Fantastically clean .

very nice location

We had a lovely time using Penryn Summer Apartments as our base to travel all over Cornwall sampling different beaches and places each day. As student apartments, you can hear a lot of movement noise and talking from the floors above but thankfully on many of the nights there was no-one above us. Beds could have been more comfortable. Would definitely recommend these apartments to people on a tight budget.

Great Place to explore South & West Cornwall....
Mr Mashood A

breakfast was not included in this booking but the overall impression was excellent. We were surprised that the rooms were all en-suite and towels were provided this was not clear on the website. We will certainly recommend the facility and will be visiting again in the future.

Excellent value for money based on 2 familys sharing a 7 bed flat. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. Cheaper than camping and much more luxurious!!
Mr Jason C
