Loved staying at the penthouse again, really great property which is extremely comfortable. My only gripe is the kitchen knives which were really blunt, a minor point but made cooking a challenge. Other than that perfect...

Mr Tim Pike,

Excellent location and a beautiful apartment.

Henry Wiggins,

Lovely apartment and a great location. Would definately recommend this place!!! All areas were fantastic

Mrs Michelle Evans,

Dartmouth is a beautiful, fun place to visit, best out of the high season I am sure. There are so many lovely and interesting places to visit by boat, steam train or by car and there is a good choice of restaurants and quaint pubs in Dartmouth. Can thoroughly recommend Alfrescos for the best breakfast ever with cheerful efficient service, and The Picnic Boat is great fun with delicious cream teas, (or other meals of your choice!)/. Lovely for a special occasion! We booked our accommodation through Blue River Cottages who were very helpful.

N Gierth,
