My wife and I booked a part-week break for the 25th April 2016,with Mrs Claire Toher at this property. We had stayed here before(the first time in 2007) and we immediately realised that the accommodation had had very little spent on maintenance and refurbishment since our first visit! The place was very dirty, dusty and run-down. The bed linen was...

We stayed in Midships for the 2015 May half term holiday and liked it so much we came back again this year. Meantime the property had been totally renovated, we had everything we needed, it all worked and the fantastic view remained the same ! We'll be back !

We have stayed at this self catered property more than once and have been blown away by the stunning views from the terrace. Maybe we were lucky but the weather was stunning each time, from early morning to the sun going down, Hope Cove definitely has its own micro climate. The property is charming and yes the patio furniture has...

Great spot with fantastic views across the bay. Unfortunately apartment we stayed in (port) was in dire need of a renovation. Patio furniture was broken and unsafe, carpets grubby and generally rundown which was a real shame. Hope cove is lovely and will go back again it not to the old colonial house.

We booked two of the three apartments that make up the old Colonial House for my father's 70th birthday coming up on October 12th. I know Hope Cove well and had always coveted that house. I secured the two apartments by paying...

The best views in Hope Cove which is a beautiful place. We stayed in Starboard for a month. We found that the surrounds were very unkept. The inside was clean but needs a refurbishment as the carpet and furniture is very tired.

Stayed here during October half term with my family and two small children. Lovely accommodation. Big rooms and well equipped. The real positive of this accommodation has to be the amazing views. Easy walk down to Hope to the local pub and the beaches. Negative points has to be the lack of a bath, especially with small children and the...
