Ideally situated for beaches and town with friendly owner

Mar 2018

The Locker is a lovely apartment with easy access, we had a lovely time staying there and so did our little dog, very snug, warm and cosy.

Oct 2017

Fabulous little place to stay in St Ives, especially if you plan to be out and about all day. Comfortable bed and clean linens, the smart tv is a bonus. We will be staying again in the future.

If you are staying in winter I can imagine it is cosy as it has underfloor heating, and in summer when it's extra hot it is very cool in property due to the tiled floor.

We would recommend.

Jun 2017

The Locker was very grubby on arrival and lacked basic kitchen utensils. The cottage was noisy from the residents above it.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really sorry to see that the standards of cleanliness were not up to the high levels that you would have expected, and that you experienced noise from other residents. We have always had exceptionally good feedback for this property, which we would want to ensure continues, so we will pass on your comments and monitor this. We are sorry that we didn’t get the opportunity to investigate or rectify any issues for you while you were here, so that you might have enjoyed your time here more. Thank you for letting us know though so that we have the opportunity to follow up on this. Tanya, Customer Services

This is an excellent cottage and very close to beaches, restaurants, pubs and the beautiful harbour. This is the 6th time we have stayed here and could not ask for more. Our dog Georgie also loves it. The cottage has everything you need for a fantastic holiday. We will be back again in 2017.
