Stayed in Morveren for 5 nights over Christmas 2019. The apartment is modern, clean and well equipped. They could do investing in more comfortable seating in the lounge as only enough seats for 3 adults. The location is prefect as quiet and only 5 mins walk into the town centre.

We are glad to hear that you liked this lovely apartment, though sorry if the comfort didn't quite meet expectations. The owners currently provide 1 sofa and 1 tub chair, as pictured on the website, but having received your feedback they have informed us that they will have a look to see if it will be possible to fit a further tub chair in there without compromising on the space too much. If it is at all possible, we will update the details online to reflect the change, once we have confirmation. Thanks again for your helpful comments and we hope to see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

In a lovely position over looking St Ives, with a beautiful view over Porthminster beach. Not for the less abled, 2. Short flights of stairs to the entrance to the apartment. Steep walk back from St Ives. Parking spot is very tight for the larger vehicle.

We are glad that you liked this lovely apartment. Whilst it is on the ground floor, there are 2 flights of steps to the entrance and the parking space is one that you will need to parallel park into. We try to make the measurements as clear as possible on the website, so that anyone interested in this property can ensure that they can fit their car in. We are sorry if it had not been what you expected, but hope that you enjoyed the benefit of having a parking space there, which are in quite short supply in St Ives. Thank you for taking the time to send in your review, and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer Services

I have stayed there several times over the years and love the location and its closeness to the train station and town centre. It does need a little TLC now as its a bit outdated, but would still stay there as the location if perfect for me. Aspects were great and nothing was to much trouble. I also used ACE Taxi's whilst there and they were also brilliant and so helpful.

It certainly is a great spot which has proven to be very popular with many guests. We are pleased to report that the owners have been in touch to inform us that Morveren has undergone re-decoration since your stay, and it has also benefited from new patio furniture and new dining room furniture. Thank you again for your very helpful comments, and we hope to see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Fabulous location. Lovely modern apartments with parking although the parking for this apartment is extremely tight. There is no facility to charge hybrid cars yet. The apartment is fully equipped and very spacious. A lovely touch providing the tea, coffee, milk and biscuits on arrival. Not an ideal apartment for less mobile as the property is accessed via stairs. A fabulous holiday and well worth the money. Thank you.

Visiting St Ives and booking through aspects Holidays was brilliant. would highly recommend this accomodation as it has its own parking, parking in St Ives can be quite difficult so it's ideal to have an accomodation with parking and it's less than ten minutes walk to the beach and into the centre. accomodation is big and roomy. kitchen is well equipped for if you want to bring back fish and chips and eat at the flat. Dog friendly flat also. Great service from aspects holidays from collecting the keys to dropping the keys off also.

A lovely spacious, clean and modern apartment. The terrace and sea view is a bonus. Our family of five fitted into this property perfectly. Totally recommend Morveren.
