This was my first visit to the Palace Hotel, booked through Barnes Travel, Swindon. It exceeded all my expectations. Excellent food in beautifully appointed restaurant, luxurious lounges, pool and fitness facilities. Great evening entertainment. A very well run hotel in every aspect. And sunshine in February! Look forward to a return visit.
