The staff were very friendly and helpful and run a quite spectacular establishment. Every request was fulfilled. The room was decorated with period furniture wallpaper and a huge bed. In the room was a huge jacuzzi bath tub, there was also a shower/steam room. Parking was very convenient -right outside the inn. Everything was comfortable and safe.
There was a buffet breakfast, with plenty for the start of your day.
Overall the "The Balance Rock Inn" built in 1903 is a great experience in a great location.
