Loved the room

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 19 Sept 2022
Loved the room and had a great nights sleep on the bed. Bathroom was very nice too. Had a great view over the golf coarse as as being close to the beach and all that Torquay has to offer. I would definitely recommend The Sands to my friends.

I attended Sands for a 3 day conference and found the venue to be perfect for this experience. During the day we had a view over the golf course for our sessions, the catering was of a very high standard and the rooms were very comfortable.

Thoroughly enjoyed 2 nights at The Sands in a well equipped quiet room with a view overlooking the golf course. We had the pleasure of enjoying all the amazing facilities including the gym, indoor pool, bar and verandah as well as 9 holes of golf on the Saturday afternoon. The hotel is a $11 Uber to Torquay center so enjoyed dinners out in town. All in all a fantastic relaxing weekend at The Sands !

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during our recent holiday in Torquay. The room was spacious (34 square metres), clean and comfortable. It had a large balcony facing the Golf Course. The views were excellent.

A king size bed, a study table and a large 65 inch smart TV with netflix, Amazon TV, etc. were good features.

It was off peak season, so there were very few people around. Our room was a corner unit and there were no occupants in the room next to ours. It was very quiet and peaceful.

We had a full breakfast at Spike Cafe on both days and a drink at the bar one evening. I swam 50 laps in the swimming pool on two days.

Room tip: Corner room on 2nd floor facing golf course.

I can not speak highly enough of the overall experience. Great for a catch up even if you were not playing golf. The resort is well maintained with a great selection of spacious, comfortable rooms available. Very convenient to eat in with a lovely meal. Highly recommend!

Room clean and good (other block out blinds letting light in). View of the golf course great, gym good - but the bar and dining room design and the common areas woeful. It appears that management opened the hotel when the rooms were ready but forgot about everything else.
