Breakfast was good. Very clean throughout
Decor a little old fashioned style
Nice hotel, clean, and staff pleasant enough. WiFi struggled to work in our room at the top.
This hotel was so peaceful and comfortable; we could have slept forever. The staff were accommodating and the breakfast choice was great.
The location, the room was very comfortable and clean and provided everything required for a very pleasant stay. The breakfasts were superb, and the bar was a great bonus. All this and very friendly hosts made it a great place to stay.
The service is always excellent and the staff go out of their way to accommodate your every need. relaxing even though its on a main road.
Nothing comes to mind except having to leave the 6ft bed behind.
Position,Style of property,Size of room, comfortable bed,great food,excellent service
Shower was not serviced properly. Had to wait a long time for hot water to come through. Sink plug hole leaking, so water disappeared when washing. Use of fabric conditioner on bedding caused my allergy to erupt. The proprietor said 'oh'.
very clean and comfortable. Tea, coffee and bottled water topped up each day. Nice big clean towels provided and bed made up each day. Pleasant staff, nothing too much trouble.
Internet connection intermittent. Bit further out of town than we realised although bus stop just outside with very frequent buses.
convenient for beach convenient for rail station and buses excellent room excellent breakfast helpful service
A really friendly ,relaxing and very comfortable place to stay . Welcoming couple which would do anything to make your stay perfect whatever your needs.
An overall excellent experience - a first rate small hotel
Excellent location for buses into town and beyond. Not too far from beach and sea front (about 20 minutes). Unlimited breakfast choices. Spotlessly clean rooms and communal areas. Helpful resident proprietors. Evening meals optional and very good value. Bar facilities if needed. Over 16's only (ideal). Free parking on site. Best B&B/small hotel I have stayed at!
My room was on top floor (only 2 rooms like this) and a bit of a hike up the second staircase.
Everything was wonderful, good size room, comfy bed, WiFi, good choice at breakfast especially the fresh fruit salad - would definitely recommend.
Had a very pleasant at Balincourt would stay there again
Food very good Friendly helpful staff Near to Bus stops \lots of helpful information Comfortable rooms
would have liked some outside sitting space
The bed was excellent rarely before have we ever had such a wonderful hotel bed to sleep in. The breakfast was fabulous but we didn't take dinner so we cannot comments the choice of restaurants is too great to spend even more time in the hotel. The staff were good and did everything well.
The hotel was a bit old fashioned and the dull artwork did nothing to enhance ambience. Another reason we didn't take dinner was that our room was above the kitchen and the smells good and bad permeated through. The room we had was listed as a premium room but the decoration was bland and otherwise had nothing to command the extra cost over normal. Tarty toiletries and a few sweets were not worth the extra. The shower was poor too. You had to move a lot to get wet and the domed shower tray was dangerous. The saniflo unit used to move sewage from the toilet into the drains was very noisy too. If I stayed again I'd specify a front facing room which look better on the website.
Friendly and helpful Owners,location and overall ambiance.
The location was close to the town and beach, the hotel was spotless. Very friendly staff when they were around. Bed very comfortable. Very quite at night.
En-suite was very small. Not a lot of room to dry your self. Out side we sat on the bench, nice evening. There was a bucket right by the bench, it was for smokers!! We are not smokers, we had to move as the ashes smelt awful. The flower baskets was watered 2 may be 3 times a day. It left a big puddle when you went in and out the door. No signs were there to warn you it was a slippery service. Did not like boiled mushrooms or the sausage for breakfast.
The whole experience
That I had to go home
Breakfast was ok.
The only outside space is two benches in the front garden over looking the a35 very poor indeed would not be returning.
actually worth the very high reviews it recived. great breakfast!
a little bit old fashioned but adds to the charm!
Excellent breakfast. Friendly customer-centred service. Very clean and efficient - thoughtful attention to detail in every aspect. Room quite spacious despite super-kingsize bed. Although we didn't use them, there is a separate lounge and TV room with games and books. Attractive flower borders at front.
Minor point: offstreet parking space a little tight when hotel full.
I didn't think it was quite up to the billing.
Design of rooms
Wasn't enough room for car!
My wife and I have just enjoyed a three night stay and the Balincourt is one of the best guest houses we have ever stayed in. It is spotlessly clean, beautifully maintained and the our room was a delight with the most comfortable of beds! The breakfast was delicious with a variety of choices to accommodate all tastes. Well done Nigel and Alison...keep up the good work! We will be back!
