“weekend break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

my wife and i had a great 2 day stay at preston sands , the staff very very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfertable with an amazing view from our balcony and the food was excellant. my only negative was that the rooms could do with a little updating and the bed was very creaky. i would not hesitate to return to this hotel as the welcoming atmosphere was great.

We stayed at the Preston Sands Hotel Painton with a group and had a fabulous time. Eddie the manager and staff made us very welcome.
The food, entertainment and hospitality were excellent. The rooms were nice with all you need for your holiday.
The hotel is what it says, 20 metres from the beach.
The only fault was that we did not have long enough there

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel look straight onto the beach

Had a lovely Easter break here. Eddy the manager is so friendly and welcoming we knew we would like it as soon as we arrived. We had a premium room with a balcony and a lovely view over Torbay. We only ate breakfast there but it was fine and freshly cooked.

The hotel is in need of some TLC but Eddy has only been there a few weeks and seems to have everything under control.

No hair dryers in the rooms, but Im pretty sure Eddy would sort one for anyone who needs one.

Would not hesitate in returning again in the furture.

I stayed here over the week-end on my own and enjoyed it very much. The owner, Eddy was so friendly and helpful, he carried my bags to the room for me The girls in the Restaurant were very efficient too. I was only B&B, but the breakfast was very nice. The entertainment was quite good considering they are not into the full season yet. I had a single room which looked out over the bay, what a lovely added surprise that was. Just about a 5-10 minute walk from the Centre, so far enough away from the bars and noise.
I will visit this Hotel again!

just returned from Preston Sands,had a great time.
Manager & all staff very friendly & helpful.
Rooms a little tired but lovely clean white linen & towels.
Food simple but very good as was entertainment.
Hotel at quieter end of seafront ,easy walk to town & bus stops if needed.
Don't take any notice of 2 star rating as should be more.

Room Tip: Room 30 top floor close to lift
