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.

It's ok...but here's what you need to know

  • 4 of 5

1. The location is great for the harbour and the views are stunning, but unless that's all you're going for, there's not a ton to do in Torquay proper. Be prepared to drive around/travel if you're going for a few days. We took the ferry to Brixham for a change of scenery.

2. Parking isn't brilliant. When we arrived (an hour before 3) we opened the key safe and there was a key for a parking bay included. However, someone (who didn't identify herself) happened upon us and took the keys saying the apartment hadn't been serviced yet. She told us free parking was on the street. When we returned, the parking bay key was no longer in the safe.

3. The kitchen has most of what you need, but bring your own tea, coffee, and milk, even if you won't be completely self-catering. I may be a tea/coffee snob, so take that as you will. Quality just wasn't brilliant.

4. The bed is on the hard side, which was ok for us, but not everyone would sleep well on it. Also, I recommend bringing your own pillows. The ones provided are hard and flat.

Overall, it's a nice apartment: clean, though getting to be a bit 'well loved' (the photos on most websites reflect a new apartment, I believe) I wouldn't call it five-star digs, but if you want a location convenient to the Torquay harbour and nice views, this is your place.

A lovely property

  • 4 of 5

No.10 is a property with amazing views. Walls are looking a little tired and the bathroom a little dated. We would of liked a few more cleaning products for kitchen. Was hard to clean the cooker. The property was extremely clean.New batteries will be required for TV remote control. The presseco left for us was a lovely gesture and we will recommend it

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.
