Our normal hostelry, the Chudleigh, was closed for a well-earned week's break and the owner recommended we try the Sandrock, under new management. The Sandrock is well-located and quiet. Our room, smaller and less luxurious than the Chudleigh, was nevertheless a reasonable size and well equipped (including two chairs and a table), and the bathroom worked but was small. We... More

The room was a lovely size and bathrooms recently renovated. Breakfast was lovely and served by hosts themselves who are very friendly and helpful. Great location, 3 minute walk to pier. Parking at hotel but additional parking available. Fast free wifi.

A truly lovely B&B in a period property with many of its original Edwardian features. Christine & Roberto gave us such a friendly & warm welcome, that made us feel at home almost straight away. The large windows in both our rooms allowed so much light in which didn't make them feel dark and gloomy. The en-suite bathrooms are new... More

Lovely hosts, room was lovely and warm, beds comfy, what more can you ask for. Dogs welcome at a small extra charge. Free Wi-Fi that works. Just a very short walk to the pier and sea front. It doesn't come better than this at the price. Recommend to all.
