The Surf Apartment could not have been better for my husband and I . It was spotlessly clean and very modern and It was literally 30 seconds from beach - and from wonderful restaurants , galleries and coastal walks ! We could not have been looked after better by the very cheerful and accommodating staff - they accepted our Tesco...

Sail Lofts provides very high quality self catering accommodation to suit everyone and all within a 30 second walk to Porthmeor beach (blue flag). There is a private parking space for residents, and as everyone who has ever been to St Ives knows, this in itself is worth a booking! The accommodation is furnished to a very high standard and...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Sail Lofts cottage with our 9 month old daughter, my mother in law and our pet dog. From the point of first contact until departure our stay was excellent and without fault. The staff were superb- friendly and helpful. The cottage itself was perfectly located and immaculate. The little touches make the...

From the time we pulled up in the car and popping in the reception everything was very professional, easy, and very well organised. The staff are more than willing to chat, let you know what's going on around you, and are there to help at any time. We stayed in the Island which is a two bedded apartment, it was...

16 people down to celebrate the mothers birthday and all in 4 of the spacious houses and apartments here. Great to have the space to have all around for breakfast and evening drinks before a meal out. Slipway has great views and all apartments have large well appointed and equipped living areas. The bedrooms are mostly ensuite with large comfy...

This was a return visit for us and we stayed in Lighthouse this time. Fantastic accomodation with a very friendly welcome, and everything you could ever want to enjoy your stay. We would highly recommended it for couples. Sail lofts occupy a superb location right next to the beaches and I would argue that we enjoyed St Ives in off-season...

Second stay at the wonderful Sail Lofts (Lighthouse 2015 and Godrevy January 2017). As before the accommodation is of a high standard, very clean and welcoming. Lovely 'welcome pack' to greet you in your apartment on arrival. Highly recommended.

Three years ago we stayed at The Sail Lofts, indeed in the same apartment - Godrevy I have reposted my review from three years ago and I am very pleased to say that the apartment has been extremely well maintained and our experience was just as pleasing as it was the first time around. On this occasion it came with...
