Ideally located in the heart of Medway, The Balmoral is central and convenient for all transport links in the Kent area. The Balmoral underwent extensive refurbishment in 2008 and, now under new ownership, offers you quality 3 star accommodation with modern conveniences at affordable prices. Come and stay for a night or two or take advantage of our weekly stay discounts; especially packaged for the touring visitor or workers needing longer term accommodation. You will find us directly across the road from Gillingham train station and only 50 yards from the High Street. Accessing all areas is simple. Our friendly staff are ready to greet you and ensure your stay is a comfortable one. We look forward to welcoming you in person to our guesthouse.
