“Adequate Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

We attended this hotel to meet with family who were staying there and to enjoy an evening meal in the restaurant. Prior to our meal we had drinks in the small bar, which is located on the lower level, in the ballroom. This bar served basic drinks, but there were draught beers and one draught cider available. On this particular evening there was a country and western singer, who did his best to entertain a mainly elderly audience who were there on a coach trip. We then attended the restaurant, located at the next lower level. We immediately noted that this facility was decorated in green pastel shades, and a number of our party immediately exclaimed "Butlins", a reaction from the decor and the way in which the tables were arranged. The service was good, but the food was over-cooked and very plain. In fact the vegetables were mush. Our relatives who were staying at the hotel advised that the rooms were "basic but adequate". We won't ever return there again.

Once again we had a fantastic weekend break at Palm Court. The staff are more of a family than staff, and they are willing to do anything to ensure you enjoy your stay. I am hard to please in the hotel system for food as I have allergy's to Meat,Fish and many Herbs and Spices due to having Polio and Scarlet Fever within a month of each other in my infancy. But the chefs at Palm Court went out of there way to ensure I had plenty of food. The room was clean and spacious and the entertainment was very good. We highly recommend Palm Court for any one including people with difficulties as well. You will be treat equally, and there is always help around. We was in a coach party and it is hard to please everyone but there was no complaints from anyone about anything. God Bless You

Having stayed in quite a few hotels around the world this one was very good value for money in comparison! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were a little dated, but for a two star hotel I think they were more than adequate and the food was lovely - I am a vegetarian which has caused many problems at different hotels in the past, however I was very well catered for here. Ilfracombe itself is a stellar location for a weekend away and overall I was very pleased with the accommodation and location. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants good value for money and a relaxing break.

We visited the Palm Court Hotel last week on a coach tour from North Wales, we offen go on these tours and I have to say what a great time we had. Nice big room very clean and comfortable. The best thing was the food Iam a veggie and where you normally have just one veggie choice I was offered a special menu where there was at least 8 choices. Thank you Palm Court for looking after me so well. The staff were great and very friendly and kind. We also enjoyed the entertainment I nearly won the Quizz, we also had a great singer and a fella who playe the organ. All in all a great holiday

Room Tip: Nice level walk to the Harbour and Seafront

Weather wet and blustery outside, but the conservatory was light and airy, perfect place to read the papers after breakfast. Breakfast was plentiful, hot and as self service, I got just what I wanted. Perfect start to the day.

Room was pleasant and comfortable, after all the walking, a comfortable bed was perfect.

Everything was clean, staff lovely, nothing was too much trouble.

The evening meal was well cooked, cheerily served, the menu was varied and the dining room bright and very hospitable. The entertainment each evening was just that, very entertaining - the high light was the bingo and quiz night - a real icebreaker with the guests!

Taking my Mother in Law on her first holiday after losing her husband was quite a stressful time, but the Palm Court and its staff made me determined to repeat the experience with them next year.

Many thanks all of you.
