We booked pentire as it had a pool and a sauna, and the rooms seemed clean and fresh.
Not so much.
We arrived to a building site but thankfully being the bankholiday the builders were not on the premises. Having booked our rooms together we were allocated one on the first floor (opposite the door to the stairs, and had a gap under the door so not very private) and one on the third floor.
Third floor room was disgraceful, bathroom dingy and then when my friend drew the curtains they fell down on her. The new room she got offered was covered in mould so she declined that and asked them to fix the rail instead. They told her "oh yes this happens quite a lot, we need new curtain rails!" Her shower then ceased to work only to be told, "we're at the top of the hill and your on the third floor so theres probably not the water pressure to have a shower at the minute......"
Our room was mildy better as had been 'refurbished'. I can't help feel they need to buy higher quality products as our bathroom was very nice but the shower had already fallen off the wall so we had to prop it on the shower rail and sit under it or hold it whilst in the shower, and the carpet whilst attractive didnt have any underlay so would wear quickly. The curtains were the old 1990's patterened ones without any liners so didnt really keep out the light.
We tried to use the sauna, but it wasn't working. We didnt try the pool.
Long walk into town as well which cost money in taxis. Is close to fistral beach though.
