views brilliant, apartment bit dusty - be warned of hidden/extra charges!
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.
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.
Highly recommend this apartment. Gorgeous views. Great location with restaurants close by within walking distance.
Perfect stay at Astor House
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)
A good spot
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
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..
