Excellent4.0 / 5
Nice hotel, but not worth the money.
The hotel is based in a great location. Personally I would only give the hotel 4 stars, not 5. Just a few little touches missing here and there. However I did try the Michlin Star restaurant there, and it was fabulous.

Fantastic Hotel with Spa
FANTASTIC! From the moment you go through the doors into the Balmoral until you leave you are taken care of. The staff couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were spotless. The Breakfast really good and plenty of it. The Spa takes you to another level altogether. You are provided with Bath Robes and Slippers. You can wear these on top of your swimming costume from your room to the lift which takes you the Spa. Absolutely enjoyed my stay to the full.

City break
Superb service in a beautiful building. We only stayed one night in the city but ate in Hadrian's, drank in the Balmoral bar and used the pool, so we got a good overall picture of the hotel...and really can't fault it for a relaxed break. If you ever get the chance, then stay here.
