Excellent Apartment - Disappointing Resort
First the positives -Kittiwake is a spacious apartment with some lovely features. It appears to be managed well and was spotlessly clean on our arrival . The pretty flowers and pint of milk in the fridge were much appreciated. It has the benefit of sea views and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and looking out to sea. The apartment looked better internally than the photos in the advert and appears to have recently been redecorated and new leather sofas purchased. Some of the neighbours were a little noisy , particularly late at night and early morning , but this did not escalate into a major problem.
However, in our opinion, Minehead as a resort is pretty dire. It was akin to 'the land that time forgot' and for the most part seems to cater for the guests at the Holiday camp when they venture out . Minehead's saving grace is the steam railway, which enabled us to leave this grotty resort without having to drive.
We went in to town on our first evening at 6.30pm and a young man and woman, both drunk,were openly fighting in the street - and there were lots of other drunks in the immediate vicinity and outside the bars . The better end of the resort is certainly towards the harbour.
We ended up spending most of our holiday in North Devon and just using the apartment as a base to sleep, which was not our original intention.
It's a shame really because the apartment was so nice . If it was in a different resort we would have no hesitation in staying there again - however we have no desire to ever visit Minehead again. The apartment deserves the 4 stars we have awarded it but wish to make clear that the rating is for the apartment and most certainly not for this drab, tired resort .
We like to visit new places as often as possible and our first time in Minehead has definitely been made more enjoyable by this stunning apartment.
Beautiful features, modern with some original features very light and airy and best of all a balcony well positioned to enjoy the sea views.
Our first night we left the windows open and fell asleep to the sound of crashing waves, also a joy to wake up to!
Would recommend Kittiwake to anyone thinking of visiting Minehead
Comfortable and clean apartment. Nice view from the balcony. Good local pubs and restaurants within walking distance. A good base to visit the area.
Wonderful location. Fantastic views. Loads to do. We did not want to leave.
We had such a lovely peaceful stay at Kittiwake. Fabulous to be so near the water too. Kittiwake was very comfortable and just the right size for myself and my two children. We slept really well.
