The Palace Hotel in Peterhead, Scotland is centrally located in town and an easy walk to shopping, museum, Masonic Lodge and the docks. The complimentary full Scottish breakfast is fantastic and served from 6:30am to 9:30 am. There are 2 restaurants, a bar, and music on the weekends. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The rooms are on the small... More

The whole stay was spoiled by two... More
