Reviews

We really enjoyed our stay and the property was really well equipped and thoughtful touches throughout.

mrs C R,

This property far exceeded our expectations, was superbly equipped, spotlessly clean and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. Excellent property, superb service, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Blueriver or this particular property.

Previous Customer,

Ben’s Place is in a lovely quiet part of Torquay and a great apartment with beautiful sea views. We would return again without hesitation.

Mrs Jean G,

Ben's Place was an amazing home from home. The view to the sea was beautiful and never ceased to make me smile no matter how many times I opened the blinds. The kitchen had everything you need. The hot tub had the same view, we enjoyed the heated water every evening. Torquay was lovely, a short but hilly walk to the town centre. The wifi signal was great and the entertainment varied. My mobile signal (3) was in and out but O2 signal was fine. Ben's Place was an amazing home from home. The view to the sea was beautiful and never ceased to make me smile no matter how many times I opened the blinds.

miss K T,

This is a lovely holiday home

Mrs Sharon D,
