I booked at short notice to stay in Hayle as my partner has fond childhood memories of Hayle and Gwithian beach. When we first arrived and opened the front door we were greeted by this wonderful homely atmosphere the chalet was light and airy the bathrooms yes bathrooms were decorated to a high standard as was the rest of the chalet you can walk to the beach which takes only about five minutes and the views are breathtaking definitely would book to stay there again
Couldn't believe I was booking our holiday through trip advisor but it was really easy and loved reading the positive reviews also, made quite a few enquiries throughout the who booking process and the owners were extremely helpful. The chalet has everything you could ever need and my one and only fault would be out of their hands - Phone signal, the location made it very hard to connect with 3G and the WIFI (not free) providers are not great either, even on a 15 minute free trial the connection was poor!
I guess in one way it was good for us not to be on social media or browsing the Internet when you have views like that right outside your door practically! Great location and a fantastic feel to the place.
Will be coming again next year 100%
Porthia was in a nice quiet location. Outside isn't very well maintained!
Went in and was happy, as pictures are accurate and I was very pleased we chose this chalet.
Bunk rooms full size beds - great for children.
Well stocked kitchen
Range of books, DVDs and beach equipment
Location was ok as a base for us.
Could do with a spring clean, very dusty and in need of a good fettle, was food under sofa and items under the bed.
Bedding was very tatty and pillows need replacing, mattress topper on double bed made it very hot
Double bed has king size quilt... We took double duvet cover and as it was too small it was lumpy ( not good in warm weather)
Didn't have a good sleep at all :(
Bin was over 3/4 full on arrival.
Would recommend visitors take their own bedding for comfort - aside from this we found it home from home and would stay again.
Porthia is a fantastic holiday chalet - fully equipped and lovely extras such as toys, games, beach equipment, books and DVD's and furnished to a high standard. We travelled with our children - 13 & 10 - and was great they had a room each and no fighting over top bunk! The 2 shower rooms were a fantastic bonus - great after a day on the beach. Also the washing machine was very handy.
The site is very quiet - we had a lovely peaceful family holiday with every day on the beach which is an easy walk from the chalet.
A lovely area to stay - lots of places within half an hours drive - though we didn't really leave the beach due to good weather.
