Lovely hotel, friendly owners, clean rooms, great breakfast. Very close to harbour/bars/restaurants. Great value. Just perfect!! We visited with another couple who enjoyed it just as much as us. It was nice that the owners made the effort to speak to you and make you feel welcome. I would definitely return.

This was a very pleasant experience. The Palms is the most luxurious B&B I have ever stayed in. Everything was delightful, the room, breakfast and the owner. Very comfortable bed with in-room tea/coffee supplied. A very good price at £55 a night (breakfast included) for 2 people. I highly recommend The Palms.

Although there is limited parking and lots of steps the hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. The breakfast choice was excellent , not to missed. Our room (8) had all the usual facilities plus a mini fridge which was a nice touch. Very clean with comfortable beds. Only a few yards from the harbour which was great. Would definitely stay...

Our family of 5, with children 10, 13, 18 stayed for 3 nights. The small hotel is located about 10 minutes walking distance from the harbor, with lots of restaurants and shops and also a scenic walk and museums & attractions. There is a bus stop on the road just outside. The rooms are well equipped and nice, but be... More

We booked in for seven nights, and it was a lovely relaxing stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was really good, best nights sleep in a long time. Breakfast was always good, cereals, toast, full English, all good. Nothing was too much trouble.

The Palms is perfectly located not far from the marina, away from the noisy center and posh areas of Torquay, so it was comfortable for a young couple like ourselves. The room is clean, well decorated, with plenty of amenities including tea facilities , biscuits and even a plug in fridge, sadly no shower gel with the toiletries, but the... More
