Bigger hotel than I first thought, rooms dated but clean. Staff very friendly. Breakfast lovely. Drinks in bar are extortionate, considering there poured out of a bottle, £4 something for 2 cokes!! Views are lovely convenient for beaches and walking into town.

As we called on a drop-in stay, we were treated extremely well by the reception staff and offered a spacious room with partial sea-view, which was lovely. En-suite coffee facilities etc good, shower small but adequate. The lift was extremely helpful to access our room. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. However, the toaster leaves something to be desired.... More

I was part of a hiking group on a 10 day trip. This was our final night. The hotel is bright and airy and is situated on hill overlooking a beach. The single room that I was in, was cell like in space although well kept. So nothing special. Breakfast was self service and good.The hotel has a lift.

This lovely hotel is clean, tidy and has friendly, helpful staff. Our bed was extremely comfortable. It is only a short walk from the main town and we will definitely be returning! The breakfast was lovely but we unfortunately didn't get a chance to sample their bistro supper.

My friends and I were most impressed with the quality of the lunch and the helpfulness of the staff. It was a joy to be served by the smiling and courteous staff. They are a credit to the hotel. We are six old codgers who have travelled a lot in our lives and we were most impressed with the service... More

Had a deluxe room overlooking part of beautiful porthminster beach. Lovely room and views, friendly reception staff. It's a short walk down to porthminster beach and five to ten minutes to town. Really enjoyed our stay - it's a really pleasant hotel. St Ives is stunning. We will be back.

Eating at the Chy-an-albany, out of the six of us no one could fault any part of any meal and the service was first class with very efficient and friendly staff. unfortunately We cannot comment on the rooms as we did not stay,however, walking through the hotel the parts we saw were very clean. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel welcome was pleasant, the room was average nice and clean, but the en-suite was on the very small side. Good variety of dishes for breakfast. Staff was very helpful in suggesting good places to eat and drink. Cannot comment on evening meals as we received an e-mail prior to our arrival that a private function was booked into the... More
