We were made welcome from the moment the door was opened for us! Sandy was exceptional on reception and the bar staff were knowledgeable and helpful. We didn't eat in the hotel but the Tea room and the restaurants looked good. Our room was great, clean and they came to refresh the water bottles, turn the quilt down, tidy up which was a pleasant surprise. The spa was fabulous, pool was superb; they provide teas, coffees, water plus news papers, magazines which adds to the lovely experience you get on your visit there.
Another excellent point to the hotel is it's location, right by the train station, the Airlink bus stop, the shops and the Old Town; near to the Castle and art gallery; great restaurants and bars; the theatre (we went to see West Side Story which was amazing), cinemas etc.
The Balmoral is a superb hotel and even though they had a beautiful wedding going on, they still gave their time & the best customer service to us! Brilliant hotel that I would recommend for any couple wanting a thoroughly enjoyable break as that's what we had!!!
