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.

The Astor House apartments offer contemporary comfort and sumptuous style overlooking the most stunning uninterrupted sea views.

views brilliant, apartment bit dusty - be warned of hidden/extra charges!

  • 3 of 5

We were going to use the spare duvet in the wardrobe to snuggle on the sofa until we saw that it was covered in all manner of stains. Yuk! This and a bit of dust around the apartment wasn't great but the wonderful views helped to forgive these. The thing we were most unhappy about was the transparency of fees, or lack of. Found property via homeaway but actually they were representing plum holidays. Both companies charged us additional fees (plum a 'processing fee' & homeaway a 'service fee'). Both companies sent invoices upon booking but neither gave absolute totals so as customer it was very confusing and then amounted to us being charged Almost 10% extra than what we thought we were paying. Had we known we would not have booked because the apartment was not worth it. Better to book direct with plum holidays. Further, when attempting to get to the bottom of all the additional charges, one company kept sending us to the other, neither taking responsibility so we are the ones out of pocket as nothing got resolved and so would never book with homeaway ever ever again.

Owner's Response: We are sorry about the apparent confusion with Homeaway but Plum Holidays charges no fees. We do encourage guests to raise any issues that they may find so that they can be corrected as quickly as possible.

A good spot

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and view. Nice flat well furnished. Better guidance on finding (unnumbered) house on long road on which it is difficult to stop would be useful

Beautiful Apartment with a Spectacular View

  • 4 of 5

Apartment 6 is beautiful. It is fully equipped with everything you could need and was spotlessly clean. The only issue we had was actually getting into the apartment when we first arrived. We were supposed to have received a code for the front door and a code to access the keybox, but we didn't and I didn't read the reservation details carefully enough to realise this. We ended up waiting in the foyer for an hour, waiting for Plumlocations customer service to call us back. In the end a kind neighbor took pity on us and called the property manager on her personal phone to get the code for us. Lesson learned for us and advise for any future renters - make sure you have the codes BEFORE you arrive!

It is a fairly steep walk to get into town, so probably not ideal for anyone with disabilities, but taxis are cheap and plentiful in Torquay. Also close street parking isn't great, or guaranteed if you have a car, but there is a public car park about a 5 minute walk away.

Overall a wonderful apartment that I would totally recommend for the view alone!!

updating needed

  • 3 of 5

A pleasant apartment with a very good view. It was clean and well laid out. Appliances functioned well.

However, some things need improvement.?

All the window blinds are broken and can only be raised or lowered.

More cutlery and plates are needed as well as oven mitts and other minor items.

A fitted sheet on the main bedroom mattress is required as well as an additional sheet for when the duvet would be too hot.

Women will find no well lit dressing table. The clothes closet door needs adjustment. No clothes storage in second bedroom. Decent hangers would be nice.

The parking is quite inadequate, the assigned bays are not marked. The key provided did not fit any lock. Furture renters should be warned that parking is only suitable for very small cars. Parking should be assigned but free.

Most holiday rental places provide at least some milk,bread, etc for new arrivals..
