  • "We had a lovely holiday, the only down side was the sofas were extremely low, my parents had trouble getting up."

    Apart from that it was a nice holiday

  • "This is our 2nd stay at Ballasalla - the property was superbly presented for our arrival, spotlessly clean, with the added nicetie of seasonal mince pies."

    Ballasalla meets all our needs, is functional and perfectly located for trips to the coast - thank you, we hope to be back in the New Year.

  • "The good points."

    Property was clean and well equipped, the owners family was helpful. The bad points The sofas were very soft, and were difficult to get up from, the beds were metal frame & sprung and were OK but not great. However the worst thing is that the advert was wrong on a number of points. A) Fishing has not been available at nearby Rosecraddoc Manor for approx. 18 Months!!! This was one of my search criteria. B) The WiFi was unusable I had to stand outside another bungalow approx 75 yards away to connect, by the time I got back to Ballasalla it kept dropping out every couple of seconds. Another of my search criteria. C) The pub which was within 0.2 miles was not open and had not been since last year, this was disappointing as we would have used this.

  • "Although I contacted you regarding the availability of WIFI after reading previous negative feedback and an assurance that the wifi had been sorted out there was still no wifi."

    The owner sent me the password to log in and actually sent a picture with a star on it showing where to stand outside the bungalow next door to get a signal. The owner next door has installed their own receiver and they told us it was the only way they ever got a signal. The bungalow itself was immaculate and faultless in a beautiful location.

  • "Directions could be more helpful."

    Turn left into the drive of the white cottage would be more accurate. The left turn is a road which leads to a farm and a different set of cottages. Clear

  • "Overall everything was great, the only downside was that if the leaflet I read was correct, you have to pay for WiFi for each device."

  • "Ballasalla is clean, well equipped, well maintained and comfortable."

    You can't buy the weather - which unfortunately wasn't the best but we enjoyed the holiday. The only problem we encountered was that we were unable to access WiFi.

  • "Location was great very beautifully and peaceful."

    Central to many parts of Cornwall. Would suit small young family to elderly couples.

  • "Both my partner and I were delighted with the Bungalow."

    The facilities there are absolutely first class. More home from home and so clean and tidy it was far more than we both expected. The site was also very clean and well laid out. I have already made some recommendations to friends and family. I would stress that unless holiday makers enjoy walking a car is essential, to us it was an excellent base from which we were able to travel around Cornwall. That is something we usually do whenever on holiday. Overall, we recommend a FIVE STAR RATING.
