Reviewed 3 March 2014

I chose this hotel based on previous observations in Tripadvisor and was not disappointed.
The checks in and out were very efficient with something of a personal touch. My room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the stream. There was very little external noise and I don't think a room facing the road would have been a problem. The room was very clean and well presented. I slept OK and was particularly pleased that there were sheets and blankets and not a duvet. I find all duvets, regardless of the tog value, too warm. The breakfast costing £7.50 was all embracing with a good choice. I selected smoked haddock and poached egg for my main and the haddock was of a good size. The service at breakfast was of the highest standard.

All in all, at £40 for my double room, it represented excellent value.

Room Tip: Probably best to overlook the stream but probably only a marginal benefit to be gained.

A very nice hotel with a fast check in, the room very nicely decorated. The bathroom was very modern and very spacious.

The food was to a high standard and very reasonably priced. The barman was very friendly and called me by name as I had booked food to my room he took the trouble to remember my name.

Breakfast was a full English with Tea, Toast, Tea/Coffee and a wide range of cereal and fruit.

All in All a great stay at a reasonable price.

I will return again

Me and my husband shared our wedding reception with our friends and family here and couldn't fault any part of our afternoon/evening! When we first walked in I was amazed at how wonderful the room looked. The staff were all very professional, friendly and welcoming...they all went to any lengths possible to give us exactly what we wanted. Such a lovely bunch of people! The food was absolutely delicious! All of our guests commented on the lovely food and staff and I would definitely recommend the hotel to everyone. We had the perfect wedding reception so thank you to everyone at the sandpiper hotel :)

Room Tip: we didn't use the fitness centre so can't comment on this...
