We have just returned from a Turkey Tinsel break at Preston Sands . 47 of us and a (guide) dog went by coach (long journey) from the local W.M.Club. We had a fantastic time. Staff were all attentive and welcoming. Entertainment at night was good, especially ? Diamond (not Neil). He was excellent !!
Our room was a family room on the 2nd floor (no.11). It was fabulous ,overlooking sea and Paignton pier, Brixham and Torquay in the distance. I spent every morning sitting by the window watching the sun rise. Room was very clean and spacious as was the bathroom.
Food was good with a varied menu and choice. Chef even prepared me a separate meal one day due to an allergy to one of the ingredients ,even though there were other choices. Waiting staff were friendly and helpful. Our waitress, Shannon, was a little treasure.
All the staff worked hard so many thanks to you all xxx

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view are brilliant . Some double rooms have a balcony.

Just returned from a 2 day coach break with 45 family and friends to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary, well what can i say we had a fantastic time no complaints about this hotel at all, the staff including the manager Brian standing in for Clayton is a lovely man who could not do enough for us, Guy (thats his name) behind the bar worked his socks off too, all the restaurant staff were really lovely too and the food was fabulous and plentiful, the rooms are really clean and the views from the front of the hotel are amazing. We will definately be returning to this hotel, a big thank you to Emma and Clayton for helping us to organize this very memorable trip.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are amazing.

Terrific meals. Staff really attentive and quick. Smiling and helpful.
Management friendly and cheerful. We had a really happy stay.
Railway outside window didn't worry us at all. Hardly aware of the trains after the first one.
Do like we do and get some earplugs if you don't like creaking floorboards or noise of any kind.
We all slept like logs.

Thanks everyone at the Preston x

Room Tip: Ask for seaview rooms; but not really necessary if going out and about as onlty for sleeping

A weekend coach trip with a stay at Preston sands and it was very enjoyable. We were lucky to have a sea view room with a balcony so with the lovely weather we had this was fantastic. All staff were friendly and helpful and some of them waved us off when our coach left. Food was fine and a varied choice to select from. Our room was comfortable, clean and cosy, en suite room and if we did have a problem we thought the bathroom needed a new loo as flushing and filling of cistern was a bit of a problem. We were not disturbed by any noise from other rooms and the evening music in the bar finished at a reasonable time. It was a pleasure being able to walk out of the hotel and you were by the sea. Although our coach suffered a few problems this did not spoil a lovely weekend. This hotel is a 2 star, so do not understand the moans about it, Preston Sands is good value for money.

Room Tip: Front rooms having amazing views over the bay and some have balconies.

hi folks, With trepidation my wife and i decided to book a Friday to Monday coach trip to Preston sands Hotel. Our first coach tour . we did have a wee bit of trouble with the coach but in all sincerity could not fault the hotel . The situation was lovely , probably the best part of the bay, The beds were very comfy, the staff were excellent and the meals were spot on. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Admittedly some of the rooms backed on to the railway lines. We actually had one of them . Did it put us off ?? no not one bit. The trains didn't make much noise at all.If this was all the people had to complain about then they should get a life.Any hotel facing the sea has one side that doesn't. This was a really lovely holiday and we would definitely go back to this hotel .Thanks to all for making it a lovely break

Room Tip: ask for a room at the front
