Good value for the area. Very clean. Staff is helpful and friendly. Grounds are immaculate. Just down the road from downtown shops and restaurants, so convenient but not noisy location. Wonderfully firm matresses and pilows.

Wonderful property - greeted and welcomed by very friendly staff in office. Encouraged us to try their fishing pond, and have light breakfast and coffee in office. Nice views, very clean property and rooms. Great location, too. Room was spacious, TV with HBO, nice little patio with chairs. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay here again!

The Palmer House resort is not a typical motel. There is a mixture of rooms available among beautifully kept grounds. You are able to relax or play a little 3 par golf on the premises, croquet, tennis or shuffleboard. You are within walking distances to many outlet stores or an easy drive to area attractions. I highly recommend this facility... More

Hello and thank you for taking time for a review. You are correct, the Palmer House is anything but typical, and we like it that way! Hans Palmer started the ball rolling over 60 years ago and the resort has grown and flourished on its well-maintained 22 acres ever since. We are so glad you found us and we look... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights, we were in town for a half marathon. This place was very very clean, very well kept and cozy. The rooms were a tad out dated but clean and comfortable. We liked that it had a mini frig and a separate sink and cabnets like a small pantry. Which was great... More

We love the Palmer House. Another great stay. Rooms are comfortable and roomy, the grounds are always immaculate and beautifully landscaped. We also enjoy the 9 hole chip and putt around the property if we don't have time for a full round of golf. The breakfast room is a nice way to start the day. Would recommend this resort if... More

Palmer House is well maintained. The grounds are lush. The buildings in great repair and the amenities are what you would expect from an older facility. It is close to most other places you would like to visit while staying in Manchester. The prices are reasonable and the staff extremely accommodating. The decor is a bit dated but clean. Overall...
