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.
No 6 is a first floor two bed apartment with floor to ceiling door/windows leading to balcony and stunning sea views. There is a lounge, open plan well equipped kitchen, double bedroom, twin bedroom and fully tiled bathroom with bath/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
A fully equipped kitchen including a microwave and washer/dryer or dishwasher
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

Highly recommend this apartment. Gorgeous views. Great location with restaurants close by within walking distance.
fantastic view - fully equiped (TV,DVD-player,PS4,washing machine,DAB radio,good books and DVDs and much more) - clean - comfortable - easy access to beach promenade and city center via rock walk (only stairs have to be tackled) - unrestricted parking on the street (few free places in the morning, free places in the afternoon)
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
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!!
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..
Breathtaking views and accommodation lovely on arrival, cold tap on sink didn't work - reported this day after we arrived as didn't want to disturb on a bank holiday, not fixed during our stay although this wasn't a huge problem. Main issue was arrival of scaffolders first thing in the morning who then spent the day noisily erecting it around our balcony. As our son is mid GCSE's and they idea was to revise quietly somewhere different this was a nightmare, and we had to go out for the day - this would not have been such a problem if we had been warned in advance this was going to happen - a really disappointing end to our stay as view from balcony also completely spoilt for final evening/morning of our visit.
