Very nice hotel in the heart of St Ives

Lovely staff - receptionist was very helpful and the staff in the restaurant were lovely on all occasions, very friendly and up for a little chat. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean. Bed sheets were extremely soft, I couldn’t get enough! The only down side was that there was no room service menu in the room and it was quite cold in the morning. Great little touches in the room also, selection of nice bathroom products and cookies and water were replenished daily. Location was nice, and even though there is no parking there is a very large car park a few minutes walk away that was decently priced.

Our overnight stop was lovely, food and service very good. Our room was clean and comfortable, although the bathroom was a bit small.

Great weekend break
The room was very clean and the shower was amazing. Mattress was very comfortable and location good. We thought we might have trouble finding a parking space but there were lots within a very short walk away. The staff were very friendly although I do think that hair should be tied up whilst serving food - I really don't want dark curly hair with my breakfast. Breakfast was ok but the beans and mushrooms were cold and I didn't get my bacon on the second morning - having said that the poached eggs were cooked to perfection. All in all a really nice stay in a lovely hotel
