There was no hot running water and a technician had to come out twice. Dodgy toilet seat. Bathroom fan didn’t work. When we arrived after 5 pm the cleaners were still in there and although we didn’t rush them out the place was very dirty. Not what you need after a 6hr journey. There was old Elastoplast,old sweets and tissues etc on the floor in the bedrooms. Sofas were very dirty needed updating and replacing Like most of the furniture. Everything felt sticky and dirty. Bin outside was overflowing with rubbish before we put it out for collection. Hairdryer was extremely old and overheated after 30 seconds of using. The photos made the cottage look a lot bigger than it was.most of lamps were broken. The place smelt bad and fusty especially the downstairs bedroom. There was no tiles on the kitchen floor just some kind of underlay that was filthy. The tiles where however under one of the beds! I don’t believe it was finished to high enough standard to be let out and charged over £1100 a week for. I have stayed with Aspects previously and would have highly recommend them before, but on this occasion I’m very disappointed

We are so sorry for what you experienced on this occasion. We have spoken over the phone since receiving your review and having booked with us before, we hope that you will know that this kind of thing is not the norm. We have spoken to the owner of the property and are pleased to report that all your points have been addressed or are in the process of being addressed. If any areas were not as clean as you would expect, we can only apologise but the 'sticky' feeling that you mentioned is likely due to the fogger that the housekeeping team use to sanitise all room surfaces on changeovers. We are sorry if that gave you extra cause for concern on top of the other issues. Thank you for letting us know so that we have been able to follow up on the areas highlighted and we hope that with what we have discussed since, you feel a little more reassured about things. Tanya, Customer Services

Wonderful holidays in well located Polly's cottage. We love St Ives!

Jul 2020

A delightful little cottage in an excellent location, so close to the beautiful Porthmeor Beach, Harbour, and restaurants.

Oct 2019

Polly's Cottage is a lovely old cottage of some age. It is very nicely situated for the island and just around the corner from Porthmeor Beach. Porthgwidden and the Harbour beaches are just a short stroll away. It has a sweet front garden and and the stable front door allows the lounge to extend into the garden. The cottage has all the amenities needed to enjoy a stay in St Ives and is situated with good access to town with some excellent local restaurants on the doorstep.

Aug 2019

Nice Cosy Cornish Cottage..Great Location With In St Ives, Excellent Sea Views From The Back Bedroom,Great Access To Porthmeor Beach.. Location Ideal Just A Short Walk To All Amenities What Are Needed For Your Stay. Thanks

Jun 2019

We had a great time at Polly's Cottage. Would have liked a free parking spot, but the Island Car Park was just 100 yards away and we managed to get a spot, even after a day out in the car. Not sure how this would have worked out in the height of summer, though. Brilliantly placed for Porthmeor Beach, The Harbour, Porthgwidden and the town centre. Would definitely come back.

May 2019

Lovely cottage clean and tidy everything you need. close to beach and town Carpark short walk away would highly recommend we loved it

Mar 2019

Polly’s cottage is in a Lovely location, I can imagine in the summer with the beach on your doorstep it would be perfect. Very clean and very comfy beds. We had a lovely holiday, and Aspect staff were very friendly and supportive. Many thanks ??

Mar 2019

A lovely, warm, welcoming cottage in a fantastic location, backing onto gorgeous Porthmeor Beach. It’s compact but cosy and the bedrooms are all good sizes with super-comfy beds. You can hear the sea from every room and the seating area at the front of the cottage is a lovely addition. The five of us (including our four-year-old daughter) had a wonderful, comfortable stay and we will definitely return to Polly’s Cottage again.

Feb 2019

This property is a real let down. It’s location is the best thing about it. The whole place needs a total facelift, starting in the garden. Very disappointed

We were so sorry to hear this, and have since inspected the property and spoken with the owner. A member of the team has been in touch with you already but we are pleased to report that the owner has had trades in to decorate and undertake some other maintenance work. We are pleased to also report that the bathroom will be undergoing a full refurbishment later in the year. Thank you for getting in touch to let us know; we do inspect the properties, but there can be a lot that changes in a short time and we will always work closely with property owners to ensure that the properties continue to meet expectations and are priced accordingly for the facilities on offer. Tanya, Customer Services

Only one point to make the blind in one of the bedrooms the one facing the roadside had a broken slat on it and it was thick with dust, the rest of the cottage was spotless. The location was perfect, the cottage was very quaint and cosy and the beds were really comfortable

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really sorry if any areas had not been up to the usual high standards. We have since had trades attend to the blind to repair this, and are very sorry if it had not been cleaned properly for your arrival. Thank you for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Services

Love the location - perfect for capturing Porthmeor sunsets and the little front garden for a coffee and chatting to passers by. Going to sleep with the sound of crashing waves. A very sweet cottage close to the town but in a relatively quiet position.

Aug 2018

Easy weeks holiday, relaxing little cottage. Very clean. Been twice now & cant wait till the next time.

May 2018

Great location but in need of plumbing update and bathroom is in need of updating

Reply from Aspects Holidays

When you are staying in a property, you get to experience things in a different way to how we do, when we inspect them, so your feedback is really helpful, thank you. We have passed on your comments about the bathroom and plumbing update to the owner, for his consideration, and will also add that to our inspection notes, to look into. Thank you again. Tanya, Customer Services.

Great little cottage in a fabulous location and dog friendly. Thank you Aspects very good service ??????

Nov 2016

Wonderful location, Doggy guests welcome and the ease of everything set up and easy to use. Made to feel very welcome and the cottage was cosy making our stay very comfortable. Thank you for the welcoming Wine, Biscuits teas and coffee this was a lovely touch! The kids gave it a big thumbs up often nipping around the corner to play on the beach!

Nov 2016

This comfortable little cottage, in its excellent location near the beach is perfect for a dog owning family. We will be staying again!

Jul 2016

Lovely fisherman's cottage ideally located for Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches. It has a small front garden which offers additional privacy and utility. Lovely to hear the sea from the cottage and also to see if from one of the bedrooms.

Aug 2015

First time we have been disappointed about booking through Aspect Holidays. Sorry if you feel the comments are unfavourable but it is an honest repsonse.

Jul 2015

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for sending in your review. We genuinely apologize for the fact that you found the condition of the property to fall below your expectation and your previous experiences with Aspects. We visited the cottage during your stay and placed the new TV and rugs in the property, reporting our findings to the owner at the time. He has since carried out a bit of a refurbishment including new laminate flooring and soft furnishings. I am aware that we have since spoken with you about your feedback but thank you again for bringing your comments to our attention. Tanya, Customer Services.

Not likely, I don't want anyone else finding this dog-friendly cottage in the best location in St Ives!
