    Slight problem with road noise at night but closed bedroom window and opened lounge windows, problem solved. Weather superb the whole week, an outside area to relax with a drink would have been nice however this would not stop us rebooking in the future. Apartment is a credit to owners.

  • "It's a fabulous apartment, well prepared with every comfort and facilities provided."

    We wanted for nothing. We have deducted one star from our overall stay since, unaccustomed as we are to any passing traffic and in spite of the double glazing, the relentless traffic noise during the night spoiled a peaceful and restful night. On this point alone we regret that a return visit would be impossible.

    Thank you for your comments following your recent stay at Apartment 18. We do aim to provide everything to make your stay comfortable and having many returning guests shows us we are providing an excellent service, of which we are very proud. We are sorry that you do not feel able to consider a return visit. The apartment is located in the town centre which enables visitors to easily walk to the train station or bus stop if they don't wish to travel by car and is a quick level walk into town for the evening. A town centre location may not be suitable for every guest's needs. However, previous reviews and guest comments do show that the apartment is in an excellent location to enjoy the many attractions of South Devon. Property Owner

    Great location for visiting all of the nearby holiday spots, whilst Newton Abbot itself is a charming town. A lovely apartment to come home to each day with every comfort catered for. The ensuite is a good size with a big shower unit. The bed was extremely comfortable. A lovely bountiful welcome pack had been left & the owners were very kind & helpful. Definitely a place to stay at again.

    Convenient for supermarkets and places to eat. Although we didnt use the train the station very close by,had we stayed longer we would have tried the train. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable and had everything we needed. It was also very clean and well maintained. Sally and Steve were great hosts and communicated well with us prior to our stay. Thankfully we didn't have any issues during our stay but felt reassured that Sally and Steve were on hand if needed. The welcome pack of friut and biscuits was much appreciated. We would gladly return again if in the area.

  • "We were a party of four, all of us in our seventies and three of us having mobility issues."

    We found the apartment very comfortable and extremely clean. It was very well equipped and there was just about everything you could possibly need. It was great having an allocated parking space considering we were so close to the centre of Newton Abbot. The location was excellent for the town and the railway station just across the road from the apartment. The hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming and the welcome pack was a nice touch. We were very unlucky in so much as the apartment was on the second floor and the lift had broken down the day before we arrived. With our mobility problems this was a bit of a pain. . . literally. However, we managed the stairs and it was clearly something our hosts had no control over. Sally met us at the check-in and helped with our luggage and Steve offered to help with the bags on our departure. They couldn't have done any more. The only other small issue was the traffic noise from the main road outside. Being on the main road we were unable to have any windows open as it was just too noisy. Having mentioned the two small issues we would quite happily return on a future break.

  • "The apartment is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and has everything you could possibly need."

    Steve and Sally were lovely and left us a welcome package of fresh fruit, biscuits and milk. The building has a lift which made light work of our luggage. The car park was an absolute bonus, as we parked the car and only used it twice during our 7 night stay. There is a bus stop and train station right on the doorstep which made travelling around really easy. We purchased a day rider ticket (for £5 each) which gives you an unlimited days travel on the buses within the Torbay area. There are several large supermarkets close by, lots of pubs, restaurants, takeaways. We highly recommend Jacksons fishmongers for fish & chips (just a couple of minutes walk from the property) and also The Coombe Cellars at Combeinteignhead (beautiful riverside location) for Sunday lunch. The apartment does have double glazing but we did find there was still a little noise from the road traffic, but not excessive enough to be an issue. All in all a perfect stay and we would highly recommend this property to anyone.

The property

Converted from the hotel formerly known as ‘The Queens Hotel’, this second-floor apartment can be found at the heart of the action of Newton Abbot in Devon.

Built in the 1850s, the hotel is thought to be one of the oldest in South Devon, adding additional charm to the now contemporary-styled dwelling.

Take the lift up onto the second floor and step inside the apartment to find a welcoming spot to spend your holiday; begin in the open-plan living space, where you will be greeted by all of the appliances and home comforts that you could need for a relaxing break.

The kitchen area oozes style in its seaside hues of blues and greens, encompassed by a range of useful appliances including a washer/dryer, a dishwasher and a large fridge/freezer, making your holiday a true breeze.

Sat within the kitchen is a extendable dining table, where you can spend your evenings together with a home-cooked treat, prepared with produce from the nearby local shops and markets on your doorstep.

Spend some time unwinding in the evening in the lounge area, where you can relax on two plush sofas settled around the 50" Smart television or sharing in family entertainment of board games or cards, perfect for a relaxing evening indoors when you’re not exploring the delights of the local area.

There are two charming bedrooms, each with a king-size bed and one with its own en-suite and the other having a shared bathroom adjacent to the room; each of these elegant rooms holds ample storage space and a soft spot to rest your head at the end of an action-packed day.

The location of the property is perfect for a wide range of attractions, positioned next to Courtenay Park, where you can enjoy a picnic with friends on a warm day, as well as making a great space for children to play.

The park also has a public bowling green, a bandstand hosting various concerts and a children's play area.

Close by is the Newton Abbot racecourse which holds frequent events for all of the family to enjoy at various times of the year, or if you would like something more relaxed then spend the day at Decoy Country Park where you can find lovely walks around the lake and watersports such as paddle boarding and canoeing.

Swimming and sports activities can be enjoyed at the local leisure centre.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside including Dartmoor National Park, Newton Abbot is a thriving historic market town, which offers cafés and restaurants, shops, supermarkets, the racecourse, post office, pubs and a cider bar.

The town centre is a three minute level walk from the property.

Venture further afield to the coastal towns of Teignmouth, Shaldon, Dawlish and Dawlish Warren for a day of sandcastle building, or head to the popular tourist hot-spot of Torquay to discover attractions such as the renowned Paignton Zoo and Living Coast Aquarium, the museum, Dinosaur World and much more. Offering links to various locations across Devon and beyond, Apartment 18 is perfect for your family getaway at any time of the year.

The property is conveniently close to the mainline Railway station offering connections to the local towns as well as the Penzance to Paddington Railway Line.

About the location

NEWTON ABBOT

Teignmouth 5 miles; Shaldon 5 miles; Torquay 10 miles; Exeter 18 miles; Plymouth 31 miles

Newton Abbot is situated in the heart of The English Riviera, with its mild climate and thriving palm trees. The ancient market town now offers plenty of modern shops, both local and well-known high street chains and six leading brand supermarkets. There's also a racecourse where National Hunt racing takes place from spring until autumn, with craft fayres during the winter. Newton Abbot has a unique pub, the tap house and bottle shop, located in the building of what was a traditional working malthouse offering arguably the finest bottled beers in Devon. The seaside towns of Teignmouth, Shaldon and Dawlish are nearby and are fantastic destinations for families. Spend a day on the beach building sand castles and walk the impressive Victorian Pier at Teignmouth. The National Trust houses of Bradley Manor, Coleton Fishacre and Compton Castle and many others are well worth a visit, whilst the highlight of your stay will undoubtedly be the stunning beaches around Torquay and the many hidden coves such as Meadfoot, Oddicombe and further afield the pretty Ness Cove. And of course, the South West Coast Path provides stunning seascapes across the bay, with a popular stretch from Torquay Harbour to Daddyhole Plain, passing through Beacon Cove where Agatha Christie used to swim as a girl. Newton Abbot provides a fabulous base for an English seaside holiday all year round.
