Excellect

From booking the apartment online to our arrival and departure everything went smoothly. Booking was easy, and as the holiday got nearer we were given details for key collection, contact details and directions. The apartment was everything we had hoped for- A great place to spend our honeymoon, with our 19 month old daughter, although I'd say the apartment isn't suitable for toddlers. The facilities were great and the pool was wonderful. We had great weather during our stay so we were able to go out and about every day, unfortunately we did have to use the car due to the winding narrow roads with no paths. Overall we had a great break, and will be recommending the apartment to our family and friends.

Great apartment, great facilities, great location, great holiday

We had a lovely time at The Manor in Torquay. The location is amazing with breathtaking seaviews and a stone's throw from the beach/seafront. It was a fraction of the cost for a similar calibre hotel, and we had much more room than we would have had, had we stayed in a hotel. The swimming pool was lovely, and great for the days when it was too rainy to go out. The flat itself was great with a smart TV, DVD collection and player and very comfortable. We will definitely be visiting again, and in fact two members of our family have already booked in the same place, based on our recommendation.

Thank you for such wonderful accommodation, superb "5 star Plus".

Thank you for such wonderful accommodation, superb "5 star Plus". Your welcome gift of chocolates and wine was much appreciated. What a lovely gesture. The grounds and surroundings were perfect for a peaceful and restful retreat. Our 85 year old mum found it relaxing, comfortable and captivating. The pool, fantastic, had brilliant weather. We will definitely stay here again. Once again, thank you so much.

We had a lovely relaxing stay

This was our 2nd visit to apartment number 12 and we were just as impressed as the first time. Once again the apartment was beautiful and our eldest daughter was thrilled with the addition of Wi-Fi. Our youngest daughter loved the pool. We had a lovely relaxing stay. Thanks again for our fantastic holiday.

To The Manor Born

The Manor House is an amazing building - the entrance itself, as you drive through the iron gates that are electronically controlled, is quite impressive. Once the car was parked in its allocated spot, unloading the luggage and the bags of provisions for our stay was the heavy bit- James the butler was on holiday! So we lugged everything to the back of the property where our apartment was situated, on ground level - this meant walking down a few steps. As one of our party suffered with her knees, rather than use the steps we crossed the lawn to our apartment. What a beautiful apartment!! A welcoming gift of a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates were on the table. After a well earned cuppa we explored the apartment and later enjoyed a lovely meal with the wine and of course a chocolate. What a beautiful peaceful location. We were attending a 3 day conference at the Riviera Centre so the location was ideal, only five minutes drive. Coming back at the end of the evening to the Manor House was great. We loved our stay - the whole procedure from booking the apartment, the communication and the delivery of service was excellent. As we packed the car with our luggage we took our final look at the Manor House, named Hogwarts, by some young person in the Visitor's Book, as it has so many layers and turrets as well as blackbirds resting on the many chimneys -and said 'see you again one day!

stress free booking

We had an amazing holiday at 12 Manor House. We had emails throughout the booking progress, letting us know about payments made, how to pick up keys, owner information and directions to get there. Will find it hard to use any other booking agency now - Blue Chip are the best! Our apartment was beautiful, spotless and had everything we needed for a great holiday. Will certainly be looking at booking again.

12 The Manor House

A stunning property in a beautiful tranquil and secure location, extremely well equipped apartment containing everything you will need for a self catering holiday, other than food. Number 12 was spotlessly clean with plenty of daylight flooding through the south facing windows. The gardens are also immaculate and although there was building renovation going on whilst we where there, there was no disturbance and the chaps that are working on the property are complete gentlemen.

Torquay, Manor House Apartments.

It's always nice to arrive at your accommodation and not be disappointed. The apartment was spacious, airy, very clean and with excellent facilities.The rooms were well sized and had good attention to detail A good sized swimming pool and table tennis table were also very welcome when you have twin teenage sons. The apartment is well placed too; not too far away from Torquay centre but far enough so there's little noise or traffic to bother you. Really enjoyed our stay and we plan to return in 2017.

Can't fault our stay at No 12 Manor House. The apartment was a home from home, comfortable and clean with everything you could need. The location was also ideal, close enough to all amenities, no to need to use the car, but far enough away to be peaceful. So impressed already booked for next year.

Thank you for a lovely, relaxing holiday

17/10/2015 Glorious weather coupled with a very comfortable and well thought out apartment, we were so lucky. Thank you for the wine and chocolates, they started the week off really well. Can recommend the food at Le Bistrot Pierre and a visit to Torquay Theatre. The local bus service is a really good way to get around and see all the sights along the coast as bus fares are very reasonable, especially the day riders. Thank you for a lovely, relaxing holiday.
