“LIGHTHOUSE STAY”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Recently stayed at Sail Lofts and can honestly say it was outstanding. Never been moved to write a review before and may be sorry next time i try to book. We are very frequent visitors to St Ives and whilst competition is clearly pushing up standards, Sail Lofts has to be up there with the best if not the best. Good thing about staying in the winter is that the quality of the apartment is such that if the weather drives you indoors then its no hardship. If you go at busier times then watch out for parking difficulties and I'd reccommend trying to book the car park via the Sail Lofts team. Well done to all behind this venture. We'll be back.

We wanted to get away from 'it' for a week and found The Sail Lofts by entering 'St Ives Hotels' in to Google. I can only say "Thank you Google".

My wife and I had an absolutely fantastic week, from the welcome we received on arrival (thanks Sam) all throughout the week, where nothing was too much trouble, to the lovely email we received when we got home.

We cannot recommend this place highly enough. The welcome pack, with tea and bread etc., was great after a long(ish) drive. The location is superb, 30 seconds from the beach, 30 seconds from at least 2 art studios, and only 2 minutes from a host of shops, pubs and restaurants. Add to that the luxury, style, cleanliness, and it has it all - even their own Spa. The massage was fantastic - the quickest hour of the week!

We went from 2-9 December and found that even in 'different' weather St Ives and The Sail Lofts are an inspiring combination. So much to do, but also, as The Sail Lofts are so comfortable, easy to do nothing if you choose

We will be going back to St Ives: when we do, we will be staying at Sail Lofts. You can't say more than that!

We stayed in Surf at the Sailofts complex - what a lovely little apatment. There was everything we could have asked for - a real home from home. When we arrived late into the evening it was lovely to be greeted with a welcome pack of tea, coffee etc and everything for a lovely cream tea, which we did restrain ourselves to leave for the next day. The apartment was very clean and warm, and it was good to see they take note of customer comments as the chairs had been replaced with a sofa, as commented on by cutsomers in the visitor book only a few weeks before. This made it a really relaxing place to just unwind in after a potter around St ives on the Saturday. The email response from the staff was very quick and any queries were responded to immediately - great customer service. We have already passed on details to friends and family, and would definately want to stay there again.

Room Tip: The Surf is ideal for two but to look at the other apartments if more than two are travelling. They...

I had a long weekend to fill and one requirement to be met which was to be able to relax. The Slipway apartment in Sail Lofts was the perfect remedy.

From the moment you arrive (after a long but hassle free drive from London) you realise that you've made the right choice. Luxury doesn't say enough, it's just all perfect.

If you could own a place by the sea, then this would be most peoples idea of what you'd own, having won the lottery. From the large bedrooms, luxuriant bathrooms to the top floor lounge with large open balcony overlooking the beach, it has it all.

The staff were there to meet and greet me, and were extremely helpful. At the same time, the reason I booked an apartment and not a hotel was because I wanted to relax at my own pace, and in my own way, and they allowed this to be just so.

The welcome pack was another great touch, just making sure that you have a gentle start to a great weekend.

Whatever the weather, treat yourself, have a break, and settle in at the Sail Lofts you'll thank yourself for it.

Oh, and I didn't notice it on their site, but might have lost focus when I saw how beautiful the apartments looking in the photo's, but they have full wi-fi access which means you can connect to the world if you really need to.

The most beautiful apartments in a great location, close to the shops, pubs, restaurants and the beaches. They really have thought of everything. Highly recommend (and not just in the summer months!)

Now our fourth stay at Sail Lofts, fantastic as ever would now not stay anywhere else in St Ives. This time we stayed in Beach and again it did not disappoint. Spacious and beautifully furnished. wonderful welcome pack and always a treat to look forward to. Close to town and restaurants, if weather not so good easy to get back to. Great place to stay all year round. Sail lofts has just got it so right. Staff all really helpful and an easy booking process. I really cannot fault anything and look forward to our next stay. Definately five star accommodation without a doubt.

2 weeks in November with Sail Lofts turned out to be one of our most memorable holidays in Cornwall. The accommodation (Lighthouse) was fantastic & made our break so enjoyable and comfortable. We found so much to do in the area (Jazz Club, Arts cinema, theatre in Truro, walking, eating out) or just spending time in the apartment relaxing (apart from me doing the washing & ironing!).
Self catering does not get better than this (as they say..). In fact a recent winner of Masterchef is chef at the nearby restaurant, where you can even get a discount with your Sail Lofts card...
PS Many thanks to Kelly for her help while we were there.
