Q. If I arrive early can I use the car park?

A. If there are any spaces after 10.30am then you are very welcome to park your car in the car park. If there aren’t any spaces it simply means that the departing guests are staying on for breakfast or have decided to spend the morning/day in Teignmouth (this can happen when the weather is particularly good). We ask departing guests to vacate the car park by 3pm though ready for the new arrivals.

Q. Are there any games or books available for children?

There are also adult books which guests swap when they are finished with their own etc so please help yourself!

Q. What should I do if I need urgent/medical/dental assistance?

A. There is a detailed Guest Manual which will give you all the information you need.

Q. Can I request a grocery delivery for my arrival day?

Please note that Riviera Apartments are self-catering and we cannot guarantee that a cleaner will be available.

Q. Do I need to clean the apartment upon departure?

A. There is no need to clean the apartment on your departure but we do ask guests to leave it in a tidy condition. We respectfully request that all towels are placed in either the shower tray or the bath and that guests do not leave dirty dishes for the cleaners to wash.

Q. If we have not previously requested it but decide upon arrival that we would like to use the sofa bed where can we get the extra linen?

Q. Do you provide towels?

A. We provide one bath towel, one hand towel and one beach towel per person.

Q. What is the postcode for my SatNav?

A. The postcode is TQ14 8BD. Please note that some SatNav systems tend to take people a couple of hundred yards down the road so when entering Teignmouth it is preferable to follow the written directions supplied with your arrival email.

A. Yes. The password will be in your apartment upon arrival.

Q. Can I use a barbeque on the balconies?

A. Everything is included. There are no hidden charges.

About Emma

My name is Emma and I manage Riviera Apartments.

I have worked in the leisure/hospitality industry my entire life both at home and abroad.

I am available throughout your stay.

Emma purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Emma chose Teignbridge

For families there is much to do. On the seafront itself there is a new play area with splash zone, pyramid climbing ropes and private ships/swings. There is also a mini skateboard park and bungee trampolines in the summer season. In addition on Teignmouth seafront you will also find Crazy Golf, a tennis court and a large green for Frisbee or ball games.

For some evening relaxation there are many restaurants and bars along the seafront and on Teignmouth back beach you will find traditional pubs with live music nights so you can relax on the beach and enjoy the sunset. There are also many individual shops and boutiques should you wish to do some souvenir shopping.

The Beaches at Teignmouth and Shaldon are truly wonderful places to visit. Teignmouth boasts a front beach, where you can often see surfers in the early mornings catching a few waves, this beach is lifeguard patrolled in high season. The Back Beach is a really fascinating place to walk along, watch the fishing boats land their catch and go over to Shaldon on the passenger ferry. A great place for a spot of crabbing too.

The promenade at Teignmouth has much to offer. There is a wonderful play park for children complete with splash zone and a new skate park which has been designed especially for the under 14s. There are also tennis courts and crazy golf. The green in front of the apartments is perfect for a kick around or even a game of rounder’s!

Take a trip over the ferry to Shaldon and you can wander around the quaint streets with local gift shops, cafes and restaurants. The beach, is perfect for relaxing on while you watch the boats come and go – wait until the tide goes out and go on a treasure hunt amongst the rock pools where you can find the biggest shells.

One of Shaldon’s best kept secrets is Smugglers Tunnel which leads to the Ness Beach. The Tunnel, originally used by smugglers leads to a lovely sandy beach.

What makes this apartment unique

We have really good views, not the kind of views where you need to stand on a chair in the corner to see the sea we mean a proper sea view. One of the best compliments we receive most often is that the views are even better than our photographs. We are certain you won't be disappointed!

Guestbook comments from the owner

56 Reviews and a 5 Star rating on Tripadvisor:

My wife and I stayed in Penthouse Apartment 2 at the middle of March. We found the apartment as described on Tripadvisor, a luxury apartment with the most amazing views from every room.

This is a large two bedroom apartment with great views through large floor to ceiling glass of the town and sea front from the bedroom and large lounge/ dining rooms. The kitchen has everything that you would need and has a very well kitted out kitchen; high end cooking appliances, pots, pans cutlery, etc.

It is a very easy walk into town and along the harbour from the apartment, so leave your car in the car park. There is a large Morrisons supermarket as you come into town and a Co-op and Waitrose within the town

My wife and I have in the past travelled a lot for business and have stayed in many apartments and hotels around the world and we will without doubt return to this one. It was much bigger than we were expecting
