We have driven past the Balmer Lawn so many times and always said it would be nice to stay day, well we have just stayed for to nights B&B (room 15) with mixed feelings.
Fabulous setting, generally good décor, nice room, but a couple of niggles. Room 15 is above the outdoor drinking area which residents can use at any hour, there are notices asking people to be quite after 11pm, after being woken several times and 01.16 we finally complained and in fairness the night porter put a stop to it immediately.
Simple solution, close the outside drinks area from midnight.
Restaurant overpriced, bar food good, reasonably priced and quick. Breakfast way overpriced at £12.50 each for self service buffet, asked for scrambled eggs, toast and bacon on the second day and was told the "bacons on the buffet"!
Generally the staff were friendly and helpful but could do with smiling more.
So close to being good to excellent but not on this occassion
