We have owned the property since 2005. We bought it in a pretty sorry state having suffered from years of neglect with a badly leaking roof, avocado bathrooms and an overgrown garden. A big refurbishment programme saw us gain a five star rating and we achieved a gold award last year. There are many hotels in Torquay to choose from but we feel we are one of the best in the area due to our location (5 minutes from the beach), great rooms, excellent breakfast and attentive staff.

We thought the hotel was beautiful. Staff were so kind and helpful. Hot tub was amazing bonus! Lovely place to go for quiet relaxing weekend. Also in fab location 2mins drive to main town. We will definitely back to stay again.
Hoping for the forecast glorious weather we choose this hotel for it's pool and hot tub - neither of which were operational. Phone ahead if it matters to you.
Spotlessly clean and very helpful and friendly staff.
Room, bed, breakfast, jaqouzzi, hosts
Breakfast was great.Hot tub was fun.
Attentive thoughtful staff First class breakfast Clean and Comfortable room
Ideal location, elegant interiors kept immaculately clean with a friendly and welcoming team, helpful when asked, we were looked after very well, food was excellent and fresh and our room was clean and comfortable and an overall joy to stay, we intend to return for more ! Thanks Craig and Ian
Nothing substantial-we would use it again. However, minor niggle, the breakfast coffee and breakfast toast needs to be upgraded to the high quality of the rest of this five star boutique guest-house. we went at xmas and maybe better quality bread would be more available in the high season. On the other hand there is always the local Waitrose bakery.
relaxed welcoming atmosphere grand piano and music the happy cleaner location the lounge and bar kippers being available pool and hot tub cooked breakfast staff very helpful
Craig and Ian such nice owners. Location. Quietness. Room. Bathroom was clean. Linen and towels clean. Furnishings. Bed was comfortable and could have slept longer. Bar for a drink. Restaurant for breakfast and it was very nice. Had choices. Will definitely return and stay at the Marstan GH and recommend to friends.

walking distance to town and beach
Very helpful staff and very polite. We used a restaurant that was recommended and it was excellent. Definitely stay again fore sure.
Amazing hosts nothing too much trouble service with a a smile
down side for me the little extras variety of tea bags ,fresh milk,water daily,chill box or fridge,Walk in shower (Bath not very good) for elderly.
Fixtures and fittings exquisite my type of furnishings,Found chatting to Craig very easy for a shy person(me). Breakfast all good and fresh (except kippers??)but you can't expect them to be fresh not a popular item.
lack of a blind at ensuite window.room carpet a little tired.
downstairs bedroom.good choice and good quality at breakfast.cleanliness.friendliness.helpful.clean towels everyday.
Craig and Ian gave us all a very warm welcome and were delightful company to be with. A very comfortable stay just a few minutes walk to the beach and coast in one direction and the town in the other. Many thanks!
Nothing all good
Relaxed and friendly atmosphere
Needs a little bit of a make over in areas to improve for me
Size of bedroom really good and lots if spac. Decore a bit tired and ensuite needing some repair work as bath quite badly chipped Breakfast quality not as good as other B & Bs we've stayed in considering it got 9.2 rating Not too far from township to walk
The wifi was intermittent
Wonderfully peaceful with delightful staff in a fabulous part of Torquay. A firm favourite with us. Just what you need to destress
In all honesty, there wasn't anything we found that I didn't like. It was a very pleasant experience.
The moment we went in, we were welcomed and felt at ease, the staff were approachable and engaging and wanted to ensure we were happy. the bedroom was beautiful. Everything was so neat and clean and extremely comfortable and the location was very quiet and peaceful. We will be back again.
Beautiful property with character and style.Greeted by very friendly staff who made us very welcome throughout our stay. Our room was very spacious with a King size bed and a pool view, The location was about a 10 minute walk into the town but quite a steep hill when coming back, so may not suit everyone. The full English breakfast was well cooked, presented and plentiful, with homemade marmalade for the toast. Had a great weekend and would definitely stay here again.
Parking a little cramped
Made to feel welcome as soon as we walked through the door. Craig was wonderful, friendly and informative. Room was spacious, had the wow factor. It was spotless. Breakfast was in the beautiful dining room lots of choices including fresh fruit and pastries and a selection of jams and homemade marmalade. Excellent full english and other hot choices, all freshly prepared and served hot on a pre warmed plate by the ever helpful Ian. Can't wait to come back
POOL WAS NOT HEATED. Car park fiddly, but could park outside in road.
Good reception,great breakfast, served with care, tasteful furnishings in country house style.
The outside pool had a lot of water spiders and insects so we didnt swim in it but that might just be me being a wimp!
The breakfast was lovely, the bed was very comfortable in the king room, the hot tub was great!
The room was small, the paintwork needed attention in both the bedroom & the dining room. Parking was a challenge.
On arrival we were greeted by Craig who was pleasant & informative.
