Immaculate kept room, extremely comfortable bed with quality bedding and linen . Sparkling bathroom . The food was beautiful . Ian and Craig were the perfect hosts - they deserve a flourishing business because of all the extra effort they put in . We will defiantly return when next staying in Torquay .

Had a lovely time at the Marstan. The hosts Ian and Craig were very friendly and really helpful as to things to do and see. The hotel itself is excellent, comfortable, relaxing and lovely to stay at. The Swimming pool and Jacuzzi were an added bonus. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Could easily stay a week or longer. We did not have a week regrettably. Torquay is great enough but the staff, location and food at the Marston make it worth planning a return trip. Nice job Greg, Ian and staff!!

A nice quiet guest house, in a good location, between a beach and town centre / harbour. The guest house is very well kept by Ian, Craig and their staff. Breakfast was very good, lots of choice and the home made granola is superb!!! There is also a well stocked bar and heated outdoor pool and hot tub!!!

We have just returned from 3 nights in Torquay staying at the Marstan. We stayed in the family room with our 2 boys age 5 and 8. We couldn't really fault the hotel, the service and cleanliness. We made great use of the pool and hot tub, with the beautiful weather. The breakfast was lovely and the boys particularly loved... More

We booked The Marstan originally because we couldn't get into the nearby hotel which was holding our friends wedding and boy are we glad that we did. The Marstan is a very lovely olde worlde hotel with fabulously old fashioned style. We were greeted by ian on our arrival and offered tea or coffee whilst we checked in. The lounge... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marstan Hotel is an elegant mid-Victorian Villa peacefully located along Meadfoot Sea Road in a conservation area. The harbour and town are approximately ten minutes walk with the blue flag awarded Meadfoot Beach and its stunning views being less than five minutes on foot. An extensive refurbishment program saw The Marstan achieve a five-star guesthouse rating in 2007. In keeping with the period of the building, the hotel is traditionally furnished with antiques complemented with modern amenities such as contemporary bathrooms, flat screen televisions, wifi and ipod docking stations. The Marstan is the only five star guesthouse in Torquay to benefit from a combination of an outdoor swimming pool, hot tub and a licensed bar. The owners and staff endeavor to provide an attentive and personal service without being intrusive, with the aim of creating a luxury boutique hotel ambiance. ... more   less
