It is a little out of the way, but an easy bus ride down the hill into Torquay harbour. Ample parking, friendly staff. Absolutely wonderful restaurant. Picturesque grounds, excellent breakfast. Rooms slightly dated but very good quality furnishings. Again in the bathroom but the quality of the sanitary ware is top notch. I know it sounds weird, but when you... More

This hotel is a bit odd to say the least as there are some really excellent bits to it and some real shockers at the same time .- the 3 stars I've given it are for the staff who are on the whole lovely and for the food which apart from one cold cooked breakfast was very good. The grounds... More

I stayed at The Palace last week, the price for my stay was very reasonable. The hotel has so much to do, the outside pool I loved and had to myself and the gardens are breath taking. I have to say the staff are the friendliest I have met. The hotel is meticulously clean and the staff obviously take pride... More

Just back from a 2 night stay at the hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We had a refurbished room overlooking the lovely well maintained gardens. Breakfast and dinner - excellent. The range of sandwiches is a good option for lunch also. Found the reception and waiting staff to be very friendly and professional. I especially liked the... More

Yet again the hotel lived up to its high standards. We had a lovely relaxed 3 night stay with good food. Yes some of the bedrooms are tired however the service,cleanliness and the main areas are superb. My only complaint would be that there is a dress code for the evening restaurant and this should be in forced going down... More

Went here for an overnight stay in August 2015. It was a fairly decent hotel actually. £100 a night for the two of us including a whopping breakfast and then free use of the indoor pool which was nice and quiet. Rooms were fine and spacious. Overall pretty good!

Just returned from another lovely stay at The Palace. We have been visiting The Palace regularly for many years and have always found the service and accommodation to be of a very high standard. Whilst still comfortable and relaxing we did feel that the hotel bedrooms needs a little updating. The bathrooms in particular were looking very shabby and my... More
