This is a top class hotel.
When wondering in advance what this hotel might be like, I have to admit to having some decidedly conscious bias, based on my previous perception of Peterhead being a non-touristy, slightly run down fishing town. Consequently, re the hotel, wasn’t expecting too much.
How wrong I was! The Palace is a modern and very smart hotel, and the furnishings and decor throughout are tasteful and top class. Reception was welcoming and efficient and when you look at the style and quality of the smart public area, there is no doubt that this hotel would fit in perfectly in a major city centre.
We booked an Executive room and it was absolutely top drawer. The quality of decor and furnishings was as fine as in the public areas and the room was a very good size with a huge bed, comfortable settee, coffee table, desk and chair. There was also a large television, safe, tea making facilities and all the other things you would expect in a quality hotel room.
Breakfast was served in a very attractive restaurant and, in addition to a splendid selection of hot and cold food on the buffet, you could order freshly cooked items such as omelettes, poached eggs or excellent smoked haddock. Service was charming, but that has been a constant theme throughout our visit.
This is a top class hotel and I highly recommend it.
