My wife discovered this motel 13 years ago while on a shopping trip to Manchester. We've staying at the Palmer House a couple times a year since. We have always had an enjoyable experience. Rooms are always clean and spacious. The staff is friendly and helpful.

My wife and I just recently stayed Saturday night in a suite in room 71. It was off season and we had a relaxing time. They gave a discount of $190 since it was our first time. We liked how close it was from Manchester center and loved the view of the mountains and the trout pond. The employees were... More

Why did we not find this place earlier. For a "Motel" it was equivalent to a hotel and more! Set in spacious grounds, the rooms very large and roomy almost twice the size of the place we stayed at the beginning of our trip to Vermont for cheaper. The breakfast optional extra was ample for us - cereals, toast &... More

Hello and thank you for taking time for a review. We, too, wish you found us earlier...but at least you found us now! So great to hear how pleased you were with the room size and price. And I never thought of it before, but I agree that the location for the fridge is key to a good night's sleep.... More

A great all season accomodation. The property is on the style of a motel with large, comfortable and clean rooms. The property is spacious with a Pitch & Putt Golf Course, Indoor Pool and pleanty of open spaces for a leisure walk. Close to the center of Manchester's restaurants and stores. We went up with a party of six and... More

Hello and thank you for your fine review! We are always pleased to read one that shows appreciation for the cleanliness and spaciousness of our rooms, as well as its amenities and location. I was dismayed, however, to see the service didn't get quite as good a rating as the rest. Being that there's always room for improvement, I would... More

Was there on a buisness trip. Matresses have plastic covers which have to be removed to get a good nights sleep. Lights on the patio shine through the windows until midnight. Must have air conditoner on in order to keep the mold smell at bay. To top it off no fridge no microwave and no remote for television. Luke warm... More

Hello and thank for taking the time to write us a review. It was distressing, however, for us to read as we were all perplexed to hear of your concerns. Upon a closer look, what I have discovered is as follows: - The mattress pads are a blend of cotton and impermeable nylon. - All curtains have a black-out liner... More

Room was spacious and well furnished, with a generous seating area. It was a little dark. Everything was clean and in good order. The layout is motel style. I was able to park close to the rear door but our front door opened on to a large lawn with loungers, well away from vehicles. Facilities included indoor and outdoor pools... More

Hello and thank you for your very nice review. It was good and factual and it made us sound quite efficient! You may note that due to the energy efficient light bulbs, it may seem to be dark at first, but the whole room brightens up in short order. The good news is that on a sunny day, every room... More

Highs: suites very well appointed, comfortable, and spacious. Property was beautiful - from the tennis courts to the pool to the stocked fishing pond. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. Lows: really, not very many. Fitness room had equipment that worked well but was dated. Not much sense in having a full kitchen if there is no silverware, dishes, or... More

This is our escape, go to place, in Manchester. We always stay in the suites, over looking the beautiful pond and stream. The view of the mountains peek through the lovely tall trees as we enjoy an evening beverage on the back deck. It is an adult playground, if you want a little golf, in door and out door swimming...

What do you want when you vacation 6 hours from home? A quiet, comfortable, inexpensive place, not too many frills, but a lovely setting in the heart of the Manchester, Vermont mountains!

Drove in the back entrance by mistake and was concerned that we had picked an old 50's style motel. However, at check in the staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions and recommendations.

Wow, thank you for that great review...it sounded like a well-written advertisement for the Palmer House! Too often the word "motel" conjures up negative images. Yet, we feel the layout of each room having easy access for check-in, as well as their surprising spaciousness prove otherwise...as you have duly noted. Since you mentioned the "back entrance", you also saw how... More
