“Fantastic friendly place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

Rooms were spacious clean and tidy. Booked triple en suite and twin room with private facilities. Fantastic breakfast with wide range of choices. Facilities excellent with a well stocked basement bar. Hosts were welcoming, very friendly and nothing was to much trouble. A very well run guest house would definitely recommend the Sandpiper to anyone wishing to stay in Torquay. Fantastic guest house and value for money.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, the room was spotlessly clean and very attractive, the breakfasts are amazing and the guest house itself has everything you could ask for - a lovely garden, a bar and a lounge. It's worth going to Torquay just to stay at the Sandpiper!

Room Tip: I'm sure any room would be lovely there.

Can't fault anything. Russell and Helen were very welcoming and made our stay very enjoyable. Our room was well situated, very clean, good shower and the bed was really comfortable. Breakfast and evening meals were both excellent and they catered well for our daughter and she loved the food. Would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone who wants a great place to stay. Our daughter was upset to leave today as she had a great time. Will definitely be making a return visit next year.

As guest houses and private hotels go this is amongst the very best. The only thing that takes it out of the "excellent" bracket for us was that the en-suite facilities in our room were rather on the "tight" side, However. I appreciate that this is an issue for many proprietiors of older properties seeking to provide modern comprehensive facilities. That said the hosts (Russell and Helen)and "staff" (Adam and Laura) could not be faulted for service and helpfulness and the Sandpiper provided a well presented, clean and comfortable base for our 5 night stay at a very competitive rate. The breakfasts were large and to a very high standard, we had two evening meals which were reasonably priced and good value.

The Sandpiper is a credit to the owners. We received a warm welcome; the room was well furnished and spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower was very good - powerful with plenty of hot water, and the breakfast was absolutely superb. You can order an evening meal and there is a bar with a pleasant seating area outside or you can sit in the communal lounge, another clean and pleasant room. We would highly recommend the Sandpiper to others and look forward to staying there again in August.

Me and my boyfriend had our first holiday together in Torquay and stayed at the sandpiper. Service was outstanding, more than expected for a four star rating. Rooms are superb and well done, staff are great&the food is excellent! So good we even rang them to see if we could go over for dinner the night after we left. Dog friendly, excellent. Can not say a bad word.
