Guests have been leaving appreciative reviews of the new look Breadalbane Arms Hotel on TripAdvisor:
‘Like a good quality budget hotel. Looks like it’s had some improvements over the past few months; the paint in my room was almost still wet! Very clean and tidy room and new fittings and fixtures. A bit noisy being single-glazed and on the market place, but I always carry earplugs. From the outside, it’s looks very tired but hopefully this’ll all be part of the makeover.’
‘Light on the pocket. The hotel is undergoing a basic refurb in the Travelodge style. The room was spotless, everything worked and the staff were polite and helpful. The cost was reasonable and I would certainly return again.’
Under two hours from Glasgow or Edinburgh, Aberfeldy is a convenient location for a short break.
