Exactly what it said on the tin.

5 of 5
Based on previous experiences, I don't take the description, I wait till I see it, feel it and touch it. We weren't disappointed. The location was ideal. The cottage was ideal for the wife and me. Ylenia and Paul were readily available with any problems or queries. Thank you both. It was one of the best beds we've slept in. Look forward to revisiting in the not too distant future.

Fantastic flat: fantastic location.

5 of 5
First impressions, although traffic is slow on the front, parking and off loading cases was fine. On arrival in flat we were like kids in a sweetie shop, rushing from window to window admiring the view. Indeed every free moment during the week was spent sitting watching life go by in the harbour. So restful. The flat was well equipped withcoffee machine, dishwasher etc. 3 toilets and showers and a bath: no complaints there. What probably sets it apart is the fact that the people at Orange Roofs were genuinely keen to make the experience as good as possible. Prior to arrival we got emails giving advice on how to maximise our stay. Also during our stay they were in contact. We had a problem with our HDMI cable. I emailed to say there was a problem but since weather was ok it was not an issue but to be aware for the next tenants. Within 24hrs a new cable was couriered to the flat. Now that's service! St Ives itself is lovely and the flat is located centrally so that restaurants and pubs are within easy walking distance. Overall this was a lovely holiday and the location and condition of the flat was an integral part of it. The service provided by Orange Roofs staff could not be bettered. Thank you so much.
