  • "Just enjoyed our 2nd stay at this property and will shortly be booking a 3rd for next year."

    Perfect location, perfect view, perfect facilities. Fresh bunch of flowers on the counter and a bottle of wine in the fridge on arrival was a nice touch. The car park is tight as mentioned in some other reviews but manageable. This was our first time visiting with a roof box and we had just a few centimetres to spare under the shutter so those with vans and large 4x4's with roof accessories be mindful

  • "Beautiful beach apartment in a prime position."

    The apartment was immaculate and beautifully presented. Amazing balcony with sea views and south facing sunshine as well as sea views from both bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked and modern leading onto a beautiful living room with a huge comfortable sofa and beautiful sea views. Both bedrooms were a good size with comfortable beds and the master has a double sink and double shower all clean and immaculate. The apartment was lovely and warm and the block it’s self was well look after and clean in all communal areas. We have stayed in several different apartments on the headland road and this by far the best one !

  • "It was really nice to come back to apartment and see improvements from last year."

    I really liked the change of bed location in master bedroom as you can see ocean direct from it. We changed one of the light bulbs in the bathroom as it’s gone off, but its white instead of warm colour one. Thats the only one we could find in your apartment. You might want to keep some more for the future. Otherwise wouldn’t change anything! Was such a lovely welcome with bottle of wine and fresh flowers. Looking forward to come back and already looking for available dates in Autumn. Thank you for a pleasant stay and sunny week in Cornwall

  • "A really homely apartment with everything you could need provided."

    Really clean which is super important when dog friendly. Excellent location with fab sea views which is customary for headland road. Luxurious and well appointed which is what you expect from cribbar apartments - lovely welcome touches on arrival. Sofas and beds comfortable, especially in second bedroom. Mattress a bit firm in master bedroom but have slept on much worse and Would stay again. Parking space may be tight to get into for larger cars when car park is full but as it wasn’t we didn’t have issues. Just to point out for maintenance the sliding wardrobe in second bedroom is not secure on tracks at the top.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are glad that you had a lovely holiday and are sorry that there was an issue with the sliding wardrobe door, this has now been fixed. We do hope that we can welcome you back again in the near future Property Owner

  • "This was our 2nd stay at the property."

    It perfectly suits our needs. Pleased the large "spotlight" has been replaced with a smaller light. Lovely to have the basics such as hand wash etc. The doors on the main ensuite bedroom didn't open which was a shame as it was very hot the weekend we got there. It was extremely windy one night and as per peoples comments, I assume an air vent lid at rear of kitchen flapping and banging all night disturbed the dog, so may have been noise from him unfortunately that night as he was scared. The egg chair didn't work for us (sure great for others!), but still enough room on the balcony for us to sit out and watch the golfers and the world go by. We left the recycling contents in the bins in the apartment, as the instructions weren't too clear on whether to remove from the bins or leave in, so if we got this wrong I apologise. We have stayed on Headland Road a few times and this is by far the best apartment to date hence the re-visit. No negatives, just a wonderful much needed break away and I'm sure we will be back. Thank you!

    The views are just divine! Only thing I would say from a woman's point of view is the lack of plug sockets near a mirror which I think has been mentioned before, otherwise we'd like to stay again!!! The location is great we only used the car a couple of times for days out. The quality of furnishings and interior decoration is lovely and very home from home, the Stargazer lillies lasted all week and made the whole apartment smell two words JUST FABULOUS!!!

  • "No 8 Cribbar is a lovely apartment and so well equipped."

    One of the best equipped we have stayed in. The weather was appalling during our week but we were socomfortable at 8 Cribbar we enjoyed views from a warm and comfortable holiday home. It’s so close to restaurants and places to have a drink or lunch or afternoon tea. Weather permitting its only minutes walk into Newquay. The smart TV offers Netflix for visitors enjoyment and if you have Amazon Prime you can sign into your account, There is one addition that I feel necessary. A full length mirror preferably near a plug. From a women’s point of view make up and hair drying was not the easiest. There was a banging noise coming from the corner of the kitchen near the window. It was pretty constant and sounded like an air vent flap banging in the wind. It might be easily solved. We had a lovely week and hope to return to Cribbar again. The milk, tea and coffee were very welcome and the bottle of wine was superb. Thank you so much for a lovely week.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you had a lovely stay and enjoyed your time at 8 Cribbar. Thank you for making us aware of these few things and we will look into them. We hope to see you back soon. Property Owner

    This is a brilliant apartment with everything that we needed for a week away. The view over Fistral beach is wonderful even in Autumn weather. The care that the owner took to support our stay was exceptional. The setting for us was perfect, close to the beach and the restaurants at Fistral and an easy walk into town.

    With no complaints. Only issue was the parking. The parking is very tight & if all the other spaces had cars parked in them I am not sure if we could have parked the car. Also we a roof box & there were aluminium air ducts in the car parking ceiling which we would have hit with our roof box if my wife had not guided me into the parking space. Other than that holiday was great.

    Really appreciated the flowers and prosecco. The dressing gowns were a welcome bonus. Cleanliness was top notch. Great settees in the lounge for relaxing and looking out of the window across the golf course to the surf.

