We had a fabulous week. While we were there we did have a problem with both TV’s and no hot water. Oliver was superb, he came out immediately resolved the water issue quickly and did a temp fix on one tv so we could see bbc channels, he then arranged for an Ariel guy to come out the next day. You don’t want to have to meet the maintenance guys while you’re on holiday but Oliver was brilliant.
We had a fabulous stay. We will definitely be returning to this property. With the unfortunate overrun of balcony work, we are looking forward to coming back to make use of it next time.
we loved it, 2nd visit and will be back and will only stay in that apartment - brilliant...
Number 38 has lost none of its charm since our previous visit a year ago. The combination of its location with the standard of equipment and the excellent quality and thoughtfulness of the furnishing and fittings, must make it one of the very best holiday apartments in the south west. I will book even earlier for next year.
Beautiful apartment with stunning views. Really well-designed with lovely furniture and accessories. Great location - nice and central to everything you could need - pubs, ferry, shops etc. Shame about the lobby and corridors (very dated and tired), but wonderful once inside. Also, a big thank you to Dan at Toadhall Cottages who came to help us with the heating, which had broken and was broken during the duration of our stay (a building issue out of the control of Toad Hall), and provided very effective oil heaters!
We are pleased to see you had such a great stay. We are also pleased to say that there are plans in the near future for the communal areas in 'The Salcombe' to be updated. The heating issue that occurred during your stay is being rectified by the building management company. We hope to see you again soon.

We have a very enjoyable stay....thank you!
From the time of first booking to the sadness of the holiday coming to an end Toad Hall Cottages and the team were excellent. Very impressed with the extremely high standard of cleanliness of the flat on our arrival. A special thank you to the cleaning team. Also pl pass on our appreciation to the owner who furnished and renovated the flat so very tastefully. It really made our holiday. We have already sent pictures to a friend ( John Hayes ) who is considering booking too. We would love to visit No 38 again! Thank you.
A very well equipped rental property with very good quality fittings. Waterfront location superb, with easy access to the amenities & shops in the town centre.
We had a fabulous holiday which was made all the better by the standard of the apartment. It was such a nice place to go back to after a days walking and sight seeing. The location could not be better and the views from the balcony are fantastic. I am sure we will return some time in the future.
Fixtures and fittings were great- the only thing that would have made it better would be a washer/dryer ( much needed with two kiddies!) The decor was fab throughout the apartment.
Sorry about that, but washing machines and tumble dryers aren't allowed in the apartments because of the associated noise. However, there is a laundry room in the building for guests to use with both washing machines and tumble dryers.

It is a beautiful flat that is well furnished and extremely comfortable to stay in.
Outstanding accommodation experience.
Number 38 must be one of the best in the old Salcombe Hotel. Its position was excellent with its views out across the estuary and out to sea. The interior design of the apartment was as perfect as you could get for a seaside holiday apartment. The equipment too was of an amazingly high standard as was the cleanliness. The bucket and scrubbing brush was useful for the outside furniture but in the end, the seagulls won. In all, an excellent apartment with everything you would need for a holiday and in the centre of the town. As close to being perfect as one could wish for.
For this standard of holiday let we have always previously been provided a welcome hamper. The communal areas are in serious need of upgrade and fall well below the standard of the apartment itself. During our stay the toilet in the property needed some maintenance work, this was dealt with quickly and conveniently by Toad Hall, thank you.
Many thanks for the feedback. The owners and building managers have informed us the next phase of the communal area refurbishment is due at the end of the year. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in this smart waterside apartment.

The property was wonderful and in a great location. It had everything we needed, had clearly been well thought about and was great quality. We planned to do a lot of outings but sitting on the balcony and watching the activity on the water took over! A really relaxing place to visit and stay.
38 The Salcombe is a fabulous apartment in a fabulous location. Very well equipped, comfortable with high standard of fittings and furnishings. We loved it and had a super time. Bravo to the owner. We will definitely be coming back. A few minor issues to pass on: 1. No washing up liquid or cloth to clean surfaces - there is a dishwasher but with it being just the two of us, we didn't use it. 2. Wifi - wifi connection comes from the Salcombe itself and since it's a large building with numerous apartments, the wifi connection was poor, which we found frustrating, especially when wanting to use the Internet to look up local information etc. 3. Strange intermittent water issue: on running the various cold taps in the property, they often ran warm. We had to fill bottles with this warm water and chill it in the fridge as it was too warm to drink. It seemed to right itself on day 3 however and cold taps started to run cold water. 4. On arriving at The Salcombe, we did have problems getting in through the barrier, since engineers who had worked on the barrier earlier in the day had not replaced the fobs on our set of keys. This meant that after a five hour journey, we then had to wait for half an hour for Paul the caretaker to come from Kingsbridge with the right fobs. Also, someone had parked in the allocated parking space (although we did manage to track him down and he did come and move his car and was very apologetic). It was a challenging start. Despite all of the above, however, we were thrilled with the apartment itself. Really super and all our dealings with Toad Hall were friendly, professional and courteous.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at 38 The Salcombe and plan to return to the property. Many thanks for the useful feedback. We will liaise closely with the building managers to ensure the points raised are looked into. As mentioned the correct fobs for entry are now on the guest set of keys.

We can also now confirm the owner has arranged for SKY fibre optic broadband to be installed at the property in March 2017.
