Very impressive, the aptly named Grand Hotel delivers on all counts. The service is superb, the staff very efficient and welcoming. Our room offered some breathtaking views across Paignton sea front and Torbay. The cost for our short break offered excellent value for money with the full English breakfast providing the icing on the cake. We would thoroughly recommend the... More

Enjoyed a week at the Palace (4-4-04 to 11-4-14) and I'm delighted to report that our stay was even better than last time. Very impressed with the waiters who are extremely polite and took time to have a chat with us, and have matured over the last 2 years to be courteous and professional. The breakfasts are still as good... More

I chose the palace after looking at Paignton hotels on the net. I stayed for one night on 07/04/14. I was impressed with the appearance of the hotel, and even more impressed with the decor when I entered. The reception staff were both pleasant and efficient. I was given room with a sea view that was very well furnished and... More

Rooms were well equipped and spotlessly clean and the hotel faciltities were second to none, with the added bonus of an indoor pool. The bar areas and patios were spacious and the food, bed,breakfast and evening meal was... More

We choose this hotel based on the reviews and were not disappointed. We stayed in a executive room with a view over the pier - nice clean room and a good size. We particularly liked the tea/coffee with biscuits when we arrived and the phone call to see if we were happy with our room. We enjoyed all our meals... More
