nice hotel on a grand scale, the gardens are beautiful and extensive, the hotel is quite clean and friendly staff (most of them) it felt a bit like stepping back in time but not in a bad way, the breakfast in the morning was a bit awkward, as we just didnt know what to do, staff were not very helpful...

This is an old style Hotel with very friendly staff. Wonderful and picturesque surroundings. But. My room was dirty, no wifi in the room and the telly is from the beginning of the century. Hah, More tradition than hospitality. Never again.

My family has stayed at the Palace hotel for 25 years, and largely had very positive experiences. However, my last stay (22nd-25th Aug 2015) which on the whole was very pleasant, turned sour when I started noticing bites on myself 24 hours after starting my stay at the hotel. Cutting a long story short, when I returned, I went to... More

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
