My wife and two daughters had a great week here, amazing view from cottage.
We made good use of the included hotel facilities (pool, gym, restaurant, golf) Many poi's within a 30 minute drive.
Will definitely retirn
Extremely pleasant golf break
Ever so pleased with finding this gem. First of all the golf. Two great courses. The Nicklaus ranks genuinely as one of Euopes best (do be prepared to lose a few balls though, this is a tough tough course). The inclusive golf package is just such great value. The two of us played 6 rounds during our stay & I calculate that it would have cost us about £800 in green fees alone.
On top of that the leisure club is extremly good too. Only went to the pool and spa bit, but very well fitted out.
Fairways was a great home from home to come back to. It was quite chilly when we were there and we were glad it was so warm. Views were amazing and very comfortable. All in all a wonderful stay. Thank you homeaway.
Oak wood posting misleading
Oak wood lodge is 5 miles from St Mellion Resort amenities. Steep sets of stairs to access the lodge.
Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately they are somewhat misleading. Oakridge is situated alongside the club and as we make clear, it is a 4-5 minute drive to access the facilities. The precise distance by car, according to google maps, is 2.5 miles. Not sure how this could be “misleading”, but apologies if you felt mislead.
There are a set of steps to access the property (pictured) and again the posting is stated as not suitable for the infirm. If you want lovely elevated views of the golf course, which Fairways has, then you have to somehow get to that elevation. We would recommend that all guests read the property details before booking.
yet another wonderful stay
superb stay, just had such a great time. St Mellion is still as great as ever for its golf and the pool is wonderful too. The views from Fairways are just perfect and it is such a lovely place to stay. well equipped, warm, and with decent wifi .We will be back. Thank you.
In need of updating
The location was lovely and the heating was good, but the DVD player, CD player and vacuum cleaner did not work, neither shaving light in the bathrooms worked, the towels were very smelly once wet, there were no accessible plugs in the twin room, the saucepans were so scratched they were unusable, the toilet in the twin room took 5 mins to refill, one of the twin beds was very unstable and the duvets were very old and stained. I would not stay here again.
Having read this review in some detail, we can only assume that this person did not stay here and has simply made a mistake. We have investigated each criticism thoroughly and (apart from one faulty light bulb) none of it was true.
However our main response is for the benefit of future guests, staying at one of our properties or indeed, elsewhere. If something is not right & can be made right, tell the owners / managers. Most have systems in place to rectify minor faults quickly. If any of the faults mentioned in this review had been valid, we could have fixed them within an hour or two. Yet this person (wherever they stayed) chose to just put up with it and then left a poor review. While this might satisfy their desire for some sort of revenge, would it not have been better to ask for these (relatively minor) things to be dealt with. We, like most property owners rely on guest feedback. Our cleaners do a great job, but it is not reasonable to expect them to turn on and test all the appliances and lights in a property while they are trying to prepare it for the next guest to arrive, So there will be occasions when a guest arrives and something does not work. We would apologise for that and get it sorted out and then hopefully our guest could get on with the real purpose of their stay, namely relaxing in the peaceful environment that is Oakridge St Mellion.
perfect cornwall break
Enjoyable half term break with family. Even in feb, the st mellion courses were in great nick. Wife and daughter thought the leisure club was awesome too.
Inside this is a very nice holiday cottae. Clean, warm with lovely views. Especially enjoyed lighting a fire and enjoying a glass of wine at night.
Thank you very much for your kind comments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We would be delighted to welcome you back anytime
