We stayed for 3 nights and were very comfortable and we liked the owners who were personable and helpful. The hotel is located close to meadfoot beach (nice) and is a 10 minute, pleasant walk into town and this is ok and saves using your car. We stayed in one of the largest rooms, with a bay window and it... More

This is a great place, would highly recommend a stay here. Very high standard, extremely clean and lovingly cared for. We enjoyed the king room and a massive tasty breakfast every morning, tea etc in the room, big TV, large bathroom. Off road parking as well. Lovely quiet area of Torquay within easy walking distance of the town and Meadfoot... More

The hotel had some nice period furniture and was well located ten minutes walk from the harbour and beach. The best thing in my opinion was the breakfast, there was a buffet... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for the positive comments within. It was indeed unseasonably cold during your stay. Despite it being August, we did switch on the central heating. I appreciate that the room you booked is very large, with high ceilings and a triple aspect sash window, therefore it may not have been... More

Absolutely wonderful stay. Perfect location. Perfect room. Perfect hosts and perfect breakfast. Welcoming and friendly staff and owners. Couldn't do enough to please. Tricia's service at breakfast is second to none. I stayed a weak and nobody got the wrong order. She's a whiz and an absolute asset. Delicious quality food which was cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. Would... More

A very warm welcome and Craig was so helpful in suggesting restaurants and places to eat. He even rang and made a reservation for us so we didn't have to bother ourselves The Marstan is well maintained and our rooms were spotlessly clean with tea making facilities which is such a bonus. the two ladies serving breakfast were so polite...

I had planned to write a long review about all the amazing and wonderful things about The Marstan, but I've decided I can sum it up in just one sentence. The Marstan is the place all others should aspire to be like, perfect in every way. Thank you and sorry about the late night visit. Ian & Emma.

Just had 5 nights at the Marstan, first class, exceptionally clean, good location and very quiet, Ian and Craig are great hosts and provide excellent recommendations on places to go, ate out 5 times on their advice and were not disappointed. We will not hesitate to return. The Greens.

One of the best hotels we've stayed in anywhere in the World. Craig and Ian are the perfect hosts, the staff fantastic and breakfast delicious. The best place to stay in Torquay. We really can't recommend it enough.

This was our third stay at the Marstan, so we're already huge admirers. It really is a special, unique and beautiful place to stay. Each room we have stayed in has been simply gorgeous. The breakfasts are outstanding quality, and, as a vegetarian, I loved the halloumi with the full veggie breakfast, my partner loved their fabulous bacon and their... More
