We were greeted with smiles despite our arrival time being only 5mins before check in closed. Shown to our lovely room. So clean, modern and comfortable. Breakfast was awesome! We have to be back in Torquay next month - so we booked our room at the Sandpiper whilst we were still there! Love Torquay and now love this guest house!

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.
