This is my second time I have stayed here and again I Was made to feel at home and Parker was adorable and made the holiday. I tried a different room this year but was not disappointed, it was just as comfortable and very clean. The breakfast was just as I remembered from my first visit, if not better, with all the surprise bakes each morning. It’s a wonder I did not put any weight on but they were worth it.

Stayed 2 years ago and despite a change of ownership still the great stay we experienced before. Still have the touch of a cupcake on arrival in your room and a very good and varied hospitality tray plus fridge with fresh water and milk. Bed very comfy and nice sized bathroom and all things you need for a stay (shampoo, shower gel, soap, etc) Breakfast choice was amazing and despite loving a full english out of the 4 nights we stayed i actually had the large breakfast granola bowl 2 days it was that nice. Every day as well we had an extra treat to try and they were all a hit for sure (pancakes, Savoury muffin, quiche and cake which were all lovely) Flat 10-15 minute walk to town, free parking on site, free Wi-Fi there isn't anything not too like. Al covid procedures in place and felt fully safe. Dirk and Graham were great hosts and Parker the little dog was a massive hit as well. Many thanks and will be back again for sure.

We stayed here on a long weekend for a couple’s getaway for our anniversary. When we arrived we were greeted by the very welcoming Graham & Dirk (and Parker the Frenchie). Our room was immaculate, spacious and had everything we needed. We were greeted in our room to homemade cupcakes and a wide variety of teas, hot chocolate and fresh milk. On arrival, the hosts were very accommodating asking us which teas we drank ( I am fussy and have fresh lemon with green tea) something which they went out of there way to provide me with each morning at breakfast. Thank you! This small touch was greatly appreciated. We were also given suggestions by Graham and Dirk on places to visit in Torquay which was very helpful as we had not visited here before. The breakfast provided each morning really was outstanding. The menu provided a wide variety of dishes and we could find no fault with the food. The homemade Greek yoghurt and the homemade marmalade and strawberry jam was absolutely delicious. The only one issue which we had was a faulty shower head which can easily be fixed. However this was out shadowed by the fantastic hosts and spectacular attention to detail. Overall, our stay at the Marmalade B&B truly was outstanding and the hosts really couldn’t have done much more. We would definitely return when we come back to Torquay and recommend to family and friends who were also visiting. Thank you Graham and Dirk for such a wonderful stay. I
