We came for 2 nights and Eddie and his team of staff could not do enough for us. We found the site online and took a gamble as the website does not sell the hotel as well as it could. We have had a lovely couple of days. We have now booked to come again at Easter. This maybe a... More

We arrived, having booked online, to have a rear facing room. The hotel owner who was on reception made it possible for us to have a sea view room and didn't charge any extra when he realised how disappointed I was. The hotel is a little dated but very comfortable, clean and cosy. The beds were very comfortable and clean.... More

I phoned the Preston Sands Hotel in January to ask whether they would be able to provide a buffet and bar for a funeral. Despite the hotel being closed I was told that they would open especially for our event. The room they provided had spectacular views over the beach and bay. The bar manager and waitresses were friendly and... More

A mixed stay for us as we were visiting relatives nearby between Christmas and New Year. The positives: we paid for the upgrade to the sea view room and it was definitely worth it. The view was lovely as the sun came up, and the room was very quiet. The bed was very comfortable, breakfast was good (although quite limited... More

I have to be on the road at 07-30 in the mornings but Eddie (the Manager) provides me with breakfast before I go (breakfast... More

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
