About the Owner

Born just up the road from Torquay in Somerset, Sorrento is my bolt hole back in the West Country and I do try and enjoy it when I get the opportunity. Having left the area in 1996 to join the Royal Air Force I have since settled in leafy Hertfordshire, whilst working in London. Prior to working in London I sailed the seven seas on cruise liners for a few years so it is always great to get back down to the coast and escape the daily commute!

I would like to think that Sorrento will provide you with a ‘home from home’ experience and be a homely base for couples and families to enjoy the many delights of Torbay and surrounding areas (I do suggest you get over to Dartmoor as well).

Being in the hospitality industry guest satisfaction is extremely important to me and so welcome any feedback.

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.

Lovely apartment, very impressed

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment - it is really spacious, bright and open, very nicely decorated and everything you could possibly need for a great stay. If anything I would say that it is even nicer than the photos as you don't get a true picture of how lovely and spacious it feels. It is fantastic value for money (especially as we stayed during school holidays, usually a nightmare for ramped up prices). Impeccably clean too, and set in a lovely garden which the very friendly neighbours were tending to constantly while we were there.

The location is great - close to everything, with a short cut down to the harbour or beach if you don't mind a few steps but not much of a walk down the hill if you've got a pushchair either. Of course, Torquay doesn't need much of an introduction but if you're visiting with children I recommend you check out the activities at the Seashore Centre at nearby Goodrington as we really enjoyed those.

I definitely recommend this apartment - the owner Gregg is very friendly and helpful too.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The main Torquay beach is just a 15 minute walk away whilst other Torbay beaches can be accessed easily by either car or local transport.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
