  • "This was our fourth stay at this lovely property."

    It is very comfortable and clean, and very well equipped with everything you need, and a fantastic welcome hamper is always waiting. We love the sea views! It is perfect as a base to explore Essex and further into Suffolk. We loved the zoo at Colchester, Colchester Castle, the Naze and the seafront at Frinton. We will be back again next year.

  • "We had booked a three-day break but arrived to find that the flat had not been serviced after the last visitors."

    It took many frustrating phone calls to finally get cleaners to arrive. This left us very angry and very disappointed. Not the relaxing break we were hoping for. In addition, visitors were greeted at the entrance by a sign recommending that they should not stand there because tiles had been falling from the roof! It is a comfortable and well-positioned flat let down by poor maintenance and organisation.

  • "Property was lovely, great location and well presented with some nice touches."

    However there was a lot of noise from the other residents that meant we didn’t get much sleep which impacted on our break. Only other criticism is that the front door wasn’t overly secure. So despite all the good things about this property we wouldn’t stay here again.

    It is a beautiful flat with every comfort provided for. The views are incomparable and having had such good weather the sunrises and sunsets were glorious. The welcome basket of useful items was a great surprise and much appreciated. The owner could not have been more helpful. All in all a first rate holiday experience, thank you so much.

  • "This is a beautifully decorated flat, with an exceptional position in Frinton."

    The flat has an excellent sea view from all rooms. There is a pleasant garden and seating area outside. The beach is directly accessible and just 5 minutes away.The kitchen is well equipped. I strongly recommend!

  • "Flat 1 Cambridge Court is stylish, comfortable, clean and very well equipped."

    Everything needed for a break away is provided. We liked sitting outside the flat in the sun enjoying the view to the sea. The flat is a pleasant walk away from the high street for coffee or a meal. The path down to the beach is just across the road where there are rows of beach huts seemingly for miles in each direction. The Nase at Walton is just up the coast. The architecture of Frinton on Sea is worth a visit for the many Edwardian and modernist houses built in early 20th century. We enjoyed visits to Grayson Perry’s House of Essex, the location of Constable’s Haywain painting at Flatford and the places of interest in Colchester. Altogether we had a very pleasant trip.

  • "A delightful property."

    Warm and welcoming. The property is not huge but has everything you need and more. The weather was awful when we arrived, cold and wet, but the property was warm and cosy. There was also some welcomed groceries which saved us gong straight back out in the wet. The property is very tastefully decorated and really cosy. It is very clean and the bed in particular was comfortable, we slept so well. It was a shame we booked so late in the year and could not take advantage of the outside space. We could imagine sitting out the front of the house with a coffee with the sea view and watching the world go by, maybe next time! It is in a very convenient position. Within walking distance of the town with plenty of shops to meet all your needs and with plenty of cafes and places to eat. Also very convent to the beach, just across the road, with a nice flat footway, promenade . Whilst there is no parking in the property grounds there was plenty of free parking on the roadside. A wonderful stay. Hopefully one day we will return.

  • "Superbly appointed accommodation, in a very sought after location and within close proximity to the beach."

    Quality furnishings, pillows and towels also. If the weather is fine the resort is inundated with day trippers, as it was Sunday and Monday of this week, and this causes parking issues and for local businesses, trying to deal with Covid restrictions, some issues. However the resort returns to tranquility once the rush abates later in the evening. Some very good eateries available in the town. ***You may publish this feedback but use only ‘Peter’ in the publication***

    Tastefully decorated, nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. So comfortable I would recommend a stay here to anyone. My favourite thing, sitting during the winter in the warm sunshine having breakfast on the patio, looking out at endless sea. Its close to the town, and if you like walking you can find footpaths along the coast on your doorstep to neighbouring towns and nature reserves. A fantastic relaxing break.

  • "The accommodation far exceeded our expectations."

    The taste and interior design of the property was creative, comfortable and cosy, enabling us to immediately feel at home by the sea. We were welcomed with nice touches such as a generous food basket, dairy items, Egyptian cotton towels, slippers, sewing kit, shower caps and the most lovely smelling soaps and moisturisers - even the shower head had a water softener attachment, which worked a treat. Every facility was at hand including board games, the latest heating technology, coffee maker and audio/visual equipment including a fantastic curved 4K TV with Netflix, in fact the host kindly upgraded our system with a Bose soundbar during our stay. The host is a true professional and understands exactly what a customer wants and needs to relax during their holiday. We’re beyond impressed - the views from the master bedroom and living room have to be seen to be believed - simply, if you want to be amazed and stay in the most luxurious environment in one of the best seaside towns in the UK, then choose this flat in won’t be disappointed!

  • "The flat was very comfortable, well presented and clean."

    The immediate area was quiet and attractive, and Frinton itself was a pleasant environment. It was nice to be able to walk to the main shopping street, which was about 10 minutes from the flat. The flat was generally suitable for visitors with limited mobility, with easy ground-floor access. The only slight negative in that respect were some inevitable minor compromises in the galley kitchen. The only other very slight negative was the absence of side lighting in the main room. A standard lamp or a focused side light would be greatly valued by those with impaired vision. Overall I would rate 1 Cambridge Court well above average. I was also grateful to the property manager for his swift attention to a minor request we made.
