I stayed at the Palace for 10 months during 2014, mostly weekdays, but also over a number of weekends whilst working in the area. I was joined regularly by various visiting fellow colleagues who also thought the Palace good, and also superb value. I went there the second week in January, and was having the tinsel and turkey experience by... More

If you want a nice hotel by the sea, this might do. Place felt tired and in need of TLC. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean if a little old and in need of modernisation. Breakfast was very poor with cheep sausages and rubber scrambled egg. Toast was always burnt, even when they bought more! They tried very... More

Dear Readers, This is such a hurtful review. For a start, we pride ourselves on offering our guests a quality breakfast. We don’t have cheap sausages, they are very expensive and come straight from our local butcher. Secondly, I eat breakfast on many occasions here because as the owner, I am always doing spot checks to chase perfection. With regard... More

The conservatory area offers a bright open aspect with comfortable seating and the staff are so friendly making you feel most welcome. The varied lunch menu caters for most tastes and offers reasonably priced dishes freshly made.... More

The Palace Hotel is situated on the seafront and is a very nice hotel. The food is very good and the restaurant very nicely decorated. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little tired but clean, we did not pay for a sea view so only had a view of part of the town. The entertainment... More

family gathering pre xmas, staff helpful, early check in. Our room 37- bases of divan tatty and lighting poor, rooms hot, could not turn off the radiator. Plenty of hot water and quiet. Food was ok.

Stayed back in July 2013. Was fabulous. Staff were marvellous. Food was excellent. Bedrooms were nicely decorated and the beds were really comfortable. The location is ideal, ample parking and a lovely well kept lawn with sun loungers. Highly recommend to anyone.
