Fabulous, clean and friendly place. Loved staying here, only wish we had booked here on previous visits to this lovely little town. The view we had was breath taking, will be coming back next August! Could not recommend enough.

Booked very last minute, not many places had rooms available. Reasonably priced especially compared to slot of the B&B's in St Ives. If you want somewhere very central, with a car park and fabulous views where you don't plan to spend much time in your room then this place is a good choice. Couldn't have asked for a better location... More

We stayed 2 nights and loved the Hotel, although the car parking was a little tight!! The room had amazing views over the harbour but the windows facing the Bus Station meant that when the buses were manoeuvring it could get quite noisy. Being on the 2nd floor the water pressure was almost non existent so even getting wet in... More

St Ives is old, the new church as the locals call the Parish Church of St Eia of Porthia was concecrated in 1437 yes St Ives is old just like the Regent if you want real modern there are plenty of boutique establishments they don't all have our views or parking facilities. They are somewhat more expensive than us. Enjoy... More

Absolutely loved our stay in this hotel. We were lucky to have booked on the day and were pleasantly surprised with its tidy and clean rooms. All accessible amenities were within walking distance with spectacle views of the beach from our room (room 7). The breakfast was amazing, it is made on order which means it's piping hot on service.... More

When you visit a place like St.Ives you need to be prepared for the narrow streets and small building and thus the small rooms in this hotel. But they were neat and tidy and our had a prefect view of the harbour. Excellent nights sleep in our room, although family member in rooms facing the road complained of noise from... More

Just got back from 3 nights in room 3. The room is well appointed, very very clean and has the most beautiful views of St Ives. Keith and Sandy are perfect hosts. Even letting us in at 2am after i was stupid enough to forget the room key. Thank you both!

Fantastic,no,stunning views so just make sure you ASK for a sea view room. (Note picture from our room) Friendly staff ,Keith (owner) is very helpful and will even provide you with local parking permit. (Those of you who have visited St.Ives will appreciate this! ) Situated bang on the edge of the inner town you are close to all areas... More

Located onto a busy road it was noisey and we couldn't sleep. The service felt unhelpful and surly on first impressions and didn't improve. Our room wasn't particularly clean and all put together it was not a pleasant stay and I wouldn't recommend. Wouldn't book again.

View was phenomenal! Keith was very accommodating when I booked the wrong month. Likely he had a room available and it happened to be the suite that overlooks the bay. I have to say it was the best sleep I ever had. The mattress are AMAZING! Very comfortable. It was hard to get out of bed. The breakfast that Sandi... More
