Our stay at the locker was brilliant the location was perfect for us we love the walks and beaches so close to the bars and eateries we had a fantastic week

A very well equipped, cosy property with an excellent location for St Ives town & all the beaches.

Comfortable and cosy accommodation within minutes to beach , shops and restaurants. Would definitely return to this lovely little cottage and would recommend.

This is a wonderful little cottage and most excellent if like me you are disabled

All OK

We have just returned from our 9th stay at The Locker. We absolutely love this cottage as it has everything you could possibly need. Very close to all beaches, restaurants and the town centre. Our dog Luna also had a fabulous time.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Locker. It was our first time in a self catering apartment and we were very pleasantly surprised. Everything we needed was provided. The description we received from Aspects was totally accurate. It was very clean and comfortable. It had a WiFi Smart TV Radio washing/drier machine. Close to restaurants and beaches. Really recommend this property

Great cottage for 2 plus dog, compact and bijou and well decorated throughout. Bed really comfortable. Cottage location is 5 star and near to beaches and all the restaurants, cafes etc. We did some fantastic walks from the cottage to Zennor, Lelant and Penzance. We had some fantastic meals including Sloop inn ( vegetarian fish and chips !!). Would thoroughly recommend

Great location for easy access to the many wonderful attributes that St Ives has to offer.

The locker is a very comfortable place to stay, with everything you need for a great holiday. Good use of space and a decent size shower room. Ideally situated for beach and the town. Definitely would stay again.

We have just got back from The Locker in St Ives. Location was fantastic, right between Porthmeor and Porthgwiggen beach, just a few streets away from the main bars and restaurants, so you dont get too much noise. The apartment had everything we needed, lovely warm shower and great TVs for snuggling up in the evening. The only negative I would have to say is because it's a ground floor, there was a bit of noise from upstairs because they had children, and as lovely as the sash windows were they let in noise into the bedroom. Wouldn't recommend for light sleepers, but overall a lovely week away to relax on the beach 

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It was great to hear how much you enjoyed the fantastic location that The Locker is in. Thank you for making us aware of the noise from the property above. This has only been mentioned once before, so it certainly doesn't appear to be a regular occurrence and clearly varies greatly depending upon the occupants in the property above, which is also a holiday let. The road noise is again, not something that is regularly commented on, but this summer has been considerably busier than normal, so for now we will continue to monitor feedback on this. Thanks for the feedback and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer services

Location of the Locker excellent. Small but comfy and warm. We enjoyed our holiday in this property

Fabulous location, helpful owners and cosy clean studio perfect for a couple and small pooch. Would highly recommend.

Great location easy to get to the shops and beaches and great for dog's. The Locker is clean spacious and comfortable have always enjoyed our stay here.

We had such a good week staying here this year and love how we got to take our two fur babies with us we have booked for two weeks next year!

This was our second time at The Locker. This time we brought our dog Ruby who enjoyed it as much as we did. This cottage is in a great location within easy reach of all what we needed. Well equipped and clean and tidy. Would recommend and will probably stay here again.

A cosy dog friendly cottage,on one level very close to Island,Porthgwidden&Harbour beaches.

Although weather was terrible, a most enjoyable holiday. Location of the Locker is so convenient for getting around St Ives.

Lovely property in a fantastic location. The cottage is very small but was perfect for myself and my husband, we loved that we could take our two dogs on holiday with us. It is very close to two beautiful beaches.

Excellent location for this part of ST Ives.

Had a fantastic time,the property you can not fault

Lovely Cottage in a perfect location. Hopefully be back soon.

Accommodation compact but very well equipped and comfortable. In an excellent position to access main areas of St Ives. Smart TV a bonus.

Ideally situated for beaches and town with friendly owner

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.

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.

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.

Compact and bijou property in central St Ives location.

My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous short break with our dog. The location is fantastic and the accommodation very comfortable and well equipped for 2 - we would definitely recommend this property and will be booking again!
