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.

Just stayed a week at Astor House Warren Torquay. The first thing you have a problem with is deciding which is Astor House it is written on the front on the glass over the door but as you are going along looking and it is only one track because all the other side of the road has cars parked and people are wanting to get past you. Then upon opening the door you get an intense smell of old churches which is damp. Then the biggest surprise of all we are down stairs in the garden flat when ground floor was mentioned I thought ground the level on which I walk. I am partially sighted and 17 sheer stairs is no good to me, but I know they are fully booked and can't afford to loose £750 and book in somewhere else, the other guests kept telling me I should be grateful I am not in the top flat even more stairs. Arrived at flat 12 my husband managed in darkness cus the light outside the door had packed in to get us inside. It was spotless but just 1bedroom when my husband swore he had booked a 2 bedroom in the hallway between the lounge and the bathroom was an accident waiting to happen for me a step down I found it no problem at all managed without breaking anything although well shook up by this. Then we noticed a door from the bedroom on to balcony this would be lovely until you saw the size 6 ft by 6ft with a round table and 2 chairs the step down is quite deep and then another step on to the decking but the decking is the same as the step so my husband had to see me out . On the Sunday we went to B&Q and bought a rug so I could tell the difference. There is a set of concrete steps which lead off this balcony in case of fire the stair top is 3inches from the chair leg if you move backwards you WILL go down the steps probably to your death and if you are like me and can't see I was then banned from going out on my own. The bathroom could do with a shower door which remains closed when you are in it as the floor ends up looking like the Thames and a toilet tool holder would be preferable to twisting round and holding it. Outside the parking is a joke if you are lucky you can get a spot on the road we came back 2or 3 times and there was nowhere to park . But I do have to say the apartment is nicely furnished and the view is fantastic but never again for me and hubbie.

Highly recommended short break for a family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Booked a last minute short break as we had to cancel holiday abroad.

First time here and have to say it has been a great experience for us all. Apartment was large enough to accommodate 2 wife and three very active kids. All the mod cons you can expect. Very clean throughout. Almost a luxurious hotel room except for the room service...definitely better than a hotel...almost felt like our own holiday apartment.

Apartment location was perfect as we could watch the kids at the beach from the room. Walking distance from great bars and restaurants.

Will definitely be back next year for a longer break.

A very good location, but not the appartment

  • 3 of 5

The appartement no. 12 is very good located with an excellent view to the bay. The appartment was very dirty, we had to clean all the kitchen dishes before using it. The floor carpet ist very old and awful also the bathroom and other things. It is'nt looking as the fotos on website, so we didn't feel well. It is not in the condition to let.

Astor House Torquay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely view and a comfortable apartment. We enjoyed using the terrace. The housekeeper was around every day so we could ask her if we had any queries. It's a bit of a climb to the apartment if you're on foot, but ok as long as you're reasonably fit. There were lots of interesting places to visit in the area.
