My friend and I decided to have lunch at the Palace as I had eaten there several times previously and had enjoyed the quality of the food. My friend had never eaten there, so was looking forward to the experience. We were greeted promptly and showed to our reserved table. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy but it was only 12.15...

We went for lunch here which was nice. The sandwiches were a really good price and very nice. I had the tiger prawns with salad, thought they were quite expensive and not very filling. They were too salty for me which the staff sorted very efficiently. Thought they could have come with some bread or a healthy potato salad. The... More

Rose and I have just returned on Monday 15th Aug from a 4 day break at this Hotel. What a gem. First impressions always count, with the exterior gleaming and stacks of controlled parking (you'll need a code to exit the main (CCTV) car park). Lobby & Lounges well laid out with seemingly new carpets throughout. Nice touch in being... More

Only met friends who were staying there again. Staff were really friendly and helpful and cream tea was exceptional. Our friends told us rooms were very well presented and clean outside spaces kept clean and tidy and seating plentiful.

Good Afternoon Thank you for your nice comments about the cream tea. I am pleased you found it to be exceptional; our scones are freshly made everyday and are popular with the locals. It is nice to know your friends enjoyed their room and outside space. Hopefully we will see you again for more cream tea or afternoon tea. More

Here again, and another lovely couple of days spent in the Palace in Paighton. The staff here are very welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable, they are old fashioned though. The food is amazing a six course meal in the evening served to a very high standard. The staff are very friendly and cant do enough for you.

While looking for hotels in Torquay we came across this 3 star hotel in Paington and bearing in mind previous experience with sea front hotels in Torquay (noise/traffic etc) we thought this hotel may fit the bill, i.e. situated on the sea front on Esplanade Road. We stayed at the end of June. The hotel building (inside and out) and... More

We spent 2 nights at the Palace hotel recently. We had a family birthday there and they catered for us extremely well.The Palace is in an ideal location - right on the pier front and convenient to all that Paignton has to offer.
