We stayed at the Marquis for five nights 20th - 26th September 2013. Having enjoyed our previous stay in 2010 when it was under the previous owner we heard of its' change of ownership and recent refurbishment and we were very excited to return to see how much it had improved. We were certainly not dissapointed. There has been a tremendous improvement
in the bedrooms, including new carpeting of good quality. Bathrooms are brand new with a lovely shower in ours also of good quality. The food both at breakfast and the evening meals
has seen a big improvement and is now in our opinion worthy of a higher 'star rating'
Our room / bedding & bathroom were very clean with plenty of tea/coffee etc. and bisquits replenished every day. Mike and his Staff were always very helpful. This lovely hotel is a beautiful building with loads of character internally. The dining room in particular has a splendid view toward the sea. Surely there can't be a better place to eat anywhere in Torquay!
The Marquis is ideally located a short walk from Torquay centre on almost level terrain and has a private access on to Tor Abbey Gardens and sea front. It would be suitable for families or business travellers alike. Having really thought hard for something to criticise I have to conclude that there was nothing at all - everything seemed just really good. reasonably priced as well. Well worth a visit. We will certainly have no hesitation in recommending the Marquis to all our friends and we will certainly be returning. I think we had better book earlier next year as when word gets around about this place I may find them fully booked.
Thank you Mike and all your staff for making us feel so welcome during our stay and for explaining your plans for this lovely hotel. My wife and I wish you all every success in the future.
Regards John & Daph Rollings
