The first thing to say about this hotel is hat the staff, without exception, are lovely and attentive. They are what make the hotel. I spent 3 nights in this hotel and it was 3 too many. The bed was comfortable but otherwise the accommodation leave a lot to be desired. The hot tap in the bath was a dribble... More

Visited for a works Christmas party. The food was fantastic (evening 4 course meal and breakfast buffet). Cannot fault the communal areas, however, our room was very dated, slightly grubby and we both woke up with bites on our legs! (in December). Had we have been paying the full going rate for the room we would have refused to stay,... More

And for the past ten years or so in early January. The old hotel is a little tired in part, some of our group ( 13 of us this time) were not as happy with the food at night, but as a vegetarian, all my meals ( probably freshly cooked) were first class. The T V in our room, 223... More

We returned to the Palace again this year, it was another exceptional break with fantastic food and outstanding staff who are always courteous, friendly and willing to help. We will be back again. Happy new year to Mr Uphill and all of his staff. Mike Yeates

When you look at the very diverse reviews on TripAdvisor you will see that the rooms need updating and that this is a hotel that may have seen better days. This is true......but...The atmosphere at the Palace is relaxed, comfortable and you truly feel you are being looked after. ALL the staff we met went out of their way to... More
