"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. “
