“Another fantastic stay at the Sail Lofts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We have just returned from yet another fabulous stay at the Sail Lofts. We've stayed in the Sail Lofts annually since it opened and have never been disappointed. This time we stayed in Harbour which was on a par with Island, Curno and Zennor - everything you might need has been thought of, and the accommodation is spacious, comfortable and relaxing - with a location that can't be improved upon.
The onsite team are fantastic - welcoming, professional, attentive and responsive - we really couldn't visit St Ives and stay anywhere else!

Having just returned from a fabulous off season break in St Ives with the family my priority now is to compliment our amazing accommodation. We stayed in the Slipway apartment with views over to the sea on Porthmeor beach, 3 rooms actually look directly down the slipway and onto the beach. Our young grandson was in raptures at the close proximity to the beach. The crash of the waves on the beach lulled my husband and I to sleep each night too.
All the bedrooms are equipped with 1st class bedding etc and each has a bathroom ensuite, one bathroom even had a television on the bathroom wall!! The kitchen was stocked with every possible appliance, we even had a blender and food processor. The beautiful lounge, at the top of the apartment where we gathered each evening to play silly games had views to die for.
The staff were so helpful nothing appeared to be too much trouble, they were all unobtrusive and just so helpful. Slipway was most definitely a 5 star experience.
Sail lofts is deserving of every superlative. Our booking, our welcome, our apartment were all 1st class. Thank you all for a truly memorable stay, its no wonder you're no1 on Tripadvisor- its totally justified. We hope to see you again soon.

We had a great week in Curno, part of the Sail Lofts accommodation in St Ives. The quality is superb and the best we have experienced in St Ives. The management is thoughtful (beach towels provided - handy even in December, discount cards for The Tate etc) and unobtrusive - we had our front door and never once did it seem like a holiday complex.

We stayed at St Ives during the limbo that is the week between Christmas and New Year.
My partner had stayed there last year and this year we rented Godrevy, which is a two bedroom, upstairs apartment. It has glimpses of one of the beaches which may not be as good as some of the others, however it was more than made up for by being an extremely comfortable and incredibly roomy two bedroom apartment. It had underfloor heating which was very welcome when coming in from a long walk in the elements. The kitchen is well appointed if you can be bothered cooking. It was very light and airy. All aspects of the accommodation were fantastic.

The owner and staff were very welcoming and professional.

It is very well situated with easy walking distance to the beach, pubs and cafes.

The only very small gripe we had is that the car had to be parked nearly a miles walk away but once you get there you'll see how parking space is at a premium and perhaps the owners should be applauded for securing any at all.

All in all a fabulous place to stay and indeed visit.

We love St Ives and the Sail Lofts is hard to beat as a place to stay. Stayed in Beach this time - has a great living area and up to the great standards of the other cottages we have stayed at - Bay and Ocean. Great space, great quality and well equipped.

Treated ourselves to a stay over Christmas. Wasn't too busy.

Would always recommend St Ives and Sail Lofts.

If you've never visited Cornwall out of season - you really should!!!
It's like having the place to yourself!
We have stayed at the Sail Lofts - Surf before and decided to come back. In fact, there really was no contest in our choice of accommodation. This really is 5* luxury right in the centre of St Ives!!

We will most definitely be returning again next year - and I can't wait!!!

We have visited St Ives for many years and stayed in lots of places but once The Sail Lofts came on stream that was it - we haven't stayed anywhere else. It's heaven all the apartments (and we have stayed in most of them) are beautiful, well equipped, max comfort esp the beds!
And so convenient - best of both worlds they are in a quiet spot yet just a few minutes from everything. And now they have their own carpark (a bit of a walk but well worth it esp in high season - but you can unload/loadup outside the Lofts so it's not a problem)
Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff it is just the most perfect place try it!!!!
