A convenient location close to bus stops, and a level walk to the promenade and beach were just what we wanted.

The only problem was waiting for the lifts...

Just returned from the Balmoral Hotel and have to say that we enjoyed our visit there. Food was hot when we were there which I know was a concern for some recent visitors, however, whilst we were there we managed to find something at all meal times. Entertainment was based on a two week repeatable time table which meant that...
