We stayed recently at the Palace with my wife's elderly mother, our daughter and her partner.
The staff were very helpful and the rooms were brilliant, The food was extremely good and the menu was varied, no problems at all, we recommend this hotel to anyone looking for good value and excellent food, we will certainly visit again! Denise and John Harrod, Southampton. 18/4/12.

We have just spent a 2 night break at the Palace with our extended family - 11 of us in total. We had a relaxing and extremely comfortable stay.
Our room overlooked the sea and offered comfortable beds, good facilities and plenty of space for the 4 of us.
Both the breakfast and evening meals were good although the children's menu was limited and lacked imagination.
The pool was an added bonus and thoroughly enjoyed by young and old a like.
The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Just came back from spending 2 nights at this fabulous hotel.
Room was so comfortable, nice view over the sea. Fresh fruit, bottle of water, nice biscuits and plenty of tea, coffee and even hot chocolate on the refreshment tray.
Great check-in, we were told to take our bags to our room and come back to reception to order complimentary tea or coffee, which we did - even got some lovely cookies.
Evening meal was really good - great choices, lemon sorbet between starter and main course, plenty of food, lovely puds and then cheese and biscuits with coffee and mints, served in the lounge if wanted.£10 per person for all of this - I don't know how they do it!
House wine was good and the price very reasonable.
Nightly entertainment was good.
Spa was well worth a visit.
All the staff are friendly and very helpful.A lovely atmosphere. A lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra and have an executive room.

On the spur of the moment , my husband and I deceided to spend a couple of days away at the seaside. I had looked at the reviews, but was skeptical of the level of service for the rate we were quoted for Dinner Bed and Breakfast. We spent time in the pool,sauna and steam room , relaxed in the comfortable room with seaview and dined on the magnificent repast that was deftly served morning and evening. The only thing that was not perfect was that we could only stay for two days. I am now trying to find time to return as soon as possible. Thank you to all Staff for making an excellent break.
