Fabulous dog friendly place to stay
This is the second time we?ve stayed at the slipway. This time over Christmas week. The accommodation is very central, a stumble away from great pubs shops and restaurants. The private garden and Parking are a bonus and the apartment itself is fitted with beautiful, quality furniture and carefully chosen furnishings. It really is a home from home. We would recommend it to anyone great for dogs too!

Home away from home
Loved our stay in this cute cottage, conveniently situated across the road from the sea and close to shops, pubs and restaurants. There's a private garden across the road with a little table and chairs and a private parking space. You can find everything you'd expect to find at home here, including a smart TV with Sky and access to Netflix, etc., books to read and board games to play, so even on a rainy day you'll be comfortable and happy. Super clean throughout and comfy bed that you won't want to leave. Definitely recommend.

The slipway
Had a wonderful week with girlfriend and our dog. The slipway was very clean and comfortable. Great central location and a quaint little garden. Two really nice pubs 2 minutes walk ( the Turks head & the admiral benbow) both dog friendly.

Excellent position but disappointing apartment
On arrival all was good we found we had been left a lovely starter of bread, milk, eggs, butter, juice and a bottle of Prosecco. Initially this apartment looked lovely, kitchen area, bedding and towels clean.Unfortunately on closer inspection the pillows were absolutely disgusting and the shower filthy, the grout and shower hose were covered in disgusting black mould, which my wife had to clean before use. Also very dusty and nothing had been moved to clean, several spiders webs showing under couches and furniture and several wires were lying about attached to extensions. Although this is advertised for 4 there is no way 4 people could stay here comfortably and only 2 bath towels provided, as there is no w/machine we had to use a local laundrette. Only 2 of us and I had to leave my suitcase in the living room as there was no room in the bedroom. The wardrobe was very damp and musty and had black mould on the wall, it was full with spare quilt, pillows, ironing board, iron and vacuum. The windows in the living area were painted shut so if we wanted fresh air we had to leave the door open, not great as road was very busy. Also one reason we booked here was the advertised garden but it was unusable as it was unkempt and the furniture very old and filthy. This property could be great but requires a deep clean and re-painted and the garden lanscaped.

Fab place to stay in an excellent location. Very comfy and homely with everything we needed and more. We would definitely stay again.
