We visited the Balintore Inn whilst touring in Scotland, we were staying in a nearby B&B for the night and this was recommended to us. The food was very nice and the staff and locals friendly. There was a band playing in the evening so we also had some welcome, if unexpected entertainment. Would visit again if in the area.

Room Tip: Can't comment as we did not stay overnight.

The Balintore Inn is my local place to go. Every meal I have had there has been great. There is a wide variety of food to choose from & has really good vegetarian options. The staff are very friendly & helpful. Music nights are great. If you are going to one of the music nights, go early have dinner & get a table. It gets very busy.

We stayed at the Balintore Inn for three nights last month when we were attending a friend's wedding nearby. This is one of the best Inns we have stayed in with a lovely warm welcome from Mike and his staff. The food was great, the quirkiness was tremendous, (a pair of Shetland ponies grazing in the beer garden of an evening!) and a simply stunning location - our bedroom looked directly out onto the Moray Firth. Not to be missed.

Room Tip: Ask for the room overlooking the Firth - incredible!

I think I am being spoilt in life. Our first choice did not have any vacancies and we were given the Balintore Inn as an option. Best option I have been given in years, the food was so so so good and the service from the team was brilliant. We arrived late and the kitchen was closed, we asked if possible and we were pleased to be offered the menu. Rogan Josh and Garlic Buttered Duck along with Mac and Cheese for Darius. The food was not what I expected and was truly exceptional along with the room and the price it was a very good deal and I would and will recommend it to anyone.

Opps I nearly forgot Breakfast, just a continuation of what we had for dinner, thanks to all for a great time.
