Holidays in Cornwall

Sands Resort Hotel (or Sands as most of us would call it) is owned by a local family who has been running hotels in Cornwall for 75 years. With 3 generations of experience we have been setting new standards of child friendly hotels and service that exceeds most family hotels in Cornwall and the UK.

We like to think that we were the first family hotel in Europe to develop children’s clubs and the first hotel in Cornwall built specifically with families in mind. As a privately owned hotel we are all about the personal approach so often missed in large hotel chains. For us it’s the little things that make all the difference.

We listen to our guests

Some of our guests have been returning every year for 20 years. Seems like we are doing something right. Throughout the year we listen to your feedback and each winter we invest in changes around the hotel that our guests have asked for, ensuring that Sands provides everything you would like to find in a family hotel.

If you have any feedback, ideas or suggestions, we would like to hear from you.
