We have no idea where the 4 star rating and price for this property comes from. The holiday didn't start off well after our encounter with a curt caretaker/cleaner called Rosemarie Larkin. On arrival, I simply asked the lady which button on the key fob opened the garage door and her response was "ohh come on" Not the kind of warm welcome I was expecting. I suggest Blue Chip keep her and her husband away from clients as their sour faces did not give the impression of a "happy ship"

The apartment itself had a stale odour and we had to buy a bottle of Febreeze to try and mask it.

Main points:

The balcony light did not work;
The Washing machine drawer was filthy;
There was food debris left in the freezer;
There carpet was marked in several places and poorly hoovered, so we re-hoovered it ourselves;
The woodwork and walls were marked;
The lounge curtains were ill fitting and had dirty hand marks on them;
We did not want to use the cooker extractor fan as it was filthy and covered in grease;
Our slippers stuck to the filthy kitchen floor;
Utensils were unclean and the cooker hob knobs were unclean;
Kitchen doors and chairs were unclean;
We could barely fit our Golf car in the garage. One of us had to stand inside guiding the driver in or out to avoid catching the garage door frame. We were told the car had to be parked inside to avoid blocking the neighbouring garage entrance. This put us off taking the car out;
The apartment was very sparse and not at all homely.

In a nutshell, filthy and very overpriced.

Due to all of the above we decided to leave 2 days early.

Could not sit in the lounge and look out to the harbour. The apartment faces north, so no sunlight came in. Why have a north facing balcony?

This complex is situated by the Brixham Marina and the house we stayed in was so comfortable, clean and quiet and had stunning views across the bay from the lounge and bedroom. Within walking distance to the breakwater and the harbour and the town.

We stayed here for 5 days in Feb 2017. This is a wonderfully bright and well appointed apartment. Planned initially for my inlaws who have mobility issues this 3rd floor property was ideal.
Clean & bright throughout, tidy, good amenties, with wonderful views over the harbour. The apartment is located within a flat wlak to the town centre which makes it ideal for those with challenging mobility.
The beds are very comfortable, rooms spacious, plenty of storage.
The living space has plenty of seating, including reclining chairs.
The small kitchen has all you need and a lovely selection of biscuits and tea & coffee were provided by the letting agent.
Good WiFi, 2 free parking spaces.

Fabulous to the point that we are returning later in the year.

Moorings reach is a great place to stay. It is close to the town and marina and there are good walks in either direction. The apartment we stayed in was immaculate and well furnished with fantastic views across the marina and Torbay.
We have stayed at Moorings Reach five times , all in different apartments or town houses and would highly recommend them.

Booked 57 Moorings Reach for a few days but on the day before the holiday I had an urgent hospital appointment so we couldn't go. Got in touch with the owners told them the situation and see if we could possibly postpone the holiday and book another time when I could give them a date we could go. But they said no I would have to cancel and book again but to add insult to injury they said they would give me a discount on my next booking but I bet it isn't a £330.0 discount the money they have already had. So definitely will not be booking No 57 Moorings Reach again.

Stayed: March 2017, travelled as a couple
