Could be 4* but it's not!

Location, friendly staff
Stayed in the honey moon suite. This is a lovely big room with lots of character. I imagine a few years ago this room was lovely but it hasn't been maintained. There was a hole in the carpet, all furniture was scratched a d scuffed, big patch of flaking paint on bathroom ceiling, TV not working in bathroom, bits missing off tap. Hair on floor. Bed uncomfortable. We were looking forward to a drink in the bar but we're told that a separate company ran the bar and restaurant and had 'walked out' so this facility was not available. Staff were very friendly and helpful and location was very good. The hotel needs some general TLC to bring it back up to 4* standard. Just pleased it wasn't our actual honeymoon!

My wife's birthday stay.

The location, the room and the staff.
When we got to the Albany Ballantrae Hotel, we were upgraded straight away to an executive room, we both felt the original room we had booked on Agoda was value for money so the upgrade was even more welcoming. We also thought the room was very spacious and allowed us area to stretch out when needed. The Hotel on the whole was very clean. Very good location for all local amenities bars and shops. We highly recommend this hotel and we'll see you next year, 10/10 no hesitation. Missing Edinburgh and Albany Ballantrae Hotel already.

First time stay

The hotel is in a great location, is small and intimate and very children friendly
I stayed on business and found the location great for finding evening dining options outwith the hotel. The staff were very friendly and the hotel had character and a great ambience. The only downside was the downstairs bar not allowing items to be charged to my room as if it had nothing to do with the hotel!
