Just spent a weekend in Bournemouth for a family event. Husband and 3 grandchildren in 2 very comfortable seaview family rooms. We arrived late, no problems with that and wakened to a fabulous breakfast. The children were in their element,great choice of cereals and juices followed by any sort of full English you could think of cooked to order. First... More

Short break at Bournemouth staying on the west cliff at The Balmoral Hotel. The hotel has recently been taken over and is undergoing a refurbishment. On being shown to our room the staff were very pleasant allround and helpful in showing the hotel facilities. The room had just been renovated with new carpets and had a large light airy feel...

I stayed here for a concert at the Bic. Nice central location, only a few minutes from the International centre, and the gardens and shops just a five plus minute walk away. Can see the sea and pier from the Hotel lounge. A bit dated, but the current owners are in the process of updating this grand hotel. Has a... More

The hotel is old and slightly dated but in the process of being refurbished. The hotel staff were friendly at all times and we were made to feel very welcome. Margaret and her staff show how it should be done and all in all it was a great stay.

Stayed here with my wife for four nights in late June, very friendly and welcoming staff (nothing too much trouble). Could not give the Hotel 5 stars due to being a bit "tired" and in need of re-furbishing but everywhere in the Hotel was spotlessly clean, Breakfast was superb. Will certainly stay here again if we are down this way.

We stayed at the Balmoral during the Whitsun half term with our two young grandsons, and had a really lovely holiday. It is true that the bedrooms do need refurbishing, I was slightly disapointed at the stained carpet and headboardless beds when we entered our family room, but we soon forgot about those minor details. Our room was a good... More

Only niggle was that cold water very poor and a shower would be impossible even without the fact no shower curtain! However this will hopefully be addressed in... More

We first stayed in the Balmoral Hotel in April this year. We were looking at getting married on the beach and we booked it due to its competitive price (due to ongoing refurbishment) and good trip advisor reviews. To us, the most important thing we look for in a review is cleanliness, good service and location. The Balmoral Hotel scored... More
