Stayed here for a week and it was perfect for us. Very friendly and helpful guy on reception, rooms very tidy and fairly modern, cleaner everyday, right in the town centre for food and drink and train station a few minutes walk. Would recommend and stay again.

For £42 a night you can't expect much but in all my stays in guest houses and hotels I have never been told you can only have your towel changed once a week so that's six showers using the same towel, Also only heating is electric blow heater which leaves you dry and groggy

I booked single use of a double room for six nights in New Year's week, and was allocated a first floor room effectively in an extension which the surly receptionist told me on arrival she knew was a cold room. The usual electrical heater had been broken for some time (according to the housekeeper later in week), and two small... More

I stayed at the Balmoral on the 19th of December 2014 through to the 23rd, our stay at the Balmoral as always was excellent. The Guest House is very clean, comfortable and welcoming. Due to a few personal problems our stay was extended and the manageress could not do enough to help us, amazing customer service, would defiantly recommend and... More

This guest house has a nice and helpful staff. My son and I were in room 3 which was smelly and humid and a bit cold. But the location is right next to the Railway station and the center of the city, which was nice.

I am writing this review only to warn potential guests about the parking situation, which unfortunately ruined my stay at the Balmoral guest house. The hotel itself is fine, cheap, well located and as expected very basic poorly decorated rooms, but clean and fairly comfortable (apart from my friends complaint of an uncomfortable mattress). Myself and two friends had planned... More

I needed a place to stay while visiting my daughter at university and this was perfect. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the kitchen area was an added bonus. I was very pleased at how easy it was to book and the service on the phone and when I arrived was lovely. No hesitation in recommending - and I'll... More

It is true that you get what you pay for, and this is fairly basic, but a lot better than what I was expecting from a town-centre victorian conversion. It doesn't look that inspiring from the outside, but at these prices who cares? What mattered was that the room was very clean, it felt recently refurbished, spacious, new furniture, simple... More
