“Nice hotel but could be more welcoming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2003

Stayed there for two nights in November 2003. Balcary Bay Hotel is at the end of a single track road with fine views out over the Solway Firth.

The hotel is very comfortable - warm and peaceful. On the positive side, the hotel is in a nice location and the food is superb (if not cheap!) However, we felt that there was a distinct lack of interest in the guests displayed by the owners. It was not a hotel we would recommend for its welcome. (Saying that we found the waitresssing staff great.)

Overall, a nice break but the lack of friendliness would not make us inclined to return.
