Stayed 4 nights from 11th to 15th July in room 6, it was lovely and spotlessly clean. Paul and Avril are fantastic hosts. Breakfast was first class and cooked to order. Town centre and beach were only a 5 minute walk away. This hotel/B&B has a brilliant classic movie theme to all rooms, with posters and photos of all the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Blue Palms hotel for 3 nights in July. Paul and Avril couldn't have been more welcoming, and have a great sense of humour, Paul will even park your car for you. Breakfast was exceptional, the room was perfect and the location was quiet yet very near to all the amenities. We can't fault... More

First impressions great - very welcoming hosts, but without being too intrusive. Car parking at the back and side of the hotel. If you're expecting all modern glass and steel then this isn't the place for you. Not a wet room in sight! What you do get is very clean accommodation that has the feeling of being quite homely.

Stayed here for 2 nights in room 7 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Room was bright, very clean with en suite and tea/coffee facilities. Paul and Avril were very welcoming and made our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was cracking and a wide range of choice. Will definitely stay here again.

Just returned from 3 nights at the Blue Palms. We were greeted by Paul and Avril and were immediately treated like we were old friends. We stayed in the Audrey Hepburn Room which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was superb with a great choice of dishes to choose from.
