A really great apartment with some fantastic views of Tolcarne beach. We had a great stay and would look to book again in the future.
The apartment was fantastic for the summer, the balcony was great for having a relaxing few drinks in the evening watching the sunset. The location is amazing, right by the beach but very close to pubs, restaurants and supermarkets too. There was a good-sized fridge with a small freezer section too (As advertised). The bathroom was great and very modern. The lounge area had a very comfy sofa (although no armchair as had been advertised) and a 32” HD Smart TV with built in Netflix. The bedroom was large and comfortable with more great views out to the sea.
The only slight problems were that there was a broken leg on the table on the balcony on arrival, so I had to find something to prop it up with, but this was no major problem and easily solved. The hot water was a little hit and miss, but I stayed in the very hot first 2 weeks of July, so this wasn’t as big a problem as if I had stayed in the colder winter months. The oven was a little out dated and the illustrations on the unit were worn away, so it was hard to tell what was what and the instruction booklets left were not for that oven… cooking was tough, but there was a hob top which worked well. The washer / dryer washed the clothes ok drying them just didn’t happen, they came out after 2 hours still soaked through. I have read somewhere that the advised solution is to hang clothes in the shower and locker room downstairs, I have emailed the company to ask about this but have not yet had a reply (I did only email a day or two ago, and they were excellent with replying to my questions before I stayed). I may just take a clothes airer with me next time and put it up on the balcony.
I certainly would stay here again, and I highly recommend it to anyone else, either another solo traveller or a couple.
Superb location by Tolcarne Beach in Newquay, and the view from the property is absolutely stunning. Brilliant underground parking and access. First impression was good but our stay was marred by the fact that the property had been empty for at least a couple of weeks so the heating had only just been turned on. Maintenance man said it takes 2 weeks to get to full capacity. Whilst not really cold while we were there, sometimes when coming in from a long walk we were chilly, and sat and shivered. Also, the hot water was erratic to say the least and despite "boosting" the heater, we had only lukewarm water for the first 2 days and after that had to wait ages for it to heat up properly for showers. Lovely uplighters in bathroom but we'd have preferred coat hooks/towel rails, and in the hall. If wet, no idea where we'd have put coats. Had to keep waterproofs and fleeces in wardrobe as it was. Never seen a combined hob, oven and dishwasher before! D/w so small we had to use it twice a day, and never figured out oven because wrong instruction book given. Small fridge with just a small frozen food section. Inventory way out - e.g. no armchair, and many other things listed not there. Rather basic equipment provided. Self-catering so sometimes wanted to stay in in the evening - no dvd player. Very disappointed with this. Overall, a beautifully presented apartment, but too many niggles, so afraid we wouldn't go back. May be better if it's really hot outside!
I stayed at 12 Rocklands where I was on holiday and part working from home. The views from both the living area and the bedroom were absolutely perfect. Jo the property manager handled all my queries quickly and efficiently. It is a great location and I will definitely return.
Excellent apartment which is very well maintained,enjoys beautiful views.Would definitely stay again.
Lovely Apartment, very comfy bed. Fantastic view from balcony. Every amenity within walking distance. Underground parking space so car secure throughout stay. Lift to apartment so easy to unload. Water was near to boiling hot so be careful
