Very comfortable accommodations, minutes from outlets and restaurants! The staff was welcoming and ready to help us secure dinner reservations at nearby restaurants. A continental, self-serve breakfast is available for a small charge and can be eaten in a charming breakfast room or on the adjacent deck.

We enjoyed staying at the Palmer House motel last weekend. Staff provided a clean, comfortable room (though we would opt for a king size bed next time), breakfast was included which was delicious and the motel is located right in the heart of Manchester. I especially liked the separate bathroom and extra sink/get ready area of the room.

Stayed 5 nights during summer. Beautiful grounds with lots of flowers. Room was large and well-maintained and cleaned. Fun stuff to do that we enjoyed included the pool and attached hot-pool, croquet, and shuffleboard. But they have lots of other activities. Room was large, and everything was in great condition. Mattress was a bit hard for my taste (had to... More

We greatly enjoyed our recent stay at the Palmer House. Our king room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Our in-room fridge was a nice convenience, though the freezer section didn't keep our ice cream frozen. The continental breakfast ($2.50/person) was fine, served in a pleasant breakfast room. Hotel grounds are scenic and well-maintained. We had fun playing pitch & putt... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The motel is very well maintained and the grounds are immaculate. I think the actual property is better in person than the web site. The room was very clean; the bedspread and drapery could use an updating. Strong smell of bleach on the sheets as well as the towels. Bathroom very clean. Beds very... More

Found The Palmer House online. Thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Lots to keep you busy: 9-hole golf course, two tennis courts, croquet and swimming in the outdoor pool. (There is even an indoor one). Beautiful grounds with beautiful scenery. You can even walk into town. Highly recommend The Palmer House.
