We first used Sandpiper when me and Matt decided to get away from current life for a couple of days. At £30 per person a night, it was very reasonable. Booking was easy and Angela and Roy were very friendly and professional.
This time, I returned to Sandpiper with my Mum. We had two single rooms, one en-suite and one with a shared bathroom. Both rooms overlooked the fabulous beaches of Barmouth and Fairbourne. Prices were very reasonable at £33 pp pn. The rooms were simple, but comfortable. The beds are especially comfortable. I am not one to spend a lot of time in my room on holiday. They are a place to sleep at night, however Angela's attention to cleanliness is worthy of mention. One word, meticulous.
Breakfast is well cooked and pleasant to eat. Plenty of toast and a plate full of food. Food was nice and hot.
As for our hosts, Angela and Roy are friendly, courteous and professional. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They are very keen on railways and railway modelling, as the multitude of books, magazines and framed pictures will indicate. Anybody with an interest in railways would do well to stay here.
To sum up, Sandpiper is a no-frills B&B that provides nice, clean and comfortable accommodation for a modest price. I will definitely be returning and recommend anyone to come and stay at this little gem.
