Stayed for three nights.Made most welcome and bedroom, as with rest of the guest areas at the property, was very clean, in fact spotless, with the décor to a very high standard and a nice modern en suite with a good comfortable bed. Nice range of options for breakfast and the cooked breakfast was excellent.

Having had such a good stay before I had to return this November. Helen and Russell offered to collect and take me back to the station knowing that I have mobility problems. The rooms were spotless and comfortable and the good breakfast set me up for the day. I can thoroughly recommend the Sandpiper as a friendly and comfortable place... More

A very welcoming guesthouse where nothing is too much trouble. Very well situated, just 10 mins walk to the seafront. Food amazing, hosts wonderful and everything fresh and clean. Can't wait to stay again.

Visited from Florida for two nights with another couple. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay in every respect....a pleasant room, good food and a very lovely couple who greeted us each morning with a nice smile and friendly conversation... Russ and Helen. Enjoyed our visit to the area, especially Slapton Sands in nearby Devon. Highly recommend the Sandpiper.

The food is wonderful, and at breakfast you are spoiled for choice. We feel that we have known Russ, Helen and their children forever as they are so... More

An excellent, extremely friendly family run guest house in Torquay, not far from the sea front and main town. Russ and Helen do their utmost to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The breakfasts are superb with a wide choice of cereals and fruit, followed by a full English and toast - you will not go hungry for the... More
