We stayed for Christmas and were extremely well looked after. The staff could not do enough for any of the guests and were always friendly, polite and helpful without exception. We are vegetarian and after an initial hiccup were treated to something special from the kitchen every day. The cosy double was clean and tidy and as described, and, we...

The room was described as Cozy Sea View. It was quite small but had everything we needed plus more. The shower room is also quite small but again is fully functional and with excellent quality shower gel and hand wash. The towels are large and very clean. The bed itself is very comfortable and the tea and coffee making supplies...

Absolutely marvelous. The food, the staff, the attention, everything was excellent. The room was not the greatest, but lets face it, it was only for sleeping and it was perfectly adequate. We have already booked again for next year

We went here for Christmas largely because of the large number of positive reviews this hotel had attracted. We weren't disappointed. Fabulous service, fabulous food and a warm friendly atmosphere. The clientele were all elderly and most had been there numerous times before. Everybody talked to you and made you feel welcome. We felt like one big happy family. Already...

Stayed at the Balmoral for a girls long weekend and had the best time. The staff were attentive, warm and friendly. The rooms were comfortable. One of our party had to have their room changed and it was done without a problem. The cream tea was delightful after a busy day shopping and the 5 course dinner was delicious. Great...

The hotel was clean, the facilities were good, the room was cosy, but the wallpaper was very busy, everything worked in the room. The staff were friendly, polite and attentive. The food was good, maybe a touch more seasoning. We had a lovely Christmas lunch. As we another couple did not leave on the Sunday evening we were provided with...

We booked a cosy room late and had no opportunity to choose a 'better' room. However, the room was as described on the website so we were not disappointed. That said, although the room was perfectly comfortable, we'd probably choose a room with a view if we visited again. Food and service were better than anticipated and bar prices were...
