Fantastic Apartment

Fantastic apartment, it is so luxurious and warm. Beautiful sunny weather for several days meant that we could sit on the balcony in December. This was a great place to spend Christmas with the family. Thank you for preparing the apartment and for being so helpful and supportive when we didn't even think we would make it. We hope to be back.

Ocean Shangri La, Devon

We stayed for a week at this apartment to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday with our two adult daughters. Our friends also joined us half way through the week. The whole experience of booking and arrival was trouble free and there was a helpful and friendly housekeeper on hand for any problems. Our apartment was located in an ideal position with spectacular views across the whole of Torbay. The accommodation was very spacious with all mod cons and Wi-Fi which allowed our daughter to study for her exams! The bedrooms had plenty of storage and the beds were comfortable with linen supplied. There were three bathrooms which meant there were no queues in the morning. We would definitely recommend this apartment.

Wonderful apartment, fantastic views

After a long journey from Cheshire, it was lovely to come to a wonderful apartment - fantastic views, great balcony - great to have parking too. Thank you Mrs Moss for the welcome pack - much appreciated! Weather has been great apart from the last day. My son loved the lounge and called it the "Kings and Queens Room"!

Ocean Shangri-La, Bay Fort Mansions

Due to illness, we could not go on a planned holiday in France. Things got slightly better and having very successfully used Blue Chip Holidays in the past, we searched there site for a last minute availability.We could not believe our luck. We wanted an apartment in Torquay overlooking the bay. Previously we had used one of their Masts apartments and now we found an apartment in the building next door. Wonderful size, furnishings, balcony and with it's own private garage.Absolutely what we wanted and with only one week to go, we phoned on the Sunday and made the booking. Everything went like clockwork, even with the short period before take over, all paperwork arrived immediately and contact with the key holder made a very easy arrival. Within minutes of our taking over the apartment we had a welcoming text from the management company, wishing us a good holiday and giving contact details again should there be any problems. We were so sad on having to leave and will certainly return. Thanks to all the team at Blue Chip Holidays.

Ocean Shangri-La, Bay Fort Mansions

If you are looking for a quality apartment with excellent views over Torbay harbour and beaches, look no further. The apartment is tastefully decorated, well stocked with equipment, although the kitchen is very small. Full sun on the beautiful balcony from midday. Lots to do throughout the area in all weathers, but if weather is inclement games were provided in the apartment.

Thank Gloria for everything and thanks to your lovely husband, enjoyed talking to you both. Everything that everyone has said is true! We will be back next year, we all loved every minute!

3-Generations: All very happy!!

We always have a week at the beach during the summer. This year, we were 2 x 18 year olds (daughter and friend), 2 x adults, and grandma at 91. The flat was perfect for us all. There were twin beds for the girls and grandma had the choice of 2 walk-in showers. Although not advertised as accessible, this flat is perfectly suitable for someone of limited mobility (grandma walks with a crutch). The entrance off the street means no stairs. There is a high threshold to the terrace, but manageable after a bit of practice. Meals, morning coffee, and evening drinks on the terrace were wonderful. The views are magnificent. Everything was meticulously clean. The black-out blinds and shutters meant you could really sleep as long as you wanted without the sun coming in (teenagers). Binoculars provided, in case you forget your own. We enjoyed watching the boats/ferries going in and out of the harbour. There was plenty to do in the area and something for all ages: train/ferry to Dartmouth, cream tea at the Singing Kettle, boat ride back (saw pods of dolphins), walk along the seafront, ride on the big wheel, Broadsands Beach (very accessible, worth the drive), kayaks, paddle boards (first time), fish & chips at Hanbury's, and the flumes (6:30 pm on Friday = No queues). We'd definitely return to Torquay and stay at Shangri-La. Families with small children might prefer one of the other beaches in the area, but they're all within easy driving distance.

Ocean Shangri-La, Bay Fort Mansions

I holidayed with Blue Chip two years ago in Newquay and I was impressed. Last year I used a different company and was disappointed compared to Blue Chip on using them again this year I was not disappointed. The service provided from the booking procedure through the key collection and the support whilst on holiday was first class. The property itself in Torquay was 5 Star.I would recommend anyone to use Blue Chip and I certainly will in the future. My only regret is that they do not have properties in more areas of the country.

Wonderful holiday apartment with fantastic views.

This is an beautiful apartment which is situated within an older property directly overlooking the marina and Torbay looking out to Brixham. Being an older building it has good height in the rooms and this is filled with glass windows with the view. The apartment has sufficient room space for six people and the main double bedroom and another double bedroom have the great views. The apartment was very clean and with three bathrooms (two en-suite)there was one for each bedroom. A great plus is having the private lock-up garage with an electric door almost adjacent. The whole apartment is on the street level. This is my third year holidaying in this apartment and I will shortly be booking my fourth.

Wonderful Apartment

We've had a lovely week in Torquay, made perfect by staying in this wonderful apartment. We didn't end out every night as we were happy to spend a few night here watching the view and TV. Prezzo in town is best for a takeaway and The Elephant restaurant is very nice, the best around in my opinion.
