Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Torquay - Apartment 10 Astor House Warren Road Torquay TQ2 5TR

Sleeps 4 guests in 1 bedroom

Set within a beautifully converted Victorian villa with contemporary wings overlooking Torre Abbey Sands and Tor Bay, Astor House in Torquay offers stylishly furnished self-catering holiday apartments in the heart of the English Riviera.

Most apartments come with breath-taking uninterrupted sea views from our south-facing cliff-top location. With a quiet residential setting yet close to the beach in central Torquay, this picture-perfect spot is also the ideal base to explore the surrounding area.

Spectacular sea views steal the show in this exclusive ground floor apartment. Gaze through floor-to-ceiling windows in a light-filled living room, dining area and double bedroom, relax on a large wrap-around balcony, and whip up meals in a modern well equipped kitchen. Also with a modern bathroom with shower over.

Local restaurants, cafes, the marina and the scenic beachfront are all within walking distance and it's also just 500m to the town centre. As well as the many beaches and family entertainment, rugged walking trails on nearby Dartmoor are only a 30-minute drive away as is the cathedral city of Exeter with the beautiful South Hams on your doorstep.

When you’re ready to unwind, our recently updated one and two bedroom apartments offer the kind of contemporary comforts to make you feel right at home, with plush furnishings and high-end amenities throughout. Compared with a hotel room, the much greater space of our fully equipped apartments let you spread out in comfort with your own separate lounge, kitchen and bedroom.

Astor House offers everything needed to relax when you want, for as little or as long as you want, throughout your self-catering holiday in Torquay. We offer corporate and winter lets too.

Following a complete refurbishment, every apartment also offers the following features as standard:

Fast free Wi-Fi

24/7 access

A fully equipped kitchen including a microwave and washer/dryer or dishwasher

Communal laundry

Flat screen digital TV with DVD with dvds, games and books

Bed linen and towels

Limited reserved parking at £5 a day or unrestricted roadside parking

Cots and highchairs available on request

Pets in designated apartments (5 and 12)

Throughout your holiday, your personal needs and requests will be handled by our House Manager.

10 Astor House, Torquay

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely with fabulous views across Torquay bay, this does mean though that you get some traffic noise but nothing extreme. The apartment was clean but not immaculate as there were some old dusty parts to it and some dirty plates in the cupboards. Facilities wise it was perfectly adequate and the living area furniture was comfortable. Our daughter came to stay with us unexpectedly and Jaqui the house manager delivered a fresh set of linen and towels with no hassles.

Sadly due to the extremely uncomfortable bed, road noise and communal bin area at the rear of the property where the bedroom is situated I wouldn't stay in this particular apartment again but would stay higher up in the block.

Location location location .... A real stunner with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Open lounge with balcony with amazing views. Everything you need for a delightful break. We paid extra for parking and was glad as in August the road was busy with cars already parked. Walking down to beach front easy 5 minute walk down and hilly walk back so we tended to leave the car and get a taxi back usually less than £5. Best places to eat turn left and left onto sea front. Stunning bays breathtaking.

All restaurants here have comfortable seating with sea views. We took £3 return boat to Brixham approximately half an hour really worth doing. Other trips easily available for days out. Will be back. Jeanette

Another wonderful stay in Apartment 10!!

  • 5 of 5

Yet another wonderful stay in Astor House, apartment 10. We have stayed at Astor house every year for 6 years now and we keep coming back so that says it all really.

Stunning views from the apartment and the spacious balcony. Perfect location to access the bars, restaurants, harbour and beach. Parking available for £35 for the week with allocated space and lockable bollard so nobody can pinch the space.

We didn't use the kitchen much but it's got everything you need, including a washing machine should you need it. All essentials are provided (iron, board, hair dryer, airers, bedding etc). A lovely touch was the bottle of prosecco with two glasses and a bottle of milk in the fridge!

Jackie (the lady who looks after the apartments) was very helpful when I called to arrange checking in.

A very pleasant stay and we a booking again right away for next year.

location excellent/ poor leval of cleaniness

  • 3 of 5

The location over looking Torquay seafront was excellent. However for the rates charged we thought the level of cleanliness would be of a high standard, however we found a list of issues including - dust on television/table, mirrors not cleaned, roasting dishes not washed, rubbish found under cupboard in living room, grease along ledge of worktop, mould and dirt gathered inside shower screen at bottom, skirting board at back of bed covered in dust.

It is our opinion that the apartment had not been properly cleaned before our arrival..
