“Lovely place - Need to action previous guest comments”
Left on 06/04/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 4, 2013Stayed May 2013
The modern apartment is situated 10 mins from Falmouth and, with a car, is a great base.
Ideal for a couple, perhaps challenging with a small child without disturbing other guests so close by.
It was interesting reading the guest book, as most guests had flagged up similar minor issues, but very little had seemed to be done about them.
Little things easily fixable included:
*Broadband is intermittent.
*The sauna wouldn't heat up to above warm.
*You can't roll back the cover to the swimming pool on your own.
*Our freezer had mold in it.
*You can't really shower without flooding the bathroom every time.
*Not enough crockery etc.
It's a lovely place, I was left wondering why the owners hadn't taken action on previous comments. They had all seem to be made in the right spirit in the hope they'd be fixed for future guests.

A wonderful apartment. Modern, clean and ideally situated 10 mins from Falmouth. Use of a large pool and spa, with adjoining sauna were an added bonus for chillaxing after a days exploring. We would wholeheartedly recommend this apartment as a base and for a romantic break.
