“Alright”
Reviewed 24 January 2017 for a stay in August 2016

There were ups and downs to this stay. The house was extremely clean apart from the shower heads they were a little dirty. The kitchen was especially clean with an amazing fridge. There was two broken draws in my room which scared me as I read the list of things you had to pay for and was scared they hadn't already noticed so I would have had to pay for it. The beds were extremely comfy and I slept extremely well, however they did not supply any towels so I had to use my beech towel which to be honest is something you would expect. Friendly owners they were really nice. The hot tub was also very clean which is great as other people have used it. However, although I criticise the accommodation it is in an amazing location near to many different activities. I would recommend this accommodation I feel they have to work on some things as the list of rules and regulations did alienate us especially the cleaning we had to do before we left was ridiculous, like cleaning the fridge, stripping the beds, cleaning the oven. I mean I understand tidying your mess but that is ridiculous I mean we're supposed to be on holiday, I didn't realise we had to do the cleaners job too.

Thank you for your feedback. Whilst you have pointed out a couple of issues during the course of your stay, we do encourage our guests when meeting and greeting you, to mention to us any problems that may arise during the course of your stay, so that we can deal with them immediately. As mentioned in a previous review of Salty Towers by another member of your party, the one dirty shower head was addressed and the chest of drawers needed minor maintenance to secure the front face to the drawer. We supply hand towels, bath mats and tea towels for our guests but we do not supply bath towels. This is clearly stated on our website. We are aware that our exit procedure list is quite thorough, but it is in the Terms and Condition on our website. Our housekeepers have had some very bad experiences with guests leaving our property in a disgraceful state so we have introduced the exit procedure list to ensure that Salty Towers is maintained to a high standard for yourselves and future guests and because of this list, it is extremely rare now that we have to implement additional cleaning charges. Once again thank you for your feedback and that you enjoyed your holiday in our beautiful town.

“Great House in Fantastic Location”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We have just got home from a fantastic week over new year at Salty Towers. Having been let down the day before we were due to travel on another property we had booked, Dawn came to our rescue and we cannot thank her enough. The house is lovely, with plenty of room which we needed as there were 8 of us staying and another 5 people visiting but the house accomodated us all brilliantly. As for the location all we can say is 'Wow'. A brilliant location, the dogs loved their daily walk on Fistral Beach and the center of Newquay was less than a 10 minute walk away. An added bonus was the hot tub which was great. All in all Salty Towers made our family new year holiday perfect and we will definately be booking again in the future. Thank you once again Dawn and Gerry!

“Really good location and accommodation ”
Reviewed 20 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016


Salty towers was huge for our group of six, making it a very comfortable place to stay... The bedrooms were all a very good size, however the en suits were very small!! The hot tub was amazing and very clean. The only slight point to make is about the list of extra charges in the kitchen, which includes things like, have to be out by 11, further down says 11:30, extra charge of quite a lot! Lost keys £40! Having to strip own beds, clean oven! However, The shower head in our bathroom was covered in black mouldy stuff so before you make us clean the ovens, please clean the showers properly!

Other than these few very minor points, it was fantastic, the sea views are worth every penny

Thank you for your feedback. We have addressed the issue with the shower head. It's unfortunate that you didn't let us know about it during the course of your stay as we would have replaced it immediately.
We are aware that our exit procedure list is quite thorough, but we need to ensure that Salty Towers is maintained to a high standard for yourselves and future guests and because of this list, it is extremely rare that we have to implement additional cleaning charges.
We would like to thank you for choosing to book with explorenewquay and that you enjoyed a lovely holiday in our beautiful town.
