My friends and I have just returned after 4 days at the hotel. Although our room had probably the smallest shower ever (although our friends had bigger showers which have been updated) it was clean. The breakfast and dinner menus, although small, were very good and have no complaints. The waiting staff could not do enough for you and Eddie...

For an over night stay it's ok, with clean comfortable-ish beds. However the cooked breakfast consisted of some really poor quality meat products ... shame as staff where hard working and friendly. It's location is ideal for Paignton .... so leaving out the breakfast I would consider returning.

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.
