We have never visited Torquay before and my husband looked at reviews before booking this one , it was to celebrate our first Wedding Anniversary , we had the most fabulous few days felt truly welcomed and looked after , the room was perfect and a lovely full English breakfast! We will visit again if in Torquay.

We booked The Marstan last minute through trip advisor, after having read such amazing reviews from previous guests, and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is set back far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle, but not too far to walk into Torquay either...and the walk itself is quite pretty. Craig and Ian are such welcoming hosts, and... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in early July 2015. We were highly delighted with the accommodation. Our room was room 8, which had a queen size double bed and a pleasant view from its windows, overlooking the owners' private garden. The garden with its colourful flowers and large banana trees had an attractive and exotic feel. The... More

Some avid movie goer's say that when you go see a film you love for a second, third or fourth time, you see things you hadn't done. This... More

This was our first stay at the hotel and we did not know what to expect. The room was not as large as we were used to but was exactly as listed on their web pages. The proprietors Ian and Craig were exceptional hosts and always had time for our boys, helping our youngest to overcome a fear of dogs.... More

We were given lots of useful advice and tips on where to go and where to eat on check in, and both owners were very friendly. Rooms were very nice and lovely decor! Very clean and also comfy beds. Breakfast was... More
