“Great location by the sea”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

You can't get nearer to the sea than this and stay dry!
Premier Inn prices per room are a bit of a lottery but bargains are available if you're lucky.
Comfy quiet hotel. Brewers Fayre restaurant busy with families and can be noisy. Not the best Brewers Fayre I have used re quality of food but OK

This hotel as usual with Premier Inns was clean and tidy. The guy on reception was really helpful and staff friendly. Our room was in the new part over looking the sea. You could get no better views than that. The food in the afternoon at the Brewers Fayre could have been better but breakfast once again was great with lots of options and plenty of coffee. It is within easy walking distance to the town and all attractions.We would definitely go back to this hotel.

Staff / rooms / all tip top. Only problem was the noise level in the restaurant on our first night.& we were given a poor table likely this was as we we were a couple & could be put in a corner without taking up too much room ! We rectified this by dining out the following evening..

excellent hotel friendly staff very good facilities recommend to anyone, you don't need to use your car, Its next to Goodrington sands, the water splash ride, the steam trains to Dartmouth, and only a short walk into Paignton, saves on the high cost of all day parking in the towns.

Lovely hotel, wonderful helpful staff here. We had room 9 a family room it was lovely as we have stayed in a similar chains where the think kids deserve to be stuck on the floor !! , but luckily the same can't be said for Premier inn( 2 lovely single beds provide). Thee room looked out onto the green & lake in one direction and the sea in the other. Couldn't fault the view, it was not noisy outside and certainly didn't hear talking or footsteps from our room the hotel was very quiet. The bathroom was spotless, the room was spotless. We had breakfast every day in the Brewers Fayre next door, this was good , a nice choice and we paid £32 for 2 adult breakfast on Saturday and Sunday(the kids got free breakfast). We felt it was worth the money as we were full and didn't eat again till 4/5pm. However on the day of arrival we didn't want to travel and the Brewers Fayre is the only place to eat at the beach apart from a small kiosk(I'd stop somewhere before arrival in future). An evening meal for 4 with a drink and desert came to £64( and the next day in Paignton we paid £34 for a similar amount of food in a local café). The hotel though was a fab experience , can't be faulted and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: 9 was fab, could see the sea, the lake and green Plenty of room for 4 of us.

Just got back from 2 nights at this hotel, and I must say we had a great time. the hotel is very clean and well presented, the staff are excellent and the Brewers fayre pub is great ! The location is spot on we had a sea view which although was a bit cloudy was still nice. Parking is a bit of a bind though we managed eventually, We will come back later this year.... thanks

Room Tip: ask for a sea view !!!!!

The hotel staff were friendly and the room was as expected; and clean, apart from a few crumbs on the settee. Furnishings are of a decent standard, with comfy bed, air conditioning and good shower - the standard Premier Inn fare.
However we ate at the adjoining pub and this left a lot to be desired. This wasn't the height of summer, but the pub was very busy and service was a bit slow. The food is cheap and unfortunately you reap the reward for this; my mixed grill especially reflected this. Most of it was okay, but the piece of steak was as tough as the proverbial old boots and I just couldn't eat it.
Breakfast the next morning was even more disappointing. Unlike some Premier Inns, which have a buffet style breakfast, here you have to order the cooked food and it took the best part of an hour to turn up - and the bacon and sausage were dry and unappetising. The breakfast area wasn't busy, so this was all very disappointing.
My advice; stay at the hotel but find somewhere else to eat.
One last thing - the hotel uses a pay and display car park, which is free for guests, but it was busy and the spaces are quite tight. I'm sure a lot of guests end up with door dents etc.
