Booked in last weekend because of having to do a flying visit to Torbay because of a relative's illness. It was the first time I had stayed here for 25 years and didn't know what to expect, especially as it was very much out of season. I was very pleasantly surprised. Rooms are spotless, and nothing too much trouble for... More

we have just been on our first holiday at this hotel, and cannot recommend it highly enough. Carol and Martin are lovely people and make you feel very welcome as soon as you walk through the door. The hotel is very clean and rooms are excellent. Martin cooks a top rate breakfast. Thank you to both Carol and Martin for... More

Once again I stayed with Carol and Martin at their Torbay Sands Hotel. The rooms were clean and tidy and the upstairs rooms, 12 and 14, have the best views of Torbay from Brixham right across to Torquay. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the effervescent Carol and Martin's breakfast set me up for the rest of the day.... More

We've just returned from a long weekend, staying at the Torbay Sands Hotel. Many other reviews talk of the warm welcome that they received and we would certainly echo this. In my own case, this part of Paignton goes back to my own childhood. We spent many a family holiday at Preston beach and in those days, we had a... More

We travel to Paignton regularly and stay at the Torbay Sands. Carol and Martin are always cheerful and make us most welcome. The rooms overlooking the sea have fantastic views across the bay to Torquay and Brixham, as does the breakfast room. The rooms are always spotlessly clean. Parking is available right outside, which isn’t always the case in the... More

Still as good as our last visit in July. Warm welcome on arrival, beautiful view from room 8 and lovely breakfasts cooked by Martin, served with a smile and a laugh by Carol. Hope to return again soon.

My partner and I had 2 nights here in mid August . Our room was very small, but was clean and had a nice view over beach huts and the sea. The bathroom was fairly new, but there was a train track literally right outside it, which light sleepers might prefer to know about before staying here. Carol was a... More

Lovely inn, in a very picturesque spot, run by incredibly nice, welcoming people. Carol goes out of her way to provide a warm, helpful atmosphere and offers everything she can to make your stay worth repeating. Definitely would return if back in England, again.

What can I say, its been a really good weekend at Carol and Martin's hotel. Very friendly couple who make my mother in law feel very welcome along with ourselves, she has now gained another "son" and "daughter", as both Carol and Martin always call her "mum". The rooms are lovely and the views from the hotel are spectacular, you... More
