"What an amazing holiday we had at the Balcony in Torquay! This apartment was luxurious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It had everything we could wish for and it couldn't have been in a better position. One minute walk to the beach and the view from the balcony of the gorgeous gardens and pool below, stretching to the sea just beyond was such a treat. We are already talking about booking next year. Definitely one our best ever holidays!"

Jill and Steve Bennett, Nottingham, July 2016

Great location and the views are fantastic, the private parking space a real bonus. So glad we discovered this place, it's on our list for a return stay."

A pleasure to return to after a day out and about. Would have no hesitation in returning for a peaceful holiday location!"

Mrs M Sharp, Lancashire, July 2014

"Beautiful Apartment, tastefully furnished with a very comfy king size bed. Kitchen had everything you would need. Lovely views overlooking the sea and we watched the big ships out on the horizon in an evening. Our biggest bonus was going most places by bus which stopped at the end of Hesketh Crescent and we used our freebie (OAP) bus passes for the very first time. Hope to return one day soon. Pleased to have a private parking space at the end of the road."

Brenda & Mike, rugby, July 2014

Joe and Margaret from Staffordshire, June 2014

"Absoloutely stunning. The apartment was wonderful, with everything we could have needed. Very well thought out. The setting was beautiful in such lovely gardens and with the sea so close. Loved every minute of it."

Debbie and Andrew from Australia, May 2014

"5* stars ~ Thank you for a lovely stay at The Balcony. The location of the apartment was perfect (private parking space a real bonus) and we were lucky to have 2 sunny days to enjoy the stunning view. We found the accommodation very comfortable, clean and well equipped, directions and key collection all very straightforward. Would love to stay for longer next time :-)"

Sarah & Ken, Sixpenny Handley, March 2014

"Had a lovely stay at the Balcony apartment. The apartment was well equipped & nice and clean. Wonderful views over the sea."

Samantha, Rowley Regis, February 2014

"5* stars ~ Our 9th year at The Balcony and as excellent as ever. Extremely comfortable and well appointed with everything you could wish for. A real home from home- definitely NOT a holiday let. Oh- and the views across the bay- far better than the TV. Even in January we lunched four times on the balcony in the Hesketh Crescent micro-climate. We'll be back next year. Thanks to the owners and the cleaners- superb!"

Bob & Jenny, Woking, January 2014

"5* ~ Spent two weeks in The Balcony and the apartment was just what we had hoped for. Actually, it was beyond expectations: extremely clean, spacious, luxurious, beautifully decorated, a comfortable bed and shower and just all the facilities one could need were there. The terrace might even be the biggest asset: we enjoyed it every day to enjoy our breakfast, lunch or late afternoon wine. The service was excellent as well. Sue and Richard: your attention to detail and personal touch was much appreciated, thank you again for that. Everything was just perfect. Hope to be back soon! South Devon has a lot to offer and we had too little time to do all the sightseeing and try all the nice restaurants in the area. Good tip: if you are planning to do a lot of sightseeing, bring your own convertible car or hire one at the airport, you won't regret it. Can recommend Discovery Holiday Homes as well as The Balcony apartment to anyone. Many thanks and best regards from rainy Rotterdam."

Sylvia & Paul, Rotterdam,The Netherlands, May 2013

"Period apartment within a listed building. Wonderful position. Lovely sea views. Very spacious for two. Very well maintained and decorated. Immaculately clean throughout. All in all an amazing place for a great holiday."

"A wonderful family holiday made even more special by a 'Class A' apartment. We have stayed in some swanky places and this is clearly a well thought out space. We love the whole retro feel, yet none of the mod-cons have been compromised. Absolutely loved it and will be back again. Tennis before breakfast each morning is a must!"

Nya, Diya, Jayne & Dan, North Hertfordshire, May 2011
