Arrived back today from a great weekend at Hotel Balmoral,found all staff friendly and helpful,Rooms aren't posh,just basic but are very clean and comfortable with flat screen tv and good tv reception(freeview) and basic tea and coffee making facilities as would expect.from what we saw access for those with more limited mobility would be difficult as there are several flights of stairs but as we had no problems with mobility I didn't explore this any further. There is a small patio area in which you can enjoy sun (yes there was plenty) and a small garden which also has tables and benches. A nice cream tea after arriving and the 'real' food was excellent with 5 course evening meal and good choices at breakfast time too. Very quick service for food and good sized portions. The deal we used also had Sunday lunch included which was a great touch and helped finish the weekend well before long journey home. The hotel has a well stocked bar at average prices. Entertainment ( different singer each night) was enjoyable enough and not too loud. Bar shuts around 11 which is reasonable as most people are there to enjoy Torquay and surrounding area and not party all night! There is a short 10 to 15 minute walk into Torquay or a bus service directly outside. Overall I would highly recommend is hotel for a pleasant relatively inexpensive stay.
