The Balmoral is located a five minute stroll away from Bournemouth Pier and within easy access of a number of restaurants and the beach. The city centre can be reached on foot within ten minutes. So, location is definitely a plus for this place. There is also ample private parking (at no extra cost) right in front of the hotel, which is very convenient if you’re on a road trip. Our room had partial sea view and was relatively spacious and had recently been refurbished. Unfortunately, the entrance hall and breakfast area look a bit tired and would need some TLC - the same holds true for the elevator, which we found rather scary.
But, there is plenty of room to sit and read, which is a definite plus and the rates are very reasonable. So it’s up to you, if you don’t mind the decor, you can spend a lovely time at the Balmoral.More
