Just back from enjoying a lovely 3 night break at the Palace Hotel. This hotel is really a step back in time where standards of service are paramount.
This is a big hotel, and whilst the rooms have every comfort needed they are somewhat dated, albiet spotlessly clean. and in good order. Where the hotel really shines is in its food and beverage operations. Excellent food was enjoyed on each day of my stay, A buffet breakfast was spot on with food staying hot and nicely served by the restaurant staff. Sandwiches and snacks served on the terrace or in one of the many lounge/public areas are excellent and offer exceptional value for money. Evening dinner - chosen from a table d' hote menu was first class. a lovely starter of smoked haddock mousse lined with ham was delightful and a rib eye steak (£6.00 supp) was tender well cooked and served with a plentiful chocie of vegetables and potatoes. Gone is the old sweet trolley and instead are nicely presented homemade puddings from the kitchen. This is an improvement as puddings on trolley on previous visits tended to get messy towards the end of service. The bar area is a blast from the past - with seating placed all around the walls but the staff are extremely pleasant and proffesional. Which seems to be the same with all of the staff. They seem genuinely concerned that your every need is catered for
The hotel is situated a short walk out of town and does not offer sea view rooms this is compensated by its well tended garden setting and free parking for guests. I know some hotels of a similar standard in Torquay charge up to £7.00 a day for the use of car parks.
As a regular visitor to the town and having stayed in all of the four star establishments
this hotel in my opinion wins the crown especialy if you are on a DBB rate. It also boast a huge array of sports facilities from golf to tennis
