As you walk in you just know this property is more than can be described on any holiday website.
The views are stunning, feels like there is nothing between you and the sea scape across the bay.
The quality of decor is top notch.
The added touches of preloaded music and movies should cater for those cooler nights when with glass in hand you watch the world, and boats, go by.
For us the owner was pleasant and wished us a safe journey home.
I would return in the future without a second thought.
To the owner a great job at making a holiday home so much more.

This is not an apartment in that it is over 3 floors - upside down style with hall , large kitchen diner and huge lounge with vast picture window offering stunning views over Torbay , master en-suite on floor below and another en-suite floor below that with large furnished sun terrace.

All gleaming and spotlessly clean with high quality seriously comfortable furniture throughout.

A gem in Torquay and one of the best finds in our 30 years of self-catering in South Devon

“Fan Blinking Tastic”

We are a family of 4 (2 boys aged 12 and 15). We stayed in Riviera Mansion, The Mews for a week in February 2015. We booked via Bluechip Holidays and chose this apartment based on the Bluechip Holidays photos, description and reviews of the property.

Wow were we pleased. Quality fittings throughout, maintained to a very high standard, fantastic attention to detail and colour coordination, clean, contemporary, comfortable and stylish with fantastic views - from Torquay marina to Torquay beach and around Torbay, past Paignton, to Brixham and beyond. About a 20 minute walk to the marina, harbour and all the restaurants and shops of Torquay - 10 minutes to Torquay beach.

Particularly loved the view especially the sunsets; the LED mood lighting, Jacuzzi bath (with LED lighting), shower head (with heat sensitive LED lighting)...I could go on, but it would spoil some of the surprise for new visitors ;o) A fantastic property.

“In my view; simply Excellent”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

I booked this as a surprise for my family and when they entered the lounge their reaction was incredible; breath-taking and unbelievable. Enough said!

The property is well located in Torquay; easy to access by road; private parking and within walking distance to both Torquay beach (and the new restaurants and bars there) and also the shopping centre in Union square. The consequence of a view is that you are on a hill and therefore the walk will include steps/steep roads but now the Rock Walk is open make it part of your healthy holiday!

The apartment itself is well above what you might expect on the holiday rental market; the fixtures and fittings are very high spec; the furnishings are very high quality and the little features that are well documented in the earlier reviews are very welcome and ensure a luxury feel to what ever you do.

We stayed in quite a lot and just watched the view!

I had no problems at all with communication with the owner; the property was clean on arrival and everything functioned as I hoped during my stay. I even managed to get the coffee maker to produce some coffee automatically in the morning; extra points from my wife!!

Enjoy.

“Exceeded Expectations - simply a wonderful holiday experience”

Having read a previous review on The Apartment, part of the same complex and management, we felt compelled to write our experience on The Mews which was in complete contrast to the other guest.
Riviera Mansions, was a positive and memorable experience in every way. The ease of booking, clear description of property and travel directions ensured the holiday got off to the right start. Accessing the apartment through a secure key safe meant our holiday began independently rather than waiting for someone to let you in. However the courteous visit from the owner the following day to check everything was OK, reassured us that someone was close at hand if we needed anything.
The interior of the property exceeded our high expectations of contemporary luxury. The photos on the website were a true representation of the apartment which was finished to the highest standard, complimented with lots of attention to detail (mood lighting, Jacuzzi bath, walk in wardrobe, extensive tea and coffee supply, all homely amenities were included, a library of films to watch and books on the local areas. From the TV to the oven, the Mews was of a high spec, even the items were colour coordinated - little touches which just added to our memorable experience of the holiday.
The position of the property is located in a centrally with stunning views and close access to the town centre and harbour. On departure day the courtesy of the cleaners who waited outside until we had left, added to our overall delight with this holiday experience. We will certainly be returning and would strongly recommend this property to other travellers.

“Absolutely loved it !!!”

"Riviera Mews"----amazing accommodation, we were overwhelmed by everything !! On entering , the view absolutely 'took our breath away', the furnishings were of top quality and every amienty had been thought through, and most important everything was spotlessly clean---most important ! We much prefer self-catering holidays (more freedom), "Riviera Mews" was most definitely the BEST we had ever stayed in. We had to contact the owner for help to use the very modern cooker hob ( it was our fault ), Mr. Chilvers went out of his way to make sure the problem was solved, in fact he went the 'extra mile' to ensure that nothing would spoil our week and made us feel "special" ! Also being able to park our car safely in our own private space was really appreciated. We left reluctantly-----we had lived like royalty for the week and now back to reality----a holiday we will NEVER forget. We can thoroughly recommend "Riviera Mews" and can assure anyone that you will have the perfect landlord, a real gentleman.

“Amazing apartment with stunning views”

Stayed for a short break in March 2014 and from the moment we walked in to see the amazing views from every floor, we were wowed. From the state of the art kitchen, the spacious bedrooms and all the beautiful little touches, our weekend was perfect. The apartment was spotlessly clean and decorated to a very high standard. We did find the Internet connection temperamental, but Graham kindly offered us his personal laptop to use during our stay. Would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone and will definitely be going back.
