General Information


Whilst every reasonable care has been and will be taken to ensure your possessions are safe from loss or damage, I Graham Chilvers, cannot be held responsible for the loss of or damage to any of your possessions, or vehicle(s), no matter how this occurs.  The washing machine is new and in good order, but it is used at your risk.

Off Road Parking

There is a carport to the left of Riviera Mansion. This parking for both the Apartment and The Mews. The Mews parks on the Left side and the Apartment on the Right Side. There is a large sign saying “Reserved for the Apartment” on the right.  Some cars are low at the front and due to the high camber of the road they catch on their way on to the carport. If that’s the case then try reversing on to it.  Parking in the street is unrestricted where there aren’t double yellow lines. It can be busy during the day, but there are always spaces at night.  This is Google Street View and was taken in July 14


The granite worktops in the kitchen are expensive and can easily be damaged. Please use the chopping board when preparing food or cutting anything.

The Kitchen Lights are automatic. There are two types of lights. The LED lights will always come on when you enter the Kitchen.  You can also add the main lights by the switch on the wall. Both can be switched on permanently.   Hallway and Outside Lights are automatic.  You can also switch them on permanently.


The central heating is controlled by the thermostat and is running an automatic program. The temperature can be changed by the up & down buttons on the right side of the controller. The small temperature figure shows what the new temperature will be. The little flame sign that occasionally appears means the boiler is actually heating. There is also an electric heater in the lounge under the top flap of the electric fire. The Thermostat is in the Kitchen in the Apartment and in the Unity room in the Mews.


WiFi is available. It runs at plus 2.5mb/s. The password is “g26winchester”. It is in constant use throughout the building, so if you are incurring problems, it will most likely be with your equipment not the WiFi. It may have a low signal in the bedrooms. We do not offer computer support.


The floodlights are on till 10.30 PM Monday to  Friday. 12pm Saturday and Sunday.

Arrival and Departure.

When you leave, please leave your key where you found it. You need to leave by 10 am. The cleaners (two) will arrive shortly after 10 am and completely clean the Accommodation, restocking it and change all bedding and linen.  It is guarantee to be ready by 3.30pm. If you arrive after 12pm and the carport is empty, it is 99% certain the cleaners have been and gone and you can go into the accommodation  early.


The nearest grocery store is a Tesco express in Castle Circus, which is the top end of town.  9 Lymington Rd, Torquay,  TQ1 4AQ. The next and larger is a Waitrose, St Marychurch Road, Torquay, TQ1 3HL. There is an out of town shopping centre with an M&S and Sainsbury’s at the Willows, Browns Bridge Rd Torquay TQ2 7HT


The rubbish bin is in the kitchen. Also the outside bins are to the far right end of the property past the garages.


In an emergency, I am available on 01803 297757  or 07974003739   mail@gchilvers.com

Hope You have a Great Time. Graham Chilvers.
