  • "We loved our stay on Arwenack Street - the property has been renovated beautifully, was super comfortable, and had everything we needed for our stay."

    The central location was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Lovely host who has clearly put a lot of effort and thought into the property, and it shows. Thank you!

  • "Excellent location."

    Clean, comfortable and cool house. Would stay again. Would recommend. Only downside - no information pack (for house, hot tub, appliances etc.) or local guidebook.

  • "House is renovated to a high standard facilities superb, however no information about local facilities and despite the attraction of the balcony with hot tub with the view over Falmouth harbour the view below leaves a lot to be desired, with various urinals in a derelict site , also balcony can be viewed by adjacent social club fire escape which is used as a smoking area by its customers who tend to be local snd where later on in the evening the language can be shall we say if an adult nature, also noise from club mainly Fri Sat Sun night is a nuisance so can be the noise from arwnack street at night as late night revellers returning home in the early hours, we where also treated to the sight of 3 drunken youths scaling the scaffolding opposite late one night."

    So in summery, if your looking for a fantastic property in the midst of bars and restaurants this is the place for you, however if your looking for something more peaceful perhaps look elsewhere, also could I mention that perhaps a visitors book and local information would be useful

  • "We had a wonderful staycation week at 16 Arwenack Street."

    The apartment is well laid out and beautifully decorated, all the bedrooms are a decent size and the bathrooms are great, with hot water all the time. The open place dining/living area is lovely and the kitchen was well equipped. Minor suggestions are a couple more serving dishes and some small bowls for prep/cooking. The whole apartment was very clean and comfortable and its central location is excellent, especially for a multi-generational family stay. Falmouth is a fantastic town, with beautiful beaches nearby.

    Accommodation was even better than advertised, rooms spacious , Modern and clean, view was amazing, I will miss waking up every morning to that sunrise over the harbour, everything needed for a comfortable, successful holiday is supplied within the accommodation, the only negative is the parking , trust me I am having to be massively over critical to find a negative re our resent stay here, 10/10 , would definitely go back

  • "Sykes are very well organised and professional, sending information well ahead of our visit."

    The apartment and host were exceptional, I marked comfort as good because the apartment was so warm we had to open windows in order to sleep but the road noise at the front and seagulls at the rear made it difficult to sleep. However ear plugs were provided and we adjusted to the noise. The quality of the facilities, the location more than compensated for it.

  • "The experience of this gorgeous welcoming townhouse was enhanced by the thoughtful hospitality - welcome bubbles, gorgeous cake and cookies, local coffee and milk - the fresh flowers were a joyful touch."

    The bedrooms are spacious and tastefully decorated (in fact the whole townhouse is - with art from local artists up on ever spare wall - gave us so much to look at and admire - i will be needing the name of your interior decorator please :)) The kitchen is stocked with every sort of quality cookware, utensil, glassware and serveware you will ever need - great for those evenings when you want to stay indoors for a home cooked meal (which we did and thoroughly enjoyed). It's conveniently located and a step away from all the lovely local shops and places Falmouth has to offer. The only negative experience was when we arrived and needed to unload (before heading to park our car in the parking lot closeby) - the street is (understandably) narrow, and we needed a couple of mins to unload our bags - the sales person in the shop downstairs (Clique Customs) rushed to us immediately and started giving us a hard time by yelling about how they needed to run a business - he seemed perturbed by the fact that we had stopped our car near his shop to offload our bags (engine running, not more than 90 seconds). Not very neighbourly of the store but obviously our breakfast coffees were never bought from there for the 5 days we stayed ..hehe!! This was of course no fault at all of Sykes cottages, but something to bear in mind when you're pulling your car in if you're driving there. That initial hiccup was quickly forgotten as soon as we walked into our wonderful home for the next 5 days, and what a wonderful time we had in Cornwall. A lovely place to come "home" to after our day's activites - that Hot Tub with the most awesome views Falmouth harbour, was part of our daily relaxation ritual!! We'll be back for sure!
