    Superb

    The hotel is very grand in nature, with the staff providing excellent service. It was built in the 1920's and all the rooms date back to that period and is excellently decorated. The room I stayed in was a little bit basic but comfortable and clean

    The price of the set dinner is a little expensive.

    We liked the breakfast very good plenty of it, service very good, liked swimming pool inside and out, the sauna the gardens and a very pleasant atmosphere.

    The bathroom in our room was in very poor condition in need of refurbishment.unexceptable for a 4 star hotel. It seems that they have a problem with there cleaning staff.

    An excellent location for this luxurious hotel. The bed breakfast nad evening meal package is excellent value. The staff are extremely helpful and efficiient in the restaurant and the food is of the highest quality. The breakfasts alone set you up for the day! The swimming pool is a wonderful addition as are the sports facilities and do not appear to be over used affording a wonderful experience. The location is ideal for many places in the area as long as you have a car.

    We were ready for a good holiday, after a bad year with our health. This hotel was excellent in every respect, from our arrival to our departure. The staff were attentive to all our needs, and couldn't have done more for us. It was only for four days but it worked wonders for us. We would recommend this hotel without reservation.

    Superb

    It must be 10 years since I last stayed at the Palace. I was very pleased to see that it was just as nice as I remembered it. The decor of all the public rooms has been kept looking fresh and modern, but the character of the hotel has been maintained. The reception area is warm, welcoming and luxurious. The staff are friendly and efficient. I saw 'high tea' being served to the youngest guests and they were being given as much care and attention as any adult in the restaurant. Breakfast was excellent, both in quality of food and service. Our room was good, with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was a little tired but it was spotlessly clean with loads of hot water.The Palace is a very calm, relaxing place to stay. The gardens are beautiful and very well kept. Too much 'modernisation' would spoil this hotel and I think they have got the balance right.

    Not a dislike, a suggestion. A facility to have beauty/spa treatments would really go well here.

    This was very much on the spur of the moment and had glimpsed a view of the hotel on television (Flog it) and decided to book on line. Thought every part of the hotel excellent, food good and transport facilities perfect, very easy to visit Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Kingswear and Dartmouth. In all just what was needed for a short break.

    The staff were all very friendly and gave us excellent service throughout our stay. The hotel is in a great position, and has great views at the rear overlooking there outstanding gardens.

    The entertainment at night was poor, considering it was peak season, but the excellent food made up for it.Our waitress for the week (Emma) was brilliant and could not have been bettered.

    Superb

    The kind and friendly staff. A calm and relaxed atmosphere as a result of the smooth running and efficient management.

    The room was very comfortable. I was staying with my elderly mother. The shower in bath system was totally inaccessible for her. The only walk in showers I saw were beside the pool, down a lot of stairs. We would like to come back but would only stay if there was a room with a walk-in shower and no stairs.
