Full description

The Sands is enviably located at the western end of Paignton Seafront, in what must be one of the best trading locations in the holiday resort. Its smart frontage and easily accessed car park can be seen by all traffic travelling along the Esplanade and this location is yards from Paignton Green Sea Front, the Beach, Paignton Harbour, and the Multi-plex Cinema.

All of the bedrooms have well appointed en-suite facilities with shower cubicles, WC and wash hand basins and all are attractively and comfortably furnished. Smartly decorated public rooms on the ground floor provide an extra dimension to the property and are of a size and quality often associated with a larger hotel, while the ground floor commercial kitchen is extremely well fitted and equipped.

The Owner's Accommodation is provided by a two bedroom self contained apartment which can be accessed from the rear car park or the first floor half landing internally and this provides good sized well proportioned accommodation, including a lounge, two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and storage.
