Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

Upon arriving on New Years Day after a long night working at an event close by we was made to feel very welcome right from the start. (And to be honest that was more enough considering the "very merry" state a couple of my friends was in due to New Years Eve celebrations! An early check in was arranged for us and that was also a life saver. Now embarrassingly my said friends went off to enjoy the in house Bar Facilities (and did a little to much) as I heard that one of them fell if their bar stool (may I add the Bar is very cosy) also mixed with the fact that keys was left locked in rooms on more than one occasion throughout Russell remained very polite, patient and helpful... Which if I'm honest is more than I would have been! Russell was very helpful with info regarding where to eat and such around Torquay. Finally the Full English just before we left was also a treat - great produce, delicious breakfast and a great continental spread laid on also. The whole place is very clean, welcoming and warm with all the facilities you would need for a comfortable stay. I honestly cannot say enough about this place and would deff want to return upon my next visit to Torquay, maybe next time for some site seeing with my little girl.

The accommodation was excellent and the room spotless. The cooked breakfasts on both days were first class. Although the bed was a double (we are used to a king size) the sheets and decor were lovely. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and we would be happy to return again in the future.

Helen and Russell were very hospitable and gave us lots of advice about what to see and even gave us their own ticket to see Kent Caverns as they wernt going to use them.The rooms were great, the bathroom is small but adequate. Location is good with a short walk to the seafront and very close to a very good Indian resteraunt. The value was tremendous getting 4 nights for the price of three by booking direct. There is a bar with reasonably priced drinks and food can also be had if you want an evenig in. Over all we had a great stay and very pleased we chose to stay here.

WE booked this online early in the year, as never been to Devon before. On arrival we were at ease rite away. Nice well decorated room en suite, very well equipped and spotless. Helen and Russell were very helpful, and the breakfast was superb. Yes we will stay here again.

Room Tip: They are all good

We Were made very welcome at the Sandpiper, with a restaurant recommendation that was very useful.Our room was in the attic and small with the bathroom across the corridor, (unfortunately I couldn't lock the door which was slightly unnerving even though it was for our use only). Comfortable beds and a good TV made our stay feel homely.
Breakfast was great, a lovely choice of fruit and every need was catered for. A half hour slot for breakfast was fine for us but might not suit everyone.
I think the price was very reasonable and very well located for the town.
