We stayed in The Mews March this year, it was amazing.
The views from all floors could not be beaten,
Every room had excellent decor, from furniture to fittings and accessories.
We had contact with the owner and found him a very pleasant person.
We will definetly be booking again, hopefully in the next few days.
During our stay we was constantly texting and forwarding pics to our family telling them how amazing everything was.
When we entered through the apartment my first comment was, "its like being in Monaco"
What a wonderful view and accommodation to match.

“Superb Apartment with Stunning Views”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

The apartment is an absolutely stunning "upside down house" with a view over the bay from the lounge window which is second to none. There are also stunning views from the lower bedrooms.

The location of the apartment is excellent with the bay / beach directly down to the West outside the apartment and harbour / main town around to the East. Where the apartment and neighbouring properties are sited is regarded as the best position / views in Torquay.

Covered parking is also allocated to the apartment immediately outside the main door.

The facilities are finished to the highest 'show home" standards, and are immaculate throughout and very well maintained.

Both the middle floor master bedroom and the lower floor twin bedroom have superbly finished en-suite bathrooms with a spa / jacuzzi bath in the master en-suite and a power / rainfall shower in the twin bedroom en-suite.

Storage throughout the apartment is plentiful with walk in wardrobes, storage cupboards and a well equipped utility room.

There are superb touches throughout the apartment which are well thought out - a key safe at the front door, a very secure safe inside the apartment, mood lighting in the lounge, ipod docking stations, powerful wifi and flat screen TV in the bedrooms in addition to the lounge.

In summary, a superb top notch apartment in a location second to none, which myself, my wife and kids enjoyed immensely and to which we would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone.

The December 2014 "complaints" that I see on tripadvisor are not for the apartment that i recognise. They are from someone with unrealistic expectations or malicious comments from someone with no discerning taste whatsoever.

I would think the latter.

“lovely house with fabulous views!!!!”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I am writing this review in response to the previous review left. me and my husband have also booked a number of properties in torquay with bluechip over the last few years, in our opinion our stay at the Riviera mansions ( the mews ) in sept 2014 was a most enjoyable stay, the first thing you notice on opening the front door was THE STUNNING VEIWS ACROSS THE HARBOUR AND SEA, the property was nice and clean, we did have a problem with the wifi so we text the owner and he came straight away as he informed us he only lived next door, he did sort out the wifi and even said that if we had any more problems to let him know and he would pop the modem round to a guy he uses in a local shop, any how what ever he did fixed the problem so we text the owner and told him everything was fine with wifi now and thanks for his help. our bed was lovely and comfy, clean bedding as well, we stayed in the double room. the Jacuzzi bath was a dream, and we had no issues with the lighting, all in all we had a lovely break in a very modern house with the added bonus of the stunning views! and every mod con you could think of, would highly recommend. we would have no hesitation in booking again. already recommended to family and friends.

“Spectacular views and property”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in May 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed for one week in May 2014, the property was spotlessly clean,everything was lovely and new, the spa bath was a luxury, and easy to use. The kitchen was well equipped . There was a problem with a leak in the laundry room ceiling and I notified the owner who texted me to let me know he had sorted it, it was due to a pipe in the dishwasher. We would not hesitate to book this property again.
The only point I could make is that, it would have been nice to have met the owner at some point during the stay, it would then have seemed more personal as we were staying in his holiday property. We have since recommended this property to many people.

“Immaculate Apartment, fabulous views, very well equipped and spotlessly clean.”

person found this review helpful

My husband and I have stayed in holiday lets all over the country for decades and this has to be one of, if not the best, we have ever had the pleasure of renting. The apartment is beautifully appointed, immaculately clean and very well equipped. We found everything to be in good working order and had no difficulty in operating any of the appliances, fixtures and fittings. The views from the panoramic windows over the bay are stunning both night and day and when I sent photos to friends and family, most thought that we must be in Italy or on the French Riviera!

We will definitely be returning to this apartment as we visit the area fairly regularly and can not imagine ever finding anywhere more pleasurable to stay.

“Fantastic place to stay.”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Having just read the last review about this amazing apartment I just had to reply and add my views
We stayed here April 2014 for one week and not only made the right choice but did not want to go home ! Firstly the views are the most spectacular I would say in the whole of Torquay.The Apartment itself is absolutely stunning We never stopped saying Wow as we walked around the place. The kitchen was very well equipped and the bedrooms both with en suite were very spacious and comfy Our boys 12/15 were both very impressed with having their own walk out patio to sit and read and take in the views. We all slept very well on the large comfy beds and instructions for the Jacuzzi were in a drawer in the bathroom,which was a great novelty to us as we had never been in one before ! The walk into Torquay was steep but steady for most visitors to manage (a taxi was only £4 if needed) and when in the town there was plenty to do including bus and boat trips.We did not move our car from its own private safe parking place for most of the week.I cannot fault the cleanliness in this apartment and I have high standards in my own home ! Yes the internet was very intermittent but useable but we did not go on holiday to be on the computers and phone all day We went for a relaxing break and that is what we got.I cannot stress how highly we would recommend this beautiful apartment to anyone and everyone.

“Stunning views & very comfortable”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed here at the end of November and had a very enjoyable autumn break. It's a great time of the year to enjoy torquay if you're lucky enough to get dry weather as its not full of tourists! The apartment is in a stunning location with great views over the bay below. The lounge was a delight to relax in & watch the world go by down below with a very comfy sofa & ambient lighting. If it was ours we would probably have blinds that could be pulled across the panoramic windows in the lounge if required & the wifi was unreliable but good 3G signal & so latter didn't matter much. Bedroom & en-suite were super with large walk-in wardrobe. Fairly easy walk down into torquay & off road parking was good as one or two places like this in torquay seem not to be able to offer that.
