Came here to stay for just one night but must say the welcome we had was very good. All the staff were friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for us. The room was ample, we had a balcony room with sea view which was very nice. Breakfast was quite tasty. The only thing I will say wasn't quite up to... More

We travelled here on the 23rd December for what was hopefully a restful Christmas break, after nearly 8 hours travelling we arrived too late for our mince pies and coffee on arrival with barely enough time to freshen up for the evening meal, which was average to be generous. Although we were promised our mince pies and coffee at a... More

There are lots of mixed reviews on this hotel, as I was staying only one night this didn't really bother me. I booked a single en-suite room. The room was OK. Clean and tidy with a comfortable bed. The shower room and toilet was tiny and is in need of total renovation. The worst part of my stay was the... More

Have just returned from a Tinsel and Turkey weekend at the Preston Sands and thoroughly enjoyed it. Food good, entertainment good, Eddie and his staff very helpful, Rooms a Bit dated but clean, excellent position with wonderful views across Torbay, Free parking, bus stop close with good service. We are returning for Christmas.

Turkey and Tinsel is not the sort of holiday we choose and if this is a taste of how they are organised then we could well apply again. The Preston Sands hotel were perfect hosts with the best staff we have experienced. It can boast a superb team under the guidance of Eddie the manager and Linda the kingpin in... More
