"Once again, a very enjoyable stay at Glas Mor."
"What a fantastic apartment, the views are just perfect, we took our nearly 2-year-old who loved the open plan apartment and was in heaven watching the local trains go by.
Whilst he was asleep, we had our dinner on the balcony overlooking the incredible views, we felt relaxed and at home very quickly as did our son.
"Glas Mor is an excellent apartment, very spacious, well equipped, and comfortable.
The view over the Bay from the huge windows and balcony is fabulous."
"Excellent apartment on the third floor with a large slide opening double glazed window in both lounge and bedroom giving the perfect sea view. The long balcony is accessible from both double bedroom and lounge. Two decent sized double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and flat screen televisions with perfect reception. Very comfortable beds. Nice big private gated carpark with designated parking spaces. The apartment is reached via stairway or lift.
On a separate note, the lift was not working properly from midweek onwards. Although inconvenient, it did not spoil our enjoyment."

"What an amazing place! 2nd stay and hope to stay many more. Thank you for letting us stay here. Great time spent with family"
"We had a fabulous week at Glas Mor. From the moment of our arrival (early) when we encountered your representative (Claire?) who was putting the finishing touches to the apartment for our stay, to our departure everything went according to plan and we felt completely relaxed and stress-free. The apartment was spotlessly clean on on arrival and beautifully appointed. All appliances worked as they should and all the facilities were first-rate. The location, with its proximity to St Ives and its ease of access via the St Erth Express, was ideal for our requirements and the unobstructed views of Carbis Bay defy my descriptive powers."
"It was our second time at Glas Mor and the apartment was a lovely as we remembered it. Really perfect. It was our first holiday since my son had a stroke last May which was a real milestone and the accommodation was great for him. He currently uses a wheelchair much of the time but can walk a few steps with a stick and so being somewhere accessible was a priority.
The apartment is beautifully appointed and the lovely welcoming provisions were perfect - we particularly appreciated the champagne!"
“We had the most fantastic 5 day break staying in Glas Mor, the standard of accommodation was excellent and the views just breathtaking!! We have enjoyed it so much that I have rebooked for next year within an hour of getting home on Friday! We are so pleased we decided upon coming to St Ives and rediscovered all this beautiful resort has to offer and will be coming back for many years to come. We have travelled the world and I must say the apartment was one of the very best we have ever stayed in with all the high standards of fittings etc and the stunning sea views, Congratulations to the owners for ensuring everything is in place for all your needs. We just wanted to stay a little longer! We think all the little extra things in the apartment were very nice to have i.e the books, cd’s and films were great, the beach train was great also to access when the walking became a bit too much.”
"This is a wonderful flat with absolutely stunning views. It is spacious, peaceful and offers modern living. Shops and restaurants are readily available - everything you need for a great holiday!"
“Just to say we had a lovely time in our accommodation Glas Mor. This was our third visit to Carbis Bay using Carbis Bay Holidays and once again we were not disappointed!
The standard of accommodation was first class and sitting on the balcony watching a firework displays from the hotel on the Sunday evening was fantastic.”
“Fantastic holiday. Perfect location, stunning apartment and the photos don't do justice to the beautiful views. Could have spent a lot longer here. No better place to relax. Look forward to coming back next year.”
“Wow! 6th stay in Carbis Bay/St. Ives and Glas Mor was the best apartment yet. Amazing views and loved all the extras in the flat. Lucky enough to see a family of Dolphins playing out in the Bay whilst sitting on the balcony. “
"Glas Mor is a stunning apartment with stunning views."
