About the property

1a Astor House - cosy one bedroom sleeps 2

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.

Very small accommodation in an attic with steep stairs leading up to the room.

  • 2 of 5

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

Owner's Response: We are very sorry this apartment wasnt up to expectations. It is our smallest and cheapest place to stay but is obviously not as big and doesnt have a sea view as most of the others as described on the website. We are sorry about the window/curtain problems and will deal with this asap.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

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.

Our short stay at Astor House

  • 4 of 5

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.

Tiny bedroom, broken shower

  • 3 of 5

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.
