We attended the function mentioned by the previous poster. We had a good sized peaceful ensuite room to the right handside of the hotel. The room heating was on the blink and couldn't be fixed whilst we were there. Additional convector heaters were supplied which resolved the problem. Good food was served by pleasant attentive staff throughout our stay in... More

We checked in on 17/02/15 to enjoy a 3 night (4 day) holiday at the Palace Hotel. From our arrival through to departure we were entirely satisfied with every aspect of our holiday. We were allocated room 14 and our friends (who had actually done the arranging) were in room 15. I can highly recommend these rooms as having stunning... More

Food excellent, the room was excellent, lovely bed, dual aspect view, albeit not over the sea, but as we didn't request one, it was our fault. Anyway, there was plenty to... More

We stayed at this fantastic hotel for four nights for my husband’s 50th birthday and we enjoyed every single moment we were there. We are frequent visitors to Paignton but have never stopped at the Palace hotel but will definitely stay there and nowhere else now. We were in Room 15 and the view of the sea was awesome, the...

In no particular order: tremendous food with well thought out menus,the friendliness of the staff,very comfortable bedrooms, well appointed public rooms,the high standard of cleanliness and the location.... right on the seafront, so ask for a sea view if possible. Each year we stay here and... More
