This was our second stay at Zennor, we were there last year. The apartment is bright and a good size. The bedrooms are also of a good size and bed linen crisp and white. A cream tea was waiting for us when we arrive. The location of the Sail Lofts is great as we can walk around the town and along the beach and sea front and not have to use the car. The Sail Lofts is in a quiet location. The apartment is well equipt. I hope very much to be able to visit again next year.

This was our third stay in Curno. As always the accommodation was spotlessly clean. We love the light and airy third floor living, dining and kitchen area. There are two Juliet balconies with partial views over to the Island and hills. Lovely light in the mornings and evenings. Overall, the standard of accommodation is excellent. We would definitely recommend a stay. Out of season is just as good as the busy school holidays.

This was our first visit to St Ives and we were delighted with the Sail Lofts apartment (we stayed in Driftwood). The location was great (we could hear the waves from the apartment!), apartment was modern, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We couldn't fault it in any way. There's parking that can be reserved a short walk away too. We will certainly be back

Hi
We stayed at the Saillofts in September . Apartment was Godrevy. This has a street level entrance and a staircase to the 1st floor which had two excellent appointed bedrooms . One room had a television and both have opening out onto a "Juliet" balcony. The bathroom was small but ok , well decorated. However the lighting above the mirror did not work as designed. The downlighters need to be angled so that ones face is actually illuminated !

Above the bedrooms is the very spacious living room and kitchen area. This was well appointed and even had a view of the beach on one side and the Island on the other.

We have no hessitation in recommending the saillofts . We will be back .

This was our second stay in Beach, a three bedroomed, three bathroomed apartment with a beautiful open planned lounge, dining & kitchen area. As soon as you enter the apartment you are aware of the exceptional quality of the building, furnishing, facitilies and attention to detail.

This is not your usual 'holiday home' this is a second home where you could happily live. Everything you want or need is here and even luxurious touches like a tv in the family bathroom to entertain kids.

St Ives is a stunningly beautiful place with wonderful sandy beaches, blue green sea, great restaurants, Tate Modern & other galleries and unique shops, so different from the average High Street. It even has regular visits from local seals to the harbour to seek fish from the fishermen. A stroll there after dinner to watch the seals is a perfect end to the evening before retiring to your Saillofts apartment.

Saillofts is the perfect place to stay to sample all of the delights of St Ives & the surrounding area. It is just s few steps from Porthmeor Beach & a couple of minutes stroll from the harbour & its restaurants.The beds are large & comfortable and the apartments are a wonderful place to relax.

The mangement & staff are as helpful as possible and can even offer a chef or cooked meals & spa treatments as required. They can even offer car parking spaces, essential to be able to fully enjoy a stay in St Ives!

We cannot recommend Saillofts highly enough.

We came back to st Ives this year after we stumbled across the sail lofts whilst out walking by the beach last year. The complex is in a prime location just seconds from the surfing friendly Porthmeor beach and the calmer Porthgwidden beach. The wet room is a welcome amenity to keep body boards and sandy wetsuits out of the spotless apartments. We are a family of three staying in the two bedroom Harbour apartment which does not have a door into the courtyard but out on to a quiet street. The front door opens into the lovely open plan living room/kitchen/diner. The bedrooms and bathrooms are downstairs and are very well equipped. The staff were very helpful and the only drawback for us was a few early morning noisy neighbours when we wanted a lie in! Our bedroom window opened out onto the courtyard which stayed shut after the first few days of noise. We tried to consider other families with small children when arriving late back to the apartments (our daughter being 12 has just discovered how to stay in bed in the mornings!) when eating out later in the evenings. We just wish the same consideration could have been shown the other way around and that families with smaller children up and about early could have been quieter (even though it was not the children shouting to each other across the courtyard!) It did slightly take the shine off an excellent stay at the sail lofts.

Spent a week in the Sail Lofts (Zennor) as part of a family holiday, with children and grandchildren taking another 3 of the apartments, and have had a marvellous time. St Ives itself is a fabulous place with high quality everything, the beaches in particular. Sail Lofts has a prime location and the quality of the accommodation is superb.The staff, in particular, are incredibly helpful and accommodating. All in all, a magical holiday. Thank you Sail Lofts!
