I have just returned from a holiday with HF at this hotel. I cannot praise the staff enough absolutely nothing was too much trouble . They were attentive and had a sense of humour which added to the fun of the holiday. The standard of food was excellent with good choice at all meals, delicious, hot and flavoursome. The shower...

I stayed at this location as part of an HF Holidays walking/hiking tour but you can book a room on your own also. Our plan included all meals which were fabulous!! Several choices for every meal including fresh fish every day and vegan choices. My only complaint is that our room was on the top floor and the water pressure... More

We stayed at Chy Morvah for three nights and used it as a base to explore south-west Cornwall. The first thing to explain is that Chy Morvah is operated by HF Holidays and is therefore organised primarily for their walking groups, the participants of which are mainly retired ladies & gentlemen. It is therefore not really operating as a hotel... More

I booked a 'country house break' at Chy Morvah. Its location was great: 10 minutes' climb from the town centre. Food and service were excellent. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The vast majority of guests were on organised walking holidays and must have been exhausted: they retreated to their rooms around 10pm. Each evening included organised activities - these... More

A stunning location overlooking St Ives beaches. Our room was enormous with panoramic views of the beaches. It was newly decorated, quite luxurious in fact, with ample storage space. The bathroom was a good size with a powerful shower. The service from the staff was excellent. I asked for more coat hangers (as I always take too many clothes) and... More

We stayed here for a week in August - we were four adults and two children. The food and the service are second to none, and the staff cannot do enough to help you. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the beach and shops, although be prepared for a steep climb home. We had three rooms between the... More

The hotel is for those wanting to enjoy the great outdoors walking in the area. The staff were excellent, so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. They went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. The facilities were excellent, I enjoyed the heated swimming pool on several days but then I was really... More

A pleasant enough hotel, in quite a good location, but, and it is a big but, it is not really for B&B or casual travelers. It is also at the top of a very steep hill, which is fine going into St. Ives, but not so good coming back! Chy Morvah is a hotel that is for dedicated walking holiday... More

If this review was just about the staff then they would all get 5 star +. Absolutely fantastic from the moment you arrive. I had particular dietary requirements and Gabriella and the chef dealt with this without any fuss and I had fantastic food throughout my stay. The hotel is ideal for a walking holiday and has great facilities including... More
