The apartment lives up to its billing in every respect. Views just as spectacular as the pictures suggest, and we found it to be extremely comfortable, clean and well presented.

“our favourite apt in torquay.”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

we have stayed in Torquay twice a year since 1971. we have stayed in some great apts .Riviera Mansion is our favourite, we have stayed there for the last two years .Its got everything you could wish for its private, modern ,excellent facilities ,spotless, with outstanding views from the large balcony. There is an uphill climb from the town but its well worth it for the views. The owner met us the first day and we found him very professional

“Excellent Accommodation - Highly Recommended”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We booked this property as a family group over the Easter period in 2014 and were immediately taken by its secluded location and the breath-taking views across the bay and to Brixham in the distance. The property was beautifully furnished and very thoughtfully equipped. The leaflets giving details of local attractions and restaurants were very helpful and put to good use!

We found the location of the property to be ideal for our purposes, offering terrific unspoiled views of the beaches from a virtually unseen vantage point. Access to the centre of Torquay can easily be gained by road, or for those seeking a bracing return journey, on foot.

The pricing point of this property is no doubt higher than some on the market, however we were unanimously of the view that this was the most enjoyable and best value short stay we’ve ever taken. Consequently, we’ve already booked to take the property for the Easter week in 2015.

In our case there was little need for communication with the owner, but on the few occasions this was necessary discussions were always very straightforward and courteous. Also, and unlike some other properties we’ve taken, we never felt as if we were under surveillance for the first couple days.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a stay in Torquay as it has all the amenities and mod cons we all become so used to, but is ideally located for visit the attractions of Torquay and the surrounding area.

“Amazing every think was wonderful”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We spent two separate weeks in riviera Mansion last year,and could not fault anything,warm welcome by the owner who was very pleasant throughout the holidays. We have stayed in several apartments on Warren road but this we think was definitely the best and are returning again this coming year 2015. The Apartment was very comfortable and very clean, location is great and views are amazing,

“Absolutely Perfect!”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at this apartment in June 2014. It was by far the best apartment we had ever stayed in. The décor was modern and of the highest quality. it was spotlessly clean and every tiny detail had been attended to. The views from the balcony were stupendous!! The photos of this view have been my screen saver since returning. The location was ideal. A walk into Torquay every evening finished off what had had been a beautiful week. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. He showed us around his current renovations and they will be of a similar exceptional standard.

“a luxury apartment”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed here for 5 nights in april & thoroughly enjoyed it. Apartment was beautifully equipped, the master bedroom stunning & my mother was thrilled with her bedroom. Obviously the views are spectacular, sitting on the swing with a glass of wine was the highlight of the day. We were pre notified of the building work & the builders were very unobtrusive. No trouble parking in the allocated bay. We visit torquay every year to see family & would definitely use it again.

“stay away”
Reviewed December 19, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

I stayed at this property as a guest

Cold and dark property, with poor lighting & plastic plants and the smell of damp as this is classed as a basement flat.

Good size property filled with dirty faulty old & worn sofas, cheep leather style plastic dining chairs and wobbly glass table.

1960s bed side tables, dusty wood effect floor and en-suite with faulty lights.

Stunning view over sea & torquay with the air filled of dust from workmen busy banging away next door.

Faulty Wi-Fi & 1990s T.V

Very small patio with unsafe rusty swinging stained seat.

Rude owner, rude management.

My advice is simple, stay away.
