Very smartly turned out quiet motel on a busy road. The units further away from the road are quieter still. The management team have read the book on what punters want and they aim to please, nothing is too much trouble. It was a pleasure to stay at Ballinor. Good sized rooms comfortable beds, squeaky clean. PDG

Very warm and comfortable room. Loved the spa bath and a great selection of sky channels. The only thing that was disappointing is you can hear those in the rooms next to you very clearly which can be off putting

I looked at many hotels in Hamilton and the Ballinor caught my eye. I rung then direct and had fabulous service from Hogan and we discussed room options and I booked on the spot.
