we stayed at the cottage for three nights last weekend and found it good value for a self drive break. We were greeted by Sue on reception with a great welcome and plenty of local advice. She even greeted us by name every time we saw her. All the staff were friendly and efficient in their work. The only problem... More

We stayed here for one night after a wedding at the Carbis Bay Hotel. Instead of £105pp at the Carbis we paid £68 for two which included breakfast. Not the most modern of surroundings - it is dated but very clean and the staff were really nice, very helpful. Breakfast was good and we had a great view of the... More

Spent four nights at this Hotel on a coach holiday. The hotel was situated on a hill and was not easy for walking in the area for those less mobile. The rooms were clean and well equipped although I would have preferred a quilt on the bed as opposed to old fashioned blanket and sheet. The food was good with... More

We went here on a 4day coach holiday with Alfa Travel. Don't know how it can be 2*. Worth at least a 4*. Very basic rooms, but spotless, and spacious. Food was good and plentiful. All staff very pleasant, and couldn't do enough for us. Our only moan was that we didn't get a sea view, but if you are... More

The hotel was very basic and was designed for coach parties visiting the area. The rooms were basic but did have great views over the bay. Breakfast was served as if it was school canteen. Cheap and cheerful

My Husband and I went to St.Ives a couple of weeks ago with David Urquhart Coaches on one of their Christmas Tours. And stayed in the Cottage Hotel overlooking the bay. We enjoyed not having to drive ourselves. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. A few coffee breaks and a bite to eat on the way. Lovely. Our hotel... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the unexpected, beautiful sea view from our top floor room (recommended). Although dated, the room with its en-suite shower room, was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was not included in our package, but the extra £4 pp was worth every penny and can be recommended. We also had dinner and the food was great. The... More
