As guest houses and private hotels go this is amongst the very best. The only thing that takes it out of the "excellent" bracket for us was that the en-suite facilities in our room were rather on the "tight" side, However. I appreciate that this is an issue for many proprietiors of older properties seeking to provide modern comprehensive facilities.... More

The Sandpiper is a credit to the owners. We received a warm welcome; the room was well furnished and spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower was very good - powerful with plenty of hot water, and the breakfast was absolutely superb. You can order an evening meal and there is a bar with a pleasant seating area outside... More

A great place to stay with excellent service and a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Very friendly and helpful staff. Had an enjoyable breakfast which left us feeling filled up until mid afternoon.

We spent a week at the guest house and it is immaculate, food well cooked, service was way above great. We felt welcome and though we came by car, if we had not we would have been collected from the nearby train station. Helen and Russell are very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the comfortable bed and lovely room. This... More

I have just spent 4 wonderful nights at the Sandpipers, from the very minute we arrived until the minute we left we were treated to an experience far superior to any 4 star hotels we have stayed in . Our hosts Russell & Helen were second to none and the personal touch they have achieved in every single aspect, has... More

I stayed at the sandpiper for 4 nights with my mum and sister June 2014. The rooms were really clean and nicely decorated. Excellent and varied breakfast. Helen and Russell were super friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Short walk to seafront. Would stay again. Thank you :)

We stayed at the Sandpiper for one night. Our accommodation was bright and very clean. We had a lovely walk to the Theatre in Torquay from the Guest House, although should point out it is quite a hilly walk. Breakfast was delicious and nothing too much trouble. We would certainly book to stay in this Guest House again.

We stayed in The Sandpiper for one night only. We arrived very late but were warmly welcomed by Russell. Room facilities were excellent. Very airy and exceptionally bright and clean. The en suite had a huge shower cubicle and the water pressure great....so nice not to have to step into a bath for a shower. All toiletries were supplied together... More
