We really enjoyed our stay and the property was really well equipped and thoughtful touches throughout.mrs C Richardson - 13th October 2019
This property far exceeded our expectations, was superbly equipped, spotlessly clean and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again. Excellent property, superb service, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Blueriver or this particular property.Mr & Mrs David & Joanne Glenn - 3rd October 2019
Ben’s Place is in a lovely quiet part of Torquay and a great apartment with beautiful sea views. We would return again without hesitation.Mrs Jean Greenshields - 21st April 2019
Ben's Place was an amazing home from home. The view to the sea was beautiful and never ceased to make me smile no matter how many times I opened the blinds. The kitchen had everything you need. The hot tub had the same view, we enjoyed the heated water every evening. Torquay was lovely, a short but hilly walk to the town centre. The wifi signal was great and the entertainment varied. My mobile signal (3) was in and out but O2 signal was fine. Ben's Place was an amazing home from home. The view to the sea was beautiful and never ceased to make me smile no matter how many times I opened the blinds.Miss Kathryn Todd - 24th September 2018
This is a lovely holiday homeMrs Sharon Dunn - 3rd September 2018

Really lovely apartment, clean, everything you need and great views!Enjoyed the Jacuzzi after a long journey, friendly welcome and good weather (except for one day)! The apartment was bright and modern with all the mod cons. Could have looked out at the view all day long!Mr McDowell - Baslow - 15th July 2017

Our best holidays ever. All facilities are very modern and in best condition.Beautiful view and very friendly hosts.Thank you for a wonderful week.A. Spranke, Germany - 1st August 2016
What a truly lovely place to stay. This little gem exceeded our expectations . I would definitely recommend this property and will be coming back.Kirstin Walker, Haverhill - 1st August 2016
What a lovely spacious place, with great views of the sea. Even though it was a cold and rainy weekend, we still really enjoyed the hot tub! Definitely worth another visit!Dominique F, United Kingdom - 1st November 2015
Enjoyed our stay, nice views of the sea :) Thank you!Grant F, London - 1st October 2015
Excellent instructions on the flat on three pages including color pictures. Very clean on arrival, modern and located in a quiet neighbourhood. The flat is exactly as described on line. We used this as a base for visiting South Devon so it worked perfectly for us. There is a nice walk down to a secluded beach nearby and Cockington is also within walking distance. Nice views from the rooms and the garden.Frank, California USA - 1st February 2015
Clean and bright apartment, with a great view of the water. Sue was very good with communication and everything went smoothly. Thank you.Han Pham, UK - 1st February 2015
The place was totally immaculate, with everything you would need to make your stay comfortable, from the standard kitchen equipment like microwave, hob, kettle and toaster etc, to the more comfort items such as a huge TV, decent Hi Fi and games console. Towels, iron, ironing board and a good size pristine bathroom were also waiting upon our arrival. There were four of us and the apartment was more than large enough. The mater bed is huge and very comfy. Location is excellent, as is the Sea View, and we were left to our own devices but felt comfortable enough to ask the host for anything if we wished. Would use this apartment again without a doubt, as it also represented extremely good value compared to what I've had to pay in the past for a room in a Travel Lodge or a Premier Inn.Ben Stanbury, UK - 1st January 2015

What a absouloutley wonderful place, beautiful views, felt like a home away from home. As for Andy and Ruth really great people.Kai, London - 1st September 2014
Ben's Place in Torquay is an absolutely wonderful apartment that I will be returning too as soon as I can! The location is brilliant, in a quiet neighbourhood yet close to the marina and the apartment was spotless. Having milk ready for when we arrived was a brilliant personal touch and Sue has been very responsive while booking. I didn't want to leave as it felt just like home there. I will definitely be booking through Sue again. Thank you again for the amazing apartment, it is listed perfectly on the website and I couldn't fault anything! I'd love to know what the mattress is in the master bedroom purely because it was the comfiest thing I have ever slept on!Katie from Southend on Sea - 1st May 2014
Had a wonderful week at Ben's Place - beautiful view of the bay from the garden (and hot tub! and hammock!) and the kids enjoyed having Sky TV for the week. The accommodation was very stylish and comfortable and the owners friendly and helpful. The only reason I haven't given five stars is the lack of space for storing food (not a problem if you eat out all the time!) and we could have done with a washing machine for rinsing our beach things. Apart from that, perfect!Helen & family, Cambridgeshire - 1st August 2013
We had a lovely week at Ben's Place, it was extremely comfortable and cosy, very warm despite the October weather. We loved using the hot tub with its sea views. Ben's dad was very welcoming and helpful. The apartment had all that we could need. Beds very comfy too. The view from the main bedroom and living room was just stunning, spent many an hour just looking at the sea and the boats. Would love to return as there is so much to do in the area?Matt, Em and Callum, Swindon - 1st October 2012
We enjoyed the holiday very much and Ben's place was fab. We needed the hot tub and computer games, etc. because the two teenagers were kept occupied and we had peace. The facilities were good and the owners friendly and very discrete. The weather was poor unfortunately but we managed to fit quite a lot in.Denise & family, Yorkshire - 1st August 2012
Could not have asked for more. Excellent holiday home with all you could need. Will be returning in the future. View from the property breath-taking.Emma, Cambridgeshire - 1st August 2012
