Spent a weekend here in September with my daughter and what a wonderful hotel it was. We each had a room with a sea view which was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was part buffet, part ordered. Had a full English both days and thoroughly enjoyed it. Only had bed and breakfast so cannot comment on the... More

This is a really lovely hotel. No complaints at all. We stayed here for two nights on he 09th September to the 11th September, after a 5 day stay at the Headland Hotel in Torquay, loved the room, it was only a standard room but was fine for the 2 nights. The bed was comfortable, the room was warm and... More

I have just returned from a 4 night stay with my elderly parents and can not praise the staff high enough.Every member of staff is respectful of the older guests which in my opinion is quite unique,so often they are treated with irritation or even amusement. My mum was made to feel special rather than a bother when I returned... More

Excellent hotel centrally situated opposite the pier, short walk from the station and harbour. Really helpful staff, great breakfast, excellent food in the restaurant and plenty of it. Old fashioned hotel and standards, good sized room and clean. Awoken by recycling bottles being collected and delivery the following morning which was a pity, otherwise very good hotel would stay again.

We returned to The Palace Hotel over the Bank Holiday weekend having visited previously some 5 years ago and we were not disappointed. This is a wonderful hotel which I believe is 3***but in my view is better than some 5*****.. It was nice to see some of the staff who served us last time. This is about old fashioned... More

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
