Moorings Reach
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Just returned from a week in this lovely apartment. The apartment was beautifully furnished, clean and had everything we needed and more, a real home from home. Harbour view from the lounge and main bedroom, and only a five minute sea front stroll to Brixhams restaurants and shops. Welcoming tea, coffee and biscuits were a lovely touch. Two car parking spaces came with this property which was perfect for us as two families. Booking and access arrangements with Blue Chip went perfectly. Sad to leave, would go again in a heartbeat.

we booked this apartment through blue chip holidays which described it as 5 star. number 56 was definitley not 5 star quality. the carpets were stained and the sofa's were uncomfortable and grubby, the T.V. was ancient, plus no smoke alarms anywere. This place is in need of a complete update.

Apart from that, the apartment is in a good location overlooking the harbour with a nice walk to the town centre along the harbour front. Plus a nice pub nearby with good meals.
We enjoyed Brixham, shame about the apartment.

Our accommodation with BCV was, as advertised, 5* (ETB self-catering).
LCD tv in the living room & master bedroom - great quality unlike some others with 'cast-off'' type tvs.
Welcoming biscuits, tea & coffee and even fresh milk in the fridge!

Great decor & standard of accommodation & kept amazingly clean!
Good quality linen.
Even included a lemon zester, pizza tray & cutter, ice bucket & so many plates and dishes and types of glass - every item you could wish for in the kitchen.
A true home from home - unusually.

We have also stayed in the chillier months. We were toasty and can either watch the boats bobbing into harbour or the fishing boats going out or coming back.
Warmer days in these months (moderate climate there) you can sit ou on the chairs on the balcony.

Garage was available on the ground level which is very useful as this provides the option of free parking for 2 vehicles. Parking is tricky otherwise in the Summer.
The house is in a gated community.

Don't be put off by the other reviewer. We have gone back & will return again!!

We stayed in Moorings Reach, Brixham self catering (Blue Chip Vacations) in May 2010 and we were so disappointed.

A chilly weather week was made tough with a dodgy central heating system, Three days with no heating nor hot water was a trial.

Even worse was the poor standard of cleaning - with a dirty oven and the fridge with old food remnants that made an unpleasant odour !!

Finally, the company only give you one key - there were three of us staying and only one key was a nightmare until we discovered the companys claim that the key was a security key and couldn't be cut was untrue and we had a copy cut in Brixham.

Now Brixham and its restaurants are wonderful - but be so careful where you stay.
