Kings Arms Hotel
Ranked #2 of 5 Ballantrae B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 23, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Kings Arms for two nights. This delightful Inn is family run, the room was clean and comfortable. The bar is well stocked and the beer was good, the restraint has a good menu, the food is excellent, with good portions at reasonable prising, I noted from other reviews that some found the food service slow. We did not find it to be so, but food that is freshly prepared; dos take a little longer than fast food, but is well worth waiting a little longer for. The staff is friendly and very helpful.
This is a great place to stop for a meal.

Such a boutique little hotel, country Irish food full of locals, so affordable unfortunately because I ate too much. We enjoyed the locals and a drink after dinner and walked to accommodation which was just grand.

Visited this hotel today with friends.I personally have been to this estab.many times and can honestly say that iit always meets my expectations of a good bar lunch.My friends were of the same opinion good food ,good sized portions and a happy cheery young lady to serve it whilst she also doubled up as the barmaid.This hotel has been on the go for years and I can recommend it thoroughly for good wholesome bar lunches.It has a good sized car park and a good range of draught beers and a good gantry of whisky.

I write this review to give a fair warning to whoever stays at this hotel......The rooms have smoking permitted signs on them, so if you don't mind the smell of stale tobacco on everything then you will be ok. Overall the stay was fairly pleasant but not worth the £43.00 for a single room.

Stopped in this friendly family run hotelwith my wife and young son on our way North to Glasgow and then the Highlands.
We were warmly welcomed and taken to our perfectly adequate room in this quaint village hotel.
We ate in the hotel and were pleasantly surprised by both the quality of food and the portions we recieved.
After a good nights sleep we awoke refreshed and ready for our onwards journey, I will definately be using this establishment again.

Room Tip: Our room was ideal...could not comment on others

This is an OK pub to stay in the on your way from somewhere to somewhere else.
It is clean and quiet and the food is good traditional pub fare.
It is handy for a walk along the coast but there is not much else to do in Ballantrae.

We ended up staying in the King's Arms because of our journey being disrupted by a snowstorm which stranded us overnight in Ballantrae. Managed to get a room and a decent meal here, and we were amazed at the warmth of the welcome, although due to vast numbers of people coming and going the staff were rushed off their feet.

The roads opened again the next day, but rather than continue our journey we stayed a secongd night, which was warmer and more comfortable than the first.

Could do withy a bit of sprucing up, but the warmth of the welcome and the quality of the service more than compensated.
