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 programme has helped us achieve a five-star guesthouse rating, AA gold award, Landlady of the year and a Michelin guide listing.
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, Wi-Fi and iPod docking stations.
The Marstan is the only five star guest house in Torquay to benefit from a combination of an outdoor swimming pool, hot tub and a licensed bar.
The owners and staff endeavour to provide an attentive and personal service without being intrusive, with the aim of creating a luxury boutique hotel ambience.
Whilst Torquay can trace its roots back to the 12th century, the town came to prominence in the mid-19th century when the railway connections to London were built. Torquay rapidly became a fashionable seaside resort with the wealthy gentlemen of the period building holiday homes in the area.
The Marstan is believed to be one such villa built around this time. Originally, a private home the building became a boarding house in 1912 known as The Pembroke. The hotel at that time had 20 bedrooms and three bathrooms occupying the same living space as is currently utilised, rooms were a shilling a week.
Fortunately, many of the original features of the hotel remained intact. In the 1980's, as tourist expectations rose the then owners decided to halve the number of bedrooms to provide bigger rooms with ensuite bathrooms.
Largely untouched since then until 2005, the current owners embarked upon a massive refurbishment programme repairing the fabric of the building, installing modern ensuites, redecorating and furnishing throughout. Further upgrades and improvements to the property continue.
The Marstan is one of the highest rated five star guesthouses in Torquay
