We stayed here for 2 nights, booked it blind so had no pre -conceptions so our stay could not be influenced by previous reviews. My review is solely based on our own personal experience at this hotel / location and our own expectations will differ from many others. Car park at front and back of hotel, Front parking limited, you... More

Excellent position with its own car park and only 10 minute walk to the centre of St Ives. Staff very friendly throughout our stay. Excellent breakfast & evening meal. We had a Top floor room with fantastic views over St Ives bay. We would definitely stay there again and recommend this Hotel.

This is a nice, small hotel with 10 min walking distance to town centre. Our room was at the top floor and had a wonderful view. The room was so good but the bathroom was small. Breakfast was good and the hotel staff was very kind and smiling. We will come back again.

A central location with just a 5 minute walk into busy St Ives. A small front car park means you run the risk of having to do a rabbit run to find the rear car park. Good reception and nice room. Walls quite thin so neighbours chatting late was a problem. Nice choice of foods for breakfast and friendly service

Sarah S, Manager at Chy-An-Albany, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback Our front car park is smaller than the rear one and only has nine spaces with an area for a couple of motorcycles. It can become full when the hotel is busy. The other car park does offer a lot more spaces and can be easier to access. I’m sorry if you had difficulties finding... More

This hotel is perfectly situated on the hillside over looking the bay! We stayed for 2 nights, the staff were super friendly from the reception & bar staff to the waiters & cleaners. The breakfast was everything you would want on a lazy Sunday morning with continental, full fry-up and even cooked to order. The hotel was just a short... More

Had such a lovely stay at the hotel. Great views over St Ives bay and out to sea. Really nice spacious and clean room. Hotel well presented. We planned to try out different restaurants in St Ives, but after sampling the hotel restaurant, we found nothing was as good, so ate at the hotel every evening, which is highly unusual... More

Stayed 2 nights. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food good. Room comfortable and clean but small. Also bathroom was very small. However we enjoyed our stay as reasonably close to main waterfront area - note a 10 minute walk is needed and coming back is uphill. May be an issue for elderly. However we enjoyed it - walked off the... More

Very nice hotel,with lovely staff, in a good location. Train station and beach a short distance away and a 10/15 minute walk to the town itself. The hotel itself was lovely and clean, with super views. The room we had was ideal for a 1 or 2 night stay,but would probably want something slightly bigger if i was staying longer,... More

We liked this place, it was clean and friendly, good bathrooms and from our room we had terrace with stunning views over the bay. Breakfast was perfectly pleasant, with free cook to order options on the menu. Staff at reception were more than happy to help with local information etc and let us store our luggage on the day we...
