I probably would have given this place a rating of 5 if we hadn't stayed in such a wonderful place in Ely for two weeks prior to coming to Topsham. There are just small things that keep me from that 5. Two light bulbs burned out, a cabinet door loose, no hot pads to take things out of the oven (but several kitchen towels which I used as such), not many dishes for the microwave or instructions on how it works, hair dryer not long enough to reach a mirror. And it is true the apartment is on a busy corner so can get very noisy at times. However, having said all of that, we enjoyed our stay there. So easy to get around the area since the #57 bus (Exeter to Exmouth) stops about a minute walk away. The train station is about a 5 minute walk. The chairs and couch in the living room are very comfortable as are the beds (although the latter are a bit low on the floor). Nice bathroom with a good shower and tub. The owner even stopped by at one point to see how we were doing - very friendly and enthusiastic lady. We would happily stay there again if we ever get back to that area as the location is ideal (except for the traffic noise)..

“Lovely light and comfortable apartment.”
Reviewed 3 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Lovely light and comfortable apartment, I highly recommend this beautiful apartment in Topsham. The town was lovely, the weather was beautiful and the people were very friendly. Everything is within walking distance. If travelling by car, there are lots of lovely places close by to visit.
We were very happy in this apartment, and I especially loved how much liight there was in the apartment. It was also very warm.

“Modern, bright, spacious apartment - great location in the centre of town”
Reviewed 30 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We (3 adults) stayed in Topsham for 2 nights in August. Topsham is a really lovely town on the river (beautiful sunsets) with lots of interesting shops; and the River Exe Apartment exceeded our expectations. The apartment is bright, spacious, clean and modernly furnished. Although located in the center of town, we did not find it to be noisy. The kitchen is well equipped, the living room is spacious and comfortable, the bedrooms are large (with comfortable beds) and the well appointed bathroom (tub with shower) is a really good size. Although a parking space is not included in the rental, we had no problems parking our rental car in the nearby public parking lot. We had a great stay at the River Exe and hope to return.

“Very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Booking was dealt with very efficiently. Loved the apartment which was very clean and well appointed. Did not have our own transport but not a problem as apartment was very close to public transport and all the amenities the delightful little town of Topsham has to offer. We will be back.

“A lovely apartment in the centre of Topsham”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

On the central crossroad of the town, just above the Topsham Wine shop (very interesting, by the way), is the River Exe Apartment. Beautifully restored and made up, it has everything you need for a short (or perhaps a long) stay. The layout is fantastic, with two (probably) old dwellings melt together skilfully: living room and kitchen have no doors between them, still they are physically separated. Good bedrooms, soundproof (the streets are busy and noisy), and a great bathroom (yes, it's important!). Two areas of improvement: a flat of that quality deserves better than IKEA wardrobes (they are wonky in an old house with uneven floors); and parking is a problem, but this is the price you pay to be in a central location. In all, a beautiful place.

“Short break”
Reviewed 12 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a great time staying in the River Exe, everything was to hand. Very clean and lovely decor. Topsham is a great village as well, just a couple of hours from where we live but felt like a real holiday break. Thank you.
