From the website claims and some of the previous reviews here on Tripadvisor we felt confident of a relaxing two day break. Our expectations were dashed when we realised the Balincourt is located on the A35 and directly facing a Premier Inn and Travelodge. Although we realised the location prior to booking we had no idea that the road would be so noisy and the Hotel located so close and offerring no views.
I'm confident a North facing room would have offered better sleep but for us we endured police sirens, slamming car doors, shouting and costant traffic roar. The price we paid was premium and we honestly expected more as the establishment has been granted 5 stars.
The Room was however clean though we expected larger ensuite facilities.
My husband is over 6 foot and had a job to squeeze into the shower, which we expected to be larger.
I suggest any potential Tripadvisor users should check the location thoroughly before booking, and ask the staff about the bathroom dimensions and the proximity to the main road.
