“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The views from this apartment are amazing. The walk to it is quite steep,and parking is at the back of the apartment. Parking can be difficult for larger cars, but it is a bonus to have a parking space.
The apartment is small but well laid out and of a high standard. We loved it. It took about 10 mins to walk to the other side of Looe but we felt the apartment was on the better side because of the views and because it was quiet.
The kitchen was well equiped which made it a pleasure to cook and we shopped at the local farmers shop in the town. We like to shop local for our food and there was plenty of places in the town so you don't need to travel out of Looe to buy the things you may need. There are some nice National Trust walks close by too. We will love to stay there again.

“Not as good as expected”
Reviewed 22 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

First off the area is lovely and the holiday was great but we did have a few problems with this apartment. As a self catering apartment there should be storage space for food, there are no free cupboards just a fridge which was stuck at 9 degrees, to my understanding food that needs to be refrigerated should be kept at 0 to 5 degrees anything else can cause microbes and bacteria to grow causing food poisoning. There was a note in the dishwasher saying that it was awaiting repair and no one wants to wash up by hand on holiday but we had to. Also when we tried to cook on the stove, we discovered that it did not turn on or heat up, and after trying to contact maintenance for help we were offered none and the calls were ignored. There was also a sky box on the TV, however you do not get any sky channels nor do you even get many freeview channels, i feel that they were trying to make the apartment more of a luxury than it really is. On the website it says that it is a 2 minute walk to the beach, no more like 20, and to get back to the apartment you need to climb a very steep hill so you cant really go in and out as they please. The bedding had also not been cleaned there were stains which looked like blood and snot on the sheets. Lastly even though we have no disabilites i fail to see how wheelchair users are supposed to access the apartment with no ramps or lifts. As a student we paid nearly £500 for this holiday in a '5 star apartment' needless to say we expected more. I would definitley visit Looe again but not stay in this accomodation.

Management Response
24 Jul 2013
I am sorry to hear that your experience of Portwrinkle was not to your total satisfaction. To deal with your points:
Maintenance - the apartment is managed by the owners themselves and they respond to all clients calls quickly and efficiently, I have checked with them and they received no calls or messages from you. The kitchen equipment has been checked and is operating correctly. The TV - by the Cornish coast you will not get all of the Freeview channels unfortunately.
Walk to the beach - it is a 2 minute walk to Hannafore beach - the nearest beach and this is what is advertised. The walk to East Looe beach takes exactly 16 minutes as I have walked it myself. Our website clearly shows the location of the apartment in relation to both beaches and all amenities.
Hill- Not sure what steep hill you are referring to but if you exit the apartment from the front door then there is no hill in either direction.
Wheelchair access - the apartment building is not advertised as being wheelchair accessible and I am not sure why you made this comment?
Linen - all linen is freshly laundered for guests.
In summary - if you were unhappy with anything about the apartment and did not get a response from the owner why didn't you contact Holiday Cottages Cornwall? We are open 7 days a week and I can be contacted day or night, I treat customer satisfaction with the highest priority and would have dealt with any issues you felt were below your expectations.
I am very disappointed you felt it necessary to take the time to write this review after the holiday but not give us and the owner the opportunity to deal with matters to your total satisfaction while you were on holiday.
