Just returned from The Hotel Balmoral after a 2 night stay. We were very lucky as excellent bay window room with views of the garden and sea view through the trees so cannot comment on the other rooms.
No problem with staff as always obliging and cheerful. Yes, it was necessary to ring the bell at Reception desk but within seconds always someone there to assist. Lovely furnished restaurant which overlooks the well maintained garden. Good choice of menu and food served at a high standard. Best steak I have eaten for a very long time - £15.00 for a 5 course meal. Excellent value and more importantly quality food. Just surprised that this is not advertised at the Reception desk, as in conversation with fellow guests, some were not aware of this. Also if we had been aware of the cream tea, we would have phoned in advance to order this on our arrival.
It would be nice if staff in public areas wore name badges.
To sum this Hotel up - good location, relaxing gardens, nice public areas (lounge bar and drawing room) excellent food and friendly staff.More
