“Very comfortable, excellent location.”

The apartment is right in the middle of the town, only yards from the waterfront and all the action, so location is a big plus. One down side of the location above a shop, though, was 5am deliveries right below the bedroom window every morning, which fortunately usually only lasted about 15 minutes. It took a couple of nights to get used to this, and the owner does give a friendly warning about it. As pointed out, this is part of what living in a busy little town is all about.

The apartment is very well equipped, with everything almost brand new, and very comfortable.
The only very minor grumble was that even at this very cool time of the year (April, and NOT a warm one), the bedding (duvet) was far too "generous" to sleep comfortably without turning all the heating off and opening windows wide. A few previous visitors had made the same comment in the apartment's "Suggestions" book, so we're adding a reinforcing suggestion for optional lighter duvets here. We've been travelling around the UK for a couple of months now, and find overly heavy bedding (with no lighter options provided) a common occurrence.

Padstow itself is very much alive, even on the coolest spring day, and full of places to eat and simply sit and watch the passing parade.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would recommend the apartment and the town to anyone,

“A perfect getaway”
Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We loved staying in this place, and wished we could have spent more time here. The flat is fitted out to a very high standard, and was beautifully decorated. It has everything you need, including a fully equipped kitchen, so we were able to prepare all our own meals - except the one trip to Rick Stein's restaurant a few minutes walk away. I would thoroughly recommend this place and could not find any fault with it - a really enjoyable stay!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 27 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Stayed here for a long weekend in February and couldn't have asked for a better location. The apartment is bang in the middle of Padstow, with everything you need on the doorstep. My only concern would be that I could see it could get noisy in the summer, as we could hear all the conversations of passers by in the street, not that this bothered us. The apartment itself is well equipped, spotlessly clean and cosy and warm. Will definitely return, but not in summer,

What a lovely apartment, really well furnished with everything you could possibly need for a great stay. Great location and a good base for exploring Cornwall. Will definitely return again.

“Excellent location near harbour and superb accommodation”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The entrance to the property is not ideal but when you get inside it is superb. It has everything you need for a self catering holiday apartment although we only ate in at breakfast time. The quality of the furnishings is first class and in excellent taste, It is warm any inviting and is sizable and not cramped, You should not let the entrance up to the front door distract you from the excellent accommodation.
The main downside is that as a central location in Padstow. It is above the post office and to the rear of a public house. There is little or no evening noise except form the road at the front of the building, The post office below the apartment means that you can hear noise from below very early in the morning which is not ideal for holiday makers who want a lie in. Delivery of beer to the public house although not too early in the morning definitely woke us up. The question of noise is highlighted in the notes in the apartment's facilities book. Tip on eating; try the Prawn on the Lawn opposite, its superb.
