Having recently returned from the Palace where everything was as good as the last time we hope the change of chef will not alter the amazing menu. The staff could not do enough to make our stay memorable. The rooms were brilliant and we made good use of all of the amenities. A relaxing lounge in the evening with music...

Attentive reception staff, friendly barmen and waiting on staff who treated me like a king. A thoroughly enjoyable stay - just a shame I couldn't stay longer. The early morning run around the gardens and down to Anstey Cove was very rewarding with stunning views. Cheers guys

I have just returned this weekend from my third visit to The Palace Hotel in recent years and I have still to be disappointed. Each occasion I have visited the hotel has been on a trip with a group of friends so I probably differ slightly from other reviewers and their expectations. We travelled on one of the hotels advertised...

Mine was the former. The price I paid, including breakfast was incredible and I hope that this review is objective to the reader. The hotel is an icon and in its hay day would probably have been very very expensive to stay in. Unfortunately, although on the face of it the Palace still is a luxurious, and no doubt popular...

Leaving a poor review when we paid very little goes against the grain, but try as I might I cannot recommend this hotel. This is a splendid old building but faded grandeur is the order of the day. Check in was ok, not overly welcoming but ok. Room was again ok, but I have a personal dislike for blankets rather...

This hotel retains some of the charm and grandure of the heyday of Torquay. Plenty of space, our room was huge though it was a little dated. The staff were wonderful We found the restaurant to be good too. We enjoyed a four course set menu in a huge formal dining room (this as part of our package) and had...
