If you are thinking about organising a group holiday in Torquay, then The Hotel Balmoral should be your number one choice.

Our family run hotel is situated in an area called Meadfoot, and is surrounded by a beautiful conservation area and scenic views out to the sea.

Fortunately, the centre of Torquay is only a short distance away, which means you will be close enough to all of the attractions and highlights, but just far enough away that you are able to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet.

There is also Meadfoot beach located just below our stunning garden, and within a few minutes you and your group could be getting a suntan, playing beach games, and swimming in the sea…all without having to deal with large crowds of people.

Ultimately, you don’t even need to leave the hotel in order to have a group holiday in Torquay to remember, as there are a number of activities put on by our friendly staff. For example, you can take part in jive weekends, line dancing, and saga weekend breaks. The choice is yours.

Let’s not forget about our fine dining restaurant, with a professional chef and local produce, we are sure you and your friends will love the selection of meals on offer, and spend many a happy evening with good company and amazing food.

Then there is our well stocked bar that is open until 11pm, and a variety of live comedy and music acts performing during the most weekend. Perfect if you want to be entertained while staying within the hotel.

If you are feeling more adventurous on your group holiday, then we can also recommend cycling routes and diving sites around the Torquay and Devon area. In fact, we are proud to say that we welcome many cycling and diving groups every year, and this is a tradition that will continue long into the future.

There are a number of attractions only a short distance from The Hotel Balmoral, that would make a great day out for a group of family or friends.

There is Paignton Zoo where you can view animals in their natural habitat, Babbacombe Model Village where things really come to life in the evening when everything is illuminated, Woodlands Adventure Park that features a range of exciting outdoor activities, and many more attractions to keep you busy during your stay in Torquay and South Devon.

We understand just how important your group holiday is to you, which is why we do everything we can to make you time in Torquay as memorable as possible.

The atmosphere in the hotel is warm and cosy, and with many returning guests every year, including many group holidays, it’s no wonder that many people describe their stay at The Hotel Balmoral as “like visiting family.”
