“Excellent Break”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Had a superb long weekend break in this splendid guest house.
Our recently refurbished room was excellent and the breakfast could not be faulted.
Russ & Helen made ourselves and our friends very welcome, we will be returning.
Would not hesitate to recommend this guest house.

This is a great value for money guest house. Our room and bathroom was immaculate although slightly dated. There is a lovely guest lounge and bar. Breakfast was fresh and tasty although only served between 8.30-9.00am.....we did not feel overly welcome in the morning and were quite pleased to get going.

Just got back from a fantastic break away.at the Sandpiper.Guest House in Torquay it is rated as four star and quite rightly so. We stayed there for bed, breakfast and evening meal. The food is first class. The proprietors, Russell and Helen are very accommodating and cant do enough for you. It is a bonus that they are also dog friendly. Would highly recommend this guest house.

Warm, welcoming and well- run, this is a lovely place to stay, Russell and Helen make everyone feel at home. The rooms are nicely decorated, well furnished and very clean. The hotel has a spacious lounge and cosy bar. The breakfast was delicious and the service excellent. It is in a quiet road with its own parking. There are lots of attractions and lovely countryside to visit in the surrounding areas. Many guests happily return year after year and, if you stay here, you will understand why.

What a great place to stay. Warm welcome from the owners. Immaculately clean and comfortable public and private rooms. Cosy bar with very reasonable prices and choices of chilled (or unchilled), bottled beers. Excellent breakfast. Convenient location to walk to beach, harbour and town and yet peaceful at night. Off-road parking. Astonishing value. Would stay again without any doubt at all.
