My daughter and I recently visited the Balmoral Hotel for a weekend break and we weren't disappointed. We had a lovely warm welcome from Alex (and Rolo), who was very hospitable and helpful. Our room was lovely and clean, just thought that the bathroom could do with updating, but still very clean. The food was very good and the staff... More

Its garden was a great place to relax and rest in a peaceful setting. From the Hotel we walked in town in about 12... More

Good local breakfast, nice rooms, even if they are a little small on the small side. For dinner they offer a good choice from four different alternatives for each course. After five evenings we look forward to sitting down for Dinner still. The wonderful terasse and the beautiful garden invite to take the evening tea after Dinner outside. We recommend... More

The website for this hotel is deceiving. It looks lovely and fresh and is quite the opposite. Our room wasn't even cleaned and we found hair, hair clips and bits on the carpet. The shower was also dirty and the place just generally dusty. The find in our room put us off eating there and we had paid for breakfast... More

This Victorian building is beautiful, the location is fabulous, just two minutes walk to the beach, and may I recommend the walk into Torquay along the front, idyllic.

The Hotel Balmoral was a lovely place to stay, eat and drink and we were very fortunate that the weather was very good too making this feel like a real holiday. The staff were universally friendly, polite and helpful and the food choices were very good. Sitting in the lovely garden with glimpses of the sea through the trees on... More
