We spent a week at The Salty Dog and I have to say that it's one of the best apartments we've stayed in on our holidays (we've stayed in quite a few). The view from the living room is great, and is only bettered by the spectacular view you get from the wide windows in the bedroom. Upon arrival Kate and John had put together a great welcome pack of treats and information, which catered for us adults and our little boy, this was such a nice touch and not something I've experienced anywhere else.
The apartment is lovely, well decorated, light and spacious and is set up over two levels. The kitchen has everything you need and we utilised it for breakfast (everyday), lunch and dinner (some days). The bedrooms are a great size, one double and one twin and the beds are very comfortable.
There are also some creative touches in the apartment that give it a nautical theme, which goes perfectly with the view over the harbour and the beautiful bay.
If you are planning a trip to Torquay, check out The Salty Dog, I can promise that you will receive a great welcome and have a wonderful stay! If I could give more than a 5 I would!
Stunning views! The property is just beautiful and has clearly had a lot of thought put into it. Every detail has been thought of.
We arrived to a basket full of goodies which was much appreciated after a very late check in.
John was very friendly and approachable. Would definitely stay again!
My husband & I and our 2 girls decided on a last minute holiday to Torquay, we booked the day before our holiday started but this wasn't a problem at all. We were privileged to be the first people to stay in this amazing apartment.
We were greeted with a very warm welcome and a basket full of delicious treats.
The Salty Dog is an outstanding apartment, the views are spectacular! The whole house has been beautifully decorated and furnished and there are many carefully created craft items. The apartment is very spacious and quiet, I loved the open plan kitchen, dining, lounge area which led onto the wonderful balcony. We all felt very relaxed and at home, the beds were very comfortable, the towels were soft, the house was spotlessly clean and the kitchen was well equipped. There were books, dvds, puzzles, cards, even a colouring book and pens, there was nothing that we could of wished for to make our holiday more complete.
Having breakfast on the balcony was a real treat, followed by a walk to the beach to explore the rock pools. We enjoyed a game of crazy golf in the park also a walk to Kents Cavern where we had a guided tour and a cream tea. For those who aren't so keen on the beach there are lots of shops very close by and also a cinema which we visited. The theatre is directly below the apartment and is a nice treat if there is something you want to see. We parked in Warren Road just along from The Salty Dog, we didn't need the car all week. Torquay is a great holiday destination with plenty of things to do to keep the whole family happy.
I highly recommend The Salty Dog, it is a superb apartment with breathtaking views and you definitely won't want to leave! We hope to return very soon :)
