  • "Wonderful holiday,office staff excellent."

    Not a single thing to complain about. I would have liked a Nespresso coffee machine.thats all I can think to suggest that could have improved our holiday.

  • "We have stayed at no 7 before, returned due to its great location and the view."

    Great bathrooms and room sizes, the only slight negative for us is that we find the beds too firm for a comfortable night's sleep, and perhaps for the cost of staying here you might expect Sky TV?

  • "Absolutely beautiful property in a stunning location."

    Can’t wait to go back there. One very small thing; it would be nice to have a TV in the second bedroom. Other than that, faultless!!

  • "Excellent property."

    Only one comment, it would be useful to have all the instructions for the different appliances and systems put into into just one folder and for the tv instructions to be more clear.

  • "No.7, Dart Marina is a perfectly positioned, well maintained apartment with wonderful uninterrupted views across the River Dart."

    The Kitchen is reasonably well stocked with cutlery and crockery. There’s a good sized integrated fridge freezer, useful washer/dryer, dishwasher and hob/oven. The large ‘mains-pressure’ hot water cylinder has the capacity to supply lots of hot water to enjoy the oversized baths. The central heating works well and the furnishings are thoughtfully deployed to create a relaxing, classy feeling. The highlight is surely the lounge with its full length bifold windows. Sitting at the dining table for breakfast with the river view is superb. Even on a dreary, overcast day of drizzle it’s a nice place to be - glance up as the Higher Ferry quietly traverses the river, the navy cadets are being trained in their little naval ships or a yacht sails past. We also had the pleasure of seeing the steam loco hauled ‘train of lights’ just before New Year on the far bank of the river. The technology was easy for us to use - wifi, smart TV or built in sound system with Bluetooth connectivity to our own iPad music library (although we noted that the speakers / control units in the ensuite and kitchen do not function, the latter being mentioned in the information pack). Beds were comfortable and the fluffy white towels were of a luxury hotel standard. The apartment is a relatively short and pleasant walk from the town centre, unbelievably quiet given its central location and comes with a precious allocated car parking space right outside. Main entrance is spotless as is the lift, making access with luggage so easy. It’s clear from reading past guest reviews that earlier feedback has been noted and action taken in response to suggestions etc. So in the same constructive spirit then… the top, flat brushed stainless steel surface of the cooker hood needs to be cleaned after every guest leaves. With me being just under 6ft tall it’s obvious because it’s at about my eye level. If your cleaning team are a somewhat less tall then they may not be noticing the build up of dust and light grease. Otherwise though the apartment is spotless. We loved our eleven night stay and would return. It isn’t cheap but does deliver for the money - what price for an apartment that helps make the most of precious time with the family? Since these apartments are being sold for around £1m the weekly rental seems about right. To the owner and the team managing the apartment - thank you. An excellent example of what high quality holiday accommodation in the U.K. should offer in support of a wonderful break on the south Devon coast.

    The view of the River Dart is amazing and we stayed in just watching the world go by a good deal of the time. The most fantastic Christmas ever. Thank you for the complimentary gifts on arrival.

  • "Did not like the coast and country instructions which appeared to make us responsible for everything literally could be interpreted we were responsible for the cleaning " leave everything as you found it"."

    We were paying nearly £300 per night. We fully appreciated that because of Covid the towels and bedding needed to be put into bags. Had it not been for this and the wi-fi not working it would have been given 5 stars. It was a beautiful apartment overlooking the marina and all the river activities and yes we would book it again if it was available

  • "A truly superb apartment in a stunning location."

    We have stayed in many holiday cottages in the last 30 years but this is, without exception, the very best. Sitting at the dining table with the large windows fully open for a meal is an amazing experience. The life of a busy holiday river is all in front of you. We will certainly return to 7 Dart Marina.

  • "I have stayed in several properties in Dart Marina, and No."

    7 is my favourite. It is well supplied, well maintained and well looked after. Parking is immediately outside. The view is magical. There is a lift up to the front door. Lift takes normal width wheelchair. Doorways are wide. There are rugs on top of the wooden floor. Bedrooms have carpet. The en-suite shower has steps up into it as you will see in the photo online. The double bed is firm but comfortable. The single beds are soft and suit me fine. Good quality linen. Only downside is the price. My word is it expensive!

  • "Lovely flat."

    Bedding and especially pillows excellent. I have a back neck and bring my own pillow but didn't need to use it. Crockery - not as much supplied as in previous holiday places - would have liked some breakfast bowls.

  • "Very well presented, loved the way the windows on the internal balcony pulled right back so you felt you were outside but safe and protected from the wind."

    Top of the range equipment throughout - loved the sound system wired to every room; and at the same time really comfortable and with the easy access lift, and parking right outside, no problems for infirm guests. Incredible views across the marina and watching the boats, the ferry and the steam engine were all very soothing - a great tonic for destressing.

  • "It was just like moving into someone's home."

    Beautiful decor and furnishings and a view to die for. The internal balcony made it feel like you were sitting on the river bank - even in October. Luxury all round from the surround sound radio in all rooms, bathrooms included, and electric curtains

  • "The apartment was very well equipped except for the saucepans which were very poor quality and looked dirty, to the point where we did not want to use them."

    This is the third apartment we have stayed in at Dart Marina and we have not had this problem before.

  • "Amazing view from this first floor flat."

    Well appointed and roomy - lovely big sofa. Car parking space right outside the door. The large king size bed is firm but comfortable. The twin beds have much more give but are still supportive - and are my favourites. There is a lift up to the flat, and all door ways are wide enough for a wheelchair. The satellite TV is a tad confusing, but there are instructions. This is my favourite apartment in Dart Marina - because of the view and also because of the decent beds. I cannot abide beds with solid bases and hard mattresses - it is such a false economy. Am hoping to return soon.

  • "Wonderful apartment with amazing views over the marina and River Dart and just a short walk into the centre of Dartmouth."

    Excellent facilities within the apartment, good standard of decoration. One problem we did experience was when using the Swimming Pool within the complex - it was so busy we had to wait for an hour and a half before we could gain entry, and then when we were able to go in there were a lot of young children who were not being supervised sufficiently. We didn't bother trying to use the facility again during our stay.

    May 2014

  • "The apartment was very clean with well designed room layouts and lovely views."

    However, for a 5 star rated property we would have expected there to be more in the way of crockery and cutlery in the kitchen eg the cereal bowls were plastic and were more suited to a picnic on the beach than a 5 star holiday home. Also, there were no decent knives - no bread knife etc.

About the location

DARTMOUTH

Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
