Satisfactory for overnight stay
This was our second overnight stay at Hotel Balladins and we would rate it satisfactory as breaking a journey to Spain. The hotel facilities were comfortable and clean and free parking was good as long as arrived before adjoining Buffalo Grill started evening meals. Despite best efforts we were unable to access the Free wifi in the room or reception area. For an overnight stay we would use again
