Stayed at this hotel for three nights from the 11th of May. Had one of the rooms that had not been renovated but found it to be perfectly adequate for us . It was nice to be able to sit in the lounge and enjoy the sea views .Breakfast was great , help yourself to cereals and fresh fruit salad.... More

They still have many rooms to update.. but the... More

We have stayed here a few times, both for the Nightlife and for events at the BIC. Just a short walk away. The rooms are in need of some tender loving care but the beds are one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in at a Hotel. The staff are extremely nice and helpful. This hotel is a good... More

I stayed Thursday-Saturday at The Balmoral on a recent weekend in March with my other half. Partly for my birthday as well as to catch some football on the Saturday, being an avid Middlesbrough fan we thought it'd be a good idea to make a long weekend of it as we were travelling so far. We arrived around 6:30pm on... More

Booked this via Late Rooms and had a very good deal for a stay of two nights with breakfast. The breakfast was excellent; good quality, tasty food with a cold buffet (yoghurt, fresh fruit salad, prunes, grapefruit, cereals, fruit juice), full English or poached/boiled scrambled eggs with toast, followed by toast and preserves. The service was excellent, too. This hotel... More

Read the reviews about this hotel and it was just as expected. Under going transformation by the obviously impassioned new owners, Margaret and her husband, and Denise her sister. Received a very warm welcome even though we were checking in much early than advertised. Last minute booking direct with hotel and so we were shown several rooms before making our... More

I stayed here last night accompanied by my sister and mother. We had previously booked another hotel which was awful so we searched frantically to find other accommodation and after looking at last miniute.com we saw they had vacancies so drove over so we could have a look. Although the hotel is dated it was spotlessly clean and the staff... More

This is a family run typical seaside older style hotel which is in the process of being completely renovated. Yes, our room was tired, it wasn't one of those that had been completed but it was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was of good quality, £17 for a 3 course evening meal. Breakfast was... More

We booked a room here via the tourist information centre on arrival for an impromptu weekend at the beach. The hotel is undergoing decoration and our room was a little in need of tlc..... But it was clean, comfortable and perfectly adequate for our needs. It's a lovely old building with high ceilings and period features. The staff were friendly... More
