  • "Just as viewed online, happy with everything during our stay, clean, tidy, comfortable and great views."

    Only bad thing to mention is our hot tub wasn't up to heat on the first night, but worked perfectly once it had gotten up to temperature. Overall great stay would recommend

  • "The Hot Tub was cold on our first night, was a bit disappointing as we were looking forward to using it straight away, also the lighting around the Hot Tub area was not very good, the strength of the air jets in the tub was quite poor too, however these are minor gripes, the accommodation was really good,clean and comfortable."

    Great location for exploring the Cornwall area. Privacy of the accommodation was great, you hardly knew there were other guests staying on the complex.

  • "We arrived early evening on a Friday to find no hot water and the most complicated heating system ever seen."

    No instructions or guidance at all from Charteroak. I happened to have kept the number of them from the days before when they called to check on us coming. A plumber was called but we were told "maybe tonight if not tomorrow" but luckily he turned up. Now when someone enters and says "I'm always here, it's the same fault but they wont pay for the repair", alarm bells ring and frustration builds. I was shown how to reset a trip switch inside an electrical control panel (cover removed) running multiple areas of 240 volts for me to touch. We then faced the hot water tripping around 3 times a day. On top of this, the fridge was not cooling properly and the control were broken. The extractor fan above the hob was on full and the controls were broken. Some lights were out and on the deck, half the lights didn't work. For the money paid, we felt very disappointed and a complaint has been made to Sykes as the booking agent. The location of the site and this property were stunning but let down by the ever present faults and issues that really should have been resolved.

    We are very sad to read you were disappointed with your stay at our property. We take all feedback very seriously as we look to provide a wonderful stay to all of our guests. The plumber you speak about is a member of the maintenance team and I am looking into further why they stated we refuse to pay for a repair as this is simply untrue. He has informed us that he did not show any guest how to trip a switch, again this is being looked into further as it is unacceptable behaviour. With regards to the other matters I have spoken with the team who confirm the following: We only have record of the issue being reported once, not a 2nd time. The lights outside are in working order – there are two switches one for each side, we apologise for this not being clear during your stay. The weather was very hot during your stay which will have had some impact on the fridge temperature, though it is not broken. Upon review, we found no issue with the extractor fan. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic second stay at Southern Halt and 10 Horizon View was as well kept as when we first stayed a couple of years ago."

    Sun loungers would be a welcome addition for summer stays. Fresh towels and bedding for week long stays would also be helpful. Would definitely return!

    The position of the Lodge is perfect with beautiful views and clever landscaping which ensures total privacy. It is so comfortable, with everything you need and the level of cleanliness is hard to beat. We just love it and will be back again and again.

  • "The lodge was perfect in every way, clean tidy comfortable, fantastic views across the countryside."

    The lodge is secluded and private which helped as my dad has dementia, and took the dog. Great location to travel to other parts of Cornwall, spar nearby and further is an asda and aldi. The little extra touches are great a pint of milk in the fridge after a long journey. A little welcome box of sachets of tea, coffee, washing liquid, dishwasher tablets and 2 dressing growns. The lodge is well equipped with everything you need.. just missing a clothes airer. Outside there is quite a breeze but nice when its warm. The hot tub was clean and the staff come round and check it. Would definitely book again and highly recommend

    the management on site were useless & your customer services were not appologetic at all saying this is what happens sometimes when it is emptied & re-filled!! we still had to pay for it though!! its just not good enough

  • "I have stayed in many of the lodges at southern halt and they alway exceed my expectations!"

    This lodge was clean and comfortable and I liked the added comfort of carpets throughout rather than wooden floors! 1 small issue was the kettle switch was broken which made making a cuppa more challenging but not an issue worth complaining about urgently, I advised Sykes on the day we left of the problem and they were going to sort it immediately Would highly recommend

  • "10 Horizon View could do with being updated."

    As a dog friendly accommodation, hard flooring would be better throughout living spaces. Current carpet is very dirty. Master bedroom bed is uncomfortable and needs replacing. Good location and facilities, hot tub well maintained.

    Many thanks for taking the time to write a review regarding your stay at our property. We are sad to read it did not meet the high standards we pride ourselves with. I can confirm the carpet has had a thorough deep clean and we have supplied a very comfortable mattress booster to accommodate a wonderful night’s sleep. We do hope you look to return to us in the near future knowing that your feedback is very much appreciated and actioned upon. Property Owner

  • "Great holiday and a return to Horizon View for us."

    Clean property and didn’t smell of dogs which is always a bonus. Hot tub was great and comfy furniture. Couple of things that need attention- The oven wouldn’t turn off so had to turn it off at the mains. We did report it so I’m sure it will be fixed.The bedding quality wasn’t great. Thicker duvets, pillow & mattress protectors needed (especially in this current climate) and sheets that fit better. The shower curtain in the main bedroom needs replacing(preferably with a screen) as it has gone orange at the bottom due to mould from being left wet. We struggled to get enough hot water for us all to have a shower so not sure if there was anything else we could do as we tried the thermostat. If these things are sorted we would definitely be giving top scores. We look forward to visiting Southern Halt again.

    Many thanks for taking the time to write a review based on your most recent stay here at Southern Halt, we very much appreciate your feedback. In gaining this we can now confirm we have provided a wonderful mattress booster for a relaxing night’s sleep as well as replacing the duvet and bedding. The shower curtain has also been replaced and the oven switches tested to ensure full safety for all. We do hope we are able to welcome you back to Southern Halt and in particular 10 Horizon view for another wonderful stay in the not too distant future Property Owner

  • "The property itself was lovely, clean and warm."

    Dressing gowns were a lovely touch. The views were amazing. Only downside was hot tub has seen better days, many of the functions didn't work and it looked pretty dated and worn as did the cover. The property is quite remote but lovely if you want peace and quiet. As the property did not have any boundary fences our dog kept wondering off and had to stay on the lead.

    The automatic gates at the main entrance were missing, which did mean we didn't feel quite as safe as previous visits, as anyone could enter the site.
