Hello, from what I know the Palace and garden doesn't have a website. So an option would be to visit Balchik and get all the details on site

It is about 15 km far (about 20 minutes by car) from your hotel. You can look at google.maps to see the routes. In summer, it is opened daily from 8:00 till 20:00.
