Stayed overnight at Balintraid House while on a motorcycle tour. This proved to be one of our favourite places to stop. The premises are immaculate and the owner could not have been more helpful, including making reservations for dinner at a nearby restaurant and booking taxis etc.

I stayed in one of the single rooms as opposed to the dormitory and it was excellent.

Highly recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Balintraid. Anita who manages the hostel was really very nice and went to every effort to ensure we were happy and comfortable, she was more like a host than a hostel manager. She kindly upgraded me to a large double room with a wonderful view of the Firth. The room was great - clean, fresh towels and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen were clean. It is a brilliant house with a lot of character but as myself and my friend were the only residents (and staying in separate rooms) it was a bit creepy at night. Although there really was nothing to be afraid of. I would definitely recommend this hostel and I would stay again although not if I was travelling alone (only because of my own fear!).

Room Tip: 'Rainbow Room' is a large double room with a view of the Firth. Very comfortable bed.

Balintraid is the perfect Guesthouse for travellers on a budget (and of course others as well :-) ) Anita is a great hostess, friendly and caring and the house is just magical. The room (I was upgraded to a greater one with view of the garden) was clean and tidy, linen and towels were fresh and clean as well. The house itself and the garden (with view of the Firth) is great and there is also a large community kitchen for self-catering. The shared modern bathroom and shower were great as well! I had a perfect stay!

We stayed here whilst on an 'end to end' cycle ride. The kind lady upgraded us to the double room as it was empty and thought we needed it. The house was absolutely beautiful, showers were clean and the room was amazing!
