    “Although the property was lovely, we felt the check in time at 5.”

    00pm & check out time at 9.00am was a shame as you are loosing a day of your holiday. I fully appreciate the apartment has to be cleaned well due to COVID but am sure the times could be altered slightly. There did also seem a lot of noise coming from people below slamming doors. Not very considerate for who else may be staying in the apartments.

A favourite suggestion for the energetic is to explore the South West Coastal Path. This stretches in both directions from St Ives, taking in the rugged coastline westwards to Zennor and the super sandy coves of Carbis Bay and Porthkidney Sands towards Hayle. Here a pint of Tribute at The Badger is a must! Dining Room The separate dining room comfortably seats four people for you to enjoy the wonderful dishes that an inspired cook can create with local produce and fresh fish harvested from the sea. If you prefer to dine out, then the acclaimed Porthminster Cafe is just a short walk away. One of the best beach cafés in Cornwall, and a favourite of our guests', this is not to be missed. Right on the beach, you have to try it to believe it. Other recommended eateries in St Ives are the Seafood Cafe, Blas Burgerworks and The AA rosette awarded Alba on the harbour front. Further afield why not try a leisurely breakfast at Godrevy Cafe in Gwithian or Jamie Oliver's "Fifteen" at Watergate Bay?
