I have just returned from a mini weekend at The Balmoral coutesy of Leisuretime Travel, (Cardiff). The weather was bitterly cold and I'm sorry to say the Balmoral's central heating failed to heat my first floor single room on the Friday evening even though the radiator was on full blast! Thankfully there was enough bedding for me to have a decent night's sleep. Other than that I had an enjoyable time at the hotel. My single room, on ground level, was compact with a decent sized bathroom area, an old style tv with 4 channels available and the usual tea/coffee making facilities. Meals were served in the basement dining room and the meals were tasty and well cooked with the waiting staff being efficient and friendly. Bar prices were rather high, £3-50 a pint, but that seems to be the norm these days in these types of hotels. The cabaret on the Saturday evening, provided by a male/female duo singing 60's/70's pops, Carpenters style was very enjoyable. I was impressed by the owner, Jenny's hands-on and enthusiastic attitude whilst the French bar lady was charming. All in all, and taking in the abnormal weather conditions, I had an enjoyable stay and would certainly stay there again but, perhaps not in the depth of winter for obvious reasons!

The Hotel was clean and warm, rooms were large and well furnished. only down side was bathroom very narrow, no handles on the bath which was very deep so struggled to get out even if your fit

Room Tip: only seen rooms on second floor all were large and comfortable, rooms with sea view are 20 21 22 23...

Our party were well catered for at this nice family run hotel. Rooms at the rear do have a genuine sea view over looking the bay and the pier. Pleasant lounge area, large TV room with plasma TV, small lift to all floors. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice breakfast with a good choice of fruit, cereals, full English, toast, marmalade etc. Efficient service. Nice comfy beds with clean linen and plenty of fluffy white towels. Water pressure not too good for the shower but could be adjusted a little until the temperature was ok. We had two evening meals provided at the hotel during our stay which were extremely good. Well cooked, nice and hot and we were never kept waiting between courses. The furniture in the room we had was a lilttle worn and dated but it served its purpose. Overall we were very pleased and enjoyed our stay at The Balmoral...a good value for money place to stay, close to the town and the beach and the view from our room was great.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel on the 2nd floor have the best sea view
