      Lovely hotel

      Stayed for 2 nights at the end of a mini tour of the UK. The hotel is very clean, excellent and welcoming staff and breakfast was lovely. Lovely Gardens, plenty of outdoor tables and chairs. Very good location, close to a beach but a short walk to Torquay harbour over a hill. Taxi was only £5 so not a major issue. Would stay again without question

      Excellent hotel in a quiet area. Staff very friendly, very good breakfast with plenty of choices. Good on site parking. Large private garden area, with plenty of seating. Hotel bar with good range of drinks available. Some evening noise, with doors banging and other rooms bathroom extraction fans left running all night. This due to inconsiderate guests and not necessarily hotels fault. Could only book small “cosy” room, as described, but would try to book large room if returning.

      Nice hotel but for 'cosy' read small!

      Nice hotel, good breakfast, however the 'cosy' double bedroom was very small with a tiny shower room

      A Great Place To Stay

      In a few words I can sum up The Balmoral - welcoming, clean, food & service very good, not the most modern building but decoration and ambience excellent. Good Covid-19 safety measures in place. Would recommend this hotel unreservedly.
