Myself, my wife and 2 young children stayed here for 3 nights in August and were very pleased. We originally booked for the Arden Court (just up the road) but they suddenly 'went out of business' and left with no phone call to us or anyone who booked with them. Anyway, The Palms saved our bacon (which incidentally is a very nice part of the full English). Judith and Graham looked after our every need and the family room was just excellent. The whole place was very clean and homely and the location is perfect for the town centre (shops, places to eat etc). So, thank you Palms for a very enjoyable stay and we will definately be back!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2010

I stayed alone in a single, and was completely satisfied with my room. The hot breakfast was delicious, as were the cold items that I could go back for as much as I wanted. The only downside I could see to staying at The Palms would be if it were pretty hot since the rooms don't have A/C, but staying in June was no problem. The owners were nice and quite hospitable. Free parking and free wi-fi were brilliant.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2009

We stayed at The Palms Hotel so we could attend a works Christmas do in Torquay. The owners were very nice and greeted us on arrival and showed us to our room. The room itself could have done with a make over as it was looking a little tired. We had an en suite shower room which suited us.
Breakfast was good with a selection of fruit juices and cereals followed by full English and toast.
The Hotel is in an ideal location for the night life in Torquay.
Located close by is the restaurant "Hooks"-best give this place a miss!!! Try "Biancos" (also close by) an Italian restaurant, it may be pricey but the cuisine is great!!
Limited car parking is available at The Palms.
