“Un bijou / A jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

This hotel is just amazing, room are very large a great bathroom well everything you could expect from an hotel.
What about the service... We arrived very late and a special enveloppe ready for us , people very supportive and nice.
Some of you may think that it is older... Well this is your judgement, of course it is not a brand new one , but the 2 Swimming pools, indoor and outdoor , the golf and the tennis court give you excellent service.in addition the location is great and quiet.
Go...

We had a very positive experience at the Palmer House. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, and great location. Walked to everything in downtown Manchester, including lots of good places to eat and hike.

Sure, the room decor is a little dated, but the beds were comfortable and it was quiet, very clean, and the grounds were immaculate and enjoyable. We used the indoor pool and hot tub, and enjoyed sitting by the outdoor pool on a sunny May day. I even knocked around the 9 hole pitch and putt course on the grounds. We would have stayed longer if our plans hadn't made us move on!

Room Tip: Number 39 is a winner - on the end with easy access to both the indoor and outdoor pool.

Green Features: Gotta love Vermont - truly a green state and Palmer House is living it - even has solar panels on the roof!

We stayed for a relaxing weekend. Well kept clean and great service. Ruth at the front desk was very helpful and gave great recommendations for dinner and activities. Short walk to restaurants and shopping. Great indoor pool, the workout room is small, but very useable. We'll be back!

My daughter and I came for two days in the off season. What a wonderful stay. Everything is immaculate and cozy. This place has many amenities of the larger corporate resorts but without the BS fees, restrictions, and predictable decor. Loved its connections to Manchester offerings: I walked the short trail past their stocked pond thru a lovely marsh (with nesting red-winged blackbirds) into the town's extensive rec area. Great for families. In-town shops and restaurants are only a 5 minute walk. A long paved walkway along rt 7 or the trail entrance to the town rec area will serve well for runners. Loved the staff at the motel, they gave me excellent restaurant recommendations, details about the property and were super friendly. Golf, tennis, indoor and outdoor pool, Ye Olde Tavern (great traditional meal) right next door. Don't miss this special place.

Green Features: Appreciate the green status. The motel is clearly working hard.

Hello and thank you for such a warm and kind review. We certainly appreciate your recognition of our goal to offer a clean and cozy room ("immaculate" is nice to hear!) Our amenities are plentiful and it's good to know you utilized so many of them..in fact, you reminded me of ones we have that I had lost sight of. It's a real plus to continually hear the compliments that our staff receive and boy, do they deserve it! Please do return, we will look forward to it.
Sincerely,
Tina Fries

The hotel was absolutely beautiful. It didn't really have a hotel feel. It was older, but very well maintained. The property had so much to offer a small trail, great views, golf, and a pool. It is a beautiful place especially in the fall. We would stay there again.

I was thrilled to hear you enjoyed the quaint charm of the Palmer House which has been in the same family for 60 years. The owners take a special pride in its upkeep and there is quite a bit to keep up! From the indoor and outdoor pools, to the 9-hole golf course, to the views....ok, well we can't take credit for that but those trees better turn yellow and orange in the fall or branches will roll!
So happy to hear you will return, we will look forward to it.

We have stayed at Palmer House a few years in a row. Always a pleasant stay. Good places to eat near by. Plenty of places for my wife to shop while I fish The Battenkill River. Friendly staff, clean rooms & grounds. A good value in the center of everything. We will return .

It's right in town with outlet shops and food in walking distance. Love the indoor heated pool with complimentary water. There is also a hot tub and gym. The rooms are huge and have everything you need. Staff very friendly. Definitely coming back!
