Latest in a long line of visits for us, and not the last either - we find that The Palace meets all our needs at a reasonable price. It's worth paying the small extra for a Club room as the views over the green and towards the sea are very relaxing! We found the staff to be great and service...

The food and service was excellent. Hotel is a bit old fashioned and does not have air conditioning. Had to leave the windows open but that was not a problem. The only other fault was that the mattress was too soft for me as I suffer from a back problem, but the room was of a tidy size and with...

Having moved to Paignton three years ago, thought it about time we tried the Palace for evening meal, my wife ordered two starters but both to be served at the same time as my steak, needless to say they served the two starters, but no steak. My Wife reluctantly started her meal without me, although the Scallops were ok, the...

General M, Manager at The Palace, responded to this review

Dear 2907rob I am very sorry you were disappointed with your recent experience in our restaurant. Two starters at the same time as a main, is a rare request, and although not an excuse I feel there was some confusion with the staff. In follow up to your visit and review, we are re assessing the process we use to...

A warm welcome by the reception staff - paperwork done and pointed to the room (if asked for a porter service is on offer). The room (a Club room) facing the seafront was a medium size, clean but tired with stains on the carpet and wear and tear seen around the fixtures and fittings. The bed was firm but comfortable....

Dear AMD secret shopper I am very pleased you were impressed with the standard of our hotel and the quality of our leisure facilities. The Wi fi not working was a disappointment that I am sorry for. There was a fault with the equipment, and being bank holiday there was a delay before we could get the engineer in to...

Booked lunch same day as non residents. I didn't research prices or hotel first which I normally would do. I must say our Sunday lunch was marvellous, food perfect and the service was second to none. Not knowing how much the bill was likely to be I must admit I was astonished on how reasonable it was, a very pleasant...

Had a short break here recently and came away very satisfied with everything as previous reviewers have itemised. A most comfortable and warm hotel . Single room had all it needed but was extremely small and cramped. Public rooms were beautiful and tastefully decorated . Staff were most courteous and professional and were eager that you had a good experience...
