Excellent location, excellent hotel. We stayed in the Balmoral for 3 nts, 3 children and 3 adults. While researching on tripadvisor we were debating staying here or at the Scotsman but the balmoral seemed to be more child friendly from the reviews and we were delighted with our choice. The Scotsman is just next door but the Balmoral stands out by far. The staff were the friendliest we have ever come across. We asked for interconnectiong rooms and got a great deal on the family affair rate which offered 1 room free for kids. We checked all the websites for deals and got the best rate by phoning directly. The weather wasn't the best but the location ment we could come and go as often as we liked and unload our shopping! We ate in Hadrians the first night as it was handy for the kids and we didn't have to leave the hotel, the food was excellent for young and old. The swimming pool was a real treat heading down in our dressing gowns (kids gowns too) every morning to the self service Juice bar. The changing rooms even had hair straightners, a great idea. We are already saving up and planning our next trip to the Balmoral.
