I stayed here with my wife and nine year old son for five nights in May/June 2010. The hotel enjoys an excellent location by Torquay seafront, with a footbridge conveniently located for access to the beach.
From the moment we checked in, we were very impressed with the friendly and efficient service provided by all the staff. On entering our room we found that our son's sofa bed had not been made up, but when we contacted Reception, this was rectified immediately.
Our family room was located just over the entrance to the hotel, where we occasionally heard people hanging around for a smoke and a chat at night after they left the bar, but this was nothing which particularly disturbed us or warranted a complaint.
We took breakfast daily in the adjoining Beefeater restaurant where the service was excellent and the generous “eat as much as you like” buffet provided everything we needed and more. Breakfast was served from 8-10 Saturday to Monday and 7-9:30 the rest of the week, and we found the service just as good regardless of whether we arrived towards the beginning or the end of that window.
Apart from breakfast, we didn't use the Beefeater, but we did take an evening meal and a lunch in the hotel bar, where we were more than happy with the quality and service provided. We visited at what must be one of the busiest times of year, but did not have to wait more than twenty minutes for our food to be served.
Car parking was easy. On arrival, you are issued with a voucher to display in your windscreen which entitles you to free parking for the duration of your stay, and we always found plenty of space available during the six days we were there.
We intend to return to the Torbay area more frequently in the future, and will certainly consider booking the Premier Inn again.
