  • "Excellent stay."

    Great location (genuine 5 min from Fistral walking), Crantock too (although we drove and used National Trust carpark). Headlands and town all in comfortable walking distance. Apartments is exactly as described, bright and roomy, consider it good value and great as a base to head out and explore. Reasonable places to eat, again within walking distance, loads more if you want to jump back in the car, same with shopping etc. The only niggle being some renovation /cleaning works were being undertaken on some of the other apartments, so on most days quite noisy from 8am onwards, especially when there were pressure washing the building but not a big deal. Possible areas for improvement (despite giving a 5* rating, so these are quite subjective!): Bedroom ventilation: you can’t have the windows open at night and have a dark room. The carpark lights are really bright and shine directly into the windows, when closed the fitted blackout blinds are super effective, but when open, even a little, the mini suns from the carpark do their thing! - split A/C would be ideal but even a fan would help a little. Supplies: strict building rules about black bagging rubbish but no suitable bags provided. Empty washing up liquid and hand soap bottles in the kitchen. Sainsburys close enough so we could easily purchase, but if you need guests to use a certain type of bag, would be nice if it’s supplied.

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    The apartment was just like it was in the pictures. It was spotlessly clean and well furnished. Ideal, quiet location and short walks away from the town centre and Fistral Beach.

  • "Crabs and Lobsters is such a beautiful apartment."

    We stayed for a week and I was really impressed with how big it was. It had a lovely bath which was perfect for days after the beach. The location was also really good with just a short walk to Fistral and Crantock beach. The apartment is also really clean and tidy with great facilities. I will definitely be staying again!

  • "The whole experience was one of great satisfaction The property and it’s location is ideal."

    Easy key access and the parking off road on site was also great. The apartment was spotless and large, vey large rooms and good viewing. Not that this has anything to do with the lovely apartment but the internal neighbours were not very nice. Experienced a little conflict over closing of doors on our arrival, apparently too loud !! I was dragging two suit cases at the time?

  • "The property was excellent and the cleanliness was immaculate."

    The location was great and we could walk into Newquay within 15-20 minutes. The host had even left a welcome book with handy local information which we used and it was first class.

  • "The apartment is beautiful."

    My only comment is that it lacks some Pyrex dishes to serve meals, iron and ironing board..

  • "After our wonderful stay in Whitby we used Sykes again."

    On arrival we were shocked at the sparseness of the furnishings. A cavernous loft apartment with only a two seater sofa facing a television. There was a coffee table in front of the sofa. Nothing else! There was a washing machine but on phoning the agent I was told an ironing board and iron was missing as it was a health hazard. I expressed dismay at the lack of furniture and amenities at the apartment and she replied that it belonged to a lovely young couple who had just bought the apartment and couldn’t afford to furnish it!!! The huge bedroom contained one bed and 2 bedside tables and fitted wardrobes. Nothing luxurious. There was nowhere to sit, no dressing table for hair and makeup. Hardly the ‘romantic’ apartment advertised. The agent offered a bottle of Prosecco in compensation but it never arrived. Little things like one tissue in the tissue box, very cheap flimsy lavatory paper and big things like no dishwasher, ironing facilities and four flights of stairs to the apartment were a great disappointment. Nobody with health issues, heart, mobility etc., should consider this apartment. ‘Romantic’ certainly not. For a one bedroom apartment this was greatly overpriced.

    Would sultan in this location and apartment again, we’ll worth the money! Just one comment and this is being really picky, the apartment had no kitchen bin of any size. Thanks so much for lending your home to us!!

  • "Lovely apartment but internet speed was almost impossible."

    Owner really needs to upgrade I internet package/speed. Fridge was unplugged when we arrived (didn’t realise) and have already spoke to a representative - promised a £25 refund for wasted food, have not had this yet? Also, door stops provided were not sufficient to stop the doors from loudly banging closed.

The property

Resting in an elevated position just outside the centre of the thriving town of Newquay, Cornwall is Crabs and Lobsters, a delightful second-floor apartment boasting lovely views and a contemporary décor.

Ideal for a romantic retreat, the apartment offers sought-after off-road parking while being within walking distance of Newquay town centre and golden sands at Crantock beach and Fistral beach.

Arriving at the property, park your car and climb the stairs to the second floor to reach your dwelling.

Stepping into the apartment, the open-plan living space greets you with an abundance of light pouring in through the large window, fitted with patio doors and a Juliet balcony.

Cosy up on the sofa with your loved one and settle in to watch the Smart TV after an exciting day at the beach.

From here, take advantage of the well-equipped kitchen, fitted with all the necessary appliances for your self-catering requirements; the sleek, fitted kitchen is home to a gas hob, an electric oven, a microwave and a fridge/freezer, where you can cook up a storm to enjoy at the dining table while you plan your next day of adventures.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to the bedroom for some well-deserved rest; the spacious bedroom hosts a plush king-size sleigh bed and plenty of storage for you to unpack your belongings in this home away from home, as well as boasting chic furnishings and a neutral décor.

Completing this stylish abode is a bathroom fitted with a walk-in shower, a basin, a WC, and gorgeous roll-top bath where you can relax and unwind in the bubbles after a day of discovering your surroundings.

If you don't fancy cooking throughout your stay, there are numerous restaurants, cafés and pubs just a short walk from the apartment; Sea Spray is a delightful café offering an all-day menu and pretty sea views, while slightly further into the town, The Fish House Fistral offers a delicious fresh seafood menu.

Spend your days at one of three stunning sandy beaches; Fistral Beach, Crantock Beach and Poly Joke Beach are all within easy reach of the abode and offer wonderful surfing opportunities in the ever-rolling surf, amongst other watersport activities.

If relaxation is more your style, the fantastic beaches provide a beautiful setting for catching some sun and building sandcastles with your little one, before grabbing a light lunch and an ice cream.

Animal lovers will be pleased to discover the superb Newquay Zoo, home to dozens of exotic and endangered animals set within 13 acres of idyllic tropical gardens, and the Blue Reef Aquarium Newquay, which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and provides an insight into the fascinating sea creatures just off the Cornish shores.

Branching further afield, a short and scenic drive will bring you to Perranporth, home to another wonderful beach and a boating lake, where you can tour the lake and stop for a coffee and cake in the café.

Whatever the weather, Crabs and Lobsters is the perfect base for a romantic holiday to Cornwall's immense coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
