I was very nervous about going here due to the awful reviews. However, it is what you make of it. We visited this place through the sun holidays so didn't pay much at all. Bungalow was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. Stripey Kelsie and Stripey Katie were lovely they kept our little girl well entertained. They worked very...

Thank you very much for leaving us such a fair and honest review, we really appreciate it. Your comments have been passed to all departments.

I have family that live in Cornwall and we go down to see them every couple of months. Over that past 15 years we have always stayed at St Ives Holiday Village. At the end of last year the place was old and looked how it did when my gran parents ran it. But wow we have just had a...

Staff were really friendly. The clubhouse entertainment was brilliant even for beginning of march. Shazam from the stripey crew & all the stripeys made a top effort to get all involved in the evening activities. 😊well happy with our weekend away. The pool was a tad cold for the little ones.

Our chalet was nice but they seem to be privately owned even though we booked through the John Fowler website so I think the accommodation can be a bit hit and miss. The chalet is in a nice little setting but the facilities were a let down. The swimming pool and changing facilities are very old and in desperate need...

I would not advise going here until they have got rid of all the old damp chalets. The new Ines looked like they would be nice. But the old ones are unpleasant to say the least. We noticed people had said they were cold so took extra bedding and it all became damp from the chalet. The tap in the...

I am very sorry that the accommodation provided during your recent stay with us did not meet your expectations. This is a very popular holiday park and the chalets are in constant use.

Hello James It is so difficult to respond to a review such as this without sounding argumentative. I can only see the situation as you see it and which may not necessarily be as other people see it. You have made some very interesting observations about the clubhouse and the swimming pool. As you can read in other reviews, most...
