“Ideal for me and my daughter”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Lovely B&B run by lovely couple. Clean. Five minutes walk from the harbour. Very friendly, hassle free. Good Breakfast, good value. Stayed 3 times now over the past 6 years and very consistent. Free parking round the back.

Stayed for 2 nights in room 6. From the moment I arrived both proprietors were extremely welcoming and friendly, even helped to park my car! The hotel is located conveniently for torquay and its shops / restaurants yet also in walking distance of the more tranquil villages of Babbacombe and St. Marychurch. There is also a beautiful area of parkland opposite the hotel. Breakfast was delicious with a good choice of cooked and non-cooked options, and the service faultless. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

This was our 3rd trip to The Palms and it was just as perfect as the previous trips. This time we stayed for a whole week and also took along our little dog who was made very welcome also. Our room was lovely and clean with a comfortable bed and very smart en suite shower room. The shower was powerful and had added sparkles!! Breakfast was well cooked and plentiful, with a full english and fruit, cereal and toast. We went out every morning well fed! The Palms is only a short walk from the harbour, shops, pubs and restaurants. Opposite the hotel are the lovely Torwood gardens a nice place to stroll along with the dog. We were able to park the car a short walk away in a large car park that felt secure. All in all a truly lovely place to stay and the owners Graham and Judith are the best. Thankyou both, see you again soon.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a better view, you can see the gardens.

This was one of the nicer places I have had the pleasure of staying in. This charming little hotel is in a perfect location - just a short walk down to the harbour, restaurants & shops. I had a very nice view out my window, looking out onto a beautiful park which was across the street & had a very good sleep there every night in the comfortable bed. There was also the added bonus of the beautiful lounge on the main floor where I could enjoy a drink, as it is a licensed bar. As well, the price was very reasonable. The inn keepers, Judity & Graham were so very nice to me & one could tell they really care about their guests. They serve a delicious, full English, cooked breakfast each morning & I'm sure Judith remembers that I specifically enjoyed the Black Pudding. Thank you, Judith & Graham for everything!

Room Tip: Ask for the room at the front of the hotel which faces the street & park.

Highly recommend this hotel based on our stay this weekend past. The male hotel manager went out of his way to ensure that our stay was perfect & even allowed us to extend our check-out times & leave bags which was a true act of kindness.

Hotel was clean & comfortable with a great view of Torquay & the local park with easy access into the bay & Torquay's main attractions.

We travelled as a group but I would recommend to families or couples equally, a gem.

Room Tip: We stayed in the family room, it was plush & spacious
