  • "We really enjoyed our break in 3 Coram Tower."

    It's a great appartment in a wonderful spot, and we found almost everything as advertised or better. The kitchen is well equipped, the smart TVs + good wi-fi were much appreciated, as was the range of maps and local guide books. The only slight negative is the lack of reliable hot water - we tried to use the boost button in the boiler but it doesn't seem to do a lot! Fortunately the electric shower in the en-suite allowed us to have hot showers, so we weren't too concerned about it. We would definitely come again!

    So pleased you enjoyed your stay. I shall have to look into the hot water for the second bathroom so thank you for letting me know. The en suite shower does help. Appreciate your feedback. Property Owner

  • "3 Coram Tower apartment was clean, comfortable and had a lovely view of the sea and Charmouth in the distance."

    It was only a 8min walk to get to the shops or sea front. Perfect location. Only downside was the main shower water heating seamed a bit hit and miss, as even after putting it on the 60min “boost”, it didn’t seem to get hot after waiting 40mins. Though the second electric shower was available, so is a first world problem and didn’t really prevent us showering. We would visit and stay there again.

    Good to hear you enjoyed your time at the apartment. We work hard to get it right. I will have to review the hot water situation. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Our fourth stay at number 3, lovely apartment with great views and near to the centre of Lime and feels like our second home now."

    One small downside this time was noise from the apartment above, sounded like they were continually moving furniture around day and night, hopefully this was just a one off.

    Dear Rob Thank you (again!) for your lovely feedback and I do hope the noise upstairs was a one off. I'm glad you feel at home at No 3, I do my best to make it feel home from home. Your thoughts are very much appreciated. Best wishes Victoria Farmer Property Owner

  • "We could not have been happier with the apartment and its facilities."

    Its proximity to the town was an added bonus. We were very lucky to have 3 lovely sunny days and enjoyed the stunning views morning and evening from the sitting room window. Minor niggle was that the Sky broadband went down on a regular basis but the fault lies with Sky and not the property. We would like to make mention of Mark who works for Lyme Bay Property's who we met by chance on arrival, he was so helpful and really went out of his way to ensure that everything as easy as possible for us.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments, glad the weather helped. We try very hard to provide a home from home, it's rewarding with this feedback. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Our third time here and we love the apartment with great views, apartment is nicely decorated and is perfect for exploring Lyme."

    An electric car charger point would be nice in the allocated car space, though there are chargers in the car part opposite, seven in total with 3 being fast chargers, they can be busy over the weekend.

    Thank you Rob for the feedback, glad you enjoyed the break and really appreciate the feedback on my place. Coram Tower owners have discussed charging points but because of the ones at Holmbush car-park have, for the time being decided to leave it. However, it's good to know that busy times make it challenging, I'll put a note up in the hall to let guests know of this. It will probably be a matter of time before we have to consider charging points at Coram Tower - you have to move with the times. Best wishes and thanks again. Victoria Property Owner

  • "3 Coram Tower is a well furnished and comfortable flat."

    It has everything that you could need for a week long stay in Lyme Regis. Having two bathrooms is an advantage. The views across to Charmouth and beyond to Portland Bill are stunning when the weather is clear. Unlike the last reviewer we had no issues with the hot water (you can always boost the water in the tank with the push of a button or boil a kettle if it's just for a bowl of washing up water). We have stayed in other flats in Coram Tower and this one is fabulous.

    We're glad that you enjoyed the views across the bay, and found the apartment fulfilled all of your needs. Property Owner

  • "Unfortunately the water was not very hot for bathing or showering throughout our stay."

    It did rain for some days and water was coming in through the kitchen window alongside cold air. (Did call lyme bay holidays and they did come out to put a temporary fix on this and adjust water temp…please note water temp did not improve). Beds were uncomfortable which resulted in many wakeful nights. Because of the issues above I would not stay here again. Beautiful place beyond this…if the above was addressed it would have resulted in a very pleasant stay.

    Dear Guest Many thanks for your feedback - all feedback is good feedback. I'll review the hot water situation as this hasn't happened before and both hot water systems aren't very old. I'll be visiting shortly and I'll get this looked at. I will secure the window also - the trouble with listed buildings and particularly with Coram Tower - any detailed interference requires lots of permission - but I can get the window sealed and the latch to work a little better. The trouble with mattresses does often come down to personal choice, for some guests they're too hard, others too soft and so on - it's difficult to resolve and again they are good mattresses with some time left in them. I hope, apart from the points raised that you enjoyed your time in Lyme Regis. With all good wishes for 2023. Victoria Property Owner

  • "Beautifully presented flat, ideal for us 3 adults."

    Plenty of kitchen utensils, plates, etc. Made use of jigsaws and plentiful info on local area. Lovely sea view from lounge. Flat remained reasonably cool on hottest ever day. Quiet bedrooms at back for good nights sleep. Good location in Grade II listed building. Only downside was exhausting steep climb to & from seafront and shops.

  • "A really lovely apartment and good facilities."

    Very convenient for walking to and from town or driving out. It is great having a parking slot, very unusual for Lyme. This is not our first time staying here and will definitely book here again when coming to Lyme Regis. Also, thanks for holding our deposit over the past two and a half years during the Covid period. It was much appreciated.

Upon arrival, you will be captivated by the stunning architecture of this property, making it appear very much as though you are staying in a castle!

With this property having such a great living area, you will not be surprised that it offers two equally as wonderful bedrooms, starting with a double with paintings embellishing the walls, wooden flooring, plentiful storage and a handy en-suite, meaning that there will be no queues for a refreshing shower before heading off to the beach.
