The hotel is undergoing refurbishment and this was evident from the new double glazed windows in our room, which incidentally provided fantastic sea views. The room itself was large and clean, but very dated (think an elderly relative's spare bedroom) but the owners clearly acknowledge this and are working on it. It was fairly well equipped, with a kettle, shower... More

Having stayed on 3 previous occasions we can see the improvements each time, it's a long term project but they are doing well, the meals are first class,the rooms are clean,but more importantly the staff make an extra effort to make your stay enjoyable,

The Balmoral Hotel has an envious location - next to the BIC and a short walk to the sea front, pleasure gardens and pier. The new owners took over last year, and a programme of refurbishing the tired old rooms has begun. The rooms are all different, for example some have showers only, others have bath only, some have both,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Balmoral Hotel in Bournemouth recently and really had a wonderful time. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms were very clean. It's very close to the beach. We would definitely recommend this hotel. We had a very relaxing stay and would go back tomorrow if we could.

We booked a sea view room and were not disappointed. The views were excellent. The room was comfortable and very clean. We stayed in March and the radiator worked quickly with extra blanket in the wardrobe if required. No problem. Had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was fine. Staff friendly and courteous. Very good parking facilities. We appreciate that the... More

This is a hotel on the up. For years the building was neglected, so now the decor is tired and the facilities worn! However, it's clean and tidy and in a location to die for! Just two minutes from BIC and overlooking the town and the sea. Views from the quaint bar and TV lounge are fantastic and from the... More

Needed a hotel in a convenient location and a lift as we were taking my 87 year old Dad for a short break. Had read previous reviews, so knew that this hotel is still work in progress - but it was far outweighed by the perfect location and very helpful and friendly owners and staff. Our rooms were in need... More

Came to see a show the BIC and found this place online. Having rung they said was about 10 minutes away, so we booked having read the reviews on here we knew what to expect. That was exceeded, yes it does need to be redecorated but that is gradually being done. The family room was a great size, with everything... More

This old hotel has the potential to be great. The new owners have taken on a monumental task. Good location, comfy beds, friendly staff and with a large injection of tlc it would be an ideal place to stay.
