“Beware room 8!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

The Inn’s location cannot be bettered and is probably one of the most attractive Premier Inns I have stayed in. It’s right on the seafront and directly opposite a lovely water park. As ever the staff are excellent and the inn has a good Brewers Fayre restaurant attached to it.
I was here for 3 nights on business during probably the coldest week of the year and my room was cosy and warm although the warm air heating was rather noisy and during the night rather stifling as the thermostat refused to stay below 20c no matter how much I fiddled with it! Also there was no heating in the bathroom.
The biggest problem was the position of my room (room 8) being next to the laundry. All night long was a constant humming, whirring and intermittent chugging of washing machines and tumble driers, hardly condusive to the “Good night’s sleep” promised by Premier Inns. All Premier Inn rooms are basically the same, and it was very clean as usual but due to noise and the heating issue not the most comfortable

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 8 &9!

Stayed for one night, sea view, easy parking (free in winter). Hotel is right on the beach. Apart from the adjacent eatery all other places are a few minutes drive, or a walk into town. Hotel very clean, large rooms and good bathroom

It was a pleasure to stay here in a location that meant we didn't use our car for the whole weekend. A great view of the seafront from our 1st floor room (most rooms seem to have sea views), welcoming staff and good facilities (restaurant and bar). The room was a really good size with a really comfortable bed. Breakfast was good and service friendly. We had a very undemanding relaxing walking weekend and will definitely be back.

Room Tip: First floor rooms probably have the best sea views.

This is an amazing location for a Premier Inn, right on the seafront. We stayed in Room 12 which overlooked the beach. The room, well everywhere, was spotless. The staff were really helpful and pleasant. Car parking was easy. The weather was appauling but the accommodation had an internal link to the restaurant so we didn't have to get wet to get breakfast. The breakfast was cooked to order and loads of choice. Great place, will go again.

Room Tip: Room 12 has a sea view and is in the newer part.

Stayed one night - 22nd. December - for £29, having stayed here 18 months ago. Free car parking plentiful. Good location for walking the beach and bay (shame about the rain) Quite a long walk (20-30) minutes into Paignton town but excellent Brewers Fayre Innattached for meals if you prefer.

Excellent large room (30) on 2nd floor with great sea view. Probably the best shower I've had anywhere in the world!!

Unfortunately heating control seemed to be faulty so it was a little cooler than we would have liked. Very helpful receptioist fetched us a plug in heater which did the trick.

Would certainly go back again.
