A Great Place To Stay
In a few words I can sum up The Balmoral - welcoming, clean, food & service very good, not the most modern building but decoration and ambience excellent. Good Covid-19 safety measures in place. Would recommend this hotel unreservedly.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Staff were friendly and welcoming, however they were not enforcing the compulsory wearing of masks with guests who were not doing so. We were also disappointed with the food, it wasn't bad but it wasn't great either given the reviews we read prior to booking. The rooms were clean, lots of tea/coffee/milk etc but oh my life the beds were not comfy, mattresses were way too hard for us. This has the potential to be a great little hotel, but some of the basics need improving.
