The previous reviewer highlighted the good aspects of the hotel re the location and friendly staff. However the restaurant was disorganised and fell short of what you would expect , particularly when you consider the cost of staying at the Garrick. Is anyone in charge? The room we occupied also needs refurbishing. The hotel is going through a transformation, and... More

This was our very first trip to Cornwall and luckily I had the foresight to book a restaurant for the first night, although we were not staying at the Garrick Hotel we both fancied somewhere nice to eat especially after a long drive down from Warwickshire. I was warned that St Ives is not the easiest place to navigate by... More

I stayed at the Garrack for 3 nights with my Mum in early September. I confess I was slightly apprehensive, given some of the comments that have appeared on Tripadvisor recently. In the event, I needn't have worried. After a very friendly reception, we were shown to a modern, spacious twin room with fabulous views over the sea. Flat-screen TV,... More

First the good. The hotel has a magnificent position, on top of the cliffs looking down on St. Ives. We had a big room, which looked newly decorated and had this same fabulous view. The food was delicious. There was freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast which is the mark of a good hotel for me. We were on the... More

Having had issues with our booked accommodation, we found ourselves late at the night at the Garrick. Whilst it perhaps speaks volumes that the Garrack was the only hotel in St Ives with any availability in the middle of August, it is also notable that the new owner is thinking on his feet to fill those rooms, offering us a...

We have been staying at this hotel for 40 years, so we were disappointed on arrival to find out that it had just changed hands and it became evident that things were not the same. In fact we had been alerted to changes just two days before when we received an email to say that our booked dinners would not... More

We stayed for two nights as part of our week in Devon & Cornwall. The rooms and hotel are looking a touch tired, we are aware that the property has only just been taken over, so I can appreciate that the hotel is now work in progress. We wanted a luxurious stay, but left dissapointed. It did not have the... More

This is our third stay and although we were not told of the recent change of ownership on booking, it became clear that things were a little different here. The room was the same, very charming and clean with an amazing sea view over Porthmeor Beach. The handy small swimming pool was still very good, if a little busier now... More

We booked this hotel last minute from a campsite. Having spent the previous 5 nights in the wilds, we were after a bit of luxury and pampering. At £300 for two nights b & b, we were expecting just that. The room was small and tired but the view was truly lovely and the service at breakfast was good -... More

We had 2 nights .the room was lovely. It was very spacious and we had a view over the ocean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. As an older couple we had to take the car down to St Ives as it is quite a steep walk back uphill to the hotel. We really enjoyed our stay... More
