See the Sea!

Devon is one of the UKs favourite holiday destinations due to the scenery, good food and great outdoors! Join us in Torquay, to tuck into a cream tea, have a go at surfing or enjoy a good pub lunch after a coastal walk. Astor House Apartments are set in an unrivalled spot of Torquay, overlooking the beach and Tor Bay, a few hundred metres from the town centre. The lavish Victorian Villa boasts two contemporary wings, and offers spectacular self-catering apartments in the heart of the English Riviera.

Torquay has its own warm microclimate and offers an abundance of leisure activities, with 22 miles of coastline offering sailing, walking, or colourful towns to explore. Whether you are looking for a fun-filled family holiday, a romantic coastal break or an activity break, Torbay has opportunities for everything. Known predominantly for the birth of Agatha Christie, the vibrant and cheerful town of Torquay offers a relaxing sea side break, or a town brimming with activities and excitement.

Most apartments come with breath-taking uninterrupted sea views from our south-facing cliff-top location. The apartments are an ideal base to explore the surroundings areas of the fisherman's town Brixham, or the funky town of Totnes. With new restaurants, bars, the marina and high street shops a stone's throw away, there is something to entertain everyone.

Being perched on the coast just above the beach, you can amble along the paths absorbing the panoramic views of the Bay, and not worrying about taking a wrong turn, you're bound to end up somewhere special! After a day of fun, return to the modern and luxurious apartments, to relax and unwind, or head off into town for a delicious dinner and drinks. The apartments provide the space, comfort and freedom a hotel lacks, allowing you to put your own stamp on where you stay.

We offer corporate and winter lets too.

Our new concierge service can make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible by arranging tickets and restaurant tables, shopping and delivery, laundry, car valet or a much needed pamper with a hairdresser, nail technician, ask for anything you wish!

Great location, equipment and cleanliness

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay with the apartment being very clean and tidy with a good level of equipment for my stay, the only thing I would say is that the carpeting is looking a bit tired and has some signs of wear/damage but on the whole I had a real good experience and would book the apartment again, thank you, kind regards William

50th Birthday spoilt by Rude and unhelpful housekeeper

  • 3 of 5

Just returned from a short break in Astor House Apt No 5 . Had originally booked No. 11 as i wanted a smoking allowed apartment and had contacted the proprietor to ensure this was allowed in No 11. He agreed this was ok as it was the only smoking allowed apartment in the block, so i was happy to pay the deposit.

On paying the final amount I noticed I had been charged twice so I contacted the proprietor and after realising his mistake he refunded the amount back to my account.

A week before we were leaving i received the email with the door codes and a contact number for the housekeeper and the apartment had been changed to No 5. I contacted the proprietor via On LIne Chat and asked about the smoking and he agreed to make an exception and allow it in No 5.

We arrived on Friday and had a knock on the door on Saturday , it was the cleaner who had been sent by the Housekeeper to tell us we were not to smoke and that people had complained about smelling it in the house! I explained the situation and off she went to report back.

I then felt the need to discuss this with the housekeeper as i was very annoyed that the weekend was being spoilt by this so rang her and left a message to contact me asap. She rang back but i got nowhere , she insisted that not only could we not smoke in the apartment but also that NO apartment was smoking allowed , not even No. 11 and hadnt been for at least 3 years. She told me we had to go down to the garden to smoke and if we didnt we could be fined. I told her we were not doing this as it had been agreed with the proprietor and she hung up on me. How rude was that.

Had i of known we were going to to get this trouble I would never have booked it.

I can't reccommend the apartment because of her.

A nice apartment block

  • 4 of 5

A very nice and quiet set of apartments. A bit of a walk to the sea front so a car would probably be best.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Astor apartments, it was all very clean and modern. We would definitely stay here again but we would upgrade to a sea view room as the views were amazing from being so high up!

No view at all. We were so disappointed. Small beds and a strong smell of mold in the kitchen area. We couldn't sleep the seagulls were screaming loudly and We had to close the windows - it became very hot. The manager Steve was not very nice on the phone.

Owner's Response: The guests were expecting three separate beds contrary to the information shown on websites and unfortunately there were no other available apartments to offer them.
