nice place after the refurb very helpful staff especially Robyn at the reception . I had booked a twin for Fri/sat night the room was a disgrace there was so much dirt/dust on the furniture I was able to write "CLEAN ME" on practically everything the bathroom was also a big let down there was grime & black hair every where, I complained to Robyn at the desk & it was cleaned but not that well....still hair in the bathroom. The hotel is in a great location the pool was warm and clean I found the Palace to be over all a really nice hotel ..
nice breakfast
friendly staff
good pool
I will be stopping there again but will ask for a clean room.

Just returned after spending two nights at The Palace - very good rates for D, B&B seasonal offer. Hotel very warm and comfortable. All staff were friendly and nothing appeared too much trouble - due to another commitment we asked to eat earlier one night and were supplied with copious amounts of salad and cold meats. Food was of a very high standard complimented by good service. Room had nice sea view and was very clean. Refurbishments are on-going at the moment (ground floor and gardens seem to be completed and look great) but cause little disruption to guests and no doubt will be finished to a high standard.

I enjoyed a one night stay whilst attending a conference in Torquay. The Palace is well located within walking distance of town and promenade.
Plus points: Refurbished to high standards, spacious rooms, good bathrooms. Clean. Excellent restaurant with attentive staff who speak English. Good value for money.
Negative: Nothing to complain about.

A few years ago I would have agreed with the reviewers who saw in this hotel "faded glory" but there have been refurbishments aplenty and, for the price, the accommodation, food and general ambience is excellent.
We had a basic room (no. 17) but with an updated bathroom - and with 2 comfy chairs! Staff excellent and appeared eager to ensure your stay was an enjoyable one. Food good, tasty and excellent waitresses.
The hotel is right on the front so is in a convenient location for the beach - indeed, there are sea views from the lounge and restaurant. Only downside is that there can be noise from the pub along the road (but this didn't affect us).
We have stayed at The Palace a number of times over the past 23 years - and will doubtless be back again!
