hotel right by the sea, perfect for reflection and relaxation, in the heart of the English Riviera.

Preston Sands Hotel,a hotel right by the sea is a unique, and quirky home-from-home in Paignton, Devon.  Set in the heart of the English Riviera the hotel looks out onto the large sandy beach of Preston Sands and across Torbay.
Ideally located in one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations, on the South Devon coastline the hotel occupies a peaceful spot, with no through traffic, allowing you the opportunity to truly get away from it all.  Enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the English Riviera and the natural beauty of nearby Devon coasts and moors.
The hotel is currently being redecorated updated ready for the coming season and will be open for guests in March.
The cafe and dining room is being redesigned with a new menu and style and will be open for residents, passing walkers, cyclists and swimmers at the beginning of March. Join us for good food, organically and locally sourced where possible and gorgeous views in the new KindaKafe.

Our Ethos

Preston Sands Hotel works with an ethic of compassionate consumerism and a good business conscience, by donating the profits of the hotel to good causes, through The Missing Kind charity.  So you can rest easy at the hotel on the beach, knowing we’re doing our best to create a better world, both for your holiday and your future.
For this coming season we will also be offering relaxing breaks with a chance to recharge and refresh through yoga, mindfulness and tours of the glorious Devon environment.
So however you choose to spend your holiday on the English Riviera, allow us to provide you, your family and friends with a base that gives you kindness and care in every action.  From our warmest welcome to our excellent service and our delicious home cooked food at our unique hotel on the beach.
