  • "Love place clean ideal situation close to sea front, pubs/restaurants & shopping centre."

    Everything you want on your door step. Have stayed here 3 times in the last 16 months

  • "Excellent apartment, good situation within the town (close to beach and shops)."

    Weekly car park worked very well, but we had to move the car every 24 hours because of Teignbridge Council restrictions which could have been explained. We would stay again except that the sitting room furniture was so uncomfortable, with low backs, that I was forced to use the upright dining room chairs for most of the week. Other than that the apartment was quite delightful and I would recommend it for younger people. If the sitting room furniture was improved we would be back in a trice.

  • "A lovely apartment in a very convenient position, our only criticism is the sofa was uncomfortable."

    It was a very well equipped apartment, we also met the housekeeper who was very lovely.

  • "Excellent stay and perfectly sized and equipped for us."

    The addition of curtains in the living room may have made it a bit more cosy and also reduce the heating bills. Earlier check in and later check out would also have been welcomed even if it was just by 30 minutes as it was getting quite dark when we arrived but we did know the times before we booked so not a problem.

  • "Lovely property in an excellent location."

    Modern decor, very comfortable bed, very well equipped kitchen, spacious living area, separate area for coats and boots etc. Perfectly located for both beaches and the town centre. It was so lovely and exactly what we were looking for that we rebooked another stay while we were there. Would not hesitate to recommend.

  • "This is the second time we have stayed here & again it was delightful."

    So clean & comfortable with the shops, pubs & beach all within 5 mins walking distance. Bus stops 5 min walk to go anywhere. Shall definitely be staying again.

    Unfortunately, we were called away before the end of the week, but would like to think we will be able to go back again in the future.

  • "Absolutely no negative feedback at all except one small thing."

    There wasn't a hairdryer provided. Have never stayed in a Sykes Cottage, Airbnb or any hotel before where a hairdryer was not provided. We had to go out and buy a travel one. Apart from that the apartment was very good and well appointed and ideally placed for shops, restaurants and the beach. Recommend the Trade Winds restaurant and the Ye Old Jolly Sailor for eating out and the Oystercatcher and Relish cafes for breakfast.

    Thank you for your feedback and so please you enjoyed your stay at Samphire. We have taken your comments on board. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely amazing property."

    Loved it!!! Modern clean just fabulous!! Location superb, Central to everything and a car park across the road. Everything was fab. Only thing I felt was missing was a waste bin in the bathroom. Not a huge problem obviously but I feel that one is needed. Thank you for a fantastic week in a lovely property.

  • "The apartment was lovely, however on reflection I would have picked an upper floor due to lack of privacy on ground floor due to being near quite a pedestrianised area."

    The apartment was really close to all that you needed. We had a lovely welcome gift from Ken. Already looking at dates to return.

    The property is immaculate and very well equipped and everything works. The position is brilliant within a few yards of both beaches and perfectly placed for the town centre where the selection of shops covers all needs. All in all very comfortable and Samphire and Teignmouth are gems. We loved both Joe and Grace Elliott

  • "Very warm tastefully decorated and furnished."

    Very Comfortable bed. An excellent Kitchen with all cutlery and utensils etc. Matching four piece dinnerware including cups, glassware. I would thoroughly recommend property ( renovated 19th century property to a very high standard into four apartments). The only downside for us because I have a powered wheelchair And My wife has a small mobility scooter. It was problematic having to physically move them in and out. I recommend if you have mobility equipment and drive take a ramp .

  • "Excellent accommadation very tastefully decorated."

    Bed exceptionally comfortable, although we ate out most days the kitchen seemed fully equiped if you wanted to cook. There is a car park opposite the accommadation which you can park for upto4 hours which made it very easy for unloading the car. We bought a car permit for the week and parked in the Quay car park as we didn't want to have to keep going out to move the car. Just across the road through the small car park there were many places to etc, pubs Italian and a very nice Indian..Would highly recommend this accommadation would like to return in the future

  • "Very well situated and clean apartment."

    Unfortunately they're was banging and drilling from around 7am every morning, and foot steps going up and down the stairs regularly, so it wasn't a restful holiday and went home very tired. Parking was also a nightmare.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear you were disturbed during your stay. We do wish you had contacted us at the time to allow us to investigate this further. We have spoken with the owner who states the adjacent property was having some work done recently and had he known of the early starts he would most certainly have spoken with the neighbour.
