Really nice hotel. the decor was very good. We had a room with a sea view The room was very spacious and the bed was huge. I cannot comment on the food as we didn't eat there. The facilities were good with a very smart guest lounge. The outside garden was large with plenty of chairs and tables to sit... More

We have been staying at the Balmoral on and off for the last 23 years. It's is always clean and tidy and since Alex and co have taken over it has been updated to a good standard. The food as always was very good with good choices. The only thing I would say is that this time the bedroom was... More

We stayed at the Hotel Balmoral in April - we are a couple away for a business/pleasure trip. First thoughts....dated and a bit 'old peoples home' but clean, tidy and friendly - which are massive positives but the squeaky beds and floor boards soon lose their quirkiness! We were pleasantly surprised that there was entertainment on the Friday night by... More

Perfect location for the beach or the town if you don't mind walking. Excellent price for B & B and if you want dinner you can get 5 courses thrown in at a very reasonable cost. We stayed 2 nights and the evening meal was different on both days. Quite a good choice of starters, mains, desserts and cheese and... More

Stayed at the Balmoral for a weekend in March and had a nice relaxing time. The weather was good, which always makes a break enjoyable, and the food was excellent. 5 courses each night. The staff were very good, nothing was too much trouble but they were not "in your face". The position of the hotel is very good, a... More

This was our second visit to the Balmoral. The hotel can not be faulted. All staff very friendly and polite, all rooms spotless, food as always wonderful,and entertainment both nights catered for everyone. I really can't see how they can do all this for such a great price.

Had our normal weekend break and as usual the food was great and the staff could not be more helpful. Our room had had a completely new bathroom fitted. Good entertainment on two evenings during the weekend.Hotel has a very friendly atmosphere and many visitors were ones that had been several times before.
