We stayed for our first time this summer in Sail Lofts but our eleventh consecutive year in St Ives. Over the years we have stayed all over the Porthmeor area, but can honestly say that the quality of accommodation in Sail Lofts is undoubtedly the best we have enjoyed. As a family with young children, it ticked all the boxes,... More

We live in Italy and wanted our daughters to experience a true British "bucket and spade" holiday, in Cornwall. After much searching, we came across the Sail Lofts website and contacted them. From the word go, the Sail Lofts team were exceptiomal- friendly, courteous and could not do enough to help us. Our stay at Zennor far exceeded our expectations.... More

We have just spent a heavenly week at the Sail Lofts in St Ives. It was perfect in every way. We stayed in Harbour, which was the height of luxury, and accommodated the two of us very comfortably - plus our son, his wife and our six year old grandson! It is in a great position, just round the corner... More

This was our second visit to Sail Lofts and it just gets better. We stayed for one week in Curno and a second in Zennor as the weather was so good. The apartments are lovely, well equipped, spacious and very comfortable. The location just a few steps from the beach could not be better. Added to that the staff are... More

It's not often we return to the same place but Sailofts has changed all that! Outstanding accommodation with everything you could wish for. We have stayed in ''Slip Way' three times now and it now feels like home from home. Maybe a bit extravagent for two but worth the money and the freedom to move about. Better than a hotel... More

Location perfect. It is like a home from home with everything that you could possibly need. High quality finish, furniture, towels, bedding etc. We did not want to come home and will certainly stay there again. Loved every minute and could not fault anything !

Another stay at Curno and another perfect holiday! The Sail Lofts have really nailed it, doesn’t matter which apartment you pick you are always in for a 5-star treat. The apartments are light, airy and spacious with a predominately white theme, wooden floors and tasteful décor. I could bang on about how lovely they are but you just need to... More

This was our 5th stay at the Sail Lofts and the 3rd time in Driftwood. We can honestly say we won't be staying at any other accommodation in St Ives, this place is top class.

Our fifth stay at Sail Lofts - but first time in apartment Zennor (very spacious and comfortable). Many now seem to be trying to copy the Sail Lofts concept, but this original is still the best in St Ives and indeed the whole of West Cornwall - and we go there a lot! The apartments remain timeless and luxurious, but... More
