Excellent views

Excellent views over the harbour and out to sea. Comfortable beds and sofas. Well equipped kitchen. Two minor issues ( bin collection and blocked drain) which were soon sorted out by carrie at bixham holiday homes. Excellent customer service.

Stay at Pirates Rest - July 2017

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a gorgeous house - everything we needed was provided and the location was superb! The views were stunning - bustling harbour by day and fabulous sunsets in the evening. We barely used the car as we could walk everywhere easily, and use the ferries and local buses.....but were very grateful to have the dedicated parking spaces just below the house. We would definitely recommend this property - it was sheer joy to wake up to the views of the harbour every morning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing a review for Pirates Rest, Brixham. I am so pleased you enjoyed a wonderful stay at the cottage. We of course cannot take any credit of the wonderful views. Great to hear your car also had a rest while you took advantage of the good transport links to the wider area.

Couldn't fault it.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property in a superb location close to harbour, shops, pubs and restaurants. Six of us went and not one of us could think of anything negative to say. There was plenty to do e.g. boat trips, crabbing, walking without the use of a car if you did not wish to use one. All of use would not hesitate to stay again or recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review of you stay at Pirates Rest, Brixham. I am delighted you all enjoyed your stay at the cottage. It is our largest property and as you mention still very close to the heart of Brixham over looking the harbour. It sounds like even the car had a little rest to while you enjoyed Brixham and beyond by boat and foot. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Excellent views over the harbour

  • 3 of 5

The property is over three floors, the top two were in good condition but the sitting room furniture could do with a good clean especially the cream sofas. The ground floor smelt damp on arrival but got better as the week went on when the heating kicked in, it must have been vacant for a while. The dinning room furniture was tired and falling to pieces, the kitchen was well equipped, all the bedding and towels were clean and the beds were comfortable. The ground floor bedrooms were tucked away at the back of the property with no views.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed the views from Pirates Rest. I am concerned about your comments regarding the condition of some of the furnishings. I have myself checked them today and can see no problem. Alas, a cream coloured leather suite is never going to look like new but I checked it carefully and it was not dirty. Also the dining room furniture is a little old fashioned but everything is in good condition and in no way could it be described as 'falling to pieces'. I'm sorry that these issues prompted you to give such a low score. I'm also a little mystified to the score of 3/5 for customer service. To my knowledge you have never contacted us (we live next door to Pirates Rest) so I'm at a loss to understand this rating. UPDATE - in light of this review the owner has asked that the sofas and dining room chairs be replaced and this will be done in the next few weeks.

A lovely Easter Break for 7 family members

  • 5 of 5

There are lots of stairs in the property, which was not ideal for my elderly parents. Also steps to and from car park and cottage, or an alternate hill to climb. This said, we were aware of this before our stay. We did enjoymthe lovely harbour views and the closeness to the harbour and amenities. The cottage was clean and well equipped.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Pirates Rest. I am glad you found the cottage was clean and equipped with all you needed for your stay. The property is on a hill as you said, there is a bus stop just up form the property that goes down the hill into town which guests and locals find useful if the hill or stairs from the harbour side is difficult. I am pleased that the harbour views and central location to harbour and amenities made for an enjoyable visit to Brixham
