"The apartment was spotlessly clean and well appointed. It is in a very convenient location being close to Carbis Bay beach and the coastal path to St Ives one way and Hayle the other way. The train offers transport both ways too at a very reasonable cost and provides excellent service with trains running every half hour. The apartment had everything we needed. It was light an airy with views of the coast. Riveria apartments are about 35 years old but the accommodation had recently been modernised and had parking which is a real bonus." Lizzie Cook
A lovely apartment in a great location
"We loved Gwinear apartment. It is in a good location with a great view. It was spotlessly clean and very well stocked. The beds and pillows are very comfortable and the white towels lovely and fluffy. Also, the welcome gifts were much appreciated. Carbis Bay and St Ives are beautiful and we loved Cornwall. It is only a short walk from the apartment to the train station to get a train into St Ives and only costs £1 each." Diane
