Marine Parade , Paignton, TQ3 2NU
The Preston Sands Hotel is fittingly known as 'the Hotel on the beach'. Boasting modern and well appointed accommodation, with an enviable reputation for providing a warm welcome with friendly and attentive service – you are in for a treat! Every bedroom is fully modernised and fitted with every expected modern comfort and convenience. All are en-suite with toilet and either a bath or shower, colour television, freeview, hairdryer and tea/coffee facilities. The lounge is the perfect room for a quiet moment or two (or simply a cup of tea!). Huge panelled windows offer stunning sea views. Our restaurant also has magnificent panoramic views for you to enjoy whilst starting the day with a delicious home cooked full English breakfast. We offer a varied and interesting menu with 3 course evening meals and a wide selection of wines are available.

Mainly good
Easy to find and park, no-one was in reception for at least five minutes but when someone arrived we were dealtwith quickly and efficiently. The room was a good size, drawers etc were plentiful, even if the furniture might have benefitted from a rub down. Mattress on bed had springs very near the surface and was not cmfortable, otherwise all was clean and cooled by the open window.
Breakfast was a little slow service but once into the system service was quick. We did not have the evening meal but it looked good value. Most staff were very friendly and helpful

Hotel by the beach
Nice location, right opposite Preston Sands, private parking as well. Lounge and restaurant had lovely sea views, breakfast was good. Rooms a little dated, but ours was on the ground floor, therefore no view, but comfortable enough. Tea/coffee facilities fine, but no free biscuits, there were some in a basket in the room but you had to pay 50p for them! However, very good value B&B price, roughly £69 per room per night in September, so you really can't complain!!

The staff seemed more friendly and willing to help than during my last stay. Ironically, my minor complaints this time concern the room, which was fine last time. It was a cold snap when I arrived, and my original room facing the sea was too cold to bear, (the radiator in the room was on full blast, but was much too small for the size of room) but I was quickly allocated a warm room at the rear with no fuss. In the bathroom, I think there was supposed to be a light over the mirror, with a pull switch, but it didn't work. The step up into the shower is quite high off the ground, and I came a cropper once getting into the cubicle, but I have a dodgy hip. The bathroom / toilet was the cramped, disappointing part of the room, with just a dribble of water from the shower at the required top temperature setting. The bedroom itself was a twin, and had plenty of room for just me, and was perfectly acceptable.

I did not feel particularly welcome at the hotel, although nothing bad occurred. There was something of the take-it-or-leave-it attitude about the staff.
