My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at the garrack with our dog. I particularly liked the fact that our dog was able to dine with us for breakfast. The staff were very friendly and attentive and were especially friendly towards our dog, big brownie points for this! Breakfast was better than the average B and B. Crispy bacon... More

We stayed at the Garrick for 3 days at the start of the month. We wanted a hotel where we could take our dog and we weren't disappointed. We had room 17 which was large and had a great view of St Ives. The hotel allowed us to take our dog into meals with us and set a room aside... More

Well worth the walk from st Ives harbour where we were staying. The food was gorgeous. Fresh and tasty and served by a very charming French waiter, it would have been perfection if the st Ives fog hadn't descended spoiling the sea views from the conservatory! We will definitely be back next year. So much better than some of the... More

This was a much needed break away after very poor health earlier this year and it was my boyfriends birthday, so we wanted it to be special. One of the things that appealed to us most about this hotel was it stated 'pet friendly' so I could take my little chihuaha with me who is a pleasant well trained timid... More

Thank you for reviewing The Garrack. I am sorry you were offended by being asked to put your dog on a lead whilst in the hotel. Despite your claims of cleanliness and being a responsible dog owner, we had received a complaint earlier that day that you had not cleaned up after it in the car park. We do welcome... More

Stayed 2 nights in Room 7. Couldn't fault the lovely, big , clean and comfortable room with separate hallway and bathroom. (Great, powerful shower over jacuzzi style bath also definitely worth a mention.) Beautiful views as promised: out to sea looking in one direction and over Porthmeor Beach and St Ives in the other. We didn't sample the evening menu,... More

Stayed 2 nights in room 4, a very comfortable 4 poster bed, very large room with fantastic views, the 'suite' had separate hallway, toilet and bathroom with roll top bath, but had no shower, the hotel was very accommodating and also allowed the use of room 6 which had a modern on-suite with powerful shower if we wished. The huge... More

We booked my wife and myself for a few days rest, not an holiday as such as I planned to do some work, mainly on the net, away from the office phone ringing constantly. The rates at £90 per night inclusive of the (excellent) breakfast was tempting. Unfortunately, contrary to what the web states, the wifi and the internet was... More

Thank you for your review of The Garrack. I am sorry the Wi Fi was not reliable enough for your requirements. We have indeed now completed installation of a new system giving much greater coverage of all rooms and public areas in the hotel. This work was needed for the Hotel's own technology to function better, but the opportunity was... More

Just had a wonderful stay at this lovely hotel. The room (no 20) had an amazing view, you could watch the waves rolling from far out of sea onto Porthmeor Beach. We live locally and were staying for a weekend away with friends. The hotel is being gradually updated by the new owners and we could not be more happy... More
