My first visit to This hotel and indeed to Torquay . I had booked here after reading the reviews and looking at the gallery on the website. I was a little disappointed in the decor of my room as it was quite dowdy in colour. The management did offer to give me a different room as soon as one became available but having spent a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed in a warm and quiet room I decided the decor didn't matter after all. I did think that having to climb on to a chair to open the window was a bit much but being agile I didn't mind really . There is nothing the hotel could be expected do to rectify this without changing the window completely but if you are six foot plus tall, you won't have a problem. Shower was nice with good pressure. In the process of cleaning the room the staff even tidied my personal belongings on the dressing table. Wasn't expecting this level of service and made sure I thanked the young lady personally. Food was very good and plenty of it with healthy choices. Table service excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful.
There is a warm ,relaxed atmosphere about the whole place and therefore would highly recommend the Balmoral.
Oh, and one more thing is.... If you do not have your own transport or prefer to leave the car behind there is a bus stop right outside the hotel which I found very handy.
Thank you to Alex and all the staff for making my stay a relaxing and enjoyable time.
