If you are not up for the beach vacation in Dubai - this is the place to stay! Amazing service (and a lovely upgrade at check-in), nice location and comfortable rooms make it one of the best hotels in the city!

Elegant surroundings. Lovely food and service. Rooms overlooking the garden are lovely. Pity it is so far from Torquay for non car drivers, but buses do stop outside the hotel so it is not too inconvenient. Would definitely recommend.

We have stayed here half a dozen times and will return when we get the chance. The common areas down stairs and really elegant and classy. The bedrooms are pleasant but not elaborate. The food is really outstanding and plentiful and the excellent service is very respectful yet friendly.

OK, so if you want the latest high fashion boutique hotel stop reading this right now. If you want the best stay on the English Riviera or probably anywhere in the UK you better get there quick. Like the vast majority of their guests we have been repeat business over the last 30 years on a regular basis so it's... More

Stayed for 3 nights because we availed of the offer with breakfast and dinner . Me and my partner enjoyed our stay . The place is old but if you really appreciate the architecture and the details on the walls the stairs you would love the place. We walked from the hotel to Torbay it's about 25 to 30 minutes...

Visited this hotel with around 20 others when attending a brass band contest in the local area. We requested early check in at 12 and arrived to be told a few of our rooms weren't ready due to the previous guests still not checked out. We were told they would be ready around 1pm but were going for a rehearsal... More

We recently stayed at the Palace (party of 7) on one of their offers, 3 nights DB&B for the price of 2 nights. We had some reservations as to what our room would be like due to previous reviews however, our room, 146, was quite large, clean and tidy with no mould or damp smells! The bathroom was on the...

A good old fashioned hotel, with old fashioned customer care and service. All staff whether the cleaner, porter, waiter or reception staff are keen to help and ensure that your stay is good. We were greeted with smiles and courtesy and made to feel really special. The food is excellent as is the service. I really couldn't fault it. How... More

My wife and I took our parents for a short (4 nights) stay. We had a very enjoyable time, helped by a very helpful staff, but we were particularly impressed by both the service and the quality of food in the restaurant. Every time we ate in the restaurant it was very busy but we were never overlooked and the... More
