  • "The amazing new balcony and double glazing are superb and the reason to book again, which hopefully i will do."

    . Shame about the non stick pans which really do need replacing, two non stick fry pans please. The rest of property is truly 5 star.

  • "What a fantastic refurbishment, the long balcony and floor to ceiling patio doors, make the very most of the superb views your property has."

    My guests were impressed by the breath taking views, whilst I have visited previously and will do so again. Your property is a credit to you and we really enjoyed our stay, thank you very much.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay, and the refurbishment. We have now had plans passed to put a lift in for both Higher Mount View and the second floor flat Mount View which will be in place for next spring . Look forward to welcoming back. Property Owner

    But the view was worth it

    Thank you for your feedback. This is the first we have heard of someone finding that the mattress was not comfy. We are sorry it was not what you were expecting, but hope it did not detract from your stay too much! - The Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "We found Higher Mount View to be a great location for staying in Marazion; it was comfortable and the view is excellent."

    The stairs are are hard work for oldies like us but the views make up for it. Parking on site is a nice bonus. We would strongly recommend Higher Mount View.

  • "The location couldn’t be better and the views are fantastic, we have been before and would book again."

    That being said, the apartment could do with updating and some attention. Cleaning needs to be more thorough, the mirrors in the bedroom were not clean, dropped something and happened to look under the sofa and that’s not been done recently (urgh), the blind in the twin room is broken & useless as a means of keeping light out as are the curtains in the main bedroom. The duvets are incredibly heavy and in the summer in a top floor apartment could REALLY do with being much lighter. The sofas are as flat as a pancake! Lots of things could do with replacing now, the heated towel rail is a bit grim, missing bit of flooring in bathroom, wardrobe doors that don’t close. Overall we would return simply because of the location but a bit of updating is overdue.

    Thank you for your feedback. Your comments have been raised and discussed with the owner. Thanks again for your comments and we are glad to hear you enjoyed the location and would come again. Property Owner

    The place was well equipped,the linen and towels of hotel standards.Furniture was good quality.There was so much going on due to G7 preparations that seated on the small balcony we were well entertained.Marizion has everything one could wish,including Shops,galleries,restaurant,pubs.We recommend the small Castle rock cafe just 100 yards from the house and also the fish and chip shop opposite.If there had been better blackout curtains in the bedroom especially the twin room it would have been a five star review.Plus be aware there are many steps to the top apartment.Wiuld book again in a heartbeat.Thank you Sykes.

  • "In our opinion it's worth staying at "Higher Mount View" just for the uninterrupted view of St Michael's Mount and Mount's Bay alone."

    We spent many an hour on the balcony watching the world go by this last week. We personally feel that the accommodation has everything thing that you would be likely to need. As for us we do not have anything negative to say about the property. Nice touch to have scones, milk and flowers on arrival. Also nice to see the information booklet has been updated. We would particularly like to say a big heart felt thank you to the owners for agreeing to our request which made our stay at "Higher Mount View" very special this year. For that we are immensely grateful. All in all. We cannot recommend "Higher Mount View" highly enough, and with a fair wind and a bit of luck we'll be able to go back again soon. Kernow bys Vyken!

    Only downside was that there was no washing machine. Would have preferred one in place of the dish washer. Apartment was very clean, Hayley does a great job. Nice to find a bottle of milk in the fridge and a cream tea upon arrival.

  • "Marazion is a lovely resort, and the apartment was exactly what we were expecting."

    It was clean and roomy for the two of us. Parking wasn't an issue either, having called in advance following a review left by someone who stayed before us who'd experienced difficulties. The view from the balcony was spectacular. We had a vase of flowers and some scones and cream left for us on arrival, which was a nice touch. In your specification about the apartments facilities, I would suggest adding that there is an iron and ironing board available. It would have been helpful to also have had a baking tray and bedside lamps too.

  • "Although this property is supposed to have a designated parking space, we arrived to find the space occupied, which is not a nice experience after driving 250 miles."

    We used the space for the cottage next door to unload and then had to find an alternative facility before the owner of that cottage returned. Considering that the property is on the second floor, unloading in a hurry after a long drive was not a good beginning to our holiday. We established that the rogue parking was from the ground floor occupants, who seem to think that they have a right to park in any space available for days on end. Their car finally moved on Wednesday so that we could utilise the allocated space but it returned when we went out for the day. This is not good enough and left us with an uneasy feeling each day as we did not know where we would be able to park on our return to the property.

  • "We have stayed here before, and absolutely love the view, the flat, having parking, and the convenience of it."

    I needed a holiday, and slept a lot in the very comfortable bed. To be able to sit in bed, or in the living room with the sea just outside the window is wonderful. A few little niggles! 1. In our old age we had difficulty with the television! We spent the week watching ITV or nothing! 2. I really like to have a bedside light! ( solved at the car boot sale....for £1!) 3. My husband prefers a fairly upright chair, and struggles to get up from squashy settees! Solved by using one of the chairs off the balcony! 4. It was disappointingly cloudy and cold! But we did have a few sunny periods. At least we could stay in the warm, and watch others getting cold and wind blown!

    ( When we could get away as a couple). We were not disappointed; it met all our expectations; It is ideally situated a minute stroll from the Godolphin arms that boasts unrivalled views of the Mount. I have news for them, grab a bottle of wine and sit on the balcony at Higher Mount View; now that is a perfect and exclusive view.

    Everything as it describes especially the view. Lovely and warm and I now miss hearing the waves from our bed at home . Perfect The lounge sofa the (sofa bed one) was a little worn and uncomfortable now but used the other sofa more which was not a problem . As you enter Camelot house it looks a little worn down and dark but as soon as you see the views from up the stairs and in the flat you forgive this. Can't wait to return .

Occupying the top floor of an attractive house, it is approached via stairs from the ground floor.

The living room is open plan with seating facing the seascape and a well equipped kitchen and dining area to the rear.

Bright and sunlit, there are French doors leading from the living room to a private balcony - an ideal spot to watch a romantic sunset.

A double bedroom with a king size bed and large picture windows with fantastic sea views, an attractive twin bedroom and a modern shower room complete the accommodation.

There is also off-road parking for one car.

Marazion Beach, which is favoured among families for its safe bathing, lies a stone's throw from this attractive top floor apartment as does the village centre with its charming blend of galleries, curio shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes.

A 20 minute drive north-west will transport you to the fishing village of St Ives and the north coast, famous for its surfing beaches and dramatic cliff top walks.
