Paul Smith, Acquisitions Manager for the South West at Premier Inn, said, ďSecuring unanimous planning consent for the 120- bedroom Premier Inn on Montpellier Road demonstrates the quality of the new hotel and the long-term benefits we will bring. More and more Premier Inn customers are staying with us for leisure breaks and staycations in Devon and Cornwall and our desire for a second Premier Inn hotel in Torquay reflects strong demand for Premier Inn bedrooms in the town year-round. We are confident the hotel will be very popular with our guests when the doors open.Ē

The hotel will be Premier Innís second hotel in Torquay, adding to the seafront hotel on Shedden Hill Road. In the wider Torbay area Whitbread also operates two Premier Inn hotels in Paignton (Paignton Seafront and Paignton South) and an 84-bedroom Premier Inn in Newton Abbot.

The new hotel is expected to create approximately 30 new year-round jobs.
