"The Balmoral Arms is perfection! All the staff were very friendly and helpful, dedicated to us having a great stay. Our room was beautiful, comfortable, and had an enormous, luxurious bathroom. The food in the formal dining room and the bar was delicious. The location is outstanding for roaming the town, doing some of the local hikes, and driving to Balmoral Castle. We were so happy to find such a wonderful accommodation and appreciate all the special touches to make our stay comfortable."
