The Sands Hotel was very warm and cosy, close to bus routes, close to the prom and gardens. Food and table service quality of a high standard by very helpful staff. The coach journey was comfortable with two adequate stops, the driver was helpful and friendly and loaded the bags on board.

A great time at the Sands recently at what was our first T&T. (Nov 6-10). Staff were very friendly and efficient in all departments...even Santa made an appearance..'thank you' for the gifts! We thought the hotel was tastefully decorated and the break was a good start to the festive season. The food was of course, up to its usual high... More

Everyone in the group was very happy with the food, service and their rooms although... More

great time was had in spite of the weather, excellent entertainment every night. Good value meals the only drawback was the beer at the bar. I would like to have tried some local brews, but that's just me.

Nice holiday overall with good food and entertainment. Only problem was there was a private coach party who seemed to take over everything and didn't mix with other people. Window in our room kept blowing open on its own and the room was cold.
