“Good location, average accommodation”
Reviewed 16 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Location great, 200m to the beach and a lovely park a very small walk away. Good parking to the front of the property. Found the accommodation average, a bit tired in terms of decoration and the bathroom is falling apart a bit - the shower attachment kept falling off and various parts of the bathroom fell off. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels, nice touch with the bread and jams on arrival. Just overall wasn't a brilliant standard but was ok.

Thank you for your review in May, we are very pleased that you enjoyed the holiday overall and found the location great. It is disappointing that the property didn't live up to your expectations and we are very keen to make sure all our guests have the best possible experience at High Gables. It appears there were some features in the Bathroom that needed attention but other than that the Bathroom is of a very high standard which I hope you would agree. We always encourage guests to feedback with any issues they encounter so we can rectify them immediately. After your comments we checked and replaced the light lenses and replaced the toilet roll holder. Many thanks once again for choosing High Gables and for your comments.

The apartment was perfect for us as a family to use as a base. It was well equipped enough to keep the children occupied and spacious enough to give us time to relax of an evening.
It had all the necessary items we needed and has a great position to see out.
The old steam train was great and the children enjoyed waving at all the passengers out of the window. Do not be worried by the train it is a little line and only runs in the day occasionally. You are not on a main line and you can't hear it at all.
Overall we really enjoyed this apartment and if we decide to come to Devon again we would certainly consider it as a base for our holiday.

The only downside was trying to pack all the toys in the car that the children "Won" in the amusements.

Overall a great little find.
