This is truly the definition of lost grandeur, old and tired is the best description and eating in such a cavernous room leave little atmosphere. The food was OK but eating out and looking for better atmospheres is an absolute.

I would heartily recommend this place to anyone of any age,and I hope that the... More

Lovely hotel, with beautiful gardens. Room was absolutely spotless, very spacious, and had everything we needed. 24 hour room service came in handy when we fancied a bottle of Chardonnay upon returning from eating out... Though this unfortunately meant we then missed breakfast. Hotel is well situated, and close by to the bars, restaurants and main sea front, which is... More

We have just returned from a week at the Palace - this time travelling as a family with 2 teenage girls. From the moment we arrived and saw our lovely adjoining garden-view rooms and the sun shining, we knew we were in for a great time. We loved spending sunny days by the outdoor pool, in-between rounds of golf and... More

The outside of the building very shabby though have to say the hotel ground well kept. The hotel had a damp smell about it which... More

We could only have a standard room on the first night as that was all was available, and then move to a garden view... More

We stayed for two nights in July. Staff could not have been any more friendly and helpful and were great with the kids. The hotel grounds are beautiful and the amenities are great. I found that the general decor especially in the rooms was tired and very much in need of an update. Rooms lack air conditioning and when we... More

We stayed for four nights at the Palace, our third stay in three years. The Palace is not on the sea front, instead it has a view of its own nine hole golf course, and beautiful gardens. The outdoor swimming pool is also on view. The rooms are well serviced, and looked after by the staff, but they need a... More
