Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reminded me why I haven't stayed in a b&b for circa 20 years and unlikely to ever again. We left early to deal with something at home but really would have stayed the duration if we had been enjoying our stay. Pros were nice local beach and the relatives who use the stables, who were very welcoming with their 4 dogs.

We stayed at Balnabrechan Lodge for 3 nights whilst attending a wedding locally. What a great find such a lovely place to stay and nothing is too much trouble for Jules, so friendly and helpful ( thanks Jules!). Breakfast was delicious with a great selection of foods made available for us to help ourselves to. Everything you can think of is provided. Easy walking distance to the beautiful Lunan Bay beach. Highly recommended.

Jules the owner went out of her way to make me welcome and ensured I had everything I needed. Her breakfast was very generous and you help yourself to food in the breakfast room. The bedroom, bathroom and breakfast room were very comfortable. Lots of hot water.