  • "The apartment is amazing and location is just perfect!"

    The only thing that could have made the apartment itself any better is air con in the bedrooms and extractor fans in the bathrooms- 1 was broken which we were made aware of but the other bathroom didn’t appear to have one. Building wise, the bin store is terrible. I couldn’t see what went where and couldn’t get to the bins due to the amount of glass bottles all over the floor. Also the key pad to get back into the building from the back door doesn’t work so you have to walk all the way back round the building to the front door to get back in. I would definitely book again but if those few things were rectified it would make the stay even better.

    Thank you for your feedback. There is an extractor fan in both bathrooms, it is above the door so may not have been seen. We believe other people outside of the flats are using the bin store, so there are plans to put a lock on. Unfortunately the key pad is the responsibility of the management, but you were notified about this prior to your stay. Property Owner

    Fabulous location with the most amazing view from every window. View maximised in lounge and master bedroom with floor to ceiling windows/patio doors. Like that you are also able to open a window in the rooms without having to open the doors. Balcony is South West facing and as such gets the sun most of the day. Very sheltered from the wind. The apartment was decorated beautifully, well equipped and furniture/beds super comfortable. Nice little touches like wine and flowers left for us. Would most definitely recommend and visit again.

  • "Just returned from a wonderful week in this fantastic apartment."

    The underground carpark was a godsend as it was torrential rain and high winds when we arrived, so able to unload and stay dry. Not sure how you could turn your car if all the spaces were occupied though. Very comfortable furniture and beds, great bathrooms & kitchen, big tv in lounge plus tv’s in bedrooms, large dining table. It has 2 balconies, the larger one off the lounge has comfortable furniture to sit out on. It has amazing views of Fistral beach, the golf course and Pentire headland, perfect for eating your breakfast on and watching the amazing sunsets at night. You can even watch the surfers from the balconies. Perfect location close to beaches, headland walks and restaurants on the doorstep. We only had one problem during our stay which we reported and that was sorted out the following day, brilliant. Just needs a bit more info about the location of the bins outside as we couldn’t find them and had to contact the owner. We would definitely recommend this apartment and would be very happy to stay there again. Didn’t want to leave.

  • "We had a lovely week in this apartment."

    It was well furnished, with nice homely touches, that really made it feel like home rather than a holiday let. If we were being super picky, it would have been good to have had a colander rather than just a tiny sieve and a measuring jug, we of course found a solution to this and it just goes to highlight how good we found this place if these were the only very slight negatives. The views over the golf course and to the sea were lovely and it was great to just sit back, relax and take it all in. As well as being very close to the beach it is just a short walk to the town, but far enough away not to be disturbed. There was some occasional noise at night from people coming back from the beach bars/restaurants on the road outside but even this could not detract from our enjoyment. In another review the underground tight parking space was mentioned, it is tight but we have a large 4 x 4 and managed to park with relative ease. If we go back to Newquay and it was available, we would definitely book this apartment again, assuming of course that the price does not increase too dramatically after this review

    Very secure. Nicely furnished with some unusual decorative items. Fresh flowers in a vase to welcome us, nice touch. Suitable for wheelchair user. 10 minutes max walk into town. Nice bars/restaurants down at the . beach. Recommend The Stable where you can sit on the verandah with a beer and pizza watching the surfers. Took us a couple of days to find the welcome booklet, hidden in a drawer, which had all the wifi info etc, might be an idea to leave that out. Plus, info on where to leave the rubbish is incorrect but I'm nitpicking here. The car park space allocated to the apartment is a bit awkward, we have an Audi Q2, anything bigger would struggle.

    Few negative points below: More details required re entry procedure. **The garage door code is actually for the pedestrian door to right of garage, you then go in and press the button inside to open main door. **The space for no 8 is far right hand side by the wall and large cars would have difficulty getting into the space especially if all spaces around are taken. **The notes in the property indicate there is limited visitor parking at the rear but this is not the case, the 2 extra spaces are for the penthouses and additional parking is pay and display at the rear or the beach car park. ** The key safe is located in the entrance hall, to left of lift under the stairs and not by the apartment door as one would expect. **The only reason I have marked cleaning down slightly is because the plug holes in the bathrooms and kitchen were disgusting, fortunately there was some bleach in the cupboard which helped, but they could still do with a proper clean.

    Thank you for all your comments, we are glad you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. Regarding your few points **I have amended the information sent to future guests, explaining that garage door needs to be operated from inside the building, after using both codes provided. **Communal Key safe area, in main hallway, LHS, under stairs before you get to the lift **Re parking spaces at the rear . I was unaware that they couldnt be used, but the pay & display carpark is free of charge out of season if visitors find the underground space tight to access ** I also passed on your comments re the plug holes to our cleaner, so this has now been dealt with too. Many thanks for taking the time to inform us of these points as we want to provide the best experience for our guests. Property Owner

Newquay is the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting eleven beaches and over seven miles of golden sand, three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a beachlovers and watersports paradise. The town, with its zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. For avid walkers, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 14 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants, and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached within a short drive. Picturesque St Ives and the Tate St Ives gallery is just a train ride away. In fact, because nothing in Cornwall is far from Newquay, it’s the perfect touring base.
