You may think that the name ‘Malakoff’ doesn’t sound very Cornish, and you would be right. The name commemorates a key battle in the Crimean War, in which the French successfully assaulted a Russian strong point, leading to the capture of Sevastopol in 1855. ‘The Malakoff’ is a small garden area located adjacent to the Malakoff Apartments, offering a magnificent vantage point for taking in the panoramic views across the harbour, Porthminster beach and St Ives Bay. There is also a fine bronze sculpture by Barbara Hepworth called ‘Epidaurous’ which can be appreciated.

"Really well equipped...a real bonus for parking...the only item we could complain about was the sofa...very low and uncomfortable...really needs replacing...definitely stay there again...very helpful service from the booking office and housekeeper.

“We thoroughly enjoyed Harbour Lights. What a great view! We were very happy with the property and had a perfect stay. Thank you for accommodating us.”
"We had a lovely time and were very impressed with the standard of accommodation, as soon as we opened the door and we saw how beautiful Harbour Lights was and that terrific view! Everything was spotlessly clean and we really appreciated the little treats. We had a couple of really good meals – Rick Stein’s fish restaurant at Falmouth marina and Porthminster Beach Cafe we also recommend coffee and cakes at the café on the Porthmeor beach and sausage and bacon sandwiches on the beach at Gwidden in the beautiful sunshine (which we didn’t expect in October). We also really liked the craft market and the farmers market (delicious nibbles – very good olives) at the Guild Hall – further afield we found a little café called Delicious at Marizion where we can really recommend the cooked breakfast (I think the ingredients were organic but everything was freshly made). It’s a lovely walk over to Carbis Bay but we really loved pottering around the town looking at all the lovely galleries and artisan studios - there are some very talented people in St Ives. We had a brilliant holiday and would certainly recommend Carbis Bay Holidays and Harbour Lights."

"We really did enjoy our stay at Harbour Lights in St. Ives. The standard of cleanliness was excellent as was the standard of the accommodation. Our favorite walk was catching the train down to Lelant and then walking back on the coast path through Carbis Bay we enjoyed it so much we did it again on our last day. There are so many good restaurants, we visited a mexican, a lovely Italian and a fish restaurant - all really good."
"We had a great holiday at Harbour Lights. The apartment was perfect in every respect in particular the stunning view from the bedroom and lounge. Regarding restaurants we particularly enjoyed the Porthminster Beach Seafood Restaurant. The food and service was excellent. On walks, we did the cliff path walk from the Lizard to Kynance Cove. Absolutely beautiful with spectacular views. Given there is a café on Lizard Point and another at Kynance the it makes for an enjoyable afternoon out. Also worth noting is Annes Pasties in Lizard Village - delicious!!!"
