The flat was very comfortable and clean. Being so near to the marina not only provided stunning views but lovely walks. Bus stops were near if required with buses every hour. Eating places were plenty with a good carvery not too far away. As the property was up on a hill for those less able it could be hard going walking back from the marina and the entrance to the actual building is quite steep. Our hosts were very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble for them, and even offered to pick us up from the bottom of the hill if we couldn't make it back! There were more than enough shops for a small town to browse through and you had a fair selection of pubs. At the marina you could get boat trips to Paignton, Dartmouth and Torquay at reasonable costs with information of local history provided by the captains on route. All in all we had a good week in Brixham and the apartment couldn't have been in a better position for enjoing the views. Would recommend and may go again.

Very clean and comfortable - slightly hot on top floor due to hot weather but mustn't complain! Easy access to delightful harbour town and well placed for visiting other attractions. Lovely beaches and plenty to see. Would highly recommend.

As expected, the accommodation was excellent and now even better with the refurbishment of bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen. A nice little touch on arrival with welcoming tea, coffee etc and bottle of wine. The views over Brixham's harbours and town are fabulous and we wouldn't hesitate to book again.
