Brilliant service from Aspects

Whitehorses is a beautiful flat with simply the best view of the harbour and town. Could have sat and watched the view for hours (& on some days we did!) Flat was really quiet, no noise from other flats, traffic or town. Nicely furnished and good quality equipment. Quite a walk back uphill from town, sometimes I felt too lazy and took a bus back -bus stop right outside flat. Direct path to Porthminster beach but again it is quite a climb back, but that is the price to pay for such a spectacular view. I would not hesitate to book Whitehorses.

This apartment was perfect for our holiday. Very high spec, beautiful view, walk to the beach and parking !! Amazing.

Would highly recommend Morwenstow apartments. We stayed in White Horses. Loved the cleanliness and clean look of the apartment and the wonderful balcony with the beautiful views. Kitchen very well kitted out with high end appliances and well stocked cutlery and crockery. Plenty of wardrobe hanging space and very comfortable beds with pristine bedding. Bathrooms very clean and modern with excellent showers. An extremely impressive apartment, will definitely be returning soon.

The most amazing apartment, the view from the balcony was beautiful! Heated floor in the bathroom was a lovely touch. The whole apartment was well equipped! Would defiantly be visiting again and would fully recommend it.

Beautiful apartment & great location! After always staying in the centre we was worried about staying further out however it was great to get away from the busy paths!

The garden area was amazing and we would definitely recommend however it was very stuffy in the evenings as the bedroom didn’t have a window (only double doors - which meant we couldn’t sleep with them open) so Unfortunately this left us with sleepless nights :(

Thank you very much for your review. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the benefits of that lovely location. If you are staying here again, I am sure that we could arrange a fan in case you are lucky enough to get some of our lovely warm Cornish weather. Please do noy hesitate to get in touch if that is something that may help. Lucy, Customer Services

There’s nowhere like St Ives when the sun is shining!

Whitehorses is the most perfect location for a relaxing and romantic holiday in St. Ives. I have been visiting St. Ives for over 30 years (sometimes 5 times a year) and this is the best accommodation with the best views that I have ever stayed in. It is simply perfect. Aspects are a delightful company to deal with and their staff are fantastic.

A fabulous apartment in a wonderful location. Aspect we’re very helpful and pleasure to deal with. Thanks!

St Ives is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and the view from our flat was so beautiful we almost didn't ever want to leave. The doors slide fully open and create a wonderful indoor/outdoor living space. The kitchen is quite small, but fine for light cooking. It is up on the hill, so prepare to feed your fitbit a lot of steps, steep steps! But it's worth it for the view!

Just perfect in every way!

First time in Cornwall absolutely happy with the service provided by Aspects. The apartment was perfect and very high spec. Location was perfect for quietness and also to explore St Ives harbour walking distance. Would stay again without hesitation. Ranj and Vicky

This is a great property with absolutely fantastic views of St Ives. Property is well appointed with everything you need. A short walk into St Ives with a good selection of Restaurants (would recommend Porthminister Kitchen, The Digey for lunch and the Thai on the front). Parking is a real bonus this close to the centre. This was our second stay and we hope to return soon.

The apartment in St Ives was exactly as described in the brochure. Only had to be there two days before we booked it again for the next year!

The view was the selling point for this property. Lovely to see at the start and end of the day and see the changing scenes. You really are floating about the sea. The lady on arrival who cared for the property was very helpful.

Best holiday accommodation we have stayed in

Lovely apartment in a prime position overlooking St Ives. Would definitely recommend it.

The Morwenstow apartments are in my opinion the best in St Ives and although expensive are well worth it!

My family cannot wait to return next year, so the saving starts now!

Great location and views

First class accommodation. It was exactly as described on the web site. We felt as though we were the first ever occupiers. It was also great that a company representative seemed to be on site most days ... not that we had any problems. Cannot recommend highly enough.

The property even surpassed our expectations. The view ist just overwhelming and we appreciated the quiet area close enough to the sea, beach, harbour and the village to walk there in short time. The housekeeper knows how to make guests feel welcome and provides a very friendly service. The apartment is equipped with modern appliances and contemporary furniture. Everything clean and user-friendly. We would also like to mention the provided parking spaces in front of the building, which were very convenient.

sometimes photos are misleading and make places look better than they really are but here its the complete opposite...

We loved staying at this apartment, very tempted not to publicise our views in case it gets too booked up. The views are stunning and we had some glorious sunsets to watch from the balcony. It is in great condition, a pleasure to stay in and only a 5 minute walk to the lovely Porthminster beach. We dragged ourselves home reluctantly.

Stunning apartment in a stunning location. Highly recommended!

Absolutely stunning property, beautiful views and spot on location for exploring St Ives. I'd move in tomorrow!

Stunning views, stunning property, great location

Super clean Super view Super service

The bed is far too soft. The settee is awful. Bit the views and location are fantastic.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments, the views from there certainly are fantastic; glad to hear that you enjoyed them. We are sorry that you found the bed and sofa uncomfortable; it can be very difficult to find a mattress that will suit everyone and it is dissapointing to hear that it was not to your preference. As the Morwensow properties are newly built and furnished, both the beds and sofa are just a few months old, but we will monitor comments to keep an eye on guests preferences over the coming months. Tanya, Customer Services.
