We had great hopes for the restaurant. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. From the supposed broccoli soup, that was not much more than unseasoned pea soup, to the snobby attitude of the bartender and waiter this was a mediocre experience. True, it has a great view, but there are better restaurants in St. Ives. Don't waist your time here.

There had been no attempt to contact us, and as the... More

Great views, good quality food and decent prices. Mind the postcode if you are driving at least my satnav ended up driving us to the wrong place. Best place to be is the terrace on top of the building. Easy to recommend.

We stayed for four nights in March, we had a thoroughly enjoyable time, the staff are friendly and go the extra mile, the breakfasts were delicious and we were so lucky with the weather, which made the views even better! Only down side was our room which was spotless and very comfortable was lacking in floor space

Our room was fantastic with a balcony that was actually over the sea. Superb view of the beach from the room although the room was small. Parking is limited and up a steep climb to the station car park. Sitting in the bar in the evening was relaxing and the breakfast was excellent in another room with a view over... More
