Refreshingly quiet, as the flats are so near the ring road, & after such a bad experience at a local guest house, Appletorre were able to give us a room for the remaining 3 nights. We even saved some money as Appletorre was cheaper than the appalling place we had been in! Self catering meant we ate when, & what... More

Thank you very much for posting a review it was very good of you to spare the time. The flat you used and Flat 1 have room for up to 3 people although I must admit the wi-fi signal is not quite as good for your daughter to play her games in the other flat. Thank you for leaving the... More

Stayed at Appletorre for 3 nights weekend of 6th Sept. This was our 1st break with our child so we were really looking forward to the weekend. It was the 1st time we'd stayed in any kind of holiday apartments as on this occasion we needed 2 rooms (one for us and one for the child). We arrived earlier than... More

Thank you very much for your review I am sorry about the smell of smoke, the people who were in just before you did not smoke, but they did complain to another person staying, who smoked outside but quite close to the open bathroom window so maybe he had done that again after they had left.

We have stayed in 3 different flats and have visited several times over the years. We have Always received a friendly welcome. The flats have always been clean and every stay has been quiet. The free parking is an added bonus too, as it's not far to walk into the main area of Torquay from the accommodation and therefore saving... More

We stayed in Flat 6 (sleeps 2). All the requisites for 2 people except towels (available for a fee) and food were provided, I noted that the dishcloth and sponge were new, a nice point. Although the weather was a bit cold the main room was comfortable with the provided electric heater, the electricity meter under the sink (torch provided... More

We found Appletorre House on Trip Advisor while we searched for a last minute holiday location.  As it had good reviews we decided to give the flats a go and so booked flat 6.  We arrived after a grueling 6-hour journey and so were pleased to be met by a pleasant and very helpful Colleen who welcomed us, showed us...

Thank you for the review and hope that you do visit us again although if you count our hill as a bit of an effort I think most of the others around are more of an adventure than ours, Torquay is on seven hills, that's why there are some lovely views as well. I hope we will meet some of... More

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... More

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... More
