Just stayed at the marina guest house. Exceptionally clean and modern. Hosts were very welcoming. Thanks for making our stay so relaxing and comfortable. Great value.

Immaculate accomodation, very friendly hosts. Made myself and hubby and three yr old son very welcome. Wonderful breakfast with lots of choice. Hosts gave us discount voucher booklet for local ammenities which was great as saved us a few pounds! Ground floor family room lovely and quiet with beautiful en suite. I love those tiles!! As a family we would have no hesitation in recommending this guest house for your stay in Torquay.

HOW WERE YOUR HOSTS- 10 very pleasent and helpfull

HOW CLEAN WAS MARINERS- 10 spotless cleaned and tidied daily

HOW WHERE THE FACILITIES -10 lots of extra bits for guests

HOW DID YOU SLEEP - 2 bed was to small lumpy mattress very noisy road needs double glazzing

HOW WAS BREAKFAST - 10 excelent lots of choice and good hot food on hot plates

WOULD WE STAY AGAIN - maybe if we had another room and a better bed, no sleep in our case was the problem.

Room Tip: ask for back room away from main road small double is like a large single bed.

We just arrived home from a very pleasant break at the Mariners Guest House in Torquay. What can I say, absolutely spotless room, immaculate bathroom and faultless service. Fresh towels every day, tea and coffee in the room and a breakfast fit for a king.
Whatever you normally eat for breakfast will certainly be catered for, from fruit, cereals, yoghurt, to a full English with all the trimmings.
You also get a warm welcome from the owners; in fact my bags were whisked away to my room while I parked the car. Would I go back, what do you think?

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are quieter.

We had a nice stay at this B&B. We were welcome and given information about places to eat, directions etc. We booked a small double and it was indeed small, but that's what we booked! There was enough room for the two of us and the room was clean and well laid-out. The ensuite bathroom was much more dated than the rest of the room, but was also clean.

Positives:
- Great breakfast - loads of options, all very fresh and tasty. The dining room is lovely.
- Very clean and tidy
- Decent in-room amenities - TVs, tea and coffee facilities, plenty of lighting etc.
- Parking...but...

Not-so-greats:
- Parking is limited and the spaces are small.

It may be worth mentioning that this guest house is on a relatively busy road which made the bedroom at the front of the house quite noisy - but, in the centre of Torquay, that's exactly what you'd expect.

Reviewed 11 September 2011

I booked our stay at the Mariners at the very last minute, when we decided to stay in Devon rather than drive down on the day for a family function. Although the owners had very little notice of our booking their welcome was delightful; warm and helpful, and our room was fresh, contemporary and spotless. They gave us a map of the area, recommended a restaurant for dinner, and when I requested an iron and ironing board they came and set it up for me, even though it was Saturday evening and might not have been ideal timing for them.

Breakfast was in a lovely airy room, and was as good as other reviewers have said; I had perfect poached eggs on toast.

We parked in a public carpark a couple of minutes' walk from the Mariners, which cost £2 for 24 hours - very reasonable and kept the parking spaces free for people who might be a little less mobile than us.

We had a brilliant stay and will definitely return.
