Just returned home from a week at Villa Marina, Torquay. What an amazing place! The hosts Vince and Erwan are fantastic. Such a welcoming place, and special in every way. Beautifully presented, immaculately clean and luxurious. The room was beautiful with so much thought put in by Vince and Erwan that we felt completey spoilt throughout our stay. The breakfast range was huge and diverse, cooked to absolute perfection by Erwan. Our long awaited holiday as a couple, was made memorable by our stay at this very special place, wonderful hosts and their gorgeous dog Merlin

Just returned home after spending three nights at the fabulous Villa Marina, Torquay. On arrival we were met by host Vince who was very friendly and made us feel welcome immediately. We were shown to our room which was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The amenities in the room were excellent and included mini fridge, tea,coffee, sweets, chocolate, crisps and tv with Netflix. We later met Erwan the co-host who was equally welcoming as Vince. During our stay we explored Torquay Marina, Brixham, Paignton and Teignmouth so the location of the Villa Marina is excellent. Breakfast cooked by Erwan was outstanding and his full English is highly recommended. Both Vince and Erwan made our stay perfect and we will definitely return to this outstanding accommodation and would highly recommend to others. A real gem.

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 day stay at Villa Marina and we were seriously impressed. We arrived earlier than scheduled and were greeted at the carpark by Vince, one of the Villa Marina owners. He informed us our room wasn't quite ready as we were early but cheerily took our very heavy case up to our room so we went off to explore Torquay. He texted us once the room was prepared to let us know. Our room was spectacular with every amenity we could wish for such as a mini fridge, Netflix, Alexa, chocolates and a variety of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and an espresso coffee maker. The bed was large and comfortable and we had a garden view. The morning breakfast was plentiful and cooked to perfection by Erwan, the second owner. Erwan recommended The Prince William pub as we informed him we were going to spend the day in Brixham. We had the best fish and chips and lime/chilli infused calamari ever! The pub overlooked the sea and on our return to Torquay we relaxed in the Villa Marina garden with our chilled wine before retiring to bed. We had a wonderful stay and would like to commend Vince and Erwan for their warm welcome and expertise. Truly a jewel in Torquay Bay! Thanks again guys. Danny and Loulla

Vince and Ewan are wonderful hosts and we were so well looked after. Our room exceeded our expectations, it was beautiful with lovely furniture, comfortable bed and pillows. The bedding was beautiful and lovely white towels and toiletries provided. Very good selection for breakfast and Ewan cooks a lovely breakfast. We wished we could have stayed longer but we will definitely be going back.

We arrived at Villa Marina on Sunday and this was our first visit. We were greeted by Vince and Erwan (and Merlin the dog) who are just lovely. We were offered coffee whilst we when through a few things before being taken to our room. The facilities are amazing. Everything was spotless and well presented. We have absolutely no complaints of the standard of our room. Our breakfast order was taken the day before, where we could choose off of a list. The breakfast was amazing and the service was great. We can understand why their breakfast's have won awards. Vince and Erwan were fabulous hosts and couldn't do more for us. Nothing was too much trouble. They were happy to recommend places to eat and even kindly booked us a table at one of the local pubs. We really enjoyed our stay and we will be booking again with you soon. Thank you.

We’ve just come back from a fantastic stay at Villa Marina with the wonderful Vince and Erwan. This guest house is exceptional and so much love and attention has been put into creating somewhere very special. We had a really warm welcome and were shown to our beautifully appointed room. Great care, detail and attention to everything. The room and bathroom were spotless and had everything you need such as toiletries, snacks, fridge, glasses, bottle opener. The breakfast was out of this world. So much choice and cooked to perfection and your exact order. Erwan was very kind and catered for my milk and gluten intolerance. He also had a special allergy toaster, so would be good for coeliac too. Nothing was too much trouble and they’re the best hosts you could ask for. We can’t wait to return!
