This hotel/guest house is an example of how to run an efficient friendly hotel and offer good value for money. Our room was on the top floor which involved a bit of a hike up the second staircase but it was roomy and spotlessly clean. The whole place was clean and tidy and the resident proprietors were always available. The... More

Our third visit to the Balincourt this time for the Air Festival weekend. The hotel was spotless as previously. Good choice at breakfast of cereals, fruit, yogurt and excellent variety of cooked breakfasts to cater for all, beautifully cooked by Alison. (I noticed gluten free options readily available). Alison and Nigel are very welcoming and go out of their way... More

A warm welcome awaited us as we arrived. Parking space located to the front of the property and we were granted by a lovely gentleman who showed us to our room, a spacious double ensuite bedroom. Spotlessly clean, lovely bedlinen and the most comfortable bed you could imagine. Breakfast the next day was extremely well organised, plentiful and excellent quality.... More

The Balincourt is ideally located for visiting Bournemouth and the surrounding area. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, and although the final flight of stairs to our room were a little steep, the room was good with everything we needed, including bottles of water, free wifi, TV and DVD player, etc., and...
