Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We returned to Sail Lofts St Ives for new year and were not disappointed. St Ives at new year is such fun, the harbour comes alive with people in fancy dress celebrating (family friendly) and the fireworks display at midnight was worth staying up for! Sail lofts provided everything needed for our stay to be enjoyable.

Great location and well stocked kitchen facilities over Xmas break. They had even put a Christmas tree up and decorated it in the house and they had left an anniversary card and bottle of champagne for my parents and a birthday card for my wife’s birthday Communication from start to finish was fantastic and every we asked for was catered for including changing bed duvets to the specifics of the 6 people staying in the house Car parking facilities were good for the stay be prepared to walk to your car once you have dropped your belongings at the house but it’s not an arduous walk to the car park Staff very attentive and would recommend this company and sail loft property to stay at. Sail lofts was a house over three floors with a huge upstairs lounge with a sea view and the rest of the property was split into a kitchen dining area - big family table to sit around and en-suite bathrooms for the bedrooms

Another fabulous stay at the Sail Lofts. We stayed in Beach this time which is a beautiful apartment with a large and bright living area overlooking the courtyard, three good sized bedrooms (and three bathrooms!) and a rather grand entrance hall. The weather was cold and rainy but the apartment cosy and warm, just the ticket! As always, five star accommodation in the middle of Downalong so everything is only a few minutes walk. The town is quiet in November which is lovely and offers a different type of break. Always good to visit St Ives but the Sail Lofts makes it fabulous!

We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at Sail Lofts this year. The accommodation is perfectly located, and has been absolutely superb both times, and the service we received from Kelly (who couldn’t have been more helpful), and all of her team, really couldn’t have been any better. Most definitely recommended.

We had a lovely stay at Sailofts. We were lucky to receive an upgrade to Godrevy at no extra cost. This made our stay even more enjoyable. The apartment was very well equipped and impeccably clean . We expect nothing less. The staff are professional and amenable. When we visit St Ives we would stay nowhere else.

I stayed in Lighthouse, a beautiful, bijou place, perfect for me as a solo traveller and a student at the School of Art for a week. It's decorated very tastefully and has everything you need, including being cosy and warm. The light in the living/kitchen area is wonderful, with velux windows and a double aspect view, from which you can just see a triangle of beach/sea :-) The hosts were super-helpful.

The apartment was lovely with everything you need including beach towels! Clean and very well equipped Very quiet location and a few steps to the beach, the addition of communal showers to rinse off before entering the apartment was a bonus!
