We had a fabulous stay at Carbis. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and we loved the artwork. The best thing was the amazing panoramic view from the windows and balcony which exceeded all our high expectations and totally made the holiday for us. We would certainly stay here again. Thanks for a great holiday.
