  • "This was the worst holiday we have experienced and by far the filthiest property we have ever stayed in!"

    From the moment we walked through the door and started to see the muck and dirt everywhere, we felt uncomfortable! We contacted the 'property manager' who just replied saying she could come out and clean it again, yet she had already had over 8 hours to do so! The bed pillows were absolutely disgusting, full of yellow and brown stains yet they had even had the cheek to put pillow protectors on them? The floors hadn't been washed at all, the kitchen blind looked as though it had never been wiped, the cooker was so disgusting that we were unable to cook anything all week! The toaster smelt and was absolutely full of crumbs, not sure when that was last emptied? The shower was also a death trap, no shower mat provided and no grip handle inside, our daughter has a very serious fall and a s a result, she was left in a lot of pain. The entire property required a full deep clean and in the current times of cleaners having extended hours to do this with covid rules being in place, we were disgusted that we were expected to stay in it! We left a day early, we never received a refund for the day either!! The holiday Company were no help what so ever, they never phoned back when they said they would, never responded to emails, just excuse after excuse when we phoned them! We will NEVER book with this company or it's umbrella companies again! It was quite frankly appalling, the service and aftercare is none existent! Nobody has even apologised over any of it either, the staff we did get through to on the phone were rude and obnoxious too, they had no intention of trying to help or sort the problems out!

  • "The apartment was very clean & well equipped."

    Very spacious especially as there was only 2 of us. On the downside the extractor fan in the en suite goes on for what felt like forever once the light is off & you’re trying to sleep. The mattress in that bedroom is very soft, not great for a person suffering back ache. Disappointed that you can’t get access until 5pm, (especially when previous occupancy had to vacate by 9am) after a very long journey it would have been lovely to get settled & the kettle on maybe around 2-3pm. I did message the caretaker who said she’d let me know if we could get in sooner but it wasn’t ready until 4.50pm. We had a lovely holiday & enjoyed our stay at Tehidy.

  • "We had a great week staying here, it was home from home with all the facilities you could need."

    We pre-booked restaurants before we went, I’m glad we did as you couldn’t just walk in for a table, all were fully booked. The Longstore was excellent, as was Eddie’s Kitchen. Everything in Charlestown was within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

  • "Facilities were fantastic, apartment really clean."

    Had a 2 week stay and requested a bedding change, no problem to the caretaker, who answered our questions promptly. Would highly recommend this property, especially liked by our teenage son, lovely to have the use of the xbox. Lovely quiet location, even with the main train line behind the property.

  • "A really nice tidy modern property with good facilities."

    Only points to mention would be the bathrooms could do with a shelf for toiletries & it would have been nice to have some recycling facilities. The bedding in the bedroom with the ensuite was a little ill fitting & could do with some improvement. These points are minor observations and we had a lovely stay at the property which we found to be in an excellent location.

    Good base to explore this area of Cornwall. Cons - Busy railway line runs to the rear of the property. Glimpses of the sea from front bedroom window, so not a sea view?

  • "This apartment is first class with regards to quality, cleanliness and location."

    its also within easy walking distance of the sea front with many outlets for food and drink. Accessibility to many popular areas of Cornwall are within an easy driving distance, but the local bus service is within reach of the apartment if you prefer a different view of Cornwall. When it comes to supplies you need for your duration of the holiday two well known supermarkets are within a five minutes drive away for all your needs. If you are seeking a holiday where privacy and quietness is needed then this apartment should tick all the right boxes too. The apartment is immaculately looked after by the owners and all the things you expect to find inside for your duration are at your disposal. This holiday apartment has served us well on two occasions and it has exceeded all our expectations.

    They were just too soft, I would have liked a booklet with a bit more information about how things worked, like the Xbox for Netflix etc as we aren't gamers and it took us a long time to figure out how it worked.

    You need to be able bodied as the flat is at the top of 3 flights of stairs. Anyone who cannot get upstairs would struggle with their luggage. Thankfully we didn't have a problem. It is a great flat in a great place
