“We love our visits to the Sands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

We have stayed at many hotels over the years, and this is by far the best.Brian and Lorraine are so accomadating and are only to happy to assisst with any issues that may occur during your stay.The rooms are spotless and the breakfast is the best l have had at any hotel.The Sands is situated in such a lovely position that you are not too far from all that Paington offers, with only a short bus or car ride to Torquay or Brixham.I love this place and have already booked for next year,so see you then for another action packed week,Ian and Karen.

Room Tip: We have room 9, it`s on the top but the view is fantastic

After reading other reviews it seemed to good to be true, after staying there for 7 days we found it to be excellent . Brian Lorraine and Jonathan could not do enough for us they make you feel most welcome just like old friends. The hotel is spotlessley clean and very roomy the breakfast is second to none with plenty of choice. Brian keeps a well stocked bar for those evenings in,even has outside heating on the patio that overlooks the seafront, already booked for next year (can't wait)

Room Tip: Any with sea view

Have to agree with all previous comments, we had a great week, Brian, Lorraine,Johnathon and Scoob even made sure that the weather was brilliant.
Came back with a better tan than our friends who had spent the same week in Spain.
Thanks again folks.
Brian, it's your round next time we visit.

After reading other reviews about The Sands, we were excited about our stay. We were not disappointed, as our week was very, very enjoyable. This is a lovely bed and breakfast with an excellent location for both the harbour and the town centre. The rooms were very presentable, clean with modern facilities such as digital TV and with no clutter ( phew ). There was plenty of room to store our belongings for the week. The breakfast is superb with a variety of choice - and nothing was too much trouble for Brian and Lorraine through out our stay. We were made to feel very welcome and made use of the bar. Brian, Lorraine and Jonathan even socialised with the guests. Ample parking either on the front, or at the rear of the premises meant we could leave the car and not worry about it, during our stay. We would definitely recommend The Sands and we will be returning. Thanks Brian. Lorraine and Jonathan – oh and Scooby. The McMurray family
