“loved our stay in Lyme Regis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

Comfortable family accomodation, very centrally located. excellent value for money. Very friendly owners who made us feel like family. only regret is not trying the cooked breakfast - the owner is an ex-chef. Will definately be returning. We stayed for a week

We stayed at the Gables for a week over the Easter period and had a wonderful time. The holiday flat was lovely, very clean and tidy, all bedding provided also. The flat really was home from home,extremely comfortable and had everything we needed even down to Tea/coffee and bisciuts! The Breakfast we had there was amazing, would highly recommend that!
The gables is in an ideal location in Lyme Regis, we love staying there and would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of visiting Lyme Regis. Sam and Craig, who run the Gables were very welcoming and always made sure we had everything we needed during our stay! Will definately be going again!

Spent a lovely holiday at The Gables! The apartment is lovely and cosy and feels homely..and it reflects the atmosphere of Lyme Regis itself !.. 2 minutes walk from the beach and stores! The people renting it out were very helpfull and if you need anything, you only need to ask and it is taken care off right away! Lovely people! Visited The Gables 5 times now and every time in another apartment and they were all adorable! Everyting you need is provided including a seperate washing room to do your laundry! Greetings from The Netherlands! :) Marleen and Phillip

Room Tip: Flat 10 has a great view!

W e spent 2 nights at the Gables on a short break and cannot understand any of the bad comments made recently. You only have to read the reports those people have made on other places to see that they would moan, wherever they were !
We were met by Craig and Sam, who only took over the running of the Gables late last year. Craig took us upstairs to our apartment which was flat 3.
The apartment was clean and spacious, comprising a kitchen , living room, bedroom and bathroom. There were complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits in the kitchen and as it was nearing Easter, some cream Easter eggs ! The apartment were very well equipped and we were pleased with our choice.
The apartment was reasonably priced and breakfast could be included in the downstairs breakfast room if you wanted to book it. However, as we are mainly cereal, orange juice and tea people – the amenities of our apartment suited us fine.
The Gables is ideally situated for the sea front, shops and restaurants. For us, it was a place to leave our car in the off road free car park and get out and about walking and exploring !
As far as restaurants are concerned, we had a fabulous meal at the Jurassic Fish and Steak Restaurant at the top of Silver Street. The scallops and prawn stir fry was excellent !
Another great meal we had was at the Largigi Thai restaurant on Marine Parade. Ask the waiter about the chilli strength of the meal though, as some are very hot !
Craig and Sam were very friendly and helpful and gave us good advice about local places to see.
We would certainly recommend the Gables to our family and friends and If we were visiting Lyme Regis again,we would certainly book and stay at the Gables

Room Tip: Aprtment 3 is spacious and has a view over the rooftops to the sea !

Myself and a group of divers from the midlands stayed here for 2 nights.
I deal for groups offering kitchen, bedrooms, sitting room, separate toilet and bathroom.
We also had breakfast early which was excellent.
The owners were very friendly and accomodating.
These appartments suited us perfectly.
Location is excellent, prices reasonable.
This is not luxury but ideal on a tight budget.

Would i stay and recommend these apartments definately yes for groups like us.

However this would not suit my wife who like top quality hotels.

Room Tip: Speak to the owners very nice people.

Just returned from a 5 night stay at The Gables. Accommodation very clean and comfortable. Excellent location, close to all amenities, but nice and quiet (opposite Church), my apartment even had a sea view! Craig and Sam (the owners) pleasant and helpful.

Went to the Gables this weekend, this time we decided to go "off peak". We had an even better stay than last time and we enjoyed it then!
The apartments are lovely clean, bright and cosy. We had Apartment two which sleeps 4, we took our 2 young children and they didn't want to come home.
The Gables is a short walk from the beach and many good restaurants and an amazing chip shop, just what the doctor ordered!
I would say the Gables is ideal for young and old, the apartments are not far from the sea front for those who can't walk far and for the young you can spend all day trying to find your own full sized fossil or just relax on the beach. There's plenty to do and the Gables have some equipment that can be borrowed for a visit to the beach to build sand castles.
In the evening we went back to our apartment, the kids borrowed a DVD from the collection the owners had on site while we unpacked the day, then a bath and bed for them while my husband and I relaxed for the evening in our "home from home apartment".
The new owners are a lovely couple who are very friendly and helpful.
I really don't know why you'd want to stay anywhere else, the rooms are reasonalbly priced and the location is very quiet and peaceful, the apartments are nicely spaced and even at high season you don't really meet other guests! Bonus!
I think the people who have given this place a bad review in the past must have stayed somewhere else or maybe just want something for nothing - if you want it to be like home then stay at home!
