I was recommended to try the Sandpiper Guest House by some friends who visit every year. Everything about the Sandpiper, its location, cleanliness, fantastic food, and above all Helen and Russell the proprietors who did everything to ensure your stay was as pleasurable as it could be.

Booked to stay overnight at the Sandpiper after reading all the positive reviews. The hotel is in a great spot, immaculate and beautifully decorated. Helen & Russell are great hosts and deserve all the positive feedback - it really is that good and the breakfast is fab! Will definitely go back & highly recommend - wish we could've stayed longer!

Many thanks to Russel for making our stay a good one. This pearl of a guest house is perfect, from the well maintained garden to the rooms and restaurant. The breakfast is great and lots to choose from, if you are in Torquay and manage to book a room here you will not regret it
