Just had another return visit to The Hotel Balmoral. Always a joy to return. Lovely quiet hotel, great food and second to none service from all the team. The evening meal each night was great as was the breakfast. I wish every hotel was like this.

Just returned from a 3-night stay and will be returning before too long. Our experience was excellent from the time of our booking to when we left. Staff friendly and eager to be helpful, and our room was very quiet. Excellent value for money. Thank you especially to Nicky. L&P
