“Slipway in February”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We stayed in Slipway during the first week in February 2013 and whilst we had some stormy days with high winds and lashing rain, we stayed snug and cosy inside. The light and spacious apartment on 3 floors is exceptionally well furnished and equipped, beds are comfortable and the views from the beautiful living room on the top floor down the slipway to Porthmeor Beach are stunning. We had the use of the garage while we were there and our friends were able to park in a designated space a short walk away - definitely a bonus, as parking and driving in St Ives is a nightmare. We spent much time exploring the cliffs and beaches followed by daily rations of tea, scones and clotted cream! Will definitely return but unfortunately later this year it seems to be fairly fully booked so we have booked a Sail Lofts cottage instead. It will be interesting to compare.

This was our second stay at the Island apartment at Easter and once again it exceeded all of our expectations.
The Island apartment is just fantastic for a family of four with the main living room being upstairs and it just beautiful. The decor is of the highest quality and we felt totally at home in such wonderful surroundings. It was so quiet and gave us a perfect break from our normal busy lives. There was nothing better than coming back to the warm apartment after a long day sightseeing and walkin around beautiful St Ives. We just loved everything about the apartment, the original art in the apartment is a lovely finishing touch.
The location is just perfect being just seconds from the beach and gave us the best position is St Ives.
From the moment we started booking our stay the staff are just so professional and their attention to detail is just brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, our request for no feather pillows or duvets due to an allergy was completed without any fuss.
We booked the Sail Lofts for a special treat as it was our 20th Wedding Anniversay and the staff remembered and posted a signed card from all the staff. We appreciated this so much as these little things mean so much! Thank you!
I would not hesitate in recommending anyone to stay in this wonderful place with such accommodating staff.
Well done guys keep up the wonderful customer service as it sets you apart from the rest.

Room Tip: I don't think you'd be disappointed with any room at the Sail Lofts!

We stayed for a week in March 2013, the week before Easter for a walking holiday. This was our second visit to Sail Lofts, having stayed in Harbour in July 2012.

We had the most fantastic holiday on both occasions, and the apartment Godrevy was our favourite. The views and the light were amazing! We preferred our visit in March, as St Ives was still buzzing, but not as crowded which made parking so much easier.

Fantastic holiday and highly recommend Sail Lofts.

We stayed in Lighthouse for 1 week in March. It is a stunning apartment, with lovely views from the lounge. The decor is modern and everywhere spotlessly clean. The weather was very cold outside but inside it was always warm ! The welcome pack of bread, milk, butter, jam ... is a great touch, especially if like us you arrive late at night. This is our second stay at Sail Lofts ( previously in the equally stunning Harbour apartment). These are definetely the best apartments that we have stayed in. We will be back !!

We stayed for the second year in the apartment named Beach in the Saillofts. Once again we had an excellent holiday. The apartment is of a very high standard and the close proximity to the beach and surf school was perfect for the teenagers of our group. I highly recommend the Saillofts. Thank you to the team who made our stay so enjoyable.

Our third stay in St Ives - of which we'll never tire - and the best to date. Sail Lofts is located very close to Porthmeor Beach and the best breakfast in the country (scrambled eggs with Cornish crab & creme fraiche) and it's beautifully designed and appointed. We stayed in Surf, which has everything you need on two floors, including a well-equipped kitchen and works of art on the walls. Everything is of good quality and in great shape, and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Go for it. You'll love it.

Room Tip: Surf is on the beach side. If you're a big enough group, or wealthier than us, pick the loft wit...

We stayed in island at the sail lofts for the last week of March - it truly didn't disappoint. Stunning apartment which is well appointed.

The living space is huge - light airy and sociable. Both bedrooms are an excellent size. This is our second visit to the sail lofts and I am 100per cent sure we will be back.
