It is best to ignore the few bad reviews. The good reviews and photos truly reflect the comfort, friendliness and cleanliness of this hotel. The proprietors, Mike and Blanche Lindsay welcomed the arrival of our coach, and they and some staff waved us off when we left. The rooms were very clean, with all comforts. Nothing was too much trouble... More

My husband and I have just spent a thoroughly enjoyable 5 days at the St Merryn Hotel. Our double room was a decent size, with a walk-in shower and everything was spotlessly clean. The food at the hotel was plentiful & home-cooked. Although there was no choice of evening meal, if you wanted something else, all you had to do... More

We have just returned from a 5 day trip organised by Leisuretime and stayed at the St Merryn's Hotel. The location is good as you can walk the mile to St Ives or catch the bus 200 yards down the road, or order a taxi. The hotel was clean, the food really good, staff wonderful. There was a nice bar...

Having booked the holiday before checking the reviews on here we were a bit apprehensive after reading the last three reviews. On arrival we were greeted on the coach by Mike the owner, who made us feel... More

The evening meals were never cooked from fresh, all Iceland specials! Decor shabby, walls mouldy. Access and parking was difficult for even the fittest of people and there wasn't even a lift for the disabled. St Ives is such a lovely place, shame the same can't be said of the hotel!
