“Exceptional”
Reviewed March 20, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Superb contemporary apartment with a well equipped kitchen and large comfortable beds. Everything worked perfectly with instruction manuals for all the appliances. Well located near a number of popular tourist attractions and supermarkets. It would be difficult to find better accommodation. Very highly recommended.

“Excellent - well furnished, superb location”
Reviewed January 24, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Lovely apartment within easy reach of Charlestown as well as very well placed for visiting places such as Lanhydrock and the Eden Project. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped. Clear directions given, with very prompt response when we had a query on how to turn the heating on (thermostat in hall which we'd failed to notice!). We stayed just one night but would be perfect for a longer visit.

Liked best: Spaciousness and location
Liked least: Only one key - there were 3 of us staying just for one night so it wasn't a problem. If we'd been there for longer another key may have been useful.

“Top Class Holiday Apartment”
Reviewed October 18, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Water Wheel Apartments are positioned in a very central location within a 10 minute walk to the harbour with bars and retaurants. The accomodation is very spacious and comfortable and is very much like a home from home.

There are 2 large supermarkets and many other shops within a 5 minute drive. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are reachable within a 15 minute drive.

I highly recommend this property.

Having never stayed in an apartment before we did not know what to expect. 

Excellent directions given the week before along with codes for the keyholder so that we could arrive as late as we wanted. 

Very spacious with good quality furniture and all the facilities we would need. Tea, coffee and milk in the fridge on arrival. Even things we did not expect like cooking oil, cling film, tin foil and a pizza tray. 

With 2 bathrooms with the 2 bedrooms it was perfect for a family. Nice to have a balcony with seats and table to relax in the evening. 

With an Asda and a Tesco only a minutes drive in either direction for supplies, restaurants within walking distance and a lot of Cornwall's major attractions within easy reach it is in the perfect location. 

We loved the freedom of using an apartment and will use them instead of B&Bs or hotels in future. We just hope others are to the same standard as this one. The owners have put a lot of effort into making this a home from home.

“Excellent well furnished & convenient for Charlestown”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

There is not much to say about this apartment, it exceeded our expectations. Clean, quiet, spacious, location, free wifi. Every room was a good size, plenty of equipment in the kitchen. We were in the 1st floor apartment for 2 days/nights.
If there were any comments it would be 1) Could do with some hooks on the bathroom doors. 2) The towel rails are only on with the central heating which you don't want on in summer.
Would we stay again. Oh yes!
