quiet apartment with sea view

Hi, looking to visit torquay next May along with my wife ( both in our fifties). We would like to stay in an apartment with balcony and sea view. Very importantly we also like peace and quiet when at our base.Any suggestions would be most welcome as I have seen so many lovely apartments eg. astor house,masts,bay fort mansion,hesketh crescent to name a few.

I feel Hesketh crescent will be peaceful but concerned may be a little remote from restaurants etc.

Also, really love the view over the harbour offered by the others but dont know if this would come with a higher risk of noise disturbance.

Any thoughts from anyone with experience or local knowledge would be appreciated

kind regards

Hesketh Crescent would indeed be peaceful and you would have the beautiful setting of Meadfoot Beach on your doorstep. Town would be a mile away and would involve hills, however you might be able to get dinner in one of the restaurants nearby. A taxi into town would be about £5 each way.

Places such as Masts and Astor House have great elevated views across Torbay. I am not sure how noise from the Harbour area would carry up there but you might be sufficiently far round for it not to be a nuisance. Also you still have an uphill climb at the end of an evening out - or again a taxi would be less than £5.

Hi Wirewiper, thanks for your reply. Very tempted by Riviera Mansions which has fabulous views from its elevated position and appears to be closer to a choice of restaurants. There doesnt appear to be any restaurants close by Hesketh Crescent apart from the hotel restaurant itself. As we may visit in low season it may be advantageous to be closer to restaurants in case of bad weather.

kind regards

GIB3366, you might want to remove your own reviews of Riviera Mansion since you own the property. And don't be surprised if your forum post is also removed for advertising / solicitation.
