Excellent hotel with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, excellent food with very attentive waiter and waitress service. Well stocked bar with an array of spirit and ales. Nice quiet location and very good value for money, we have been coming to the Balmora hotel for six years now and we have always had a pleasant stay.
