Just back from a two night stay as a couple at The Marstan, was a really relaxing time and was a fantastic base for us. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The ensuite facilities were fabulous. The owners Ian & Craig with their rescue labrador Harvey made us really welcome. It's only a 10 minute walk down to the...

Spent one night here while walking the SW coast path. It is well located for this as it is less than 200 metres from the path. We had a long walk that day and tea followed by a shower and then a spell in the hot tub was the perfect way to finish. We had an early start the next...

We stayed in September 2016. We checked in late and headed straight out for food. Torquay by night was shocking. Not the English Rivera I was led to believe. For every doorway there was a vagrant. All bars had bouncers, and they needed them ! However the B&B was nice. I was happy to get through the door after our...

We had a really pleasant stay at the Marstan in September 2016. As other reviewers pointed out the hosts, Ian and Craig, show a remarkable hospitality. The house has a nice typical british atmosphere and the breakfast with self made yogurt and full cooked breakfast with local produce is delicious. The hot tub in the garden is a special delight...

It's always hard to judge a hotel from the internet, but we were very happy with our decision to choose The Marstan. The building and decor was beautiful and Ian and Craig are great hosts...so helpful and friendly...easy to tell they love what they do. I wish we could have stayed more than one night.

Ian and Craig were excellent host, the Marstan Hotel is a charming period property, with decor to match. We thoroughly enjoyed our short break in Torquay. Also we would like to give an honorable mention to Harvey the Dog who plays a valuable role meeting and greeting the guests.

We had a two night stay at the Marstan Guest House which was perfect. The accommodation is clean, the beds are comfortable and the breakfast is amazing. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

We found this hotel recommended on TripAdvisor when touring Devon and booked for one night, last minute. The hotel is a Victorian House brought back to life by the owner/operators, Ian & Craig. The attention to detail is incredible. The beautifully decorated room we had was large and airy. The breakfast was superb

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
