“Apartment 5”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

This was our eighth visit to Mevagissey, but our first in self-catering accommodation. We usually stay in either a hotel or bed and breakfast and we would've carried on doing this, but for the new addition to our family in the shape of a small dog! The main reason we chose the Treloen Holiday Apartments is that they are one of very view (could be the only) dog friendly places to stay with a sea view in Mevagissey. We had also walked past the building everyday on our previous visits so knew it had plenty of parking spaces and is in the part of the village that we like the most - Polkirt Hill.

We arrived at about 4pm and were greeted by the man (he didn't give me his name). He was friendly and showed me around the apartment personally,(whilst my husband took the dog for a much needed walk after the long journey), to explain the electric meter and immersion heater (we used about £6.00 in electric over the week). We had booked Apartment 5 with 2 bedrooms even though there were only the two of us plus the dog. We are glad we did as it is quite small. Apartments 1 - 8 are accessed through the garden from the car park via a curvy slope footpath. They supply large trolleys to transport your luggage, so unloading the car was easy - I took everything but the kitchen sink so this made life much easier for my husband!!!

The kitchen/diner/lounge is small, but perfectly adequate. The kitchen was quite well equipped with basic cooking utensils, microwave, fridge with small ice box & electric cooker. As we had never been self catering before I was unsure what to take for the kitchen, but I was glad that I took my own chopping boards, washing up brush, liquid, dishcloths etc. We also ended up buying a non-stick frying pan from Asda, as we didn't like the one in the cupboard.

There is a dining table for four and two sofas, which were comfortable. The flat screen tv offers the usual freeview channels. As it was March, it was quite cold, but the heating was adequate and came on early morning and late afternoon till about 10.30ish. There was also an additional electric heater if you were cold.

The double bedroom was quite compact, but had everything we needed. The wardrobe had loads of hangers and there was plenty of drawer space and a mirror. The hairdryer was quite a good one and I was glad I didn't bother taking my own as it did the job. We took our own bed linen, but pillows, quilt and bedspread were provided. There wasn't a lot of room around the bed, but it did have a great sea view. The other bedroom is the same, but with twin beds and was a good space for us to store our bags etc. This had the same great view.

The bathroom is ok. It's small, but it did get lovely and warm when the heating was on so towels dried quickly. It maybe could do with a new suite, but it was clean and that's all that really matters. A shower with a screen instead of a curtain may have been an improvement.

We were lucky enough to be able to sit outside a couple of mornings on the bench on the patio, which was great. The view of Chapel Point and Portmellon is outstanding and is the Treloen's main asset. It would be lovely to sit out for breakfast everyday with that view or drink wine on the patio and watch the sunset in the summer.

On our first night we ate fish and chips on a bench by the harbour (unfortunately, it must've been an off-day for the chippy as the chips were very dark brown and the fish was vile) . This prompted us to eat in the apartment every other night after a trip to Asda in St Austell to stock up on more food (I had already taken loads with us!!). The Shark's Fin, the Ship Inn and the Fountain (I think) all allow dogs. We took our dog in the Ship Inn for a drink and he received a warm welcome.

Regarding dogs in the apartment. They are only allowed in the kitchen/diner/lounge and cannot go past the kitchen door into the corridor to the bedrooms and bathroom. They are also not allowed on the furniture. This was fine for us as we only have a very small dog, but I think there may be a problem with space if you had a bigger dog. They also have to be kept on a lead outside, which was also no problem to us (our dog probably would've fallen over the cliff anyway!!!)

The owners are always around if you have a problem, but we were left to ourselves all week which we liked. We were worried that we would miss a cooked breakfast made for us, but it was great to get up when you like and eat what you want. We did miss our evening meal in the hotel though!!! It would be good to visit here in the summer (if the weather was fine) to make the most of the great outdoor space available. There were only a maximum of 4 apartments let when we were there, so it was very quiet and peaceful.

We would return to the Treloen Apartments in the future, mainly for the location and because we can take our dog. It has everything you need for a lovely holiday, especially if you are lucky enough to get dry, warm weather. I know our dog is looking forward to going back again soon!

I stayed at the Treloen Holiday apartments in August 2011. The setting of these apartments is just amazing looking out over the cliffs and sea. The gardens offer a great place to relax and sit to eat and watch the boats as the gardens are private well maintained and have pinic benches.

The room was well maintained and clean. The Appartments are down some steps from the carpark however there is a ramp provided as well.

The appartment we had and the second bedroom off this first this was good for us but may put some off.
This is a very nice place and ideal for exploring Cornwall.

