Centrally heated throughout, Sorrento provides the perfect excuse for a year-round escape.

The delightful master bedroom offers a new (Nov 2016) King size bed with orthopaedic mattress, wardrobes, bedside cabinets and with an attached large modern en-suite comprising of a double size shower, WC and wash basin.

The second bedroom can be fitted out to the guest specification, either being a kingsize bed or two single beds.

Why Greg chose Torbay

Sorento works for me as it is easily accessible and once there is quiet and relaxing, yet just a short walk into the bustling harbour front.

Being a big fan of Dartmoor it is also just a short drive away as well.

I find the location is the best of all worlds and try and get down to Sorrento for that slice of of peace and quiet.

What makes this apartment unique

Sorrento is ideally situated just a short walk from the harbour front where you find a range of shops, restaurants and bars.

Torquay itself is a great location, nestled within the heart of the English Riveria and also, just down the road from Dartmoor which I would suggest should be explored.

Spacious, clean and well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the end of April in this apartment and can thoroughly recommend it as a wonderful base from which to explore the Torquay area. Not only is the lounge an inviting space to relax in, the bed was one of the most comfortable we have experienced. We both slept very well. This was our first visit to Torquay in many years and will definitely re-book this apartment when we decide to come again. We will also be recommending it to friends

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. My aim is to provide a home from home experience and make my guests happy and comfortable. I have recently purchased the new bed which I agree, really is comfortable. I have also recently upgraded the beds in the second bedroom. One thing I like is that my apartment is central to the town, yet tucked away and is a good base to explore south Devon and Dartmoor. Thank you once again for your lovely review. Kind regards Gregg

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments and we would welcome you back anytime. Since your stay I have upgraded the bed in the master bedroom to a kingsize with a very comfortable mattress. I will also be doing some more bit and pieces in the New Year to ensure my apartment maintains such great reviews. Kind regards Gregg

The apartment was clean but the beds do need upgrading

  • 3 of 5

The beds need upgrading and the 2 single beds only really suitable for children. The fuse box is situated in a dangerous place, when the lights fused it meant climbing onto the kitchen worktop to reset, I am sure a set of steps would be appreciated to help with this procedure. A welcome pack would be useful, with nearest supermarket, doctors and eating places etc. The kettle lid is broken and needs replacing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The two single beds are under a year old and are both standard singles. They are hotel style beds with the mattresses properly zipping together and when done so make a king size bed. The apartment is an old Georgian building and the fuse box is a modern style circuit breaker type. Unfortunately I have no control over where this is situated although it is accessible if required. In the drawer in the lounge are many leaflets for the area although I take on board regarding the doctors surgeries etc and will include this in future. Safety is a priority and the kettle has been replaced. Kind regards Gregg

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spacious property, clean and with all the facilities you would expect to find. We had a small issue which was soon rectified by the owner providing the necessary instructions. Located at the top of a hill so you need to be fit or have a car. Lots to see and do in Torquay and the surrounding area and good public transport. Would be happy to return at some future date.
