My daughter and I were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. For example, I don't drink tea or coffee so Louise made sure there was a selection of good quality herbal teas available in the room. The towels were large and fluffy and the beds comfortable. Our room was a...

Very professional young man greeted me on arrival and offered to carry my bag, Ben, you are a star!! Was told all the important information i.e: when the bar was open and breakfast time!! Room was clean, comfortable and VERY quiet. Shower was very space age - I've never seen one like it before and it worked a treat. Big...

Just stayed in The Torbay Sands Hotel for a birthday weekend. Great location on the beach and on a dead end street which is quiet. Parked the car up and didn't move it for three days as everything is within walking distance. Dog friendly hotel, great breakfasts and Sunday roast. Friendly owner who comes out to speak to you in...

Incredible. One of the nicest views of anywhere I've ever stayed in Europe. Our entire wall was basically one huge window that overlooked the sea. It was a glorious view. The bed was comfortable and there was hot water and plenty of it in the shower. The Devon cream tea was delicious. Louise is an amazing hostess. She treated everyone...

The torbay sands far exeeded my expectations. A warm welcome was accompanied with a free drink on arrival. Was shown to my room in no time. Spotlessly clean, modern in design. As a solo traveler who booked in late I didn't get a sea view room but for the low price I paid I was more than impressed with my...

Small quiet hotel which in my opinion allows the owner time to value the customer. A very warm welcome, large freshly cooked breakfast while over looking the sea and clean rooms. Couldn't ask for more.

A beautiful en suite room. With a stunning sea view. Owner Louise can't do enough for you, not only do you get a complimentary drink on arrival but everything is very reasonably priced. Nothing is too much trouble. Our room was clean, bright and comfortable. Shower smallish but adequate!! All in all a stunning location with stunning staff 10/10

Really lovely hotel. Room was well appointed with crisp white linen and fluffy towels. Plenty big enough for myself and my son for our nights stay. The view was amazing despite the awful weather. Staff very welcoming and friendly Breakfast was hearty and hot. The dining room also had an amazing view and u just love all the vintage crockery....
