Lovely hotel, with beautiful gardens. Room was absolutely spotless, very spacious, and had everything we needed. 24 hour room service came in handy when we fancied a bottle of Chardonnay upon returning from eating out... Though this unfortunately meant we then missed breakfast. Hotel is well situated, and close by to the bars, restaurants and main sea front, which is... More

We have just returned from a week at the Palace - this time travelling as a family with 2 teenage girls. From the moment we arrived and saw our lovely adjoining garden-view rooms and the sun shining, we knew we were in for a great time. We loved spending sunny days by the outdoor pool, in-between rounds of golf and... More

We booked this hotel last week less than 24 hours before we were due to stay . We had been completely let down with a booking we have for The Imperial so switched to this hotel. We could only have a standard room on the first night as that was all was available, and then move to a garden view... More

We stayed for two nights in July. Staff could not have been any more friendly and helpful and were great with the kids. The hotel grounds are beautiful and the amenities are great. I found that the general decor especially in the rooms was tired and very much in need of an update. Rooms lack air conditioning and when we... More

We stayed for four nights at the Palace, our third stay in three years. The Palace is not on the sea front, instead it has a view of its own nine hole golf course, and beautiful gardens. The outdoor swimming pool is also on view. The rooms are well serviced, and looked after by the staff, but they need a... More

We stayed here for one night for a short break. Hotel is huge, loads to do and the gardens are beautifully kept. Our room was huge and looked over the gardens meaning we had a really nice view which was a good thing because there was not much else for us to do. The restaurant menu looked good but we... More

As we walked to our room we noticed a bizarre smell in the corridor which luckily disappeared by the time we reached our room. Our room was a good size but looked as though it hadn't been decorated since the 1970s. The ensuite was poorly cleaned and had a lacklustre shower with a rusting stool in the corner. The tiling...
