  • "The accommodation is excellent and clean, comfortable and stylish."

    The outstanding cinema room and jacuzzi bath/sauna area are brilliant yo have abd why I booked again! Unfortunately I returned to the exact same cottage, not the one I had booked due to a stressful day. I can only add that the customer service department, namely Tracy, was most accommodating and forgave my senior moment. A very relaxing break in a spectacular part of the world. We'll be back, might try the correct cabin next time!

    I am really happy to learn how much you loved your break at Southern Halt, Rachel, albeit in a different lodge than you were expecting! I have passed your compliments on to our lovely Guest Services Administrator, Tracey, who helped you during your stay. We look forward to your return visit and can't wait to welcome you back again!

  • "The cottage was great, everything we expected for the price but when we used the spa bath we had to get out within minutes due to gunk/mould/rubbish coming out of the jets."

    It was awful. We called the receptionist to inform them and although we were offered another unit we didn’t feel that it was fit for our stay due to the the weather. It was raining and of course the new tub was outside. Also, we didn’t feel that we wanted to pack up and move to another unit for only one night. We were told that they could not do anything about it. We were not offered any compensation or discount. We were told that the manager would make contact after the weekend, now 2/3 days later and still no contact. Very disappointed

    Thank you very much for leaving us your thoughts Leslie, we really do appreciate your time. I am truly sorry that your stay with us was interrupted by issues with your jacuzzi bath, please be assured that this bath has now been serviced by our hot tub contractors and should not cause any more issues. I am aware that Laney, our General Manager, has been in touch following your stay. We really do hope that you will be back to visit us again in the future.

    Suggestions for improvement, a parasol for the roof terrace, as it becomes hot in full sun. Also a few more mugs for drinks, so they can be washed once in the dishwasher, instead of hand washing. Overall a very lovely place and we enjoyed our stay.

    The lodge was exactly what we were looking for. We usually go away somewhere with a spa as we love to relax and unwind in a sauna and hot tub but we recently got a dog and thought this wouldn’t be possible. This lodge had its own sauna and hot tub so we could enjoy our own private spa with the dog nearby.

    Unfortunately as per the reviews we had black debris blowing out of the spa bath jets even after we initially ran it to try to purge it knowing it may have that issue. Really pleasant tranquil setting. Did have a minor issue when the toilet cistern wouldn’t refil but maintenance came and sorted it promptly. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

    However, the jets in the bath need servicing and cleaning properly as there was black gunk coming out of them. I can see similar reviews saying the same thing so it obviously isn't being maintained. This really let down our stay as it was the main feature of the property that we booked for.

  • "This is a beautiful lodge, really very homely."

    Beautiful grounds, fantastic place. My only issue would be the hot tub, during use black particles come out of the jets and into the water. The property overall was amazing, really beautiful. Had everything we needed. My one issue for the site would be the road lighting, it was very rarely on, so when walking the dog, if you didn’t take a torch it was pitch black.

  • "Went to use the jacuzzi bath."

    When jets were turned on bath was filled with black scum. As it took nearly an hour to fill we gave up. This ruined an otherwise perfect stay.

    Mr ToothOct 2022

  • "Very disappointed with the jacuzzi bath as it was reported in a review from July that black slime came out of jets and that a service was required we still were subject to the same black floaters each time we used it, after 3 attempts and no improvement we gave up."

    No batteries in the remotes for lighting in cinema room and broken mirror over jacuzzi bath taped up. Felt disappointed that for £1490 for a week these things had not been fixed.

    Mrs TunnacliffeSep 2022

  • "Amazing week."

    Had a lovely stay, all the facilities were spot on. The roof terrace was nice to enjoy the evening sun with a meal and drink or two. It would be the icing on the cake if it had an outside hot tub. Still 5 stars and would definitely recommend and book again.

  • "Absolutely stunning property, perfect location to explore Cornwall, BUT ."

    . as others have stated the indoor spa bath needs a good service and clean as when you turn on the jets , black slime comes out and ruins the experience.. for the sake of just getting it serviced and cleaned maybe once a month as per instructions it would make the world of difference.. such a shame as everything else is just perfect in the property ( we run it through to clean out the jets when we arrived and this did help but as stated it needs servicing!)
