“Very comfortable, convenient rental”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I stayed at Overstrand with my parents and my 8-year-old daughter in July 2013. The apartment was very comfortable, with everything you could need for your stay. The location was great -- just upstairs from a shopping center with all kinds of stores and restaurants. The shopping center closes down at around 6pm or so, so noise is not a problem. The flat is across the street from the marina, and just a short walk from the main Penzance town areas, including the Jubilee pool. The apartment was very clean, and having a washing machine and dryer available was a huge plus for us, as we were in the midst of a 3-week visit to the UK.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

A lovely little home at a great price. Very spacious and perfect for four adults. The Overstrand has everything you need and is in a perfect location. We were surprised how nice and well equipped it was for a rental property. We would definitely stay again. Thanks very much for the wine and biscuits!

“Great Accommodation”
Reviewed 4 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Good communication with owner. Accommodation central and as described. All amenities available. Central location for town centre and overlooking harbour. Only downfall is there should be access to the main lifts in the evenings for residents as service lifts we found to be cumbersome,intimidating and and uninviting. Would recommend staying at this location.

Liked best: Well furnished and comfortable. Great communication.
Liked least: Main Lifts shut off in the evening. Service lifts intimidating and industrial can be very off putting. Parking secure but very industrial and near to garbage cans.

“Everything you need in a great location”
Reviewed 1 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

This apartment was lovely, very homely and has everything you could possibly need. It is in a great location right in the middle of town so close to shops and the train station. During the day there is a lot of noise from the shoppers downstairs but with the windows closed was not enough to be a bother at all and anyway, on holidays you are out and about rather than in the apartment during the day anyway.

Only complaint is that the escalator and lift are shut off after hours which means a big climb up the stairs getting home at night, and in my case, down the stairs with luggage when leaving for an early morning train.

Hi Linda,

Thank you for your kind comments. We're glad you enjoyed your stay over the Christmas break.

Sorry to hear about the inconvenience caused by the centre lift and escalators not working at night. They are turned off for security and safety reasons. You might not have been aware but the service lifts leading to the secure car park are in operation 24/7 and can be used when the others are not in service.

The centre did see an increase in numbers during your stay as the Christmas holidays are the busiest time of the year. The house is equipped with double glazing to keep noise to a bare minimum.

We hope to welcome you back soon.
Thanks
