We were staying near to the Balmoral and were tempted in by the thought of a cream tea served in the grounds. After about a 15 minute wait, it arrived. The scones looked suspiciously like cheap shop-bought ones and being warm I guess they had also seen the inside of a microwave. They weren't very big either. Given that the... More

We booked two nights in the hotel on recommendation of friends. We booked a cosy room with sea and garden view room was abit small so would go for the larger room . We were greeted by friendly and efficient staff, and nothing is too much trouble. , Excellent food with good choice and service

The Hotel Balmoral does have a lot of things going for it but also lets itself down in small ways. . On the plus side the hotel is neat and tidy and kept very clean. The gardens are nicely manicured and provide a nice area to sit and relax. The public areas are comfortable and there is plenty of seating,... More

I've just returned from a weekend break here. As I was late arriving I unfortunately missed dinner but I was made a chicken salad and offered dessert which was delicious. Breakfast the following morning was tasty and my evening meal was fantastic. The main waiter did seem a little abrupt, the restaurant wasn't too busy, especially when I asked questions... More

This comfortable hotel is a mere 2 minutes walk from the beautiful Meadfoot bay on the edge of Torquay we discovered. This was a major bonus as it is a wonderful blue flag beach. Whilst we were somewhat younger than most of the clientele there we were made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff. The champagne I had... More

We visited the lovely little Hotel Balmoral again and were pleased to find it as good as ever. This was our third visit and our first in the summertime. The hotel is in a lovely location with views over Meadfoot Beach - the quieter and more scenic part of Torquay. For those who like to walk, it is ideal being... More
