  • "A lovely property, which we would recommend."

    There were some little housekeeping niggles - in the kitchen there was a virtually empty bottle of washing up liquid and a hand soap with a broken dispenser. We also noticed that the extractor fan in the bathroom of the double bedroom didn't seem to work - and the light bulb over the bath went on and off periodically.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you had a few niggle during your stay. We have passed these on to the housekeeping team. If you have any issues like this during your stay please contact the local office on 01736 630015 option 2, and one of the local team will be able to assist you straight away.

    View across the bay is really nice, with the outside space being reasonably private as well. Would definitely stay here again. Only downside was the parking we had some issues due to either being blocked in or blocked out of space - sorted quickly all but one time.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the area! we are sorry to hear that you had a few issues with parking but glad things were sorted quickly.

  • "Waters Edge feedback."

    Toilets were dirty. Welcome pack very strange, milk, chocolate buttons, apple juice, few coffee and tea bags. Balcony furniture past it’s sell by date, mentioned this last time we stayed. Sand under rugs in living room. Parking space constantly blocked.

    Thank you for your feedback, we will address the toilets and the sand under the rug in the living room with the housekeeping team. We will speak to St Ives Harbour Hotel to ask them not to block any of the cars in undercover parking space. The welcome pack includes a Jute Bag, choclate buttons, apple juice, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits and a starter milk. Since the sad closing of Ferrells bakery we have not been able to offer the freshly made scones and have had to switch across to biscuits instead so we are sorry for any disappointment caused. We will also attend and take photos of the balcony furniture to send to the owner so they can act and order replacements where necessary. If you do have any concerns or queries during your stay, please do feel free to call us on 01736 630015 (option 2) as we are very happy to help.

    Comfortable reclining chairs would be worth adding. The bench seat with thin cushions is well past it’s best. Given the outstanding views and good weather we spent a lot of time on the terrace. Otherwise great holiday accommodation and will visit again. Ivon & Angie Blumer.

  • "Lovey apartment with an array of facilities."

    Beautiful views from the balcony and private. Great location , central. Perfect distance to the beach. The only troublesome part was the car parking and although we had an allocated space people kept parking inappropriately in front of it and we had to continue to ask the hotel for help. The hotel staff were great but it did sometimes make you not want to “dare” to move the car and go out! Other than that it was a really wonderful place to stay and I’m sure we will be back!! It was a pleasure to stay in the apartment and we enjoyed our time there in such a gorgeous location. Thank you to all who work hard to make this apartment available for holiday makers!

  • ""Waters Edge is lovely apartment, clean, spacious and modern."

    It is well equipped, has 2 nice bathrooms with good showers over the baths. The apartment is stylish with internal decoration to a high standard and has a welcoming feel to it. Waters Edge has a good view of Porthminster Beach, but as the balcony is North facing it doesn’t get direct sunlight, only at sunrise which is great to wake up to. The balcony is looking a little tired and unloved... New patio furniture and a deck clean would make all the difference. Peninsula apartments are in an unrivalled position overlooking Porthminster Beach and are convenient for all amenities in St Ives. They also offer the great advantage of access to the Harbour Hotel Spa for the duration of your stay. I highly recommend Peninsula Apartments and will definitely return. "

  • ""We had a brilliant holiday at Waters Edge."

    The apartment had beautiful views from the large balcony. Inside was clean and well equipped. The en-suite bathroom was huge as were the rooms. The children enjoyed the Xbox and the huge range of games provided. It is very close to a beautiful beach; it was nice to wake to the sound of the waves. We would definitely consider coming back in the future."
