    The whole place was spotlessly clean and the staff were apologetic. The location was unbeatable, at a medium distance from Mint Casino. I visited a beach restaurant and loved the local meals they offer. Its attentive service. Food was splendid and I have nothing but perfectly pleasant memories from this trip.

    Delicious breakfast, beautiful executive double room. We loved sitting on the sunny balcony. It's 4-6 minutes walking distance from Alberts Bar with nice drinks and cocktails. Moreover, we parked onsite😀😀

    Our complaints were taken seriously and we were given a better room. We will definitely not book again at Abbey Sands.

    Basic equipment defective, like functioning windows. Meals, especially breakfast. Poor in terms of quality and presentation

    My rating of Tregorran Guest House should actually be here, because in the Tregorran Guest House the rooms were small and the bathroom could only be reached via the hallway. Because the hosts were so nice, I wanted to do without an evaluation. I hope you can correct my mistake afterwards and assign Abbey Sands Hotel my good rating.

    Great central location, friendly and helpful staff.

    First room smelled very strong. After complaint we changed the room. Unfortunately the windows (of these two rooms) can only be opened about 10 cm, so ventilation is hardly possible.

    The location is good. The friendly lady at the reception deserves special mention.

    The hotel is already a bit outdated and unfortunately everything is a bit outdated.
