Very clean light and airy appartment with a pleasant view over roof tops to the sea. Kitchen supplies meant it was possible to cook reasonably well at base. We had a lovely stay

A lovely apartment. Very comfortable and very well equipped with everything you need. It was extremely clean. The views were lovely from the lounge area. Would definately recommend.

Lovely well equipped and comfortable apartment . Beautiful views. Our 2nd visit and won't be the last.

Perfect location for exploring beautiful St Ives.

Very Clean, light & airy, good views. With parking is a big bonus, but car space not very wide. Aspects Customer service excellent.

Really good experience from start to finish.

We loved this apartment. It truly felt like a home away from home. We travelled with a young baby & the apartment was the perfect size for the 3 of us. The bed was super comfy, and the bedroom was big enough to put up our travel cot. The apartment having a washing machine & dishwasher was very handy. We loved the location, there was a stunning view from the living room window and a short walk away from the town. The walk to and from town is steep, but not too bad. It was wonderful to have a parking space, however it is as tight as described. It's in a very good location so you can pull the car up in front of the space, unpack, and then park up. All in all we had a lovely stay and would certainly return.

Would definitely recommend this apartment for lovely break in beautiful place

We had a lovely stay, clean and well equipped with a great view. Highly recommend.

Very basic flat that does have all the basic things to get you by. Clothing storage is terrible as only has 3 drawers and no hanging space. Car park space is very very tight and small. Be careful of the shower when you switch on because the pressure is very high and it blows off and floods the bathroom. Lovely view

We are sorry to hear that you had been disappointed with some areas of the property. We aim to offer a wide range of properties that we hope will meet the different budgets, differing requirements and individual tastes. Whilst this property is not marketed as one of our higher end properties, this helps to keep it more affordable when compared to others of that size, location, with sea views and parking, but of a higher spec/more modern decor. We always try to ensure that the photos and descriptions are accurate, including parking space measurements, so we do hope that this was what you had expected. Your comments are automatically sent on to the property owners, so that they can consider any suggestions for future improvements though, so thank you for the helpful comments and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely apartment. Excellent location. First visit to St Ives using Aspects Holidays - won't be the last! 5+

Wonderful flat in St Ives - perfect for a couple. Great price, great view and very well equipped in the kitchen. (We really appreciated the extras like dishwasher tablets and foil.) Very comfy bed. We really enjoyed our stay here!

You can’t beat the view from the lounge window of the coast line

First time visit could not have wished for a better apartment with beautiful view of bay. With all home comforts, would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family.

17 Lyonesse is a great apartment.

Very well equipped, lovely comfortable bed and very cosy.

5-10 minutes walk into town depending on whether you are going to or down the hill.

Great to have a parking space although as previously stated it's very tight. Talland Road can be quite busy at times so be careful when trying to back out.

There is no wardrobe but adequate draw spaces.

We had a lovely week using this apartment as a base. Great location with sea view. Very comfortable bed, spotlessly clean. It is an uphill walk but perfectly manageable and only 10 minutes or so walk to the town and nearest beach. Great to have a designated parking space although it is very tight as described. Take a few hangers as there were only 2 provided but plenty of drawer space. Would definitely recommend this apartment and the service provided by Aspects Holidays.

Fantastic apartment, great views, very comfortable, great location.

A petit apartment that is close but far enough away from centre of St Ives. Lovely views of Godrevy from the dining table. Parking space is a massive bonus in peak periods.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this apartment. Everything was exceptionally clean and modern. I would definitely stay here again. The location was great, not too far from the action but far enough for it to be peaceful. Can't wait to come back Julie - July 2020

A nice little apartment close to town with a parking space! Quiet and comfortable with a lovely glimpse of the sea. Be warned though, that as with much of St Ives, it is a very steep walk back home.

An ideally situated property close with allocated parking space and 10 minute walk into town or nearest beach. Small but adequate for a couple with a great view of the bay and across to Hayle.

Nice view from the bay window and not too far from the town centre. No outside space.

This is a one-bedroom apartment with a great view of the bay from the living room window. However the furnishings and equipment are very old and tired. We would not return to this apartment.

Thank you for your helpful comments and we are sorry to hear that this is not somewhere that you would return to. Following receiving your comments, we have now been in to inspect the property and report our findings to the property owners, who have already confirmed that they are replacing several items and will be visiting themselves soon, to check on the rest of the feedback. Tanya, Customer Services

A well located, comfortable and compact apartment that has everything you need. It takes about 10 minutes to walk down to Porthminster beach and about 20 minutes to walk to the St. Ives harbour area. Although the apartment is in a great position and has a lovely view it is a very steep walk back from the beach or town and there are 3 flights of stairs to climb from the front gate so it kept us very fit! The car parking space is very handy but quite small and is very difficult to negotiate with a larger car.

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, St Ives isn't the flattest of places, with many properties sitting perched above the town. 17 Lyonesse takes full advantage of its position above the town to gain a lovely sea view, but you do have a bit of steep walk up to the property from the town and beaches as a result. There are just 12 steps up to the property from the parking at the back, but as you mention, if you are coming in from the front gate, you do have more steps before getting to these. It is certainly something to consider before booking but we are glad that you agree that once inside, it is worth it. Thank you also for your comments about the parking space; we have now amended the information to advertise it as being suitable for small to medium size cars only. Tanya, Customer Services.

Lovely apartment for 2 people, parking is difficult and gorgeous view well worth money when it’s only few minutes walk to st ives town! Definitely will come back in the future!

An excellent location, parking onsite which is important in St Ives. Excellent, Thank you.

Suitable for our stay in St Ives. Well equipped and having allocated parking space meant we could go out during the day with piece of mind that we had somewhere to park the car when we got back.

Very clean, comfortable and pleasant apartment. Aspects are very professional and helpful and will definitely be booking again

Lovely compact apartment ideal for a break in St Ives

Lovely apartment close to town.

The property is in a nice position for exploring St. Ives and all the surrounding area.

We had a lovely stay at the Lyonesse apartments. The view from the living area is beautiful. With Porthminster beach a 5 minute walk away the location is perfect. Would definitely stay here are again.
