  • The location is great and the position of the hotel is wonderful overlooking Porthminster Beach. Pleasant staff, always ready to help and excellent room and even better customer service. The amazing panorma from the restaurant cannot be beaten anywhere in st.

    The bed was old and uncomfortable.

  • The view was wonderful and staff were great & a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Services were excellent, beds were really comfortable and complimentary drink on arrival was nice.

    The website for the St Ives harbour hotel is very misleading.

  • Great view + service and very friendly atmosphere. The staff were excellent, room was wonderful and the wedding food was also superb.

    The hotel really did us proud, the jacuzzi water level was too low and the jets were ineffectual.

  • View fabulous town is really pleasant and good value break just before Christmas. Staff are great, polite, funny and friendly, bedrooms are very luxurious, the food in the restaurant is lovely.

    Since the hotel was only half full the original allocation was a bit surprising and moved room standard room was small.

  • The location was excellent and our room overlooked the sea and was very comfortable. The staff were unfailingly friendly throughout our stay and the service was great before we even arrived. Our bedroom was very new and clean, breakfasts were good, the facilities were lovely.

    Food quality not spectacular and bed too small. Possibly the best of a limited choice in St Ives.

  • We loved the views and convenient for the Town. Good value comfortable hotel, the venue was all just perfect and staff were charming and helpful without exception. The dining room was exceptional and food was excellent. The evening menu for dinner was varied and one was spoilt for choice, spa & Pool were fantastic.

    Road noise made worse and the shower was pretty much useless. The service in the bar was poor and the vegetarian sausages were disappointing at breakfast.

  • The location is beautiful and the breakfast room overlooks the beach and there is a great choice. Food at hotel is good, very friendly staff willing to accommodate requests and a very nice bathroom off a hallway. Iron out a few small issues and all freshly cooked to order, the coffee needed to be ". The spa is gorgeous and a lovely facility.

    Overpriced, poor value for money and a building site after we had made a confirmed booked. The beds were awful.

  • I loved the position / and train station was perfect. Meals were of good quality, the car park was free and the room over the road was quite dark and only had one bedside light. Staff were really friendly and the bed was fantastic and we had such a peaceful and comfortable sleep every night.

    The owners spend all day everyday moving cars in and out of a tiny area, in my opinion the hotel should not be operating under current conditions. And heating could not be turned on, some of the prices of the bar could be better and food very poor even breakfast.
