The hotel was absolutely beautiful. It didn't really have a hotel feel. It was older, but very well maintained. The property had so much to offer a small trail, great views, golf, and a pool. It is a beautiful place especially in the fall. We would stay there again.

We have stayed at Palmer House a few years in a row. Always a pleasant stay. Good places to eat near by. Plenty of places for my wife to shop while I fish The Battenkill River. Friendly staff, clean rooms & grounds. A good value in the center of everything. We will return . mickey

It's right in town with outlet shops and food in walking distance. Love the indoor heated pool with complimentary water. There is also a hot tub and gym. The rooms are huge and have everything you need. Staff very friendly. Definitely coming back!

This is the second time we have stayed here - once in a one bedroom suite with a gas fireplace. So nice to have after a day of skiing (we skied both Bromley and Stratton - only minutes away) and again in a 2 bedroom suite with a huge living area and full kitchen (except that there are no dishes,...

This is a nice little palce the room is quite large and the bed nice and hard and comfortable. Really all in all a nice place to stay without being very remarkable. It does manage to be secluded while being easy walking distance to town.

Thank you for your concise review of the Palmer House. It is notable that we can be right in town and yet feel very much out in the country amidst the 22 acres of well-manicured lawns and gardens. During the winter months it's easy to miss the 9-hole par-3 golf course, outdoor pool, tennis courts and stocked trout pond so... More

Our room was very nice and large with a king bed, sofa, wing back chair, desk and armoire with tv. It looked as if it had been redecorated and was very clean. We look forward to staying at the Palmer House on our trips to Manchester in the future. The winter rate was in effect so we really got our... More

We stayed in one of the suites the first weekend February. The suite was lovely. There was a comfy sitting area that had sliding doors out to the deck ( which was unfortunately covered with snow), a dining area that had a table with 4 chairs, and a small kitchenette with fridge, microwave, and sink. The bedroom had a king... More

Hello and thank you for your delightful review. As you described the coziness of the Suites, I felt like I was right alongside you... especially at the impact of joy at discovering the enormous & spectacular bathroom! (That is my favorite part!) I do regret the lack of magnifying mirrors which I agree would be a wonderful bonus. And you... More

I stayed here while skiing at Stratton. It is conveniently located near restaurants and shopping in Manchester. The room was very large and comfortable. It was very clean and seemed freshly updated and painted. I liked the separate bathroom area with a large counter and coffee maker. There is a big closet there for your ski boots, jackets, etc. My...

Hello and thank you for your nice review. Location so often seems to be the key to success but when finding a place to stay overnight, one also hopes to find a clean and well-arranged room as well. I am glad to hear you found all of that at the Palmer House. Both Stratton and Bromely are an easy drive... More

We originally had lodging reservations about 1/2 hr from Manchester which turned out to be very disappointing. So we headed into Manchester where we had intentions on spending the next day shopping. We stumbled upon this beautifully manicured and clean motel style lodging right in town. Walked in and was pleasantly greeted by Amy. After hearing our story, she immediately... More
