We booked a family room, for us and 2 young kids. ( The room was on the first floor and there is no lift ). The extra beds were a sofa bed and a rollaway style bed, and were absolutely fine. We took our own cot side for the youngest child. The room was a good size, with plenty of space for the tonnes of bags you need with kids......The bathroom was fine, big enough with a shower over the bath. The staff were nice and friendly, all over the hotel was clean, and we had no problems with anything; your typical Premier Inn experience.
On the downside, there was no fridge in the room - which when you have have young kids it would have been great to store a bit of milk (or wine!). The other thing that was missing was the WiFi - you have 30 mins free each day, or pay £3 per day. Surely they could just do free wifi and save all the faffing around?!
The Brewers Fayre restaurant / pub next door is where breakfast is served, and avoid peak times if you can. Same for dinner; we ate dinner there the night we arrived but went elsewhere for the rest of our stay. It was like a circus.
The location is perfect - right on the beach, 1 minute to walk to the steam train station, a park right next to the hotel, close to the zoo and much quiter in Goodrington Sands than in the heart of Torquay. The beach is popular with dog walkers (in case your kids are scared of dogs) but clean.
It all depends on what you're looking for, but we were very happy with a friendly, clean hotel with good size room at a good rate, in a quite and convenient location.
