“Midweek Break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

This was our first visit to the Balmoral Hotel and it was most enjoyable. The staff were cheerful and helpful, the food was good and the room was clean and comfortable. The decor in the lounge and bar was relaxing and made for a very pleasant stay. Thank you.

This was our first visit to the Hotel Balmoral and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. The food was excellent with plently of choice and variation .The lounge area was very comfortable with the bar being close at hand and relations enjoyed visiting us in the evening . The hotel is within easy reach of Torquay centre and close to the nearby Meadfoot beach .

We were a party of 10 from a skittles team from Cheltenham. We had been to the Balmoral before and could not fault it which was why we decided to come again.. The staff are all extremely helpful and friendly and the food was first class and the accomodation was very comfortable. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening entertainment. We would highly recommend the Balmoral to anyone, including our friends and families

This is such a lovely place to relax, the rooms are comfortable clean and cosy, the food is excellent and there is a really good choice too. This delightful little hotel offers oh so much more than many of its larger counterparts, the personal touches like Cream teas on arrival and Sunday lunch before you go home (all included in the price), make this a little gem of a place.

Its also close to a lovely yet secluded little beach which is excellent for that bracing early morning walk or the quiet moonlit one, if you just want to read or do nothing in particular, then the light and airy lounge is perfect and for finer weather there is always the beautiful garden area.

The staff are friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Unlike many hotels in this area they provide entertainment on both the Friday and Saturday nights and Eddie (Saturday) is definitely entertaining. So there is no need to trawl the town for somewhere to go.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing weekend away in the company of some very nice and friendly people.

Room Tip: you could go for a larger sea view... but in truth all rooms are lovely. For those with mobility is...
