Just a few minutes on the web and I had a luxury holiday at a common sense price to look forward to.
Very easy website to navigate and all properties have an excellent picture gallery and very descriptive summary. I loved the fact that you don't have to book a week long stay from a Friday to Friday, flexible on the dates. Search facility had loads of filter options so only got properties returned that suited our requirements. Booked three times now with Blue Chip and not been disappointed yet.
We had a great stay in this TWO bed appartment in Portland,it was not cheap but it was a very well kept unit,it was let down by the access this area should be kept cleaner,dirty carpets and the lifts had rubbish in them.
We were in Bigbury Bay just seconds from a first class location and beach. Our property was to a high standard throughout making it a very comfortable stay for us. Our weather wasn't great, making our accommodation more important. We visited lots of local sites by walking or visiting areas wider afield such as Brixham, Dartmouth and Salcombe by car. What a lovely area, breath taking views and we were completely taken by Burgh Island, the Pilchard Inn and the sea Tractor !! Brilliant
I called on three occasions to make enquiries about accessibility at the property we were interested in booking, and on each occasion I didn't receive a call back, or email from Blue Chip which given other reviews was quite disappointing.
My partner eventually called, as I was unsure if it was me personally they were not wishing to deal with and was advised that they had returned our calls, but unfortunately they had been calling the property we we're looking to book and leaving messages on their answer phone.
We eventually got to make our booking, but due to the delays with Blue Chip Holidays coming back to us, it was not the week we we're originally looking to book, and it additionally cost us more.
The accommodation does look brilliant though, and the staff on the phone have always been polite - just some additional care around call backs would be appreciated!
Booked online for a week's rental next year, then realised this would clash with mother-in-law's birthday (not a good idea!). Phoned Blue Chip to ask if we could bring forward by one week. They answered promptly and were very friendly and helpful, immediately phoning the owner and calling us straight back to confirm the change! Blue Chip were recommended to us by friends and we can certainly see why! Thank you.
Everything done on line with no personal contact and so far no problems with booking or confirmation.
Property newly advertised and our choice is based on the pictures and description and
we cannot express an opinion other than to say it looks good.
So far, so good. Deposit taken and holiday of choice booked. Good communication from Bluechip and I expect the remainder of the transaction to go as well as the booking. Had not heard of Bluechip previously but found them when searching for the resort of my choice. Can only review the service I have received so far - will know more later in the year.
Decided to have a look at these holidays as we wanted to stay somewhere really nice in Torquay. Was amazed at the choice available. Booking was really easy on line and very simple. As the holiday is not till June 2014 cant really say any more. Watch this space!!!
We were recommended to the site by a friend... following my phonecall to the team we are looking forward to staying at the apartment as the call was handled very professionally along with a smiley, relaxed manner. Take a look and just book... something.
We have booked with blue chip several times and always had excellent service. In June this year we booked a holiday in Croyde with holiday lettings, the service was not a patch on blue chip and since I have gone out of my way to find a property with blue chip and avoid holiday lettings.
What I need when browsing for a room, a hotel, an apartment etc are the simple things in life. I need to see what the place is like so I can imagine myself staying there, I need to know exactly how much it will cost me, how far from town it is and what is included in the price.
Blue Chip do exactly that and they even have a photo of the landlord so that you know exactly who it is that you are contacting, adding a personal touch which many other sites have missed out.
And if that's not enough, keep reading and you'll see reviews from previous guests, brutally honest in some cases! A good site, well done.
We really enjoyed our stay there. It was a good location, clean, comfortable & the perfect size for the 3 of us. Only small issue is that the handbook in the room said the heating & towel rail would come on in the morning & evening & it didn't. We couldn't find the panel to do this ourselves. Not a huge problem but it did mean the clothes we washed for our baby daughter stayed damp & started to smell .
Too early to say
I was recommended this site by a friend and I wasn't disappointed. Fast and easy to use. instant reply on availability and property removed from site whilst being confirmed. Reply with all the relevant information returned within 15 minutes, fast efficient service, now just looking to getting away and staying at the property.
On most sites, you can only book by the week. We arrived from Canada on a Thursday, and went to a timeshare the following Sunday, so we needed somewhere for three days. On this site, we could get that.
The site had lots of places to choose from, and was easy and fun to use. Booking went without a hitch, and we were welcomed very nicely at the holiday home we stayed at. And we liked the place very much! Super few days.
It is so easy to book online with blue chip and always get a quick e-mail confirmation. H ave stayed at The Beach in Torcross, South Devon twice and are going again next year. A great relaxing holiday.
From the moment you view the website you feel this is a well organised holiday company. The pictures are clear and helpful when viewing the accommodation and the map helps clarify the exact location. All the details ensure you tick the boxes that are important to you.
The bookings advisors are lovely and friendly with a good sense of humour too, (very important when dealing with my witty husband) and made you feel that nothing was too much trouble and any queries are quickly answered by email or phone, even after the booking.
brilliant from start to finish, the holiday was booked last minute and the information we where given was very helpful we had no problems or worries at all and thanks to blue chip staff. the description of the property was spot on well equipped and we wanted for nothing...we had the best time. I would not hesitate to use blue chip again.
We booked an apartment with Blue Chip for a quiet weekend away with the family.
We arrived on the Friday and were subjected to an all night rave in the apartment next door. My 10 year old grand daughter was then verbally abused by one of the occupants on the Saturday morning.
We complained to the Blue Chip head office asking to be moved but was told no other accommodation was available. We had to go and stay with some friends locally to catch up on sleep I then phoned the head office on a couple of occasions when we got home only to be told they have no control over things like that. It ruined our special weekend and all we were offered from Blue Chip was a 10% discount off our next booking. Sorry Blue Chip but we will not be using you ever again and are currently making sure our friends all know. We will also be informing the "British Travel Awards".
We've had some wonderful holidays with Blue Chip. They are what they say they are -efficient, helpful and reliable. You really couldn't do better than get on to their site and have a look at some of the properties where you could stay. You won't be disappointed - just like us.
Never a problem always on hand if you need them.weve booked with bluechip a few times and will definateley keep using them.
Lodge very clean and comfortable, spacious all mod cons, wi Fi,films ect ,good kitchen,although we know area well, walking as always good. Easy access to Salcombe. Dog friendly. Quiet. Would definitely recommend,use again.
We have booked with blue chip 4 times now - everytime it is hassle free and easy.
Holidays have been amazing, properties are very very good and communication is faultless.
Everytime we've had a brilliant holiday - thank you so much!
Wanted an escape with my partner and our dog for a few days that didn't mean packing a suitcase and treckng of to an airport. within an hour and half we where here and with the beautiful views,stunning weather and gorgeous apartment I felt like we could have been in spain
The apartment is stunning and it was the perfect getaway from our busy lives back up in north devon.
I have a really bad case of the holiday blues as I write this today.
We will be back.
Good website and only deals with excellent properties. We have used Blue Chip before and been very impressed.
