Just had 2 nights at The Balincourt and very nice it was to. Lovely very quiet room overlooking the back. The whole hotel was very well appointed, provided an extremely good and wide choice breakfast. Nigel could not have been more helpful providing restaurant recommendations and maps. Thank you for a very relaxing break.

We had an excellent visit to this hotel, only problem was we were only able to stay one night - we were made to feel very welcome and having an early breakfast, as we had to leave early to go to a Baptism, was no problem - thank you so much. The room was lovely and comfortable and clean. Hope... More

Friendly, extremely well decorated hotel, lots of choice for breakfast. We had a massive room with a sofa which was perfect for relaxing after a day sightseeing. Excellent value for money with a bit of luxury.

My wife and myself stayed at the hotel for 3 days last week and could not have been more delighted with our choice. The main areas of the hotel are kept immaculately clean as was the room. Although the nights were cold the room was kept warm and cosy. The room had tea making facilities and a couple unexpected extras,... More

Had a very nice experience at The Balincourt from start to finish. The staff obviously work around the clock to make sure this establishment keeps its 5 star status and it shows! The Balincourt is faultless and therefore the next time we visit Bournemouth, we will be staying here!!!! Thankyou very much.

Stayed for a few days at the balincourt recently and cannot praise the hotel enough.The size of room for the price and choice for breakfasts and evening meals was exceptional. Also the service offered was first rate. The location was perfect and prominent for all local restaurants

We're so please you enjoyed your stay. Just one word of correction though, we're actually classed as guest accommodation not a hotel - but we like to think we're much better than a hotel! Come back and see us again soon. You are guaranteed a warm welcome. More

We so enjoyed our six day stay at The Balincourt. We were very comfortable in our very tastefully decorated room with clean modern en-suite facilities, the beds were comfortable and the bed linen immaculate. We took advantage of the excellent breakfasts and were most agreeably surprised by the high standard of the very tasty and copious evening meals, we ate... More

A good b&b with substantial breakfasts, comfortable room although the bath needed a thorough clean. A bit pricey for a Bournemouth guest house. On the plus side bus stops are very close by with very frequent buses to the town and excellent restaurants for eating out.
