Arrived home a few days ago from a relaxing stay at the Premier Inn, Torquay.
The booking was made via the Premier Inn website, and check-in was very simple. We received the room key, in the form of a card, within a few minutes.
Our room was in the new block which is separate from the main hotel building and reception, although access can be made via a corridor that leads off from reception. The room was as expected from a Premier Inn, very clean and tidy. The king size bed was very comfortable, and a choice of either hard or soft pillows were provided for your comfort. Each room also contains black out curtains which puts the room into near darkness at night. The added convenience of overheat heating was also welcome, and this could be controlled by a simple panel near the bed. The room could get quite warm which was needed during December when we visited.
The room also contained a TV with Freeview, kettle with a choice of tea or coffee, hairdryer, settee, and a large desk. I was surprised to see that, apart from a small wardrobe and one drawer, there was a lack of other drawers for clothes, and the majority of our clothes had to be folded and stored on a few various shelves in the wardrobe unit. This wasn’t too much of a problem though, as we were only there for a few nights.
The bathroom was of a reasonable size, and there were plenty of towels provided. There was also foaming hand wash and shower gel/shampoo provided in the form of dispensers next to the sink and bath. There was also a shower provided over the bath, and a tap could be turned either for running a bath or for the shower. The shower head couldn’t be repositioned, but I soon got used to this, and it wasn’t a problem.
Breakfast in the morning was taken in the Beefeater restaurant connected to the hotel, so you didn’t need to walk outside to get to this. There was always a warm welcome when we arrived and were shown to our table. The breakfast was a buffet style, and depending on the price you paid, you could have an endless supply of tea, coffee, fruit juice, toast, crumpets, croissants, muffins, fresh fruit, yoghurts, etc. For a couple of pounds extra, you could also have food from the hot buffet, which included sausages, bacon, fried or scrambled eggs, baked beans, grilled tomatoes, hash browns and others. Apart from being slightly expensive, £8.25 each per day for the Premier breakfast, the food was of a very high standard and was unlimited.
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at the Premier Inn, and nothing seemed too much trouble for any of the staff, both in the hotel and the restaurant, and they were all very attentive. We will definitely return to this hotel, as it is within easy reach of the town centre and harbour, the beach and the railway station, which can be reached in a 5-10 minute walk. This was the first time that we have stayed at this particular hotel, but it won’t be our last. Highly recommended!
