Traveller from ., GB Date of stay Aug 2016 - Location 5 Excellent - Cleanliness 4 Good - Facilities 5 Excellent - Service/Staff 5 Excellent - Would you recommend this property to other travellers?Yes - Comments about this property: Lovely welcome, very attentive but not too much just the right amount, perfect location and if you are in a bedroom in the front the second glazing window stops and unwanted road noise I was very impressed. Also breakfast excellent and catered well for vegetarian(it's crazy how still so many bnb's look at you like your an alien when you say your a vegetarian) but Luckily not the Mariners They had Vegi sausages unfortunately quite a rarity in bnbs sadly. I myself had meat full English and was all good quality and cooked very well...... Location is excellent and although private carpark can become full quite quickly there is parking for free close by.

It felt like you were in your own home. Other guests were also very polite. Sea was a 2 two minute walk and breakfast was lovely to top off a great Guesthouse - Tips for other travellers: About a 5 minute walk and you are in range of about 20 restaurants. There is some great views and boat trips at good prices too. Fishing also proved popular, however the general are in some places looks run down which ruins it a bit. The location of the hotel looks a lot more traditional and well kept compared to a lot of places down the high street.

Nothing was too much trouble. The husband and wife team were smashing. Bed was great and we slept well.

We are old school and a bath is so rare now a days. - Tips for  other travellers: Plenty of choice and beautiful sea front.

June 2016 - "lovely stay and brilliant hosts" we have just spent a lovely weekend at the mariners guest house and could not fault it at all. The room we stayed in was a good size and was very clean, as was our bathroom.The hosts Dave and Annette were brilliant, with a good knowledge of the area. The breakfast was included in the price and was fantastic, we would defiantly recommend this guest house and plan on returning with our children later in the summer - samiharfield, UK

June 2016 - “Excellent Guest House” We stayed in the Torre Abbey Room, and although we knew it was a King Size double room, we were pleasantly surprised to find the en-suite had a bath as well as a shower. The room was large, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was great! I had the full English and my wife had scrambled eggs on toast. There was a good buffet with lovely filter coffee, which was made better by the lovely breakfast room setting and lovely decoration. Dave and Annette are lovely hosts, warm, welcoming and very helpful. We look forward to returning hopefully later in the year, and highly recommend this guest house - PEvans, UK

June 2016 - "Lovely Stay" We recently had a very enjoyable stay at the Mariners in Torquay, where we initially received a warm welcome from Dave and Annette. Dave was only to willing to take both our cases up the stairs, where we stayed in the "Torbay" double room. The room itself, was very clean, warm, with a modern en-suite. Breakfast was served the following morning in their large, beautifully decorated Breakfast Room on the ground floor with TV, over-looking the main road. We both had the Full English which was very tasty, although there were a good choice from their buffet, along with tea and filter coffee which we also had. We loved the quirky original features, such as the Mariners folder in the room, themed key fobs that linked to the room and the beautiful Mariners painting in the hallway. For the location, it was about an 8 min walk to the seafront and about the same from the train station, and we look forward to our return trip later in the year - S & T Biggs, UK

"Excellent Stay" We had a lovely stay Dave and Annette were very good hosts and went out of there way to provide things we wanted on breakfast that they never had like honey and bananas to go with the fruit they already provided and the Full English was lovely too very nicely cooked . The rooms were very clean and comfortable , we will no doubt return on our next visit to Torquay - May 2016

May 2016 - H Markham, UK - "Clean, affordable, perfect location" The room was warm, clean and a lovely breakfast. It is in the perfect location, with a 10 minute walk into Torquay and the harbour. Dave and Annette are very welcoming and have recently taken over the B&B.
