Balnearn House
Ranked #3 of 19 Aberfeldy B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Really impressed with this friendly B&B. Perfect if you're looking to find a stop on the Rob Roy route, and only a few minutes walk away from beautiful waterfalls. Think they have about 10 rooms, and they seemed pretty full, but staff always happy to please. Comfortable room and fab hot shower. Plenty of good eateries locally in town, west to Kenmore or east to Grandtully. It rained a fair bit, but Scotland looks beautiful whatever the weather!

This is a beautiful building, which sets the scene. Our room was large (although not all are) and hard to fault. Breakfast and general service were very good. A short walk to the main part of the town.

Part of me wants to give this place the worst review possible just to make sure it’s not full when I next want to book it but that would just not be in the spirit of TripAdvisor. Booked Balnearn because we were competing in the Colin McRae rally. We arrived quite late (after 20.30) but we were expected and the welcome from the owners was very warm. We stay is places all round the country and one of the biggest problems we have is paying for B&B but leaving too early on Saturday morning to get fed. Early breakfast, not a problem here. Two twin rooms booked (for 4 males) and they were excellent. I stay in hotels regularly for business and leisure and I think the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. One of the team was almost late because he spent so long in what he said was the best shower he had ever been in. I really can’t praise the service enough. Top marks all round.

Stayed for 1 night for the triathlon. Very accommodating for competitors and laid on early breakfast. Room was great. Quiet surroundings yet only minutes from the town. Rooms in the extension seem a bit more modern.

We stayed here on the recommendation of friends who had said it was the best B & B they'd ever stayed in. It really was lovely. We were warmly welcomed by Claire, and found that although both she and Mark were on hand for queries, we never felt like we were intruding in someone else's home.

Our room was really spacious and nicely decorated. The residents lounge was also a real bonus, giving somewhere to relax if not wishing to be out all day/evening. Breakfast was of very good quality - thoroughly enjoyed the freshly made porridge and the range of cooked options. Well worth a visit!

Stayed here for a brief 1 night stay in Aberfeldy for the triathlon. Both hosts were very friendly and welcoming. They were offering an early breakfast for those doing the race. I was only spectating so enjoyed mine at a more leisurely hour - the porridge and fruit was very nice. Room was clean and comfortable. Good location only a minutes walk down to the high street, ample parking. All in all a great B&B.

This is a lovely and very comfortable place to stay. From my experience of one stay here, only the fussiest of guests would be likely to find anything to criticise. The owners went well out of their way to accommodate the needs of our family with 3 small children, including us coming down very late for breakfast each day and having complicated dietry requirements. Our rooms were very modern, clean and nicely furnished in a contemporary style. Extremely comfortable bed. Our bathrooms were superb. Definitely a place to return to and to recommend strongly to others.
