We have stayed previously at the Palace four times for Christmas but this year also included New Year with friends. Many of the rooms have been refurbished and are lovely- as our friends said "For a hotel bedroom this is good as it gets". Our room, which we have had three times previously is "tired" but due for refurbishent soon. The atmosphere is so friendly as soon as you walk through the door and all the staff could not be more pleasant and helpful. The food is always gorgeous but the festive meals exceptional. The only problem is that after a huge breakfast there is, over Christmas, a large lunch, afternoon tea with lovely cakes followed by a four course dinner that it is difficult to find enough room to do it all justice! Christmas was an outstanding time but New Year was also excellent - the best we have ever had for food, entertainment, attention and organisation and we had a truly exceptional time.The hotel was beautifully decorated, piano during meals, handbell ringers, a table magician etc. Our friends - very frequent "cruisers" said their time was quite as good as being on a top grade cruise. From talking to many people all say the Palace is now easily the best hotel in Torquay.
We, and two lots of our friends have booked for next Christmas and New Year but we are very likely to go at least once during the year in addition!
