We have just returned from a 5 night stay with our 3 children aged 8, 7 and 4. It was our 2nd stay at Sands and we stayed in a Family Suite on the 2nd Floor. The weather wasn't too good but it didn't ruin our stay at all. The hotel's facilities are excellent and even though the hotel was... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly, approachable and helpful staff and this was the case throughout our stay. Great activities and facilities for the kids (aged 9 and 1). The overall atmosphere of the hotel was relaxed and all areas were well maintained. Housekeeping was excellent - room serviced daily. Can't wait to return next year!

We did a short break in a family suite - 2 adults, 2 children under 7. Staff are lovely, everyone was very helpful & friendly. Facilities are great, plenty for the children to do inside and outside the hotel with play areas, clubs, and swimming pool (which is a nice temperature) and Spa & child-free indoor pool time for adults....

Once again we enjoyed an excellent family holiday at Easter. Our party consisted of two OAP's, four adults and four children (ages 5, 3, 2 and almost 2) and we booked three adjacent pool view suites. There was a problem when we first arrived because the previous occupant of the middle suite had been smoking in the room with the... More

We holidayed at the Sands at the beginning of June and I can honestly say it was the best holiday we've had so far with the children. From our extremely warm reception on arrival, to the superb service we had from all the staff throughout our stay, I honestly couldn’t have asked for better. I have to say that with... More

I was a little nervous that it might be a tad cheesy but needn't have worried - this is a great place to stay whatever the weather. The hotel itself is clean, the staff are excellent and there is ample entertainment for kids and adults alike. There is way too much to do both here and in the wider area... More

This is the second year we have been to Sands and yet again it was fantastic for us. We have two children, (4 and 7) and they were happy and entertained with everything that was on offer and so therefore we were relaxed and happy parents. The children's clubs during the day were very good, both of mine enjoyed them... More

On balance I think this is a good hotel The good Lots of stuff for the kids to do: pools, play areas, bouncy castles etc. Staff are generally great. Service in the restaurant and bar good. Room and furnishings OK. The middle ground Food wasn't bad - but quite formulaic. Fantastic fish and chips though! The bad Not the greatest... More

I wasnt happy one night when the receptionist told me that the restaurant was full when i asked her if i can have dinner, 15 minutes later she... More
