The Hotel Balmoral was a lovely place to stay, eat and drink and we were very fortunate that the weather was very good too making this feel like a real holiday. The staff were universally friendly, polite and helpful and the food choices were very good. Sitting in the lovely garden with glimpses of the sea through the trees on... More
