Cliff Retreat Apartment

Adults-only apartments in Harwich
A stylish, comfortable and light filled ground floor apartment housed in a beautiful Victorian building situated a mere 50 yards from the seafront - the perfect space for a relaxing weekend away by the sea.

Cliff Retreat is a stunning period apartment situated in the centre of Dovercourt Bay. This space is all about comfortable living and socialising, with a large open plan family room. There is a log burner in the seating area for a cosy evening in front of a fire and a dining area for delicious family meals, all bathed in light from the beautiful bay sash windows. The kitchen, although separate, has an opening into the living room space which is ideal for those who want to cook and still socialise at the same time.

There are two bedrooms available, the first being the luxurious master with a large king sized bed, fluffy pillows and black out curtains for a relaxing nights sleep. The second bedroom has two single beds and is ideal for either adults or children.

The bathroom is really an amazing space to relax in; sink in to the roll top bath for a soak with candles and a good book.

There is off road parking for one car, but there are no restrictions with parking on the road or the seafront which is only 50yds away.

Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing break
We decided to go at short notice and Georgia responded quickly and gave us clear, accurate information. It is a large, light and airy apartment and very quiet which worked for us. It would be excellent value for four people and was good value for the two of us. Mattress is soft.

4/5 Good

Accommodation and Information regarding property
It was a nice stay in a nice location. However there are some things that could be improved that would make a stay more satisfactory, such as: Kitchen - Microwave would have been very useful More utensils and crockery Instructions on how oven works (tried to use and was a disaster even though I am a competent cook) Instructions on waste/bin collections Need non metal utensils for non-stick pans Nice to have - Dishwasher Lounge /Diner- Nice and spacious with great view of the seafront Clock on wall did not work A lamp (or 2) plus nest of tables would have been useful but not a neccessity Main Bedroom Very nice but could have done with a chair Main light had faulty switch and therefore did not use case of electric shock Labels/ on all furnishings i.e pillows/quilt/flowers/crockery etc should be removed 2nd Bedroom - no comment as did not use Bathroom - Basin did not hold water so not good for my husband when shaving No soap /shower holder in bath Although looks nice the bath was a bit wobbly. not very comfortable and not that practical for us. We did not like it at all and would have preferred a shower unit which is more useful Toilet seat was loose Overall it was a pleasant stay and would consider booking again .
