Arriving after a fairly long drive we were happy to find this resort to have lovely lawns and gardens, nicely appointed rooms and a very nice and helpful staff. It is well within walking distance of the shopping and many eateries of Manchester. You can play miniature golf or a small 3 par course. Better yet as it was not... More

I think the best comment is to say we loved our stay and will be back. EVERYONE we met the five nights we stayed at Palmer House in August, 2014 were repeat visitors. They come back every year. That speaks to the quality of the service that the Palmer House provides. This is a very well run motel that reflects... More

Wow! Thank you for that wonderful review. You made ME want to stay here! Booking for 2 nights and staying for 5...that is really great. Next time, make a reservation for 5 nights and stay for 10...you've got a lot of catching up to do with all the other repeat customers! Looking forward to seeing you again, Sincerely, Tina Fries More

My boyfriend and I drove to Vermont for a weekend vacation and when we were less than a mile from the Palmer House our car broke down. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that we got the car to the correct auto repair shop for our needs. We were so lucky to have chosen Palmer House where... More

Stayed for three nights at this motel. First credit to the staff. Our journey did not take as long as expected and as a consequence we were able to arrive a day early. A phone call at night to the motel to enquire whether this was possible was dealt with efficiently to the extent that the receptionist, Amy, we think... More

The staff was friendly, Rooms were good size and very clean. I thought the price was quite high for a motel. They did have a nine hole par three, if your into golf, also a pool which was a bit small. The grounds were well maintained.

Hello and thank you for taking time for a review. I was sorry to hear you felt the price was on the high side. Although much of the layout is in motel format in that you can drive right up to your room, it is so much more than that. The size of the room along with outdoor seating overlooking... More

My wife and I have been coming to Manchester each summer for many years and almost always stay at the Palmer House. We have tried the pond-view suites, the front house rooms, and the motel style rooms. All have been fine, but for the value we are partial to the motel-style rooms near the front of the property....they are over-sized... More

Hello and thank you for your review. It sounds like you must have stayed with the last guests who sent in a review...you liked all the same things! And what a great over-view of our property. I'm glad you like the layout of the rooms (two sinks always get a thumbs up!) and I agree, they are quite spacious. We... More

My husband and I went to stay there for the weekend and wished we had stayed longer. The property was beautiful and the rooms were exceptional clean and up to date.

We arrived late and the owner gave us a discount. It is pricey for a motel, but the place has many amenities you don't expect at motel. The pool is beautiful, the grounds offer three holes of golf plus a tennis court. You also can have a continental breakfast for $2.50 extra which is a great deal. The rooms are... More

Thank you for your review and a chance to respond to some of your thoughts. Understandably, you would wonder why rooms might be bunched together when other sections appear empty. Usually, this is a case of maintenance (i.e. painting in rooms or carpet cleaning, etc. to keep everything looking fresh for the next guest). At times, we try to paint/clean... More

We visited during the summer after several days of backpacking in the mountains. What a treat!
