What a lovely, welcoming and hospitable B&B. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was wonderful, rooms were lovely and great location. When we left it felt like we were leaving family and we cannot wait to return - especially to see Harvey who is an amazing little character and just adds more charm to an already wonderful hotel.

Spotlessly clean, comfortable rooms. Staff couldn't do any more to help, they were always friendly and went out of their way to look after us. Top class breakfast, anything we wanted they provided, even down to their homemade yogurt. will definitely be back again.

Ian and Craig are great hosts and give an amazing welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was outstanding, the bedroom and bathroom were really spacious and very comfortable. The hot tub and bar were great extras. Would definitely recommend and plan to return. Thank you for making our weekend great.

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
