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

My wife and I only booked the Cottage Hotel as the Travelodge was fully booked, but were quite pleased that we did. One night’s Bed & Breakfast cost was a similar price to just the room-only at Travelodge and as such, we found it to be extremely good value. The room we were allocated was number 78 - a very...

There is not a lot one can say about an Alfa coach holiday to this hotel. For less than £300 each, for 7 days (6 nights) including a supplement for a sea-view, transport to and from one's home town, full luggage handling, and two day trips included......brilliant ! But this review is about the hotel and if you want clean... More

We visited this hotel with a coach holiday and found it very clean and welcoming. The staff cheerful and obliging. The food was very good and requests for extra eggs or a pot of hot water etc. were dealt with, with a smile. It is very near the railway station but train noise is not a problem but take a... More

Although I did not have a sea view I know how beautiful it is from a previous visit, the reception staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a lift to upper floors. The hotel in general is in very good condition including the rooms and bathrooms, food quality is also good with a reasonable choice for selection, staff... More
