Drakes View

We recently stayed in Drakes view for four nights. This is a very spacious two bedroom apartment with the most amazing views over the hoe and Plymouth sound. It was spotless on arrival and very well equipped. It is a quiet location but you are close to the city centre and spoilt for choice with great restaurants. We would highly recommend this apartment over any of the local hotels.

Another great stay with Bluechip

This is the second apartment we have booked through Bluechip situated right on the Plymouth Hoe with great views of the Sound and surrounding countryside and enjoyed a very comfortable stay in a quality well appointed apartment.The apartment is very central to the main shopping area and the Barbican which has a number of very nice dining options within walking distance.

Christmas in Plymouth

Fantastic location - very easy to walk to Plymouth city centre and the Barbican. Spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Well equipped with everything we could have wished for. The Christmas decorations were a lovely touch. High quality fixtures and fittings - we would not hesitate to return to Drakes View.

Stopped at Drakes View for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The owner greeted us at the apartment to hand over the key and show us around. Complimentary tea/ coffee and some gorgeous biscuits were left for us too. The view over the Hoe and out to the sea was amazing. The apartment had everything we needed including a washer dryer, literally home from home. Can't wait until next year so we can book again.

We loved our stay at Drakes View. The apartment is so well situated for the town, Plymouth Gin Distillery, Barbican etc. The view from the apartment is wonderful - I spent quite some time just sitting in the window seat watching the world go by - fantastic!

We stayed at Drakes View at the end of July 2014. The property is excellent, and the views out of the windows at the front, and the location of the property right on the Hoe, are brilliant. One week wasn't long enough.

Drakes View, Plymouth

My husband and I spent a lovely week in this flat, which was very comfortable and had everything that we could possibly need. The view from the window in the lounge was spectacular and we enjoyed watching all the activity on the sea from rowing boats to the Brittany Ferry. We also had some lovely meals in the local restaurants. Being in our seventies, we did struggle a little with the four flights of stairs to the apartment, but by the end of the week, we did seem a little fitter!. All in all we had a great time.

Drakes view stay in plymouth.

We have booked self catering on a number of occasions. It has always been very easy to book with staff that are always pleasant and helpful. The apartments are always spotlessly clean and have all the home from home conforts and added extras such as c.d's and d.v.d's. I shall be booking my next break away with blue chip and I would happily recommend blue chip to my friends and family. Trina Banks.

Probably the best holiday property ever

As the title suggests, this is probably the best holiday property we've stayed at in the UK over 45 years of self-catering holidays. Everything went right from the moment we booked our holiday with Blue Chip, something which is very difficult to achieve in today's world. Blue Chip admin is excellent and we would certainly use them again if circumstances permit. Drakes View is equally top notch, given the unusual layout of the apartment. The rooms spread around the stair landing, but most are universally large and airy, with the exception of the kitchen which, although on the small side, is very well equipped and perfectly adequate. The outlook from the lounge is astounding with views across the Sound, we even thought we saw Francis Drake with his bag of bowls walking towards the bowling green, with a happy smile on his face. Who wouldn't be happy having the good fortune to spend time here. We even managed to keep fit on the flights of stairs leading to the apartment. Thank you Mrs Saunders and Blue Chip Holidays for giving us such a memorable holiday. Now I must go because I have a review to write for Trip Adviser.

Drakes View Experience

Had a recent 5 day stay at Drakes View which was amazing. The view from the property were astounding, and it was addictive to watch the comings and goings in the harbour. Very close to all the sights and the city centre and easy to reach by car - having a designated car space was great! We will certainly stay here again.

Beautiful apartment

Having just returned From a relaxing week staying at Drakes View apartment on Plymouth Hoe, I can honestly say what a beautiful apartment it is, everything you could possibly need for a relaxing week. The apartment has the most stunning views of Plymouth Hoe and Sound. The quality of the furnishings in the apartment are excellent, extremely clean and with a well equipped kitchen. Drakes view is ideally situated for visiting Plymouth, the Barbican and it's restaurants being a 10 minute walk. There are 4 flights of stairs up to the apartment, I only mention these as it could be a problem for the less fit, we had a wonderful week and hope to return soon.

We booked holiday at Drakes View in May, when we arrived at the apartment we couldn't believe how immaculate it was. All furnishings and fittings were perfect, and a fully equipped kitchen with top end appliances, and the beds were pure heaven. I would recommend Blue Chip Holidays to everyone, could not fault it on anything. 100% happy. Thank you for a truly lovely holiday. We will be booking next years very shortly.

We stayed 4 nights at Drakes view in early October. The flat is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen is well equipped. The bathroom has a powerful shower over a bath. We moved the dining table so we could eat with sea views. The views are splendid. the parking is very convenient. We would go again.
