  • "This is the second time we have stayed in Seascapes and the third time we have stayed in Granville Point, and this occasion was no different from the previous stays."

    Beautiful outlook across the Sea and surrounding Town makes staying here a joy. The apartment is nicely furnished and the Beds comfortable. Bathrooms are clean and tidy with excellent showers . Short walk to Town and short drives to places like Woolacombe make this an excellent base from which to see the surrounding Countryside. Seagulls are a hazard to car paintwork but nothing much can be done to prevent that, it is by the Sea after all, but cleaning it off quickly is need or else paintwork will be damaged. Would we holiday here again…yes we would and enjoy just as much as the previous two stays.

  • "Some really good and some really bad things."

    The views and size of the apartment were amazing. It was well stocked (other than having to provide our own hand soap). The location was as listed. The towels and sheets felt air-dried and rough and quite old - definitely not ‘luxury’ We had two issues with heat and hot water while we were there which were resolved fairly quickly. However, during this we discovered that quite a few people nearby had keys to the apartment. This is understandable BUT quite alarming because there is no inside security lock for safety while in the apartment. The bedrooms are downstairs and you would not be able to hear someone entering the apartment. When we first got there, we had to get out the vacuum to remove 6 spiders and their well-established webs from the living room corners. The TV only had freeview - in an apartment listed as luxury I would expect a smart TV to be able to stream from an iPad to the TV. Last but certainly not least, the sofa and chairs were the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced. Seriously painful. Made worse by no footrest or reclining. In the evening it is nice to be able to sit and relax and watch TV or read a book. This was not possible.

    The storm that raged the country, knocked out one of the main communal boilers. both electric and hot water were reinstated quickly. In the meantime were supplied several auxiliary heaters. We would like to reassure future guests that no one would enter the property without ringing the bell or knocking for the visitors first and only then if there was a safety issue. As for the suite, this is the first time we have had a complaint, furniture is subjective to personal judgment. Property Owner

  • "A wonderful apartment in a great location which is very well equiped - far more so than others we have stayed in, we didn't lack for anything."

    Our only comments which I would like to be taken as constructive points not complaints, would be the cleanliness of the shower cubicle in the ensuite (black mould) which also has a leak through to the skirting board which leads to a horrible drain like smell. We did find an air purifyer in the bedroom which helped dispel the odour. There was also black mould on the shower screen in the main bathroom. Also the towels could all do with a good boil wash with some Glowhite - they are probably past their sell by date. We had a lovely stay and would like to thank the owners for sharing their property.

    Thank you for your feedback. The drain smell you mention is thought to be due to the amount of rain from the storm leading to the drains overflowing. This is being looked into further. The showers are cleaned extensively with bleach, so we are at a loss as to why there is mould. The towels were new at the start of the season but will be monitored. We are glad to hear of your positive comments. Property Owner

  • "It is truly wonderful property, thoughtfully decorated and with great furnishings - only one minor negative would be the fridge/freezer should be plumbed in so the water cooler and ice maker work - but this is very minor, and should not detract from it being scored as excellent."

  • "We had a lovely week and the weather was mostly kind to us although a bit blustery at times."

    The apartment is lovely, in a perfect location over looking the sea. The extractor fan over the hob stopped working but Joan got this fixed for us the same day that we reported it, so many thanks Joan for your prompt attention with this. We enjoyed a great stay in your very comfortable 'home form home' apartment and would stay there again when in that part of England.

  • "The seal had gone on the fridge / freezer door, whenever we closed the fridge door the freezer door popped open and vice versa."

    I couldn't look up how to remedy as the Wifi was not working. Paper instructions for this would have been useful - they could have been laminated so wiped after use - or even stuck to the fridge door. Also annoyingly the lift was not working for the whole duration of our stay, which when bringing in shopping, suitcases up and down the stairs was far from ideal - a couple of small things that were unnecessarily irritating. Also with the sleeping arrangements being at the bottom and living quarters upstairs, the downstairs was very airless and quite claustrophobic. The apartment however was stunning and the views just as seen in the photographs.

  • "A few issues with the underfloor central heating which was not set as indicated on wall and drain smell in ensuite which we have reported."

    It would have been good to have a second set of keys. Otherwise apartment was very spacious and the views were fabulous. Onsite parking a definite bonus. Our main issue is with the booking website that "bullied" you into getting insurance which most people have via their home insurance. We have booked numerous holiday lets with many different agencies over the years and never encountered this. It would certainly make Sykes a last resort in the future.
