We've just spent a lovely 4 days in Torquay at The Sandpiper. What a wonderful place to stay for so many reasons:
Russell and Helen are friendly, professional and there to make your stay perfect. I forgot my phone charger and they lent me theirs.
All of the rooms are beautifully decorated and SPOTLESSLY CLEAN, including communal areas. We had a huge lovely shower en-suite and as it was more than a little chilly in Torquay we needed a lovely warm shower on our return.
Russell's cooking isn't bad either! Breakfast is a choice of cereals and/or fruit followed by a great English breakfast of your choice of items, to set you up for the day.
We also ate on 2 evenings and the food was of the same high standard at very competitive prices.
I seriously can't fault The SandPiper in any way whatsoever and would recommend a stay there to anyone. Reasonable rates, great home from home atmosphere. Give them your business, we'll definitely be going again! A huge thank you Helen and Russell, we feel we have some new friends! from Sue and Alan x

Stayed for four days in January with our elderly pet dog who enjoyed her stay as much as we did, owners Helen and Russell made us very welcome and although the room was on the small side it was very clean, well designed and decorated, comfortable king size bed and immaculate en-suite bathroom with large shower. Full English Breakfast was excellent with wide choice of cereals fruit juices etc
Russell does all his own decorating and has finished the rooms to a very high standard.
Would certainly recommend it to guests with own transport as it is a little way from town centre.

Room Tip: Room No.1 on ground floor ideal for those with pets and also for easier disabled access.

Just had 2 days in Torquay and second time staying at The Sandpiper. We were very impressed the first time we stayed, and we weren't disappointed on this occastion. The room we were given was large and well furnished and very clean. The lounge is very comfortable.

Unfortunately, my wife picked up a sickness bug the morning we were due to leave. Helen was most kind in providing a bottle of water and sick bags for our journey home. Many thanks, Helen!

I can certainly recommend guest house as excellent value for money.

My daughter and I have just returned from a two night stay at the Sandpiper guest house this being our second visit. As always the room was immaculate with a lovely spacious and what looked like a brand new bathroom. I've never stayed in a hotel/guest house that was so immaculately clean. We were pleased that breakfast was served between 8.30 and 9.00 as this allowed us all day to visit my son and grandson. The breakfast was plentiful with a hot cooked full English breakfast we also had an abundance of fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt, fruit juice, tea and toast. I think because we were the only guests on Friday, Russell waited up for us to ensure we were back in our room safe, nice touch :))))
Russell and Helen as always gave us a warm welcome. Looking forward to returning next year for my sons wedding.

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.
