Only stayed two nights but enjoyed it - clean and comfy, lovely owners making us really welcome, friendly atmosphere and the breakfast was very tasty. Handy location too. Well recommended. Only downside would have been limited parking but we didnt need it.

Arrived with our parents for a weeks holiday. Fantastic. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived to when we left to come home. Rooms excellent. Breakfast excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. We left feeling part of the family. We will definitely return. Thank you Lorraine, Brian and Jonathan. Amazing!!!!

Single room is two flights up on the top floor, however there was no door to the toilet area and the shower cubicle was on the opposite side of the bedroom - in the room! The room is also overlooked by building on the hillside opposite and the occupants seemed to spend a lot of time on the balcony meaning...

We stayed for 6 nights in early June. This small hotel is perfectly situated at the end of the promenade, away from the bustling centre of the Paignton. There is an easy level walk to the shops, railway and bus stations, plus the harbour and seafront. The whole property is immaculately clean, and the rooms comfortable with televisions and good...

We are a young couple and really enjoyed our stay here. Fantastic room, great hosts and a lovely breakfast. It is right next to two beaches, one a classic beach resort and the other a little cove next to a beautiful old harbour. There is free parking for guests which gives you one less thing to worry about on the...

We were booked in next door but we had to be changed to this B&B due to double booking. How lucky were we, what a lovely couple they were, we were made welcome from the start and throughout the week the treatment we received was second to none. The breakfast is to die for

Stayed at The Sands for the first time last week and really enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful and our room was top class. The excellent breakfast meant that most days we didn't require much sustenance at lunchtime. Thank you Lorraine, Brian and Jonathon.

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
