We booked this hotel for a three night break with our friends, and they could accommodate our dog. I booked direct With Steve on reception, he couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. We stayed in a classic room no'20' which is where you can stay with a dog. I was a little concerned what it would be like, compared... More

Sat outside on the terrace in 3 inches of water. Sun was blazing. Overlooking a disgustingly dirty swimming pool. We Ordered cream tea and two coffees. Cream tea arrived 5 mins before coffees and it was terrible. A timble full of solidified clotted cream with minimal jam. Scones were so dry and no plates!!! On the plus side the coffee... More

Can only comment on the food. We visited on Saturday lunchtime. Quite quiet, fabulous views across to St Ives. Very friendly staff and service was remarkably quick. Food was good and my wife thoroughly enjoyed her winter warmer cocktail. You pay a little bit more maybe but it's worth it for the view. We will certainly visit again, it must... More

Just been to St Ives for a two week break and spent many happy hours in this establishment. Had two evening meals and one Sunday dinner plus many pints of Tribute. All the meals were excellent, special mention to David (bar), Jamie(bar) and the lady who served our meals. Both pleasant and friendly, a credit to your business.

We booked a table for bonfire night. The service was fabulous and our waiter was charming, polite and courteous at all times. However.... The food was not at all as expected. My crab bisque was pretty much the equivalent of an oxo cube dissolved in water or miso soup with three noodles floating in it as opposed to the luxurious... More

General very nice outlook, food and location. Reception was so rude it was almost too much trouble to book us a table for dinner, waitress answer to questions on the menu was I don't know, not I can find out. Food arrived after an hour, and had obviously been forgotten, desert order incorrect. But worth the wait!

The room was set into rocks just above the sea. The view of St Ives was like a perfect painting. Clean and bright room. Great breakfast overlooking the other beach, saw two seals playing by the rocks and fishermen hauling in a beach net as we ate. Excellent value, we would love to stay there again.

We stayed for two nights, 27th & 28th of November on a special deal, with dinner included on the first night. Our room was very nice, with a great view of the beach from the room and balcony. The staff were very helpful, breakfast was good, the evening meal on our first night ok. There are very good restaurants in... More

We have now been to St ives twice and both times we have frequented this place. Lovely beer and amazing views. A very relaxed atmosphere too. Food - OK but nothing special. The five stars are for the bar service, which is spectacular.
