“A mixed experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2009

On arrival we were shown to our apartment, immediately the smell of sick was overpowering in the bedroom. Deciding to put up with this we went to make some tea, the crockery in the cupboard were all filthy and needed washed, however no dish clothes/liquid were provided. Other small items that would have made a big difference to our stay would have been a bottle opener and wine glasses. The television was also the size of a calulator. Lastly despite advertising car parking for each apartment this was not the case. We were then awkon repeately throughout our stay by groups of young hen/stag parties, so if all of the above does not bother you then book, however i would not go back or recommend to a friend.

Just a quick note to say, great place to stay at, especially over the may bank holiday, as was just far enough out of the town centre, to be away from the mayhem!! The flat was very tidy (loved the shower room..), plenty of room to park, and on a quiet street!! Will be back down in August with a group from work, can't wait!

PS Like the fact that the beaches are literally a stones throw away!!

I visit Newquay every year with my family and went a bit earlier than most years for easter, although the weather was unpredictable but sunny for most our stay we had a wonderful stay at the newly built Carn Brea Holiday Apartments which are very centrally located in Newquay, close to Tolcarne Beach.

A pleasant change to our usual stay in a guest house, we decided to go self catering and the Apartments were greatly priced and we saved hugely by eating in most nights then proceeding on to the the town's entertainment.

The Apartments come fully equipped with all modern high spec appliances e.g plasma screen tv, washing machine and nicely decorated. Overall we had a lovely stay and would highly recommend Carn Brea Holiday Apartments to all especially if you are looking to save on the expense of eating out all the time and the cost of parking in town, being the Apartments are very close to town and have private off road parking.

Overall there are many great points: the price, locality to Newquay town, quality facilities, decor, saving on eating out, private off road parking, close to all towns beaches oh and the surfboard storage and washdown area came in very handy for my nephew who usually had to change in the street when staying at a guest house.
