  • "We have stayed many times over the years at the Thurlestone Rock apartments."

    We have stayed in no 4 a few times and noticed a few things, the sink in the en-suite is very loose, if someone were to lean on it I think it would come away. The oven needs a good clean, the inside of the doors were very dirty. We had to buy toilet paper as there was not enough for the two of us. Having said that we will return.

  • "Hi. Very enjoyable stay, Lovely apartment and facilities with Plenty of hot water and modern appliances."

    Our only comment/ suggestion would be to replace the old king size bed in the master bedroom to a super king size bed as the mattress and bed look dated and a super king size is far more comfortable. Thank you.

    Such a gorgeous location, wonderful sea views, right on the beach and a light and roomy apartment. The balcony is the clincher - just open the door from the living room and soak up the ozone and the sound and view of the sea. A lovely relaxing place to say.

    It's extremely comfortable and well appointed. The weather was unbelievably good this year and we were able to enjoy every minute of the incredible position of the property to the beach and sea.

  • "Hello This was our 7th or 8th stay at 4 Thurlestone Rock."

    We felt this time the flat is a little tired and could do with a refresh. During our stay the dishwasher was blocked so not in use the previous renters left us a note to say that but C&C did not pick this up. The bed in the 3rd bedroom was very un comfortable for an adult , a very thin mattress . We have booked in May 23 and hope things will be rectified by then.

  • "The flat is beginning to look tired."

    Balcony doors and windows in the flat need desperately replacing. Also on the balcony needed cleaning and balcony furniture cushions needed safe disposal. Extract in the family bathroom did not work and towel rail in en-suite did not work.. Having said we had a lovely holiday with great sunsets

  • "Couldn't ask for more , apartment right on the sea so close you could probably fish from the balcony when the tides in !"

    Apartment clean and fresh , very spacious and had everything you needed , my son loved the pool and when the tide is out the sea becomes a warm crystal clear place to paddle or swim and can be used by all ages , if you can I recommend the coast walk to nearby hope cove for a delicious ice cream , negatives..not many , met a couple of rude people from Apartment above , but you can't choose the people you meet , and the roads are really narrow which is a shame and off putting , but both of theses negatives have nothing to do with this beautiful apartment

  • "The flat is extremely well appointed, clean and very comfortable."

    The views are incredible! Amazing to watch a heron fishing in the rock pools from the balcony. We had a wonderful week and have some lovely memories created in an idyllic location. We've been to Flat 4 before and we'd definitely book again. The perfect place to visit and come away feeling relaxed and recharged.

  • "I have already submitted a complaint as there are a list of issues with this property, and it is not as advertised."

    General repairs are needed, for example windows don’t open, toilet lids missing, broken handles on pans, the front door has to be locked by key to keep closed, the broadband does NOT work!! I could go on but would hope the company would have the courtesy to at least reply to my complaint

    Mr. Raybone, We were sorry to read your complaints and the relevant issues raised have all been dealt with now. However, we would add that some of them were over exaggerated or incorrect. We hope you find the perfect holiday property next year! Owners. Property Owner

    The apartment was spacious and clean, some of the furniture was a little worn & a couple of the windows wouldn't open but these are very minor points and didn't in any way detract from our enjoyment.

    It’s always been brilliant but it’s now needs a bit of tender loving care ! There was only WiFi for two days we did ring and it was put right then it would go again got fed up with ringing! The windows need some love some don’t open! The bedroom wall lights were broken but working! Dishwasher work when it wanted too ! In general it’s time to spend money on it ! But thank you for all the lovely holidays we have had over the years .

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are so pleased you have enjoyed your holidays at 4 Thurlestone Rock for the past 7 years. We can only apologise that you experienced the issues you did. There has recently been a new router delivered to the property so we are sorry that it was working intermittently for your stay.

  • "There were a couple of points which gave the impression that the apartment was not as well maintained as it could be."

    The sink was lose in the bathroom and there is mould and flaking plaster in the master bedroom. Location was excellent which made up for the tired and dated appearance of the accommodation. When travelling with four children the supply of bath towels would be appreciated due to lack of luggage room in vehicle

    Many thanks for your feedback, although we were concerned to read that the property was not satisfactorily presented prior to your arrival. As you will appreciate, we work very hard with our owners and housekeepers to ensure high standards are maintained. Your feedback has been passed on to the Owner who has arranged for these issues to be resolved. We do hope that you had an enjoyable holiday in spite of the issues raised and look forward to welcoming you back to Salcombe in the not too distant future. Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely apartment with stunning views of the sea."

    You wake up in the morning and all you can see is the sea - you could be on a cruise ship! The location is perfect, being so close to the beach. The beds are comfortable and the sitting/dining room has been refurbished and is a lot nicer than the photos online. Unfortunately though we will not be able to stay at this apartment again as the wifi is almost non-existent. In this day and age wifi is a necessity and a basic provision. I can only assume it is on a basic package as other guests/residents there told us they didn't have a problem with it. Also the TV signal is terrible, at one stage we could only get BBC1 & BBC2. Having stayed at other Coast and Country Cottages we have never had this issue. Such a sham to spoil a great place!

  • "This was an excellent property : spacious, spotlessly clean, well appointed with beautiful views."

    The only negative point was the fact that the pump on the heating system for the swimming pool broke down the week before we arrived. It had still not been repaired until the end of our stay there, so the water was absolutely freezing, despite the hot sunny weather ! In fact, we didn't use the pool as it was so cold. The use of a heated pool was one of the reasons we chose this property.
