  • "Absolutely loved our stay!"

    Had our 2 year old with us for the week and couldn't have been more suitable, would defiantly return and have already been looking at booking up for next year. The only one thing that we would change is the mattress in the main bedroom, other than that it was perfect and would have extended our stay had it have been available!

  • "Really well-appointed accommodation, with all the things you need for a pleasant stay in Torquay, whatever the weather."

    The welcome pack and info booklet are nice and contain a wealth of useful information about the property and the locality. The property genuinely felt like home, and I settled in very easily. The location is great, some might struggle with the hills and steps around Torquay, but that isn't exclusive to this property. It is very centrally located for lots of the local attractions and shops. Only a 20-minute walk to Babbacombe Downs, less than 10 minutes down to the shops at Torquay and the harbour area. The property has one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, so perfect for a family of four, or for a couple, there is also enough seating in the lounge area for the above too. Would definitely stay again.

    Hi Simon, Many thanks for your comments, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Martingale and hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Darryl & Lisa Property Owner

  • "Great location for exploring Torquay and the surrounding area."

    Had no issues finding the place or getting in (key number was fine). Nice to have an off road parking space, enough room for a 4x4. Plenty of space in the house. Nice to have a kitchen with empty cupboards to put things in and a good sized fridge. Also nice to have decent size mugs for a proper cup of tea. Lovely house to to stay in, if I was to suggest one change it would be the double mattress.

  • "The address is in correct the entance to the property is in grafton road not upper braddons hill."

    In correct code for the key safe after finally entering the property only to find bathroom tap not attached leaking and water shut off then a 3 hour wait for a plumber to come to fix a new tap on day two had difficulty getting into the property due to poorly maintained stable-door which which was really hard to open and close also toilet seat does not fit properly very dissapointed with you and owner response to these problems when we communitated wiyh you

    The house was beautiful and clean, the only minor criticism is that the quilts on single beds not suitable for adults only reach 1/2 way up The house is in a good position with all the mod cons you need Thank you for letting us share your lovely home

  • "The cottage is beautiful, well equipped and comfortable."

    We were given one towel each, we could have done with more. The cottage is 10+ minutes walk to the nearest shop, the description does not state that this is quite steep, therefore this would be unsuitable for less able people.

    Hi John, Thank you for your kind comments and feedback with your stay at Martingale in Torquay last year. We take on board what you are saying reference the hand towels and have since increased this. We hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "Martingale was absolutely beautiful."

    Situated in an extremely quiet street, we never heard a thing outside day or night, yet within easy walking distance of Torquay, albeit with a steep hill involved. The house was immaculate inside and had everything we needed for our stay. Everything was furnished to a very high standard and we absolutely loved staying there.

    The cottage was very clean and has a welcoming feel as you walked in. All the fittings were way above my expectations, pleasantly surprised. I would recommend this cottage wholeheartedly.
