The hotel had a particularly good restaurant for dinner, the included breakfast, and afternoon Cornish Cream Tea. The walk to Corbis Bay beach is quite steep but only takes about 10 minutes and the beach is great. The walk to St Ives takes 45-60 minutes and is one of the prettiest coastal walks anywhere. I think most people take the bus to St. Ives (you want to avoid parking there) but be sure to leave time for a walk at least once.

Lovely sea view room but we had an attic room so have a sore head due to forgetting to duck. Excellent restaurant with an attractive menu, Sunday lunch especially good. Had the option of limited use of spar facilities ar sister hotel Carbis Bay but did not take up this option.
