Chandlers Marina Apartment
Reviewed 21 October 2012

We booked this apartment because it promised accommodation in the heart of Fowey with great estuary views and a balcony and we were not disappointed.
We received the keys in the post in advance and arrived at 12am to be greeted b a nice clean apartment.
The apartment is situated on Fowey's narrow one way system and we parked at the nearby Caffa Mill car park on a £35 weekly Cornwall rover ticket. Worth getting if you're travelling about for a few days in Cornwall.
Location is great and a short walk into the town centre and it's many good restaurants, cosy bars and shops. We visited the local quay bakery for our daily bread and ate at the Galleon the Boathouse and the King of Prussia, all offering good food and a friendly atmosphere.
The apartment comprises a balcony with room for 2 chairs and access to the foreshore below at low tide. Lounge diner with great view of the Daphne Du Maurier house and Boddinick ferry; TV, functional sofabed and chair plus a table and 4 dining chairs. The fridge, cooker and dishwasher are all adequate with the usual crockery, pans and cutlery also available.
Bedroom again comfortable with 2 single beds bolted together to form a 6 foot bed, all overlooking the estuary.
Bathroom adequate with bath and shower, plus a cupboard providing ironing board and iron.
Heated throughout the apartment with functioning electric heaters.
We also liked the overall ambience of Fowey and particularly the river trip and my partner liked the nice bijou shops which were all open even in October. All in all a great location, excellent views and a very comfortable apartment in a lovely town.

Room Tip: Lovely ground floor apartment for 2 people

We went to Fowey for the weekend and this self catering apartment was perfect for us. It is located right on the river front with a balcony over looking the river where you can watch the world go/float by, it is a short walk to all the shops and (excellent) restuarants of Fowey and also on the doorstop to many coastal and riverside walks. The apartment , which I understand has recently been bought and renovated by new owners was spotlessly clean, light and airy and very well presented with everything you require from a self catering apartment (with the added benefit of a great view!). Facitlties wise, the bathroom looked to be brand new and was high quality with a great shower!

We were very comfortable here for our few days in Fowey and were just sorry we couldnt stay longer.

My girlfriend and I had a great time in Chandlers in August 2010. The appartment was simply and comfortably furnished and had all amenities required for our stay.

The location on the river is fantastic and it is a few minutes walk from the center of Fowey. We had perfect weather and spent our time walking on the coast path (easily accessible by foot from the apartment) and exploring the river by canoe.

I have recommended the appartment to friends and could easily see myself staying again.

We ended up staying in Chandlers without checking the reviews which was lucky as we probably would have been put off......

Fortunately for us the apartment now has new owners who also run self catering cottages in Pembrokeshire, so our experience was entirely different. We found the apartment to be clean and tidy, the location perfect and were delighted by the helpfulness of the local representative.

We stayed for a long weekend and managed to fit in 2 walks around to a lovely Pub at Polkerris and took the ferry across to Bodinnick and walked around the headland at Polruan.

I subsequently recommended Chandlers to a friend who I believe has since stayed there - and my boyfriend and I are intending to return this year.

Was compelled to write this after reading the other "review" .We too booked Chandlers a couple of years ago, I can't be sure which month, only to be called the day prior, to be told there had been a flood and we could no longer have the appartment.We too were offered alternative accomodation in the owners hotel up the road .We passed the appartment on foot and there was no sign of anyone dealing with a flood .Clearly some kind of con and best avoided.

Booked this apartment for a weekend stay through Late Rooms. Unfortunately, when arriving at the owners sister hotel to collect the keys to the apartment it was to be told that the apartment had flooded and we wouldn't be allowed to stay there. This was hugely disappointing particularly because the owners made no attempt to contact us and we had travelled all the way to Cornwall from London. They offered us an option to stay at their hotel instead but this was some way out from Fowey where we were meeting friends for the weekend so this was not a suitable option. Interestingly enough only a couple of days later it appeared that the flooded apartment had been restored very quickly as it was available again for rental again almost immediately on Late Rooms. The owners were slow at refunding my money and I had to chase this up twice.
Couldn't help but feel I had been given the run around with this apartmernt.
