Booked here for me my partner and wasn't happy with the welcome! Straight away felt uneasy probably because we were in our early 20s didn't seem welcome! Didn't even have breakfast on the last day as we didn't want the whole awkwardness in the morning! Would not return. As much as we loved Torquay we will stay somewhere else!

Not sure how this reviewer stayed with us during February 2015 as we were CLOSED for major refurbishments at that time! More

Had another lovely stay and will definatly be returning sometime this year. Nice quiet location in a cul-de-sac off the main road. Not far to walk to the sea front going through Tor Abbey gardens. Along the sea front you can catch a bus to different locations in the area.

This is such a lovely place, the family were very welcoming and made us feel at home. The room was just perfect. The breakfast was outstanding with lots of variety. We will certainly be booking here again.

Hosts Russ and Helen always make you feel welcome, the rooms are all first class, lovely bar area downstairs with a good selection of local bottled beers. Its a shame I rarely get time to stay for one of their breakfasts !! I can highly recommend the Sandpiper

Our group of three had a lovely night's stay here in October 2015. Our very large room was divided into 2 parts, so the area with the singe bed was afforded some privacy to the section with the double bed. A lovely big bathroom, delicious cooked breakfast and excellent WiFi contributed to a very enjoyable stay. There is a public... More

Lovely room, clean, large and comfortable. Stayed in a triple room, plenty of room for 1 adult and 2 older children. Freshly refurbished bathroom. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries on the breakfast table - nice touch and much appreciated.
