We stayed 1 night at The Balmoral. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival and shown up to our rooms. Nice rooms, with great power showers. Breakfast the next morning was very good. Selection of cereals, yogurts and a choice from the menu of cooked to order breakfast. The view from the breakfast room was spectacular. The hotel is right on... More

Location could not be more beautiful. We stayed three nights, using Warrenpoint as a base for day trips. The scenery changed every day depending on the weather. Great restaurant and pub. Always ask about the size of the dishes served in the pub. I ordered a starter of beef ribs. It was huge. Breakfast was served in the restaurant overlooking... More

Stayed in a suite overlooking Carlingford Lough. Warm welcome from staff. Food and service in Restaurant 23 was excellent. Faultless. Guinness Wheaten bread is a must to try in the restaurant. Very relaxing atmosphere throughout the hotel. Great place to stay if like us you wanted to play at 2 great local golf courses Warrenpoint and Greenore. Will return.

Beautiful big room and bathroom (no hook for hanging clothes in bathroom though). Couldn't get TV to work properly. Skylight in bedroom with blind that didn't work meaning we were woken too early by light entering room. Breakfast was absolutely fantastic!

I'm unsure about certain aspects of this 'hotel'. We arrived mid afternoon not knowing what to expect. The reception area is simply a recess in the wall which isn't normally occupied. Finding this we went to the bar area where a barmaid said ' I'll be with you now'. We walked back round and in a coupe of minutes she... More
