Decided to drive up from jersey for our 5 year anniversary trip. The area is great for driving around and exploring (we love photography), and our king suite was amazing! Very private but extremely responsive staff at the same time. We will be back!

My husband and I came to Manchester for a no kids weekend getaway. I searched many hotels but choose Palmer House. We had a King Suite. Beautiful balcony with awesome views. The room was perfect. Great little kitchenette, huge (really huge) bathroom, comfortable bed and couch. It was off season, but the grounds were tidy and the place was very...

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time for a review. I am very happy to hear you had such a "fantastic visit" with us. The Deluxe Suites truly are hard to leave once you relax in front of the fireplace while enjoying a great view...or immersing in the hot tub in that giant (really huge) bathroom! You chose a...

My friend and I went on a little road trip out of Boston and drove to Manchester. We looked at other places online and opted for Palmer House because their prices were reasonable. However, I'm SO GLAD we didn't spend more and go to one of the other hotels since Palmer House is located pretty centrally. Easily walkable to the...

Stayed over the Christmas holidays. Rooms were clean and quiet but could use some updating (fixtures, paint, etc). Overall it was comfortable and quite spacious. The rooms we were in were drive up motel style. The layout was a bit awkward as the front door to the room is in the bathroom area. We were a bit worried because the...

The room was super! Plenty of drawer space and all sorts of table tops, nooks and crannies, etc. to put all of the stuff during a ski trip.
