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

Our room was immaculate, newly decorated with good quality furnishings and the en suite likewise. Everything was spotless. We were very comfortable throughout the week.

Went to Torquay for the Royal British Legion AGM and stayed at the Sandpiper and found it to be a friendly and comfortable guest house. The food was very good. They catered for us as well when we had to leave early in the morning for meetings. Thank you Helen & Russell for making us welcome and your 2 children

Myself, my wife and two daughters stayed for one night. We had a double and twin room that were next to each other and set apart from other rooms, ideal for us as a family. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, very peaceful at night so a good nights sleep was had by all. The breakfast was wonderful, good... More
