We chose to stay at this hotel for our 3 night stay, whilst enjoying the sights Torquay has to offer. Alex and staff were extremely hospitable and there when needed, the service really is second to non. Our room was extremely cosy and the bed was a size, in fact I thought I lost my partner a couple of times... More

Our room was small and the bathroom was tiny. And why do hoteliers think it's a good idea to use cheap plastic fittings like towel rails when better items cost so little more? The public rooms are very attractive. The bar prices were reasonable. The breakfast was really excellent. All staff were efficient and friendly. We left our car at... More

Myself and my partner have never been to Torquay before and we wanted to go there for a nice get away from our busy home and job lives. The Balmoral is in the perfect location for peace and quiet and just up the road from the harbour and around the corner from a beautiful coastal walk. The hotel staff were... More

We have just stayed here on a working weekend break & after reading numerous reviews on how good this hotel is, I need to share how dissapointed I was! I can't believe there's so many good reviews. Our room number 9 was terrible! We arrived very late Friday night at midnight so keys were left for us, upon walking through... More

We visited Torquay for the weekend and stayed two nights at the hotel which was situated 5 minutes walk from the seafront. The room was nice with all the usual facilities for a 3* hotel, the staff were friendly and chatty and you could tell that they enjoyed there work. The grounds of the hotel are plenty full with adequate... More

Amazing. We had breakfast and Dinner and the food was delicious faultless and a lot of it. We had the 6 course dinner and it's... More

Stayed for 5 nights BB and Evening Meal to celebrate a friends birthday and do a bit of touring. Public rooms and gardens are a joy, some of the bedrooms and other areas are on line for refurbishment that this family owned hotel are working on as a roling programme (its a bit 1980/90s....) and in adding the bathrooms back...

We stayed for just one night this week, wish we could have stayed longer. The house and gardens are stunning, with views of the sea. Positioned an easy stroll from Meadfoot Beach. The hotel itself seems to be work in progress. The public rooms were lovely and what I would expect from a house of this age, it looked as... More
