    Had a one night stay hear on Easter Monday. Friendly staff and great breakfast. Adults only so it was very quiet even though it's on a busy road. Very clean room and a free Easter egg which was a nice touch.

    The Balincourt is a very charming, quiet and pleasant hotel, in walking distance from the city centre (app. 10 -15 mins). The rooms are comfy and tidy. Good breakfast, easy access and free parking. Highly recommend it.

    The ground floor room would be suitable if your mum ha mobility problems the shower has grab handles and is easy to get into . I think it can be a double or twin but I do not think there is a lift to the other floors
