Beautiful suite, very clean and comfortable with everything we could need! The staff are so friendly and efficient and the breakfasts super. The gardens, pool and parking area are perfect....our only suggestion would be to install automatic gates so as not to wait at the gate at night for someone to open them. We will continue to make this our... More

Thank you for your review, we are glad you like Palm House. The Entrance Gates are not electric or self opening as we are very security conscious and we have seen how easy it is for people to slip into a property before automatic gates close. This is why we employ security personnel 24/7 to open and close the entrance... More

We travelled to CT for a school sporting trip. The location was excellent. Staff were very accommodating, helpful and friendly. Facilities slightly shabby but more than adequate for our needs. We had a downstairs room next to the reception and noise did travel from reception and bar area. Very good value for money.

Generally good but feel it has gone down a bit since our last visit in 2009. The whole place is looking a little tired and is need of some maintenance. The mosquitoes were bad in our room. We felt the staff were disinterested in doing any work - for example we had to go looking for the waitress for breakfast,... More

“As a family we stayed in one of the cottages. It was great. With three young children I am always conscious of noise - either the noise we make or the noise of young revelers coming in late. We could be as noisy as we needed knowing that we were not disturbing anybody nor were we disturbed by anybody else.”
