My wife picked this hotel for a nice week-end in the Spa/Liege area. The hotel is in quiet area surrounded by trees from the neighbouring forest or properties (I could not tell for the neighbours of the hotel are actually a few villas with large properties around). The road is located slightly higher than Spa's city center. To reach the city you will definately need the car.
We stayed in a superior room (# 169). It was a very nice room with TV, fridge, airconditioning, big bathtub and separate shower. The shower was very big, with pierre bleue on the walls and a large shower head on the ceiling giving you that lovely waterfall effect. The room was on the backside, with view overlooking the garden. I recommend it for it was very quiet and comfortable. Breakfast is what you expect: large selection between ham/salami/cheese, cereals, yoghurt, fruits, bacon, mushrooms, sausages, potatoes, eggs. The staff can also cook you pancakes or omelette if asked.
The breakfast/dining area is in two parts: one part inside, the other one in a connected veranda. I found this last one very nice for you have more light and view on the garden. We had dinner in there one evening, a menu that was part of our booking. Nice food, good service and good wine selection with reasonable price (same or less than in a restaurant/brasserie in Spa). The staff in the evening were stagiaires from hotel/catering schools from France. They were very nice and professional. After dinner you can enjoy drinks and TV in the living area or play pool near the bar.
Facilities are good. There's open-air free parking (which is good since you cannot park in the street), tennis court. The hotel also has it's own pool, jacuzzi, hammam.
The Radisson's in SPA city center is pricier but you can get from the hotel to the spa via a short cabin ride annexed to the hotel (meaning you can leave your room just wearing your bathrobe :-). Here the spa complex is about a 2 minutes drive. The spa provides 5 hour parking for 2 hours, so if you are by car and plan to go to the spa, the Balmoral is good choice and will turn out cheaper than its city center sibling.
Finally, the reception staff was professional and friendly.
