  • “When we arrived on the Friday afternoon we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the apartment.”


    We emailed you about our cleaning issues on the Saturday morning, later that morning we had a phone call from a Chester number apologising and informing us that the Housekeeper would be returning Saturday afternoon to address the issues. We also had an email from 'Property Management' at Carbis Bay, again apologising and stating that the Housekeeper would be with us that afternoon. Nobody came, so the three of us spent Saturday evening cleaning. Nobody contacted me from Carbis Bay Holidays for the remainder of our holiday. As the week progressed we noticed more and more things that led us to believe that the apartment had not been cleaned at all. We have been customers of Carbis Bay Holidays for nearly ten years and have always been impressed with the quality of the accommodation and the standard in which they are presented, so much so that we have never considered another letting agent when booking our Cornwall holiday. We are now not confident about booking for next year.

About the location

With turquoise waters and sheltered conditions, the beach feels almost subtropical and is the perfect spot for a good old-fashioned day by the sea. The beach is also home to the Ocean Sports Centre, so if sunbathing is not really your thing, why not hire a kayak or SUP and get out on the water instead. Or why not treat yourself to a Spa day at the delightful hotel which overlooks the beach and has a fabulous terrace where cocktails can be enjoyed in the Cornish sunshine? Carbis Bay has a small range of local shops and restaurants as well as a fish & chip takeaway and railway branch line.
