Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely beautiful B&B. Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds. All you can ask for. Thoughtful little touches in the room for Christmas when we first visited and for Valentine’s Day for our second visit. Pete and Tracey are so very welcoming and friendly. Will definitely be coming back here to stay, and would 100% recommend

Sandway House is a "must" visit boutique B&B just a short walk away from the town Centre. Tracey & Pete greeted us with a warm welcome on a very wet day. The house is welcoming and stylishly decorated. We were a group of 3 and had the top floor which comprised of two rooms, one twin & one kingsize (or bigger as the bed was huge), both rooms had their own basins and there was also a separate shower room/toilet. Rooms are beautifully decorated, beds extremely comfortable & lovely fluffy white towels. There are tea / coffee facilities along with bottled water which always comes in handy. Everything was spotlessly clean. Sadly we didn't experience the breakfast this time as we ate "on the go" on our coastal walk from Torquay to Brixham but I'm sure it would have been exceptional. When we asked if we could pop a bottle of fizz into a fridge Tracey was more than happy to accommodate us and even went the extra mile by chilling us some glasses. we would like to thank Tracey & Pete for recommending a little detour to the beautiful village of Cockington to enjoy the Apple Fair.........a little hidden gem ! We would highly recommend visiting Sandway House.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review! We are happy that you enjoyed and appreciated our newly refurbished Boutique B&B. Our private top floor suite is always very popular and is perfect for a stay with friends and family. Cockington Village is certainly very beautiful and we are so pleased that you enjoyed spending some time there on Apple Day prior to your homeward journey. We hope to see you all again in the future. It was a pleasure. Peter and Tracey x

We stayed for 4 nights with Tracey and Pete. They were very welcoming and provided any information we required on the local area.Sandway House is well located close to the seafront, and the room had eveything we needed. Tracey's breakfast was delicious, the granola and yoghurt being a particular favourite. We would highly recommend Sandway House for a stay in Torquay or Devon.

Another great stay at Sandway House. Tracey and Peter are the perfect hosts. They are friendly, helpful and very genuine. The whole place is spotlessly clean and absolutely immaculately decorated by Peter who must obviously be a perfectionist ! The breakfast is excellent with more than enough choice - cooked by Tracey and very well served in a perfect breakfast room. Overall first class and highly recommended. Derek and Elaine.
