Stayed at the Premier Inn Goodrington for 5 nights with our 2 year old and loved it. Excellent location on the beach.
Firstly the room. We had a family room no 19. A king size bed and a single. Big enough for the 3 us with room to spare and a great view of the beach. All the usual furnishings you would expect from a premier inn. I did call before asking for a sea view. Worth doing as it really is a great view of the bay.
Restaurant/Bar is a Brewers Fayre attached to the hotel. We ate there for breakfast and evening meals. We had a variety of meals and all excellent and fairly priced. Worth pre booking your table for evening meals as it does get busy around peak times. You can also request specific tables. You order and pay for food at the bar.
Area. Goodrington is basically the beach with a nice park with the Premier Inn in the middle. The left hand beach is mainly used by dog walkers whilst the bigger right hand beach dogs are not allowed. no issues with dog noise for us. Both beaches nice and clean.There is a small tea/snack bar at each end of the beach and another in the park. There is also a snack/pizza place at the waterpark. These can shut early though on quiet days so don't rely upon them being open. You also have the train station for the steam railway. If you walk to the right hand end of the beach under the train track and up the road there are a couple of takeaways and a chippy. Recommend the chippy (frying Scotsman) excellent chips. About 15 min slow walk from hotel.
You can easily walk into Paignton. Litterally come out of the hotel turn right and keep walking. About 15 mins walk into town centre with shops, eating places etc. about another 10 mins walk through the pedestrianised part to the sea front. Nice easy flat walk even with a pushchair.
Car Parking is free for premier inn customers but you have to get a permit from reception. It is also a pay and display car park. This was my only niggle as I can imagine in summer months it being difficult to get a space. Premier Inn should really reserve spaces for people spending money staying with them. There are only 6 spaces specifically reserved. The rest are first come basis.
Staff. They really make the place. The girls on reception were always cheerful and helpful. The staff in the restaurant were also good. I have stayed in many hotels and work in a customer based job so I know how important good staff are. Well done to all here as they really make you feel welcome. We will be returning.
