Me and my husband enjoyed a beautiful afternoon tea at the balmer lawn yesterday! We were very lucky to have the weather on our side and got to sit on the hotel terrace. The scones were delicious and so were the cakes. Staff very attentive and polite. Will definitely be back!

Visited for a staff event which consisted of a buffet lunch, afternoon spent in the spa or cycling for the more energetic and then an eventing meal in the restaurant. The hotel made all of the arrangements in advance. The food was excellent and the organised event was enjoyed by all.