In easy reach in the lost gardens of Helagon.

I will be returning

We,ve been back to Treloen Holiday Apartments for 2 weeks in October November. Its just the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, a warm friendly atmosphere.
Wonderful view to wake up to, we saw some great sunrises this time. All apartments have a private balcony to sit and let the world go by. Little fishing boats lit up at night like jewels in the sea.
The apartments are always well looked after, very clean and welcoming when we arrive after our long journey. The laundry room at the end is very handy, washing machine, dryer, iron, especially if you,re there for 2 weeks.
We,ve met lots of people over the years we have been staying at Treloen, some we still keep in touch with, most of them go back for another holiday. We,ve booked again for next May and September. Brilliant place!

My family and I love this area of Cornwall and have been visiting for many years, we have found Treloen to be our favourite place to stay. The location is excellent, on the hill between Mevagissey and Portmellon and therefore a short walk to both, and with the most amazing views over the bay. The apartments are constantly being improved and modernised to offer everything you need during your stay. The owners always give us a warm welcome and are helpful and accommodating. Our family consists of all ages, from teenagers to the 'slightly over 65's' (and the dog who also loves it!). The apartments cater for us all and they are easily accessible for my parents with walking difficulties. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

We've just returned from our first holiday at the Treloen -and have already booked our next visit. The apartment was spotlessly clean, with a very well equipped kitchen. The lounge was very comfortable with leather settee, wall mounted TV and also a CD/radio/ tape player - with spectacular views to Chapel Point and the sea. We watched the sun rise one morning - wonderfull! The owners were friendly and approachable - and their dog was lovely too. Mevagissey itself was very relaxed - the walk down took about 10 minutes ( 15 back up!). We especially loved to see Mevagissey lit up at nightime - another brilliant view. Overall the apartment was excellent value for money.

Just returned from a week in Megavissey at the Treloen appartments. The views are excellent and the appartment was clean but there it ends. Access to appartment 9 is via 29 steep exterior steps and a long exterior walkway behind the back of the other appartments. Not exactly practical on any leval.
The appartment is badly ventilated (if at all) and smells foisty and feels damp. The refurb is very basic, the woodchip has been painted white and there is some new lounge furniture but otherwise it is very basic. The bathroom is grim and the bed is very uncomfortable to say the least. You pay £16 for the priviledge of using their sheet and pillowcases and a duvet cover that is frankly hiddeous.
Megavissy is lovely and Cornwall is geat but if you go there make sure you are not in appartment 9.

Room Tip: Avoid room 9, the rooms with leval access will be better. Location is only siutable for people with...

Treloen, Owner at Treloen Holiday Apartments, responded to this review, 27 September 2011
We are sorry these guests did not enjoy their stay. Perhaps we can just clarify a few points as we feel this review is misleading.
Access to Apt 9 is down a standard flight of steps from the car park level, 10 metres along a walkway and then up a standard flight of steps. This opens up to the most amazing view of the bay. NB some of the apartments are on a level access from the car park but a lot of the apartments do have steps (standard dimensions), so if there are any mobility issues it is always a good idea to discuss these first wherever you are staying.
Re. ventilation in the apartment - there is an opening window in the bedroom, the bathroom and kitchen area both have extractor fans, the lounge has patio doors.
We are sorry these guests did not find the bed comfortable, the mattress is less than a month old, and the previous week the people asked where we had got it from as they had found it so comfortable - a very subjective matter.
The centre of Mevagissey is only 500 yds away, and you can cut through the park area which is not so steep as the road.
The pictures on our treloen website are a true representation of the apartment.
It is very disappointing to receive a negative review as we work hard to ensure our guests have a pleasant experience when staying at Treloen, but we are pleased to say that most of our business is from repeat customers.

We have just had a wonderful week staying in the treloen appartments, we had appt 1 which was on the lower level and on the far end.The view was absolutely stunning it was a shame that there wasnt patio doors with this appt but nevertheless there were two large windows so it wasnt that disappointing.The bedroom was adequate for all our needs and everything was very clean.As for the meter it was fine used about £5 all week and the water didn't take long to heat.The appartment is only a five minute walk into mevagissey but be prepared for a climb back up the hill but you have a treat of a seat at the top to take in the views over the harbour.
We arrived at about 1pm and our appt was ready which was a great bonus,there was a trolley to use to take your bags to the room which is a great help.The owners are building some more appt next door but it is not a problem as it is well screened off and very little noise was heard.So all in all we had a great week and would i reccomend it yes i most certainly would.
