    We liked our stay in de Sandpiper Guest House very much, the owners were very friendly and helpful, everything was very clean, and the breakfast was excellent besides the menu for english breakfast there was lots of fresh fruit every morning. The location itself was very centrally situated.

    My wife and I stayed here for four nights at what we thought was a very good price.The hosts are very welcoming and attentive without being overbearing - often a difficult balance. The hotel is very well furnished and spotlessly clean. Our room (No. 3) was actually a family room but we paid only the rate for a double. It... More

    This bed and breakfast is a real gem, it's set in a quiet area but still near enough to access amenities. We visited Paignton zoo, Cockington country park which you could walk to and I would recommend. The breakfast was excellent and such a wide range, it was delicious. The room was immaculate and Russell and Helen were perfect hosts.... More

    My hubby and I have just spent a few days back at the Sandpiper Guest House in Torquay. As usual it is A1. The rooms are lovely, bathroom glistening, everything gleaming. Food great, cutlery sparkling. The breakfasts are brilliant. Thanks again Helen and Russell for a great stay, we`ll be back.

    Husband and I stayed here the first two nights of our trip to the UK, Helen & Russell were very warm and welcoming hosts. The Sandpiper is meticulously clean and our room was well appointed and equipped with a very comfortable bed and an ensuite bathroom. We had forgotten our electrical adapter at home. Our hosts kindly lent us one... More

    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!
