If you are looking for 5* accommodation with the added extras of a wonderful team onsite that offer a personal concierge service look no further.

We were able to drop our luggage off, which was stored for us until our apartment was available at 2.00pm (we booked for an early check-in, instead of the standard 4.00pm, which did come at an additional cost). The standard of the... More

This is our 3rd stay at The Sail Lofts and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Ocean is a large 3 bedroom apartment with a view down the slipway to Porthmeor beach. The apartment is immaculately clean and beautifully designed. The kitchen is well equipped as is the whole apartment including beach towels and wind break. Very happy that the... More

We have been visiting St Ives for many years and stayed in different places every time. We won't be staying anywhere else now! We stayed in Ocean for a week and it was absolutely superb. The staff were absolutely brilliant and couldn't do more.

We booked at the very last minute and the communication via email / telephone with Kelly was very good, thank you Kelly. We arrived mid evening and we managed to locate the apartments with the help of the directions emailed through in the informative welcome pack, despite the one way system. The key system was also easy to use and... More
