Just come back from a short break from Torquay. We stayed at the palms hotel and found it very good. Staff there were very good and help. And the hotel is not far from the shops and bars which was good for us. Would recommend this hotel.

It was clean, tidy and had plenty of selection for breakfast for young and old. Nothing was too much to ask for and the... More

Driving up the main road a number of hotels were visable but this was the only one who had 'vacancies'. We popped in to check price and were pleasently suprised as had been told £25 more... More
