Had yet another great holiday at The Sands. As usual on arrival was greeted so warmly. Lorraine, Brian and Jonathan are such wonderful hosts. The hotel is spotlessly clean, with everything you need. The breakfast is freshly cooked . The best I've had. With everything you could wish for. Can't wait to come again soon

Stayed at The Sands many times in the last 14 or so years - the service is always the same high standard, with no complaints whatsoever. Brian and Lorraine make everyone feel like family and are so welcoming. Breakfasts are excellent, rooms immaculate. Would recommend The Sands to everyone !
