We were greeted with a letter saying the heating wasn't working and neither was the heated towel rail, the owner had provided an electric heater which was totally inadequate so had no means of drying anything, not great for a wet and windy Cornish weekend! We found the bed very small and the sofa uncomfortable. However, the flat was clean and tidy and in a fantastic location.
Great location....only thing missing is a sea view.....and that would double the cost!..Number One is a little gem. Ideal for a couple like my husband and me, although there is a sofa bed, I think to have 3 there would be pushing it. The apartment was clean, especially comforting in Covid-19 times. We found it well equipped, although not impressed with the cracked wine glass left in the cupboard. An idiot guide to the dishwasher would have been handy. I hopefully did turn it on when we left the property as requested, but wasn't too sure if it came on! Can thoroughly recommend The Victory Inn for a meal and The Watch House. Loved St Mawes, can't wait to go again. Oh andadvise guests if they want to get bread on a Saturday from the bakery, go before 9.
We came down to Cornwall on 29th September until 6th October 2018 and stayed at Number One in St Mawes. We found the apartment very comfortable and it felt like home to home! On arrival the tea and biscuits were very welcoming after our journey there. The location of the apartment was perfect, as we were only 30 seconds from the harbour! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to come again next year.
Small is lovely for this apartment. Perfectly located, comfortable and ideal for a couple. Possibly a small table and chairs to eat at would be good ..... but a small point as we personally tend to only eat breakfast in and dine out on an evening. All equipment in great working order and WiFi much speedier than our village up north!!! Would definitely stay again but next time we will have daughter and dogs in tow ..... any ideas for places to stay?
Exactly as described if a Ittle expensive for what it is. Convenient location. Nicely kitted out and clean.
A brilliantly situated property with all you need. Cannot fault the fixtures and fittings, however on a personal note the mattress could do with being a sprung variety rather than a foam one as it was too soft for us.
A studio flat with a high standard of finishesand equipment, very close to the waterfront and ideal for two. The notes left by the owner were comprehensive and very helpful. Having read previous reviews, as a 6-footer, I was concerned about the bed but it was fine. Lack of a dining table is a problem but we managed. Parking is a problem but we were able to stop outside to unload before continuing down to find a parking spot. As we were exploring the area, we were out for most of the day and, on return, I was able to find a spot on the front each afternoon and stay overnight for free. It just meant that I had to get back by 8.30am to move it to the jetty parking for an hour (£1 for an hour). We found eating out and drink prices high. £8.50 for a 250ml glass of red wine in the St. Mawes Hotel was extortionate.
this was our second visit to no1 and would recommend it to our friends, nice location just back from the harbour front.
Excellent location and value for money in autumn. Bathroom had little pieces of mould around the tiles. Otherwise no complaints. St .Mawes was good for visiting all the attractions we desired.
We found the one roomed apartment very clean and ideally located, we had a lovely stay. The bed was rather small and the pillows uncomfortable, which didn't make for very comfortable sleeps. Also, the sofa wasn't very comfortable either, it was hard to sit without sliding down the seat.
Number One is a lovely comfortable apartment in the delightful village of St Mawes. Everything was close to hand, we didn't need to use the car at all. A very relaxing break.
Number 1 is compact but cosy . Well equipped for two and well maintained. Downsides were the short bed ( and I am 5'6 ) ,the lack of a dining table and chairs , and the slippy leather sofa. That said, we had a wonderful week in St Mawes. Best meal we had was at Porthminster Beach Cafe in St Ives, but we were glad to get back to the relative peace and beautiful location of St Mawes.
It was a great place to stay, cozy, clean and well equipped. If you are there for water sport, it is a great spot as it is very close to the sea. Otherwise it is an isolated small village, with narrow roads, almost all with double yellow line and just a small shop which is the coop. The accomodation is great and cannot ask for more than they provided. Keep up
Excellent accommodation in prime position . The lack of dining table and chairs for older people who are not used to eating off their laps was the only problem
Ideal location in the centre of St Mawes, Only 100 yards to the quayside, bakery, butchers and well stocked Co-op. Although there is a pub serving decent food with a good atmosphere within 100 yards, it was nice and quiet.
Our stay at Number 1 was great. The mattress was comfy, location central, Modern Decor. My only complaint is there was only 1 Bin Bag, and no freezer.
Number one is located perfectly in the village of st.mawes, very clean and compact and even had a dishwasher. We are not keen on leather settees but you cant have everything , and one small detail there were only 4 coat hangers in the wardrobe, otherwise we had a great stay.
This small and perfectly formed studio apartment is an excellent base for visiting the Roseland Peninsular. It is in such a great place, St Mawes is one of my favourite places in Cornwall. Only one criticism - the bed was too small and a bit soft.
The accommodation is fine, didn't appreciate towels were not provided, my fault as I didn't read the two mentions that they are not provided. In other holiday cottages they are, so be warned. The bed has a tailboard, so if you're tall, your feet will hit that. Otherwise, fine, the shower is excellent, the mirror is lit, so appreciated by my partner for making up etc.
Perfect little apartment for a couple who want a base that is so close to everything. Clean and tidy, very welcoming, had everything that you could possibly need. Dishwasher was a bonus! Bed was extremely comfy and the lavender scented pillows were a nice touch. Bathroom was well equipped and not a bad size. Very pleased that we chose this apartment!
the accommodation was perfect for a couple and in a great spot. Very cosy and the only thing that was missing was the washing machine. Apparently they had replaced it with a dishwasher earlier in the year and we hadnt been advised. One of the reasons it was chosen by us was because it had that in the apartment so it was rather disappointing.
