“Brilliant stay”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

From the moment we arrived for our 2nd stay the staff were friendly and helpful, our children were attended to by staff to make check-in easy after a long journey. Brilliant stay and we will return in the near future.

Myself and my Husband stayed here for five nights for our first wedding anniversary celebrations and we had a superb stay. We were greeted by a very friendly gentleman on Reception who gave us a very warm welcome and was very helpful and informative. We were given room 27, which is a well appointed room with a lovely sea view. The room was very clean, air conditioned and of a very large size with all mod cons. We found the hotel to be in a great location for exploring the surrounding areas, but still peaceful and quiet and away from the hustle and bustle. Parking was not an issue at all for us and we found a parking space immediately. The hotel has good transport links and buses are very frequent from outside the hotel grounds. All staff we encountered during our stay were very friendly and it was nice to be greeted by a friendly 'Good Morning' everyday. It was a lovely touch to find that on the day of our anniversary, we came back to our room to find a card had been left for us from the staff, a nice thought. We would highly recommend this hotel and we would definitely stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: Room 27 has lovely sea views and is of a very large size.

There is nothing I can fault about the short break that we have just had at goodringtons premier inn. The location is the best I imagine of any premier inns in the country. We had a family room that was very clean and spacious with an outstanding view of the bay. The staff were all very friendly too. Overall, we look forward to returning again very soon.

Stayed here for 3 nights from the day before May bank holiday. This was the second time my wife and I had been here, this time her parents came with us. Our room was fine, no problems, good sleep quality. However my wife's parents were no so lucky with their room on the first night. This was due to air-conditioning units just outside their window which kept them awake most of the night. They complained the next morning and were given a different room and a refund for the first night. The location of the hotel is faultless. A lovely setting right on the sea front in Goodrington, which is quieter than Paignton itself. Not much else around the hotel. There are some shops about 10 minutes walk away, or further in the other direction into Paignton.

Room Tip: Avoid room 23. This is 1 of 2 rooms they only use when fully booked.

Great location being right on the beach front and next to the park. Ideally suited for families and couples of all ages, level walk to beach, park, boating lake, etc. Superb room, spacious and spotlessly clean with dual aspect windows overlooking the beach front and also the park - couldn't have chosen better! Staff really helpful, we'd definitely stay here again.

You know exactly what you are getting with Premier Inn but this one exceeds most because of its location right by the beach. Huge room, great views, usual great breakfast. Can't fault it. Only wish they would do family rooms for families with 3 children.

not too good very.hard to sleep at night with motorbikes using the car park as a racetrack until early hours did complain but nothing happened, but to be honest did not expect a young girl on her own to confront the bikers at midnight and did not want her too but a call to the police to have a word would not been an unreasonable thing to expect, it was not cheap and to be honest could have used anyone one of a dozen hotels in the local area and paid less and slept better will not use again
