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.

We had a fabulous weekend. The staff were very friendly but professional and nothing was too much trouble. The food was absolutely amazing and cooked to our own personal tastes. We will definitely be booking to stay here again.

Room Tip: We had a standard room with a sea view, next time I would upgrade as the room we stayed in was quite...

We first visited Hotel Balmoral in May and were impressed then. We told friends about it, and on seeing a special deal on offer between Christmas and New Year, invited them to join us.
They were impressed too!
I'd look around at other offers but I could not find anything to compare price-wise!
Even in December, we had good weather and, as ever, the food was great! What more could you want!
We will be returning......probably with more friends next time!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are bigger....but add to the cost!

We have never stayed at the Hotel Balmoral before but were recommended by friends who have been there many times. We had a really good time, food was excellent, the property was clean and well decorated and everything in working order. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Room 16 was very quiet apart from when people were staying in the room above us when it sounded like...

We have been visiting this hotel for the past 20 years and even though it has changed hands in the last 7 years the standard is still as good as ever. The hotel is very nice and comfortable and friendly. We usually meet people we have seen before as they always seem to go back. Check out their website for prices it really is good value for money.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, its not worth paying for a sea view in the winter as if you only use your room f...
