I attended conferences in this hotel many times and stayed a few times too - so I feel quite affectionate towards the Palace. Its set in wonderful gardens with a walk down to the sea in a beautiful cove. Unfortunately it is looking a bit tired. My room was cold as the heating is not effective for the size of...

just come back from a 3 night stay in this old but very regal hotel. Everything about it was impeccable. the staff (the receptionists, the porters. cleaners and restaurant staff) were most accomadating. Nothing at all was too much trouble. The food was to die for with everything piping hot and served up beautifully. We never thought that we would...

Stayed here mid November for three nights. Out of season so excellent deal. Upgraded to superior twin overlooking the gardens. Quiet. Large and comfortable even if the decor could do with a touch of tlc. Staff extremely helpful and polite. Dinner first class especially the sirloin one evening. Service is faultless. Breakfast excellent. Swimming pool very good. If you don't...

Our room was large, and well decorated. The bed was very comfortable and for once had soft pillows. we had plenty of towels and toiletries. Fresh bottle...

Stayed two nights month ago. Beautiful gardens and grounds. Rooms reasonable size, some of them have been refurbished. Bathrooms could do with up-dating, especially the showers. Clean and comfortable, pillows very hard, beds quite soft, need new mattresses. Very small television, limited channels. Having said all that, it has an air of elegance down stairs in the reception rooms, high...

A relatively late check in was handled well and given my key to room 343. A large single room (with single bed), old style TV with limited channels and very poor reception and old style bathroom with limited toileteries. My late supper ordered from room service was OK but that was all. Breakfast is where you see the lack of...

Stayed here during a three day trip to celebrate birthday in June. The hotel is nice however looks from the website to be a luxury stay this would have been true had they not continued to use the 70's decor and facade. Pool facilities are good and lovely grounds.

A superb location with beautiful gardens, excellent food and polite service from staff. Many of the bedrooms and bathrooms seem to need modernisation, but once you've adjusted to that, I think you will have a very pleasant stay, as we did. Tucked away from the centre of Torquay, but within easy reach in one direction, and a short walk from...
