Fabulous place to eat. Views to die for over the bay. I took my husband here for his birthday while in St Ives and it was great. We booked a table with sea view for the main meal and then moved outside for coffee and brandy and had amazing views. We had starters, steak for my husband and I had... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for a birthday celebration. Very cute little rooms, although they are quite small they are clean and comfy. Breakfast was lovely, plenty of options and it would recommend the poached eggs and salmon on toast. There are lots of little bars and restaurants in walking distance and the hotel holds a spectacular view of portminster... More

Very slow service, we were about to complain when the waitress finally arrived and took food and drink order. However the waitress apologised for this and was very friendly. Another long wait for drinks to arrive and managed one sip before starter arrived. Personally I like a drink before my meal but anyway....Starters of goats cheese pannacotta with salad and... More

We had a fabulous meal here, we ordered across the menu and it was all very tasty. The service was also good. The terrace was lovely and had great view of St Ives. We would not hesitate to come here again. Overall a very good experience.

Amazing views from the room, clean and comfortable, lovely food, friendly staff. Wished we could stay longer. Handy for the beach and town, small pool to cool off in. Wow, can't wait to come back again. Parking wasn't easy so book a reserved space before you arrive with the hotel if you can.

Stayed here for 3 nights in July/August 2014 to celebrate my 40th birthday. The hotel is fantastically located - near the train station, adjacent to Porthminster beach, and a very short walk into the town. We had a balcony room. The rooms are quite small but well designed, very comfortable and decorated well. The balcony was a good size and... More
