Stayed for 3 nights for some R&R. Friendly welcome from the owner on arrival. Great location only 5 minute walk to the harbour . Great breakfast and lovely room. Ample parking at the rear. Well worth a visit. Definitely will return.

The Palms hotel is situated within 5 minutes walking distance from the town centre and shops, however, it is uphill with further steps up to the hotel from the road so you have to be fairly fit! Check in was fast and efficient with the hosts most welcoming and informative with any questions we asked regarding the local restaurants and... More

Thank you for your very kind review. Yes we do know that behind the hotel it is tight to park and that there are only two spaces there. However we do have a small car park which is 50 yards up the road and that is easy parking with plenty of room. Also it should be noted we do not... More

I'm just in the process of booking another stay next month (hopefully). A nice friendly and sort of homely hotel. I had a single room with a large double bed. It was very comfy. I stayed in one night reading and making use of the tea making facilities. It had a well appointed en-suite too. Other guests I met at... More

So this was our first holiday without children for 13 years and we are so glad we chose The Palms Hotel. The welcome was so friendly we were blown away (Judith is certainly a great host). Our room was small as expected, but so well presented and clean. The inclusion of a table top refrigerator was great as I was... More
