The Torbay Sands Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 29, 2013

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 could almost think you were abroad. Martin cooks a really nice breakfast and, according to Gary, the best fried bread he has ever tasted. Looking forward to our next visit at the end of August.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are all really nice, room 8 is nice and cosy.

Just returned home from another fabulous holiday at The Torbay Sands Hotel Paignton. Carol and Martin keep such a high standard. Everything is done to make your stay so special. Hospitality, cleanliness and food brilliant, can't thank them enough, they are simply the best.

Room Tip: All the sea view rooms have spectacular views, but the dining room and patio do as well.

Yet again we have had a great stay at the Torbay Sands. You couldn't get a more friendly reception than at this hotel. Carol and Martin are wonderful hosts and they really want you to enjoy your stay.

The hotel is ideally located on the sea front of Marine Parade overlooking the beach huts and within easy walking distance of the town centre. From our window we could see Torquay to the left and Brixham to the right - you could be forgiven for thinking you were abroad.

The hotel is very clean and comfortable and it is clear to see that Carol and Martin are investing in the property. Breakfast is great - Martin's eggs are cooked to perfection and Carol's cheery banter starts the day off well.

Already booked for 2014 which will be our 14th stay (7th with Carol and Martin) and we can't wait.

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortable but the seaview rooms are definitely the ones to go for.

Outstanding service,location, cleanliness and hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay even the weather couldn't ruin our short break. My partners peculiar food requirements were met with a smile and delivered without complaint .The Sea view was breath taking and well worth the extra payment.
