The Palmer House is a very clean, comfortable and safe place to choose if going to Manchester. The rooms are large and plenty of closet space. Continental breakfast available each day was convenient. The best part is you can walk into town if you want to shop or dine.

This is a lovely place for a getaway. We stayed 3 nights in a suite with a balcony overlooking the trout pond. A surprise was the lighted fountain in the center of the pond. Our suite was very large and extremely clean. TV in both the bedroom and living area. Breakfast was good, although a little limited in choices. He... More

This is a New England gem! Beautiful grounds! Large clean rooms with separate dressing area. You can walk to downtown Manchester. Great restaurant at the end of the driveway, too! I always stay here when I'm in Manchester!

Here for a conference at the equinox, didn't feel like paying equinox prices. I can't call it quaint or charming. It has its plusses - clean and spacious king room. Great location, lovely service. Honor $2 "breakfast"... continental stuff. They are adorable though, they put the paper plates on "pewter" chargers.

We had a wonderful weekend again at the Palmer House in Manchester. We arrived about 12:30 and were thrilled to know our rooms were available! We checked in and began our vacation.

Hello and thank you for your lovely review! It was exciting to read about your happy experiences as you walked us through the Suite...but what a crushing blow at the end! I felt badly that you did not have the grand finale you had hoped for. I'm sure you're right; your car was packed and gone...easy to assume you had... More

The Palmer House bills itself as a resort. It is not, but that aside it is well worth consideration if you are needing a place to stay near Manchester VT. It is just outside the main village and easily found on Main Street. The decor is nice motel but the rooms are larger than normal for a motel and the... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review us. I appreciated your comment of being "something more than a motel" as we have the ease of parking just outside your door but the pleasure of a clean, spacious room opening to a lovely outside-courtyard where the flowers are soon to be in full bloom. I do have to... More

Rooms are very large and clean and very comfortable. Staff was very helpful in choosing dining and antique shopping. The grounds were kept immaculate and there are lots of activities for both young and old. They have an indoor and outdoor pool and exercise room. Of course they are located within a golf course. Views were very pretty.

My wife and I spent the weekend recently at the Palmer House. We had a king size bed accommodation. The room was very large. It had a king sized bed, couch, table, wing chair, and desk. Even with all that furniture, the room was open and very airy. The bed was comfortable and the room overall was very clean. Housekeeping... More
