We booked a 7 night stay at 4 Queens Quay, lovely spacious apartment, very clean and well equipped. Location perfect for shops, bars and restaurants. Good view but unable to sit on balcony as you couldn't use as seating area as needed a clean and far too noisy plus no actual seating provided.
Even though good location very loud at night and woken 4 out of the 7 from drunken crowds leaving bars/clubs.. ( this was a shame as everything else was perfect)
Overall we would recommend could not get any more central for easy access to everything. The apartments inside were quiet and we didn't see a sole while we were there. :-)
This appartment is really nicely finished. It is large - has comfortable rooms - a central location with good views. It is in fact one of the nicest appartments in which we have stayed in so what went wrong. What Blue Chip fail to tell you is that the apparment is located very close to several night clubs each of which has numerous offers on cheap drinks. Two doors away is a Subway sandwich takeaway which is open 24 hours. This appears to be the gathering point for all of the inebriates in Torquay who meet there raucously from around midnight until approximately 5.00 am. The screaming and shouting lasts for a number of hours and it is extremely disconcerting if you are trying to sleep. We were there from September 1st to the 8th and this performance took place on every night - in fact it tired us out so much that we returned home one day early because we thought that a Friday night would be horrendous. The level of sleep deprivation achieved in this appartment would rival anything produced by the CIA. It is a great shame that this situation exists because the appartment is really nice. Torquay's reputation is certainly tarnished by the behaviour of these revellers - whilst we were there there was no intervention by anyone - the people just ran amok - screaming and shouting seemed to be acceptable behaviour which is a sad reflection on such a nice town. Blue Chip also do not inform any of their potential punters regarding the noise factor of this appatment block - if we had known prior to booking we would have chosen one of their other appartments. If you are looking for a nice appartment in Torquay with no possibility of sleep look no further however if you are looking for an appartment where you can comfortably relax avoid this one like the plague.
