“Great place and superb views” I stayed for seven nights along with my 6 year old son and wife. Gwendrock Twyr is well positioned, clean and well appointed with modern furnishings. Although there is no official parking at the accommodation there is space up the lane where we parked on the last night as we set off early the next morning. The rest of the holiday we parked at the Mill Pool car park (£30.30) for the week. This was a nice short walk passing / visiting the bakeries and Cornish pasty shops on the way to the car. Looe is a great place to stay. We had poor weather for June, heavy rain and gale force winds. This did not dampen our spirits and I can recommend the walk to Polperro along the coastal path, canoeing at Fowey, a visit to St Micheals Mount, The Eden Project, Lanhydrock House and the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth. Take the Torpoint Ferry to Plymouth (£1.50) and you get a free close up view of the naval docks and ships. Back in Looe AVOID "Archies" for dinner. Overpriced food. Try the Sail Loft, superb food which has been cooked and prepared well.
We enjoyed Gwendrock Twyr. I would have rated the holiday rental as excellent if it had wi-fi and a clothes airer as children tend to go through lots of clothes especially playing on the beach every night. These shouldn't be seen as negatives but future improvements! There are games, books, toys and DVD's to keep the whole family entertained without having to leave the accommodation for the whole week. There are even binoculars which my son loved taking on our walks and spotting all the birds nesting on the rooftops in Looe.
“A relaxing break” A oasis - away from the busyness of life. Great environment - superbly furnished and modern design. Sat in the balcony enjoying the sun. Would highly recommend a stay here - I am sure I will be back. Thank you
“Excellent facilities and attention to detail, conveniently located for transport links!” I stayed here with my wife and two kids in Mid-March for one week, and the place was ideal. It had excellent facilities (everything worked from the off!), with ample room, and everything was spotlessly clean. Two bathrooms were a luxury, one en suite, particularly with two kids! The balcony was a real bonus. Very convenient location for accessing stress free transport to Cambridge, rail station and other local areas. Local supermarket just a few minutes away and restaurants and take-away''s nearby. The owner was very responsive and easy to contact - providing an efficient and friendly service. Having a dedicated parking space was also a real plus. I would fully recommend this place and would certainly use again when in the area.
“Excellent family stay in fantastic apartment” Myself and my partner visited with our two boys aged 1 and 3. A fantastic time was had at the beautiful apartment, arrival and check in was all very simple and the owners made us feel welcome. Great apartment in a wonderful location, would recommend it to anyone
“Wow, what a fabulous place” Don't like Brighton and had no intention of going there, noisy crowded and a bit tacky. However, looked and looked for a hotel with a seaview for a quiet break after an incredibly stressful time. In desperation looked in Brighton, still no suitable hotel, checked finally for a rental and found this place. GOOD CALL!
Fantastic sea view, and high enough that the noise and dramas of a Brighton weekend could have been on another planet. So much better than the best Hotel, as we just sat on the balcony, cooked our own food (big saving on overpriced noisy restaurants) and enjoyed the killer view.
The place wasn't big but absolutely perfect for a couple, and we reckon we'll go back and take the kids - we'll fit, and it'll be worth it.
Finally, the icing on the cake was the very best and most genuine service from the owner/manager. No customer care course graduate this, just someone who was enthusiastic, friendly and efficient. Nothing matches this.
However hard I try I can't think of anything negative to say - the only downside was the bongo drummer on the beach below in teh middle fo the night, and I can't blame the owner for that!
“Fantastic Weekend!” Absolutely fantastic weekend in at Rocket with a group of work collegues. The pictures on the site don't even nearly do it justice - views are incredible, and interior of the apartment to match. Both Cathy and Dave extremely helpful and able to assist when anything else required. Thanks once again, would 100% recommend the apartment for anyone looking to spend a weekend in style near the beach!
“An amazing luxury penthouse with first class facilities and incredible views!” We had the privilege of staying at this luxury penthouse over the Christmas period! The penthouse is just as advertised…with first class facilities and incredible views! The penthouse was decorated for the festive period and it was home from home. Sharon and Ged provided excellent customer service from beginning to end. What a great find!
