This was our first stay at the Palace. We booked late for 2 nights, so only a standard room with no sea view. The room was what you would expect from a *** standard room, clean and comfortable. What sets this hotel apart from other hotels are the staff, nothing was to much trouble. Food was very good and David... More

First time at this lovely hotel. Can't wait to visit again. Great location with ample parking. The food is outstanding - compliments to the dining room staff especially Sue, David and Philomena. Bedrooms are very comfortable and well equipped. Lots of comfortable seating both inside and out. A real jewel on the Torbay coast.
