First visit to Paignton for an overnight stay & booked at the Preston Sands. From start to finish I doubt you could find better service - the people are just so welcoming, friendly & helpful. The hotel itself is good budget accommodation in an excellent location & with parking available. Our room (number 4) was a decent size, with everything...

Had a wonderful first visit, of many I hope. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. The sea view from my balcony was second to none. The rooms were spotlessly clean. Amazing value for money.

This hotel is tucked away in Preston right on the beach. Its wonderful to have breakfast and dinner overlooking the waves. The hotel is extremely well kept and the heating is never turned off. The food from the in house chef is of a very high standard indeed and a varied menu coupled with a well stocked bar means eating...

Well Just read the review from Lavinia376 - Bury Port, it seems that she could not have stayed in the same hotel, as I was there over the 5 days that she mentions. The comments are totally out of order, rude and uncalled for. I have frequented this establishment for many years and all staff cater for your needs. Eddie...

The pillows were of poor quality - lumpy and thin-the duvet again of poor quality. At...
