“Excellent-AGAIN”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Back from a weekend at The Sands in Paignton, as always-an excellent stay.
Super place-friendly, well located with great views and right by the sea and
the town/high street.
Every aspect is top notch-friendly welcome, cleanliness, the food and having
a relaxing drink in the bar on an evening.
Thanks for a peaceful and relaxing weekend break.
Home from home-it really is.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are really nice

My husband and I decided to flee our family home (leaving our teenage kids behind) to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We asked for a room with a view and that is certainly what we got, looking out across the bay each morning, was just wonderful and so relaxing. Our ensuite room was extremely spacious, well decorated, lots of wardrobe and storage space, a huge comfortable bed with crisp clean linen. Tea & Coffee making facilities with biscuits too. Complimentary toiletries. Breakfasts just delicious! Everything was just perfect for us, the beach is right across the road, town centre and local attractions all close by.

Elaine, Brian and Johnathan are superb hosts, they pay so much attention to detail, detail missed by many others.......we had an absolutely fantastic experience at The Sands, we will most definitely be back and hopefully soon.

So if you are planning a trip to Paignton, make sure you book your accomodation at The Sands!

Just had three brilliant days at The Sands Hotel. Brian, Lorraine and Jonathan (not forgetting Scooby) made us feel very welcome. We had a lovely sea view room overlooking Paignton and all the way to Torquay. Breakfasts were lovely, hotel room clean and bed very comfortable. The evenings spent in the bar were great fun and we met some lovely friends. Looking forward to going back hopefully in September, room permitting.

This was our 7th visit to the Hotel and I am pleased to say that once again the standard was brilliant. Brian managed to find us a room with a sea view at short notice for our 5 night stay.
Nothing is too much trouble for them and it was like being at home, so much so that I fell asleep in the wonderful reclining seat in the bar!. Lorraine's breakfast is legendry and is always fresh and tasty. The hotel is 30 seconds from the beach and once there you can leave your car and walk to all the sights. If you want to go further a field you can catch a bus or train all at reasonable prices.
We would highly recommend staying here and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a sea view.

Four generations of my family stayed for a week at The Sands Hotel, and what a lovely stay we all had!
It really is a home from home, the breakfasts are top notch and there's no problems getting to sleep as the beds are ultra comfy. The sea is literally a stones throw away from the front door and everywhere else can be reached in minutes.
Brian, Lorraine and Jonathan (and Scooby) ensure your stay is top notch, you couldn't ask for better hosts.
Looking forward to visiting them all again soon!

My husband, daughter and I have just returned from a lovely 4 day break at The Sands in Paignton.

Both Brian and Lorraine were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel was spotlessly clean, in an ideal location a stone's throw away from the beach. There was a good choice for breakfast and the cooked breakfast was brilliant.

When we come to Paignton again we will definitely be returning to the sands hotel.
