“Great! ”

Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

We attended a wedding at the Balmoral this weekend and just wanted to say what a great place it is. We didn't stay here, but spent lots of time in the bar when not at the wedding!

The bar staff were all fantastic, really friendly and helpful. There was a wide choice of drinks available and really reasonably priced. The pool room was a hit with the kids as was the fact they showed lots of sport (including the Froch v Groves fight).

Friday evening we had some curry which was great and then Saturday lunchtime we had sandwiches which were freshly prepared and very nice!

As for the wedding, wow! The ceremony took place in restaurant 23 with it's stunning views of the sea! A really lovely room. And the function suite was transformed. The staff on hand at the wedding were fantastic and kept everything moving and the food, particularly the two starters, were fantastic!

Definitely well worth a visit!

We had our wedding reception here on 10th may 2014. All the staff were a pleasure to deal with particularly donna who was our main contact for any arrangments we had. The choice of wedding packages were fantastic- we opted for the delux package which meant all we had to arrange was a band for the evening( we were also provided with a list of recommended bands- great help) menu, room decor, dj etc were all part of the package- great value for money and took out any unnecessary stressing:) the room itself was stunning and the staff set up a few extra bits that I provided. The food was fantastic also, our guests were very impressed by the high standard of dining and service- we had a few special dietry requests for some of our guests to which to hotel did not fail to impress. We were also given a complimentary night in the honeymoon suite that night and decided to stay a further two nights in the suite- beautiful room, beautifully decorated with a stunning view- the high standard of service continued throughout our stay. We had dinner in the hotel's restraunt 23 which was beautiful also- we will definitely be back as will alot of our guests as they were very impressed by what the balmoral has to offer! Thanks again to all the staff who made our wedding day so memorable by providing a relaxed, friendly and professional service! Oonagh and chris

On arrival - first shock no reception - second shock - bedroom stank of stale smoke. Ordered a ham sandwich and received it on plain bread not buttered. Night time was a nightmare with people running up and down the corridor banging on all the doors and trying the handles. The one and only positive was the restaurant which served good food and friendly restaurant & bar staff. we had a present for a 2 night stay but sadly we checked out on the second afternoon!!!

We had their afternoon tea - waiter was very professional - plenty to eat - lovely sea view from restaurant. We used Groupon vouchers - the normal price would have been 30 pounds for 2 which I think is expensive.
