Having previously visited this hotel, we had no hesitation in making this our base for a short break in St Ives. The staff are very attentive and helpful. The extensive breakfast menu was excellent. We will certainly try to book this hotel when we are next visiting the area

Yet another enjoyable stay in this lovely hotel. The breakfast menu or the, help yourself to what you want from, the buffet has something for everyone ( apart from any pudding heads who just want a raw carrot. I highly recommend the full Cornish breakfast. The Lighthouse Bistro was once again on top form and we ate there 3 evenings... More

I had to go to St Ives on business and wanted a hotel out of town, as the town centre is a nightmare to drive through, so not too much choice. I asked not to have a room at the back, as I was alone that often happens, I got a small room at the back! but it was clean... More
