Had a lovely stay, very clean appartment compacked, but everything you need. Good central location.

Clean, tasteful arranged 2 persons-flat in the city centre next (not to close) to Newquay train station and the beaches. Literally all the general shops of your daily needs just across the street. Kitchen very well equipped and exemplary description how to check-in/departure. Also ideal for people arriving by car. Don't look/read any further just go ahead & pass a reservation!

What a fantastic find! A very central yet quiet apartment near to shops, the beach and the station. A bright and light place which is perfect for a couple or single person with everything you need right to hand. Parking is generous and close-by making arrival and departure very easy. I would recommend The Anchorage to friends and family.

From start to finish, Aspects Holidays have been a joy to deal with. The little things have made a massive impact and we have already passed on to family and friends how impressed we have been. A change of towels and top up of toilet roll would have been great because of us staying for 11 days and a full length mirror would have made things a lot easier. The location of the property is spot on and parking was always available. The room was clean and tidy with lovely decor.

Nice apartment, great location for going out for breakfast/dinner with many beaches within walking distance.

However, we had a few problems, the first was that the front door lock stuck while we were inside and we were trapped in the apartment. We called Aspects amd they came to help us within 10 minutes, the lady was great and called a Locksmith to fix the problem. The mattress was quite uncomfortable, and the springs were poking out the sides. The toilet seat was not fitted properly and slid when we sat on it. And the glass shower door is far too close to the sink, so you can only open half way as not to hit the sink.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were really sorry about the issue with the lock. Unfortunately, things can sometimes go wrong in properties and whilst there was no way to foresee this issue occurring, we appreciate that it would have been an inconvenience for you. We were glad to be able to get this resolved quickly for you though. The toilet seat has now been replaced and we will pass on your comments about the shower door, to the property owner, for their consideration, if they are looking to make any changes/improvements soon. Mattresses can be quite a tricky thing to get right for everyone, as we all have different preferences, though if there are springs sticking out, that of course is a different matter. We have not had any feedback on this previously, but we will get this checked and contact the owner if it needs replacing. Thanks for your helpful comments and we hope to see you again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Upon arrival we contacted the office as we were unsure of the location of the key safe. The lady on the phone was very happy to help us and very polite and friendly. When first going into the room we were dissatisfied as it seemed that it hadn’t been cleaned very well (maybe cleaned a long time ago and hasn’t had any guests until us) so we spent an hour cleaning the whole room (even finding a brick under the bed). Other than this, the room was comfortable and in a great location which was only across the road from two beaches, a short walk away from Fistral beach and about 5 minutes away from Newquay town and Towan beach.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really sorry to hear of this and had we known at the time, we would have sent the housekeeper straight back. We completely appreciate that you would expect everything to be 100% ready for your arrival, but if the property had been left like that, that is certainly not what we would expect for guests and we would not expect you to have to clean up yourselves. It is obviously difficult for us to be able to act upon this now, having not had the opportunity to assess and rectify it at the time, but we have passed on your feedback to the housekeeper, and we will closely monitor further feedback. Thanks for letting us know and we are glad that you still had a great time here. Tanya, Customer Services

We pretty much only have praise for the property and the company. The booking was smooth and easy, anytime we contacted the office we were greeted professionally and with a positive attitude. The property was lovely and a great find, we felt fortunate to have found it plus it came with some personal touches and help e.g. a pint of milk and biscuits but this would have helped by having a few tea bags. The only other negative was no full length mirror or mirror near a plug for women’s requirements. A towel rail would have helped drying towels. Other than that, it was a superb stay in a great location at a reasonable price with parking. Thank you

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments; we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time at The Anchorage. We are sorry to hear that you didn't have any tea left for your arrival though; we know a nice cuppa is normally first on the list of things to do when you arrive after a long journey (it is mine anyway). You would usually have some tea and coffee provided, so this must have been an oversight on this occasion. Thank you also for your suggestions of a full length mirror or one near a plug, and a towel rail; very helpful comments. Your feedback is automatically sent to owners, so that they can see guest suggestions, and we will also monitor for any further comments on this over the coming months. We hope to see you back here in Cornwall soon. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services.
