“Great value for money!!!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

This was my first stay at Appletorre House Holiday Flats, is set in a superb location that is very quiet, relaxing and only a short walk to the sea front / local amenities and is great value for money. The owners was found to be very pleasant and always eager to help, My partner and i stayed in room 9 from Sunday 21st of July until Sunday the 28th. Would recommend anyone to stay here and no doubt i will be returning next year!! Looking forward to it already massive thank you to the owners!

Appletorre is a traditional rental. We stayed in apartment 3 for 4 nights from 8th July. The room offered a studio type accomodation. It was spotlessly clean. Spacious and had a great kitchen area for self catering. A comfortable 10 - 15 minute walk to the seafront . Great local bus service right round the conrner. No. 12 took you there and back in a few minutes. Best bit about the stay was the friendly service. Have never stayed anywhere that I felt so comfortable. Landlady is an absolute gem. What Appletorre may lack in plush decor and furnishings is no loss when you get such great service. Will definitely use again.

Room Tip: Only saaw this room. For me it was important not to have many stairs and there were a number to cho...

Hi, thanks for the lovely review although my husband seems to think that when referring to me as a gem you mean the lettuce rather than the jewel! Compared to other self catering that are above us on tripadvisor we cannot supply the swimming pool or the sea view but we are near to all these things and hope that we are good value for money. Even meeting my husband does not seem to put you off coming again. Amazing! Its warmer down here than in Scotland nearly all of the year, so plenty of choice of dates, Best Wishes from one of the gems in Torquay's crown

Our recent stay at the Appletorre flats offered a great place to relax and view the surrounding areas - the owners were also helpful and always available for advise - the room was comfortable and functional - we would definitely recommend a stay here for those visiting Torbay

My wife and I stayed at Appletorre again a couple of weeks ago; in fact we've stayed there several times since our first visit back in 1999. It has always been a lovely place to stay and this time was no exception. Flat 9 is our favourite and as usual it was scrupulously clean on arrival. The owners, Colleen and Colin are genuinely warm and friendly and have always been there to help when needed with enquiries about events in the area etc. The location is just a few minutes walk from both the seafront and from shops so its ideal for both. Wi-Fi and phone signal worked fine and room had new TV and DVD . Lots of room for parking too.
We had a wonderful stay and we'll be back again !!!

Room Tip: Flat 9 is secluded, quiet and very private.

Hi, thanks for the review, I am amazed that everyone is always threatening to come back to us again, I assume we must be getting some things right. We do try to improve our flats continually as we feel it makes a difference although one year we put kitchen units and new carpets and all the regular customer noticed was that we had changed the toilet seat any way, hope to see you soon, Best Wishes from The Cols

We have been staying at Appletorre every year since 2005 (except once in 2007) and we always come back every year. Coleen is always friendly and helpful and the the location has always been ideal for us with just a short walk to the sea front, Rooms have always been clean and tidy and there is always plenty of parking space. We come to Torquay every year and we always stay here, and we would recommend Appletorre to anyone.

My husband and I and our teenage son have stayed here on two occassions, October 2012 and October 2011, both were short stays of 3 nights, main purpose of our mini-breaks are to visit family living in Torbay. Our first stay was in flat 7 and the second was flat 5. Since discovering Appletorre, it is always our first preference when looking for somewhere to stay. We have always found the apartments clean, well equipped and warm enough. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Good sized car park. Upon arrival there is already money in the electric meter and hot water and also sugar, tea and coffee like you get in a hotel room, very thoughtful and much appreciated, thanks Colleen! Location is perfect, it's in a quiet road yet within 10 to 15 minutes walk there is Torquay shopping centre, take-aways, restaurants and sea front. We always enjoy our stay at Appletorre.

Room Tip: If bringing a baby then flat 5 has more space for a cot than flat 7. Flat 7 had better wi fi signal...

Thank you for your review it was a surprise for it to suddenly appear and the very good pictures you added as well. You are right that there is more space in Flat 5 for a cot but since you were in Flat 5 the area where the w ifi works from is in the flats rather than from my house as it was originally so the signal should be better in all the flats. The exception to this is Flat 1 which still causes a problem to some laptops as we have such thick walls as it was made by the Victorians who knew how to build a decent wall. Anyway the weather is lovely, come down for May Bank holiday and see it in a different season and surprise your family! Best Wishes from the both of us Colin and Colleen

We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our honeymoon. Coleen was very friendly & helpful the room was clean and equipped with everything we needed, including free wi-fi. We were very sad that we had to cut our stay short by one night due to work. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay

Thank you for your review, I was not expecting one but I am pleased that you have spared the time and hope that if you come to Torquay again you do not get called back to work. In fact leave your phone at home then you can enjoy your stay without interruption. Hope to see you another time, have a happy marriage and hope your flowers survived the journey.Thanks for choosing us Colin and Colleen
