We stayed at the Balmoral for two nights during our holidays to Scotlands Highlands. One night on the way up and one night on the way back. The first night we had a room on the top floor. It was quite small, but adequate. Tea, coffee, etc plus fox's glacier mints! Lovely towels and bedding. The only problem was the shower, you had to run around to get wet!!!
Breakfast was very nice. Lovely full cooked and well presented. Staff very nice indeed and very helphull.
They have spent a lot on refurbishing the rooms and I would imagine they are oplanning on doing the reception and bar/restaurant area as well.
On the return journey we had a suite at the back and it was excellent. The shower was very good in this one!
I would highly recommend this hotel, we shall certainly use it again.

I had the pleasure of 5 nights in the Balmoral Hotel from 4th to 9th August 2010. My single room was great - a nice separate toilet/shower/wash basin room, and a room more than big enough for 1 person.

The room had a mini fridge and a TV (which I never had time to turn on), and a chest of drawers for my clothes.

The free Wi-Fi (ask in the Bar for the password to get into it) worked flawlessly the whole time I was there, and helped in keeping the eMail box somewhat under control as well as keeping facebook updated with pictures of the Moffat goings on.

A small table and chair would have made using the computer a bit more comfortable.

There are 2 restaurants in the building - the main one where food is served in the Bar - the food here was great - I had fish and chips too many times probably, but also had Lamb Chops one evening. And then the Fish and Chip shop with its own entrance - this was OUTSTANDING!!!!

Breakfast (including if one wanted to indulge a "Full Scottish Breakfast") was included in the Tarriff of £40 per night.

Next time I'm in Moffat I see no reason to look further than the Balmoral again!!!

Stayed in one of the courtyard cottages at the Balmoral Hotel which are perfect for families. Breakfast is served in the hotel which is very good and the cottages are serviced every day. I would say they have been recently refurbished and are very comfortable. Ate in the Hotel two night out of three. Good menu choices and extremely good value for money. Definately wortha visit and we will be back.

Used Balmoral as a stop in transit between Home Counties and Aberdeen. Ideal location for trip. Hotel easy to find, parking right outside. Warm welcome. Room far beyond expectations. Clean, fresh flowers, large screen TV, super en-suite. Meals here are very good indeed - and very reasonable - sending the weary traveller to a comfortable bed, happy. Breakfasts can only be described as excellent. In all, tremendous value for money which, in our view, is unbeatable

During our 4 night stay nothing was too much trouble for the staff. This is our second visit. The amount spent on painting cleaning and decorating is amazing. Already booked again 2011. I think that says it all

This is a regular stop for us on the way to Scoland for a meal. The food is always first class, good varied menu at reasonable prices. We included an overnight stay on this occasion and found the accomadation in keeping with what I expected. Comfortable, clean rooms, great breakfast, friendly staff. Oh and good beers as well. Sure to return.
