I feel renewed

  • 5 of 5

Wow the views are spectacular and the back Street shops quirky, with local public houses and restaurants nearby that supply wonderful food as well as in John's convenience store too. I loved staying in the apartment it was immaculately clean and provided the perfect comfortable space for us to gather our thoughts as we came to accept the passing of my mum! We will return soon and highly recommend this apartment.

wonderful waterfront apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed and as usual the apartment was immaculately clean, the views were breathtaking and we were lucky with the weather. I would recommend the Beaver Inn and The Sea Gate for great food and a evening out. Instow is also worth a visit, we will definitely visit again next year.

My partner and I stayed here again for the weekend. Truly fallen in love with it here. High tide at night is amazing. Lovely unique property. Give the sea gate resturant for a meal and you will not be disappointed. 5 out 5 all round

Great location but filthy apartment

  • 1 of 5

The location of this apartment is stunning and the apartment was nicely decorated but filthy. The double bed was extremely comfortable being a memory foam but the two singles were aking to Nun's beds, springs sticking through and very very uncomfortable. There was mould in the shower, dirty cups and crockery in the cupboards, the glass tiles were smeared and dirty as were the windows. The occupant above kept us awake all night most nights with the sound of the tv and snoring so the sound insulation is awful. The wooden worktop was black with mould and broken through water damage, no dishcloths or dishwasher tablets were provided. Such a pity as it could have been a fabulous stay. The Beaver Inn at the end of the street is a little gem, great food and live entertainment.
