The hotel kerb appeal is amazing, but inside would need a fortune spent to bring it up to modern day standards. Room was ok, if a little tired, and breakfast would be classed as satisfactory at best. On a positive, location, and views from hotel are great for visiting the beautiful town.

We stayed here on a deal we'd purchased through Spa Breaks. The hotel is a little tired and needs some money thrown at, I imagine it was beautiful in its day, the problem is it's staff. We went in the spa, a very small steam room and a pool that was full of kids, but the hours treatment and the... More

We visited the Palace for afternoon tea as part of a Groupon Deal. Food was lovely and really nice atmosphere. We had the sparkling wine option as well and wine was also nice. Service was quick also. Friendly staff and nice surroundings.

The main theme of this review is the fact that to stay at this hotel with a vehicle will cost you £5 per night! This is a car park in the hotel grounds, so is not even one which is owned run by another company, It's purely a way of extorting more money out of people who have already paid... More

Our room was very big and spacious and could have done with updating but served our needs adequately and the beds were very comfortable. The location of the hotel is excellent staff were friendly and courteous and the breakfast was of a decent standard, was fresh... More
