definitely!!!!
If you looking something amazing don't miss it!

We have stayed here twice, in room 6 and room 8. Both times the service was faultless, the staff were friendly and informative, the rooms were spotlessly clean, the beds super comfy and breakfast was to die for. The location is second to none, the views are wonderful and I cannot wait for our third visit!

Room Tip: Both rooms 6 and 8 have excellent views

We had a lovely stay here. The room was clean and cosy and the bed was very comfortable indeed. The view over the loch was stunning. Breakfast was delicious. The fruit salad was so good and the french toast to die for! There were nice places near by for an evening meal and we were able to bring a take away meal back one night and relax in the dining and lounge area. The staff were all friendly and helpful, we would recommend Balmacara Mains Guesthouse to anyone and would love to stay here again.

Perfect! Located on the bank of the Loch, the setting of this guesthouse is ideallic. Accommodation was clean, and contained everything we needed along with a couple of extra touches, it was particularly nice having a separate entrance to our room. Breakfast was incredible, french toast and bacon was the best start to the day. We're already booked in for 2013 and can't wait!

Room Tip: Great having a room with a separate entrance so didn't feel to be distrubing anyone if you came...

On the evening of our arrival we were promptly met and shown to a clean, spacious room. After a good nights sleep we had breakfast while watching the sun rise over the hills. The full Scottish breakfast was excellent which set us up well for the next leg of the journey.


We would certainly stay here in this lovely location in future if we are looking for accommodation.

This guesthouse is situated right on the loch, nice surroundings. When we arrived there was a man who said the manager was away and he had to hold the fort. He asked us several times if we had come to the right place (strange humor?), but he did manage to get a key for our room. The room was very comfortable, nice modern style. And from the small window in the roof we could see the loch, but it was quite a small window (and because of the angle you can not see the loch when you sit on the bed).
