“Did not want to leave”

The photos for this property do not do it justice. It is a truly lovely apartment with amazing views. We also had brilliant service from the lovely girl who was looking after and cleaning the apartment in the owners absence. The beds are super comfy as are the couches. Just loved the extras such as the books, which we made good use of during our week. The entrance is tired, but when you cross the threshold, the flat is wonderful. The modern bathroom is to die for with a shower that is super powerful - and as we were walking the entire South West Coast Path, was very welcome at the end of our daily 14 mile trek!
I was a bit surprised that basics like milk wasn't provided as was the case with most of the cottages we stayed in. But the cleanliness of this place was far more important to me than the milk! This was the cleanest cottage we stayed in during our stay - but this was more to be said for the owner and cleaner than Blue Chip (which also supplied us with the filthiest cottage of our entire 3 month trip).
I would love to come back to Plymouth some day and I would absolutely stay in this lovely apartment with its lovely view and great location.

Many thanks for your feedback regarding Drakes View, Plymouth, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Following discussion with the Owner, we are pleased to say that the building’s communal areas are now in the process of being redecorated, which should improve this for the future. It is also the owner’s normal routine to provide fresh milk and biscuits upon arrival, as well as a selection of drinks and kitchen staples, and they are sorry for the omission for your visit. At Drakes View, and Blue Chip Holidays in general, all feedback from our guests is appreciated. We would be very happy to hear from you with any further suggestions, so we can make sure that our high standards are maintained or improved. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Blue Chip Holidays.

“Superb Accomodation With Unrivaled View”

Us three old salts stayed here for the Remembrance Day weekend. This is a truly lovely, warm and superbly appointed apartment in a fantastic location.

The place is fitted out to a very high standard and is one of the most well appointed places I've ever had the pleasure of staying in.

The kitchen was a cornucopeia of utensils and kitchenware; all the equipment you'll ever need contained within a high quality, modern kitchen.

The main bedroom is huge and beautifully furnished with a great big bed and big, flat screened TV.

Central heating is combi fired and kept us all warm from the moment we stepped in.

Second bedroom is small but certainly adequate - and the view out across the Sound is stunning. I lay in bed Saturday morning and watched a frigate navigate around Drake's Island. What price such delights?!

The front room is roomy and furnished beautifully; again, it enjoys superb views of the Hoe and Sound.

The lady owner had left us an instructional welcome note which let us know there was tea, coffee and milk provided for us - together with some complimentary beers! Remarkable and yet indicative of the love and care that has gone into this wonderful venture.

Outstanding on every level. Highly recommended.

“A very clean, comfortable apartment in ideal position”
Reviewed November 13, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

A lovely place very comfy, great bed, loved the window seat looking out to sea across the Hoe. Could walk to barbican, or shopping centre easily. Plymouth has lots of really good restaurants, once we had arrived and parked the car. Did not use it again the whole week as so much to see and do within easy reach walking, had a lovely holiday can't wait to go back .
