Just returned from a weekend break at the Preston Sands Hotel. Enjoyed our stay at the Preston Sands. With Friendly staff, very good entertainment, along with good food and a nice Sea view room made this a very nice weekend stay.

Recently stayed at Preston Sands Hotel. The hotel is rated as a two star, building wise it may be but Eddie and his staff are five star. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was very good the entertainment was inspired. We actually booked with a tour company but did not expect the high level of friendly service we received.... More

I don't normally write reviews but felt that my recent stay at the Preston Sands Hotel was so good that I just had to give credit to all the hotel staff particularly Brian (barman) and Eddie (manager). Having read previous reviews I was a bit concerned of what my stay would be like. I needn't have worried because my initial... More

Had two perfect days at the hotel. Located room 5, sea view with balcony - perfect. The staff were friendly but professional. We enjoyed the meals and the entertainment on both evenings was first class. WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR.

Just had a week end at the Preston Sands with friends and had a lovely time. The hotel was clean, food was good entertainment good and the staff were wonderful. We had an emergency on the Sat night which was handled very professionally by The Manager and the bar man. Many thanks.

Thank you for your comments, we do appreciate that it would be handy to have 2 keys for each room, and although we do have spare keys for every room we prefer not to give both out. However this is something we will look into and to maybe do in the future. I appreciate you saying that the resorts attractions... More
