Rooms are clean, functional and great view from the massive windows. The restaurant hosts very tastey dinner food (portion sizes alittle smaller than a large appetite like myself would prefer, but 5 courses left me satisfied) breakfast also was well prepared but portion size

All the staff, my room (different each time so far) and the food provide a welcome break where high standards are maintained. This was my fourth stay since December - no stay has proved to be a disappointment. The location and parking are a great help too.

There is one lift and you do not have to pay to use the pool and facilities but you will have to pay for any treatments. The entertainment is varied but suitable for older older members of the Hotel The second floor rooms with sea views are best.

what are the single rooms like
A friend of mine who went to the Palace stayed in one of the singles and it was absolutely fine. If you are on a coach trip they tend to give you the non-sea view rooms facing the street.
