Everything about this hotel is dated, The mattress on the bed was worn out,the bedding was not adequate as there was no top sheet(a must in warm weather) .the shower was far to small (60x60cm) not big enough for a normal sized guy ie 5 10 &15st. The area and Torquay were fantastic, The hotel is abismal.

I'm sorry to say that this hotel caters for a much older age-range, I of course didn't realise this before booking. It's like the hotel is stuck in the 70's from the decor to the food. No hotel in this day and age has carpet in the bathrooms, it's just so unhygienic!! Food was obviously cooked earlier on and kept... More

We stayed here for a short break last week and had a lovely time. The only downside was our room, but it was booked on the day we travelled and was the only one left. The staff were so helpful and the food was amazing. A bonus was the fact that we didn't use the car during the whole of... More

We were recommended to this hotel by family and were very pleased with the location, comfort, friendliness and excellent food. Our room, a 'cosy' double was fine except for the very cosy bathroom! Could have been a little more spacious. We did try to book a premium sea view room but had to settle for one or the other and... More

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
