We only booked in for one night and I choose a sea view room rather than a refurb room but I was very happy with the room and the views were brilliant . The Owner and staff were very accommodating and even showed me the new updated rooms which were to a very high standard. The hotel was very clean... More

A hotel with aspirations not yet met. Undergoing renovations which are going to be very good, unfortunately we did not have that experience in the room we were allocated. The staff and management were pleasant and we could not fault the food which was of a very high standard. Terrific. Excellent chef and conscientious dining room staff. Ideally placed for... More

Made our stay perfect even though the weather wasn't great. A special mention for Will, what a great guy, but so were the rest of the staff, from housekeeping, the service received... More

We only stayed one night in a refurbished room on the ground floor. The room was well presented and the en-suite was newly finished. Of a good standard. The shower cubicle was good but if you were large in size there may not be a lot of spare room in there. Average sized people should have no problem. This room... More

My son and I have visited Bournemouth on several occasions but it was the first time at the Balmoral Hotel and I can say now with confidence that it won't be the last visit. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We travelled by train so knew we would arrive at 11 am so asked if we could leave... More

Very friendly and hospitable hotel. Undergoing significant refurbishment but we had a first class newly refurbished room which was (we found out) the honeymoon room:-) Food was very nicely served by very courteous and friendly staff. The restaurant is due to be refurbished and I look forward to returning when the work at this hotel is completed. In the meantime,... More
