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.
This cosy second floor town facing apartment for singles or couples has everything close to hand, with a comfortable lounge that’s open to a bright, functional kitchen area. Sleep soundly in a relaxing small double bedroom and wash off a day at the beach in a fully tiled shower room.
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.

Appartments 1A is a very small attic with steep stairs leading up to the room. The small double bed completely filled the bedroom leaving no space for any drawers or dressing table. The window was floor level with the curtain hanging off the rail.
The living area had a small settee, table and a TV set on a vert low table making viewing uncomfortable. The room was varm and stuffy. The only was to control the temperature was to open the window which involved moving the table and using the piece of wood provided to prop the window open. The only view was onto the street.
We chose Astor House from the description on the website which had lovely views from a patio area. Appartment 1A does not have this which vas extremely disappointing
In the centre of Torquay we had a pleasant stay at Astor House. The apartment was comfortable, peacefully quiet and easy to reach. Though we missed the seaview being at the back of the house, we loved the 'cottagefeel' of the apartment.
Myself and my partner enjoyed our short stay at Astor House. It was only a 10 minute walk to the beach. The apartment itself was very clean and had everything in it that we needed. Very happy and would stay again.
This apartment is much, much smaller than expected! The bedroom is only just big enough for the bed. It is also right at the top of the house i.e. There are a lot of stairs to climb - this was not made clear. The shower was broken. The part that holds the shower head would not slide to the top so either had to hold the shower head or crouch down! Finally, there is no milk in the house when you arrive so unless you want to drink black tea, the amenities are not available for a cuppa - as promised.
We payed 150.00 per night to have a view of a over grown allotment that hasn't being worked for years. No balcony .aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
