I stayed with my parents at Balqueen every year from 1957 - 1965 and then a couple of times in the 70s. I loved our holidays there and met up with the same Balqueen friends every year - I remember Charlie the Hall porter marrying Ivy who was our waitress. We have just returned from a few days on the island staying in Port Erin. How sad to see the Balqueen as it is now. Why is nothing done to what is left of the hotel or why is it not demolished? Port St Mary seemed a very different place to the one I remember.
