Mine host's welcome was warm and friendly. Sandpiper Guest House was spotlessly clean throughout. My stay was peaceful and restful. The breakfasts were sumptuous, second to none ! Take away sandwiches were available on request , at a small extra charge. Evening dinner was on offer with a good choice of two or three courses, and VERY good value. Altogether... More

My boyfriend and I have visited Torquay twice in as many years and the only hotel we stay at is the Sandpiper Guesthouse and will continue doing so. Helen and Russell are very friendly, and helpful host. The rooms are spotless and comfortable (ask for the 'plum' room) and the excellent breakfast is worth getting up for. There isn't a... More

I used the Sandpiper for a one night business trip to south Devon and found it ideal. Homely, clean, well located and great value. I will certainly stay here again, and can recommend the guest house to anyone. Thank you.
