So why take a valentines weekend break in Torquay? Here are a few reasons…

Romantic walks

Torquay is a walkers paradise, which means if you and your partner want to set off on foot and explore the local area, there are many options for you to do so. In fact, one of the best walking paths in Torquay is located right outside the Hotel Balmoral.

Starting next to the beautiful and secluded Meadfoot beach, your trek will take you towards Thatchers Point and Ansteys Cove, both great places to spend a couple of hours.

It’s then possible to take a casual stroll onto Babbacombe beach, where you can enjoy a romantic meal or a few drinks, before heading on back to The Hotel Balmoral under the moonlight. Valentines breaks don’t get any better than that!

Meadfoot beach

As mentioned earlier, Meadfoot beach is right outside the hotel, and when the weather is right (we enjoy a very mild February with many days of sunshine), it is an excellent place to spend some time with that special someone just watching the boats pass by and taking in the coastal scenery.

You will be pleased to hear that Meadfoot beach has recently been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag, making it one of the cleanest, safest, and most pleasant beaches in the UK.

Torquay promenade

A popular location for couples is Torquay promenade, with its palm trees and relaxed atmosphere it feels more like a European city such as Paris or Venice than an English seaside resort.

Enjoy a quiet afternoon strolling around and doing some window shopping, before settling down for a few drinks looking out towards the illuminated bridge. It is days like this that will give you a valentines break to remember for many years to come.

The Hotel Balmoral

The perfect place to spend your Valentines day in Torquay is at The Hotel Balmoral. We place strong emphasis on “service with a smile” and do everything in our power to make sure you have the perfect time. That’s why we welcome back returning couples every single February, with many of our guests describing their experience as “just like visiting family.”

Make your valentines break in Torquay extra special, with our selection of cheap deals designed to make The English Riviera affordable for everyone. There is a range of different rooms to choose from and even sea views available, which we guarantee will make your stay with us totally memorable.


Temporary Closure until 30th April – COVID 19 

In line with government advice about avoiding non-essential travel, and the increased risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus, it is with great sadness that we must announce that Balmoral will temporarily close.

The closure will initially be until Thursday 30th April 2020 inclusive. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and take advice from the appropriate authorities, and we will only reopen when it is clear that it is safe to do so. If this means that we have to extend the closure beyond 30th April, we will ensure we update you.

What this means is that we will now have to defer all bookings for anyone who was planning to visit us during this closure period.

Rebook for a future date: We very much look forward to the day when all of this is over and we can welcome you back to the Balmoral – With this in mind, we are looking upon this as a postponement, not a cancellation. We very much hope you will want to postpone your holiday and rearrange it for a later date. You can therefore move your booking to any available date this year, we will retain your deposit to be used against this amended booking. If you elect to move your booking to a date with a different seasonal rate, we will need to charge you the new rate, which may be higher or lower, depending on which season you choose.

If you have booked with a voucher then we can move your booking to another off-peak period – which will now be the Autumn. (October onwards) 

 We appreciate that this will be disappointing news for all those who enjoy staying with us,  We would like to thank you for your patience, understanding and support in these exceptional circumstances .

If you have a another date you would like to transfer your booking to please email us at 

 We will only be taking a limited number of calls during this time. 

Please stay safe everyone and we are looking forward very much to the day, when we can throw open our doors to you all and welcome you back into the warmth and comfort of Balmoral  And when we do, we can assure you that it will be a time to remember
