We stayed at The Palace over the late May Bank Holiday weekend with just over 100 in our party comprising couples and single travellers. As 'party leader' I cannot speak highly enough of the Events Team and especially Jo Shirtcliffe who was consistently efficient, friendly, patient and understanding in the planning of the weekend.
The Palace Hotel was an excellent base. A classic Victorian hotel, most of us loved its grandeur. Staff were in the main friendly, efficient and attentive and the abiding memory of most of our party is of a great weekend in a very suitable venue.
Meals: the buffet breakfast in terms of quality and quantity would be hard to beat. Evening meal: the quality was average and the service was desperately slow,although on one evening when timings were crucial to us the excellent Trish ensured everything worked extremely well.
It would be possible to report other minor glitches, but they were compensated for by many, many positives. With one exception - that tired old lift with a mind of its own! Try getting 100 people - many of them not the niftiest on their feet - downstairs for a particular departure time!
But that said, and to enjoy the charm and ambience, many of us look forward to the opportunity to return to The Palace.
