We had a fantastic break at the Marstan Hotel. We were made to feel very welcome by Craig. Lovely staff, lovely breakfast with lovely chairs, lovely comfortable bedroom, lovely décor throughout. Everything was just lovely. Great places to visit and the walks surrounding the hotel were fantastic...thoroughly enjoyable break.

We had a very enjoyable and memorable 3 day experience in Torquay. We booked the Marstan Hotel based on the excellent feedback it had received on the Tripadvisor website. Craig and Ian lived up to their billing and met all of our needs. The breakfast was excellent and the youthful Trisha certainly enhances this experience. We stayed in the room... More

We stayed here for a week in the four poster room which was just beautiful and well worthy of the 5 start rating. The breakfasts lived up to the reports, they were just superb, cooked fresh to order and plentiful, served by Trish who was an absolute delight to meet. The location is fabulous only taking 10 minutes to walk... More

We always stay at the Marstan when we visit Torquay. The accommodation is lovely, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is superb. There is a discount for regular customers too. There is parking on site and a short walk takes you into town. Absolutely lovely.

Great stay at The Marston. Lovely king room and excellent full English breakfasts on both days. Located not far from the main town albeit a bit of a hill walking back up but this enabled us to walk off the food we ate. Would definitely recommend.

What a fantastic stay. We arrived late Friday evening and were greeted by a smiling Ian who immediately offered us a drink whilst we checked in. Whilst we were completing the paperwork our bags were taken to our room and Ian provided us with a list of places to visit and eat in and around Torquay. The service was impeccable... More

Had an excellent 4 days at The Marstan having had a similarly excellent stay last year. The recent additions of Harvey and the ginger mogey made it even more special :) Spent all my spare time engrossed in Ian's book Murder at Torbaydos which HAS to be read whilst staying here. Total page turner and I did manage to finish... More

We visited the Marston B and B the location is close to Meadfoot beach as well as close to Torquay harbour. The breakfast had a good choice from full English to scrambled egg and salmon bagel. We will definitely book here again in future as the hosts were very welcoming and made you feel at home. Fantastic place to stay

The marston is a beautiful old villa, decorating standards very high and so is the cleanliness of the rooms. All done out in beautiful ornate furniture, fantastic chandeliers everywhere. The owners Ian and Craig are very pleasant people and make you feel very welcome without being obtrusive in any way. They also have a very friendly and beautiful dog called... More
