We got a great late deal to stay at The Palace Hotel and it was worth every penny. Our only regret is that we only stayed one night and two would have been great. We expected the most basic room they have and I think it probably was as it was facing the rear of the hotel but it was... More

Have just come back from a mid week break at the Palace.Was booked into a single at the front of the building.Small but seemingly adequate, I did clock the bed on arrival which I thought small at the time but then forgot about it until I actually got into it that night. To be blunt it was a child's bed,... More

We recently celebrated my lovely Dad's 90th birthday here, having Afternoon Tea. All I can say is delicious!! I have had a fair few Cream Teas to compare it to, and the scones were exquisite, and it was brilliant value. To add to this it is a lovely location, and the staff were delightful. Especially Neil, what a true professional,... More

I recently spent a short family break at this marvellous hotel, with family members ranging from 22 to 87 years old. There are so many facilities and there was something for everyone. I particularly enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor pools, while my husband and son played golf. We all played table tennis and indoor and outdoor tennis. Fabulous! In... More

Hotel lobby looks impressive. Staff friendly but literally the worst hotel room I have ever seen. Small. Cold. Cheap bed. Tiny tv. Tiny bathroom. Flat pillows. Thin blanket. Stained carpet. Flaking paintwork. Awful. Never again. Don't believe the website!

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
