Ballantrae Hotel
Wonderful price and Location
Amazing location and no car room but 2 sets of stairs can be a bit difficult at times .

Cheap and cheerful! Comfortable beds
Good points: very clean room and comfy mattress. Decor is ok but nothing special. Location is good with only a 5 min walk to station. Bad points: breakfast is very basic, wouldn't waste your money. Service was average and the windows wouldn't open properly.

I had booked a night on the 30th November as a treat for my sister and to go to the Christmas markets, unfortunately shortly after arriving we had to head home as my daughter had taken ill and ended up in hospital , hopefully get to stay another time . The lady on reception was lovely and kindly organised a taxi for us . The room we had was spacious and clean , the stairs up to it was hard going though as we where at the top .

We had a lovely overnight here but a couple of things could be improved upon. At the time of our visit November 2018, the car park was unable to be used due to a tree being felled in the car park. This meant finding alternative parking and paying highly for it. It would help if the hotel could provide directions to alternative low cost parking or notify you prior to your visit about the car park being out of use. The room itself was lovely, very nicely decorated and they provided everything you needed. The en-suite were also very nice. Personally I was just a bit disappointed with the mattress, it was quite hard and I felt it would benefit from a mattress topper to make your stay more comfortable. Other than that we had a pleasant stay there.
