“Great Apartment with fantastic Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2011

We were greeted by James on arrival ,who kindly helped my wife to carry our cases (me being in a wheelchair ) up to
apartment 3, and showed us where everything was, and how things operated.
The apartment is very spacious,with a large lounge and kitchen area ,the balcony doors open up the full area of the balcony allowing fantastic views of the beach and out to sea.
From a wheelchair users point of view. is ok for disabled with some degree of movement, parking is outside the entrance, and a lift to your floor
wooden floors ,ideal for wheelchairs, all doors will take a standard wheelchair, there are 2 bathrooms one with a shower unit and the other with a full size bath with over head shower, the bathroom with bath is more suited for disabled. overall we loved the apartment and will return again.

We flew from Manchester to Newquay which was just a 30 minute flight and collected a small car from the airport. It is less than a 10 minute drive from the airport to the apartments.

We had been given turn-by-turn directions, and were advised that the keys would be in a key safe.

On arrival we were met by James, the apartment manager, who was doing his post clean inspection of the properties. James was very welcoming and showed us to our apartment.

The apartments are literally 10 yards from the beach, with stunning views out to sea and across the bay.

There are 2 bedrooms; 1 double with en-suite shower room, and 1 twin, plus a family bathroom with over bath shower. The showers were powerful and there was always plenty of hot water.

There is a large square kitchen/dinning/sitting area. The kitchen is of high quality with granite work surfaces. The kitchen had every convenience you could wish for from large fridge and freezer to dishwasher. There was quality cutlery and crockery and glassware. Everything has been thought about, even to providing hand soap, foil and cling wrap.

The sitting area had a large L shaped sofa bed (it’s actually moved around now 90 degrees from what is shown in the photographs so that it faces the wonderful window. There was a large wall mounted TV with Blu-Ray player.

The windows onto the balcony can be fully folded back so that you can bring the outdoors indoors. There is a large balcony with table and chairs.

We only used the double bed, but this was comfortable with quality bed linen and pillows. The towels were also of good quality.

There is an allocated parking space, and a large outside store cupboard for each apartment which would be excellent for the secure storage of surf equipment.

The apartment has an excellent and informative welcome pack which describes the various features of the apartment and how they work. There was also lots of leaflets and brochures for various tourist attractions.

There is a café, pub and convenience store all within a 5 minute walk.

Newquay town centre is less than 10 minutes by car.

We did not see James again until the morning that we left, however we had a contact number which he assured us we could call at any time should we require any assistance.

To summarise this was definitely a 5-star experience and we have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone. Thank you James, and see you again soon. C.
