It is quite difficult to write a review for Villa Marina as it has all be said before by previous reviewers! It is easy to see why they have won tripadvisor awards. It is a comfortable, calm, well appointed, spotlessly clean and friendly place to stay. There are many nice touches to be found - probably better than hotels of... More

What fantastic weather you had for your few days here in Torquay. There has been so much doom and gloom this year about the rain but actually it has been lovely here when it has not been elsewhere - that's why the Torbay was so popular as a resort and somewhere for the wealthy Victorians to come for a rest...

Viv and Peter were friendly and very helpful. As we were only staying one night, Peter recommended where we should go to make the most of our stay. Our room was clean and the wifi worked well. A good breakfast to top it off. Very enjoyable and would recommend to any other travellers.

At least the weather was good enough for you to enjoy the views from your window. The room you were in (Mallock) is ideal for that, being one of the bigger ones on the first floor.

Would thoroughly recommend the Villa Marina if looking for a small hotel in Torquay. The proprietors Viv and Peter are so friendly and helpful. It is so obvious they want your stay to be enjoyable and pay so much attention to detail. The rooms are spotless and well furnished and the breakfasts are superb.
