Well another great stay @preston sands hotel. As always management and staff couldn't do enough for their guests, entertainment first class as always. Clayton, Sue and Brian always available to help with any queries ie directions, advice on the area etc. to quote a previous comment on here, this should no doubt be a three star hotel. Amazing views, nice flat walk to paignton, bus routes just around the corner, all in all everything close by.

This was our third visit this year and have already booked for next year.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms offer amazing views of the bay.

we spent a very pleasant long weekend at this hotel , we found the owners to be pleasant and polite , food was of a very good standard and couldn't fault it , there was a slight delay with breakfast on one morning but nothing major . room was a little dated but as we understand they are being decorated , the only drawback was a train track close by the back of the hotel but it wasn't that noisy to be fair, and didn't interrupt any sleep . would stay here again if we were going that way

Room Tip: try for a room at the front if you are not keen on trains being in close proximity

We have just spent three nights at the Preston Sands Hotel and I must say don't let the two stars put you off. In our opinion it is much more than a two star. We have stayed in three stars which were not half as good as this hotel.
We were lucky to have a sea view room over looking the bay with a view of Torquay, Paignton Pier and Brixham. The bar and dining room were artistically trimmed for Christmas and NOT done in a tacky way. The bar prices were reasonable and yes we did hear a couple of trains and also the rough sea , but that's living.
The meals were not too good but for what we paid we can't grumble. We will be going back.

We've just got back from a tinsel & turkey 4 day break at this very pleasant hotel. Clayton and his team run a very well organised, friendly hotel overlooking the bay with stunning views, nothing was too much trouble. Every day there was a little surprise for everyone staying there, the food was excellent served by Briony our smashing waitress in a very bright welcoming restaurant. The bar area was modern and clean with very reasonable bar prices, my husband and brother in law took advantage of the £2 house doubles every night!!! Brian the barman was so friendly, it felt like we'd known him for years at the end of our trip, even if he didnt call the right numbers at the bingo. We particularly enjoyed the 'boxing night' entertainment with 'mrs santa' Terry, and Clayton outshone himself by joining in so much, taking part and making sure everyone had a thoroughly good time. It makes such a difference when people go the extra mile, the other entertainment was also excellent on the other evenings.
If there was one thing I would suggest it would be a new staircase up to the first floor as they are very narrow steps and steep, although there is a lift to both floors, so no real problem. We are already planning to return again in the Spring. Cant wait....

Room Tip: All the front facing rooms have wonderful views of the bay

We have just returned from a Turkey Tinsel break at Preston Sands . 47 of us and a (guide) dog went by coach (long journey) from the local W.M.Club. We had a fantastic time. Staff were all attentive and welcoming. Entertainment at night was good, especially ? Diamond (not Neil). He was excellent !!
Our room was a family room on the 2nd floor (no.11). It was fabulous ,overlooking sea and Paignton pier, Brixham and Torquay in the distance. I spent every morning sitting by the window watching the sun rise. Room was very clean and spacious as was the bathroom.
Food was good with a varied menu and choice. Chef even prepared me a separate meal one day due to an allergy to one of the ingredients ,even though there were other choices. Waiting staff were friendly and helpful. Our waitress, Shannon, was a little treasure.
All the staff worked hard so many thanks to you all xxx

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view are brilliant . Some double rooms have a balcony.
