I have just returned home from a perfect break at the Sands hotel. The proprietor's, Brian, Lorraine and their son Jonathan, could not make me feel more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel was spotless, the breakfast's were delicious and plentiful. I know why people return every year, sometimes more than twice. I shall certainly be...

My friends pop down to see my family in Paignton a few times each year and they stay at The Sands hotel each and every time. Why? It's quite simply because it is the personal service, cleanliness and quality of this hotel. Brian, Lorraine, there son Jonathan are so helpful and friendly that from the minute you arrive you are...

Breakfast was cooked by Lorraine and was superior in quality and utterly delicious. The hotel has a well stocked bar which is reasonably priced and Brian is always available to serve you your...

We have been staying at The Sands with Brian, Lorraine and Jonathan for well over 12 years. Everytime we have been their guests we have felt more than welcome and have become friends too over the years. No-one can fault their commitment to giving you an enjoyable holiday experience. Very clean accommodation, hearty breakfast and good company in the evenings... More

The Sands is well located at the end of the Esplanade looking out over the bay but within walking distance of the bus and train stations so no need to use the car until we left. This B&B is bright, airy and spacious with the reception,... More

Stayed for 8 nights in single room, everything lovely, from being greeted at the door by Brian, who without hesitation, got my case out the boot. Shown my room, which was large for a single. The location was ideal, hardly used the car. The whole place was clean and light. Breakfast delicious. And to top it off, in the evenings,... More
