“Lovely apartment-great location”
Reviewed January 18, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

This was a superb apartment in a fabulous location. We really enjoyed our stay. The steep staircases were OK for us (although would not attempt in high heels) but I would not recommend for elderly people. The Radio Dart café next to the apartment was a great place to get breakfast or a few drinks in the evening. We would definitely stay again but I haven't given it 5/5 because we did not have wifi for our stay and this was one of the reasons that we booked this apartment at this time. We raised this with Blue Chip and then with the Royal Castle hotel who manage the apartment locally on behalf of blue chip. Twice they said they would come out and fix it but they didn't turn up at all.. We waited in one day at the allotted time that they gave us, In the end we gave up as we only had a few days away and we wanted to make the most of it . I used the wifi in the Radio Dart café instead.

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed October 21, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We loved our stay at Merchants Rise, when we initially booked through Blue Chip they were very friendly and informative, we were already expecting the stairs to be steep, took us some time to get our belongings/shopping up the stairs (Definitely not suitable for elderly or small children). We collected our keys from the Hotel and again very helpful and friendly, the garage parking is great and only around the corner -the only difficulty was a car parked a little over the front of the garage which made it more difficult to get in!! The accommodation was perfect for our needs (we would usually like an outside area in summer), you cannot get anymore central than this, spotlessly clean and decorated to a high standard. You can hear the music until midnight from the bar below but it did not disturb us as we were the top apartment but maybe Merchants Rest the apartment below would be less peaceful! We are looking forward to staying here again .

“Treacherous stairs”

Book Merchants Rest instead if you can! Which is on one level and much more accessible. Merchants Rise apartment has three incredibly steep flights of spiral stairs, it feels quite claustrophobic and is very hard work to stay in! The owners have furnished and fitted it out to a very high standard and it's close to town. Eat all your meals at The Royal Castle which is superb!
