We originally booked to stay in another hotel, which unfortunately had had issues with bookings, meaning we were unable to stay there. Thankfully there was a room available at The palms. Despite the rubbish start to our trip, Judith was so kind and welcoming. She showed us to our room and couldn't be anymore accomadating. She was kind enough to... More

We stayed here for just one night as we managed to get an extra day's holiday from work but the hotel we were staying in over the weekend was fully booked. Room was on the top floor and contained everything we needed, breakfast was cooked fresh and was very nice. The owners were really nice and helpful. I would definitely... More

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.
