This hotel has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, home from home but with people looking after you. The food is lovely and the staff in the restaurant were amazing, very friendly and excellent service. We only came for two nights for a short break and were delighted with the room, the service, food and beautiful surroundings. The gardens are lovely overlooking... More

The hotel has a lovely lounge, bar and restaurant with views of the very pretty landscaped garden that provides plenty of seating, umbrellas and a terrace from where you can relax with a drink and enjoy the sea views until late into the evening. Breakfast on fruit juices, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruits and a fresh cooked breakfast from a large... More

Have several different views on this hotel. Inital thoughts were that the grounds itself are nice however when you step foot in the building it is all very dated but it is clean so you can't really complain. The check in was fine, had booked a 'cosy sea view' room.. This definitely was 'cosy' with barely any room to move... More

We went with friends for a 4 day midweek break, everything that was promised was delivered, Food excellent, staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, great location and short walk to the sea, easy parking as well as a great bus service into the town to save parking Will be back soon

we made a last minute booking at the Balmoral and where so pleased to get a ground floor superior room as we had requested. The photos made the rooms and gardens look beautiful and we were really looking forward to our six night break. All we can say is DONT GO THERE. The bedroom which looked out onto the front... More

We stayed for a week in July. We had room 16 which was a decent size and, if you crane your neck, has a sea view. Of course, the sea view is just a glimpse of water through the trees - as is clear from the photos on the hotel website. The room and bed were comfortable. The bathroom could... More

We booked our stay as a last minute thing having had a stressful year and this hotel proved the perfect antidote! It is in quiet location and very close to the beach and town centre. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was good quality and plentiful. The room was clean and tidy, though in need of some... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in August. Location is good right next to Meadfoot Beach. The staff were friendly but service standards weren't great. Various breakfast options, including cooked, were fine but of really basic quality. The room itself was cosy (as described) but in need of some updating and DIY. Bed was creaky and we could... More

Breakfast,,,! The three or four staff that try their best to run... More
