We have stayed in Moorings Reach before but not at this apartment,the views are great over the harbour but the beds were terrible! We had to pile duvets on top,why these lovely apartments have such poor beds we cannot imagine! The singles upstairs were creaky and uncomfortable. The dining room smelt musty and damp and the kettle in the kitchen was dangerous as water ran down the outside when it boiled into the electrical plug. Both bathrooms had carpet on the floor which was stained around the toilet area. We were very disappointed with this apartment and paying over £800 for a week we felt let down.
You can't beat the location of this property; it has fantastic views of the harbour and is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. The facilities are good; it has all the kitchen untencils that you would need, and they were all sparkling clean when we arrived. The patio area is lovely, and we spent most of our time here - a table parasol would have been a welcome addition though. The property does allow dogs, and although it was very clean, there was a slight aroma of dog on the lower floors. There were no dog hairs anywhere, so the property is obviously very well cleaned between guests. The only other downside was the beds; they are not the most comfortable. I had to put 3 duvets on top of my mattress in order to sleep and the bedding was a little rough, but I am quite fussy, so they might be fine for most people.
Overall, we had a very lovely stay at 39 Moorings Reach. The welcome tray of shortbread biscuits and tea/coffee was very much appreciated, and there was a good supply of books and DVDs, should the weather not be in your favour. The only thing missing was a visitors book; I love reading previous guests recommendations of restaurants and days out.
We look forward to returning to Moorings Reach next year, it was a real hit with the kids.
