“Lovely quaint studio flat”

We stayed here for three nights and were not disappointed. It is a lovely studio flat and a lot of thought has gone into the decor. The kitchen has everything you could want and more, from fridge, freezer, dishwasher in the bathroom there is a washing machine and tumble drier.
I was very impressed with the table in the kitchen it was once a Singer treadle sewing machine and a tiled top has been put on. Very original. The bedroom is lovely with two archways into it with voile curtains. There are books cd's and DVD's. It was lovely to hear the boats engines as they chugged out of the harbour in the early hours whilst we were snuggled up in bed.
The Blue Peter Inn is a few steps across the alley way but there was no noise or disruption from it. Would love to return in the summer to make the most of the little balcony.

“Lovely location disappointing accommodation ”

Stayed at the Pierinn Studio this week and overall were disappointed with the property. The studio is in a fantastic location and this was a major factor in us booking the accommodation and this part did not disappoint. However as for the accommodation what can we say. The property needs come TLC examples are curtains hanging off the rail, the shower needing fresh mastic around the tiles and the whole property needs a thoroughly good clean to include the pots, pans etc. We had to clean the kitchen area on arrival, the fridge had food crumbs in it and the saucepans had food stuck to the sides. The property with a little bit of time and money spent on it could be fantastic but for us in its current state no more than average at best.

Dear Joann,
Thank you for your feedback. PierInn Studio is a very popular cottage and is booked out constantly for the 6 months of the main season and it is at this time of the year we get to spend time on issues such as you have described. We have a planned redecoration and revamp during November (which we do every year) which will rectify these matters. We do our utmost to ensure the best standards for all guests that wish to make the most of the superb location. I am sorry the cleaning was not to the standard we expect and there is no excuse for this, had you raised the issue on arrival we would have instructed the house management to re-clean the property for you. Thanks again for your feedback.

“A little treasure”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This is not the first time my wife and I have stayed here, we have been here at least 5 times over recent years. It is a beautiful harbour studio for two people, it is comfortable and beautifully kept with a lovely balcony with seating for boat watching and seeing the fisherman bring their haul in. Everyone is so friendly. Polperro has some wonderful eating and drinking places, and if you enjoy walking, there are many good walks too.

“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We recently spent a week at the Pierinn studio for our honeymoon.
The location of the studio is absolutely beautiful, and the atmosphere very relaxing - we found it perfect being just outside of season, but can imagine it may get a bit noisy during peak as you are right in the centre of everything (but again, we loved that at this time of year.)
The studio itself was well equipt and a perfect romantic retreat. The TV hardly got turned on in the mornings / evenings as you just can't take your eyes from the view!
The only thing I did miss was having a welcome package as the previous guests say they had (especially as we were on our honeymoon.)
We would definitely return!

“Not one for all seasons...”
Reviewed 23 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I booked the studio as a self-organised writing retreat. It has a lot to offer, but two aspects took the edge of the whole experience for me. The first was that the bedroom alcove has no natural light at all so it's in shadow and only usable with an electric light on. This isn't obvious from the photos of the apartment of. The second, and much more important aspect, is that the heating is entirely inadequate for a winter let. The small plastic mock "wood burner" had no bulb in it, so sat like a little black Dalek in the room. It pumped hot air out from beneath it, which had an oppressive stifling effect. The air heat evaporated very quickly. I rang the house manager a week into my stay and requested a substitute. She said she'd see what she could do and I heard nothing back. Not the service I would have expected. Happily the pub opposite, The Blue Peter, had a fire and friendly staff, so I took refuge in there a fair bit.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay. I am sorry your request for additional heating was not answered and we will have to look into that. I must say I do find your opinion that the heating is inadequate somewhat of a puzzle as there is a wall mounted convector heater that heats the main living area in addition to the blow heater you described which is there to provide extra heat if required. The bathroom is heated by a large heated towel rail which keeps the bathroom lovely and warm all the time. PierInn Studio is let throughout the winter and this is the first time, in 12 years of letting, that anyone has ever had an issue with the heating. The owner will however invest in another stand alone electric heater so the issue you have raised is no longer a problem for anyone else who may share your view. Regarding the bedroom alcove it is clear from the photos that there isn't a window, again this matter has never caused anyone a problem before. Most guests spend there time sitting in the lounge or on the balcony gazing out at the fantastic view of the harbour and village. I am glad you enjoyed The Blue Peter and Polperro.

“Absolutely perfect”

This was one of the most perfect few days break we've had. The location is stunning looking across the harbour from the lounge and the bedroom!
Weather was so warm & sunny for the time of year which made it even more perfect.
We had wonderful walks around Polperro and along the cliffs which was rather a tough hike!
I would like to thank the owners of the cottage for this wonderful little place, couldn't fault anything. The place had everything we needed, lovely & clean, bottle of wine waiting on our arrival.... we really didn't want to leave, so please let us know if you are ever thinking of selling!
To top it off the best pub in the village, The Blue Peter Inn was 3 steps away from the front door, that was just too inviting every evening.
Thank you and we will definitely be returning.
