Gallinas Apartments
Ranked #22 of 30 Specialty Lodging in St Ives
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Just returned home from a week in this fab apartment, wi-fi, sky and perfect parking space right outside (some of the parking spaces can be a bit tricky - particularly if allocated to the rear of the apartments, very tight). Only one disappointment, serendipity has a seating area, lovely and well equipped with settees etc but it is along side a very busy, very noisy road - so if you if you want somewhere quiet to sit in the day or evening, this may not be the apartment for you. Currently there are also renovation works going on across the road - so interrupted view and additional noise for the next few months. Having said all this, I will be happy to visit Gallinas again but might just choose an apartment away from the road.

We stayed in the sanctuary apartment 3 and it was perfect. We loved the open plan living and the whole place was very well equipped. Great specification and we enjoyed a great new year. Perfect location to allow a 5 to 10 min walk into town to blow away the cobwebs without being too far away. Will definitely recommend

2 adults, 2 teenagers, stayed at No. 11 - Atlantis - Gallinas Apartments at the end of August. Despite the unseasonally cold weather for August!! we had a wonderful holiday. The apartment was spotless and modern. All the bedding - quilts, pillows and covers and towels, were made of egyptian cotton. I loved it so much, I promptly got home and went egyptian cotton mad!! There was a TV in both bedrooms and one in the lounge - plenty enough to avoid arguments on a wet afternoon. All the Sky channels are available plus there's free wi-fi. I personally enjoyed sitting out on the double balcony in the evenings with a glass of wine! Very close to the beach and a 10 minute walk into town for the restaurants. Prepare your legs for the hilly terrain of St Ives though - it killed me by day 2! but I got there eventually... Loved the apartment and would recommend to anybody.

We stayed in apartment 3 which is a ground floor 2 bed flat. They allowed us to have our dog and provided dog bowls snacks etc which was a real bonus. It was very well equipped with lovely good quality bedding and towels, comfortable seating and beds, and every kitchen appliance/piece of kitchen equipment one could possibly need. There were loads of dvds for use on any of the 3 tv/dvd players, plenty of board games and a really useful information pack on shops, galleries, cinemas, restaurants, walks etc. There was a welcome basket with wine, biscuits and water and some tea, coffee and fresh milk, very welcome on arrival before a visit to the nearby Tesco superstore for provisions. All cleaning provisions were there and the washing machine, dishwasher cooker etc were really easy to use. The decor was lovely and the building very secure with a code entry for the car park (or there was a button on the key fob once the keys were picked up.) Being a short walk into St Ives was great since it was very easy to keep the car in the apartment car park and enjoy the area on foot. Free WiFi was lovely and the apartment far more spacious than expected. We had a wonderful relaxing time and would love to go back.

Considering the price of these apartments we expected the quality to be very high, thankfully we were not disappointed. Situated about five minutes walk from the centre of St Ives they are close enough to leave your car but not too close to experience any of the hussle and bustle of the summer crowds. If a view is important to you do not book apartment no.5, the patio area is slightly below ground level and your adjacent parking space directly obstructs the sea view, contrary to the advertised information. The apartment itself was more spacious than expected which was a pleasant surprise, when you think apartment you think small, but all the rooms were a good size. The 5 star ratings are justified - lcd tv's, designer bathrooms, dishwasher, wii, and contempory decor. Generally these apartments are excellent which is reflected in the prices.
