“Great family holiday”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in August 2014

I have just booked my August 2015 holiday to stay here again this year. Having stayed here two years previous I was shocked to read a negative review from the last person who has left feedback. We can't wait to return to the chalet this year. It ticks all the boxes for a good value family holiday. We love to visit the nearby Cornish Arms Pub ( owned by Rick Stein). Crabbing in Padstotw harbour for hours, with a pasty in hand. After a fun filled day out and about in Cornwall a nice cosy bed awaits you at this chalet , a cosy night in watching Tv after watching our little girl running around the chalet park. All amenities cooker, fridge, toast, microwave, A lovely family get away.

“DO NOT BOOK THIS CHALET!!”
Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

We have stayed in various holiday chalets/caravans/lodges etc. but this chalet was AWFUL! 1.The shower room had a light that was not suitable for a bathroom, as in it was dangerous! (DID NOT COMPLY WITH ELECTRICAL REGULATIONS) You could touch the GU10 bulbs easily whilst in the shower! (Hot bulbs and water don't go well together) 2. I checked smoke alarm... it did not work! I took alarm off wall and found there was no battery fitted!!! 3. There was NO water flowing out of hot tap to the bathroom sink at all! 4. The bathroom sink was so loose and hanging off the wall, you could not leave liquid soap container on there, it just slid off!! 5. There was a DVD player in the chalet but it was on a shelf on the other side of the room with the wires wrapped around it! If you wanted to watch a DVD then you would have needed to work out how to connect into TV etc. and find somewhere to put it near to the TV! 6. On arrival we found the double bed had a blood stained sheet on it and the settee had bread crumbs over it, which must have been left there by the previous occupiers! Presumably it was the cleaners week off! 7. In the cupboard there were wires joined with an electrical block connector that is against all electrical regulations (UNSAFE DUE TO EXPOSED CONNECTIONS) I text the owner whilst there but she apparently did not receive our texts! I emailed the owner on our return and she said that she couldn't do anything about it unless she was informed!. No apologies about the lack of cleanliness or the safety aspects of the chalet, but the owner did say that the chalet represented "VERY good value for money"!! So if you want to stay in a chalet where PEOPLES LIVES ARE AT RISK then have this one! I think hot running water and knowing you won't get electrocuted or burned down (smoke alarm!) is not too much to ask of anyone letting out their property for holidays! I emailed again advising of the 'HAZARDS' within the chalet quoting electrical regulations etc. hoping she would acknowledge and rectify these problems for the health and safety of future holiday makers, but I am still awaiting a reply! Apart from all of these issues, we enjoyed our stay in St Merryn, albeit carefully!! PS. One good point....the bed was very comfortable.

I did reply when I eventually got your message and have apologised. The chalet has been checked since your stay and is perfectly save. You would have to be very tall to touch the light in the bathroom and why would you want to.The marks on the sheet were nail polish and the people before left it behind and I have apologised for this due to having some one clean I don't usually have and will not have again. Also the loose sink has been fixed, there again the cleaner who filled in while my usual one was sick did not let me know.Any way it could not have been that dangerous or you would not have stayed all week!!

“Brilliant the best holiday ever”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is the best holiday I ever had will never go abroad again we were lucky we had great weather but could not ask for more form the chalet we have two young children and they loved it the location and the views were stunning and with the play area on site it was ideal for us. We have already booked it for the same time for next year so hands off it's ours.
