It’s been half term for us this week and whilst my eldest was away with her dad, the rest of us popped down for the coast for a night away. I think there’s something really refreshing about changing routine every so often. The good thing about hotel chains like Premier Inn’s is when you’ve stayed in one you often know what you’re getting. They are all over the country and pretty reliable hotels. We paid £133 for a one night stay in Weymouth Seafront during May half term 2019 which is fairly expensive for one night but we were able to check in earlier at 1.30pm and check out is at 12noon so you do have the room for quite a while.
Weymouth Seafront Premier Inn is situated next to the Sealife Park and is very close to the beach. There is a sealife express landtrain which can take you down to the sandy part of the beach and the town centre which runs during the day every hour until the late afternoon. It conincides with the Seaflife park opening times and is a nice way to cruise along the seafront. There is a bus stop just outside too if you don’t fancy the 25 minute walk into town. We walked both down into the town centre along the coast and then back up again. There are plenty of benches and half the beach is sand so it’s a very nice walk.
The Premier Inn Weymouth Seafront has a Brewers Fare close by for breakfast or an evening meal. There is also a few other attractions at that side of Weymouth so it’s a good base if you want to go to Sand World, Sealife Park, GoKarting or Minature Golf. My highlight was the fact that Uber Eats works in Weymouth and we were able to get a McDonalds delivered to the hotel later in the evening! Felix got tired so he was in bed by 6.30pm but of course that meant come 9pm Adam and I were hungry. There isn’t any room service and some Premier Inn’s have partnered with Just Eat to offer a delivery service. However, usually you can just wait in reception or outside the hotel to meet the delivery driver which is what Adam did.
We stayed in a family room at the Premier Inn Weymouth Seafront hotel which was nice and spacious. Our bathroom had a shower over the bath and included shower gel and soap. Frustratingly the air con didn’t work very well but Adam was able to borrow a fan from the front desk for the night. That helped make our sleep much more comfortable. A travel cot was set up and provided for Felix too so we didn’t need to bring a sleeping space for him and there was also a sofa bed made up too. It’s great to know that if Evie had been with us we would all have had somewhere to sleep that was comfortable.
We had a nice night away in Weymouth and Felix had plenty of space to move around which he needed after the car journey and then the walk to and from the town centre. Adam hadn’t been to Weymouth before either or at least can’t remember so he enjoyed it. It’s one of my favourite seaside towns to visit and having a quick half term break gave us something to look forward to. We decided against breakfast and instead got to have another stretch of sleep when Felix went down for his morning nap. Checking out was nice and simple too.
