“Super-relaxing holiday”

Our stay at Admiral Cottage was for one of the coldest weeks of the year but we had a great time int his warm and snug cottage. Tastefully modernised and fitted out to a very high standard this is a gem of a property with fabulous views out over the harbour from both the living room and the main bedroom. Although situated just off Fore Street with the shops and restaurants just yards away the cottage was an oasis of peace and quiet..

“Perfect in every way”

A lovely cottage with wonderful views over the harbour. Central to town but tucked out of the way to enable peace and tranquility. Well equipped for all your needs. The cottage has a gorgeous bath where you can relax and unwind. The cottage is real delight .

“Excellent location but definitely not 'luxury'”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

The cottage couldn't be better located for the town and beaches, it really is ideal and in its slightly elevated location it has a stunning view of the harbour from the kitchen/sitting room.

If you are planning on travelling with more than an overnight bag, this place is really difficult for packing and unpacking the car - up or down a flight of stone (and in our case - wet) steps, it was incredibly hard work.

The cottage itself is very well laid out and perfect for a family travelling with a grandparent. The kitchen is well equipped with most things, although the oven and roasting pans were all very dirty and oily so we had to clean them before use,

Both double beds were very uncomfortable and in no way luxury. If you intend to use their travel cot I would advise against it, our toddler slept terribly waking up complaining of a sore back (which has never happened before).

They use the word luxury in the description on the homepage so I would at least expect comfortable beds and handsoap, we were also asked to strip the beds which was not really what I would expect.

“Great location and amazing views”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

A lovely, well situated cottage that is quiet and peaceful whilst being in the very centre of St Ives. We were a party of 5 ( 2 parents, 2 young children aged 8 and 5 and granny!) and the property worked well for us. It's small but compact and has everything you need. The views are amazing, making breakfast a real treat. My tip: bring some nice bath stuff to relax in the huge, stylish bath tub!
