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

This hotel is situated within walking distance to the town. The seasonal bus will get you back up the hill! The food here is outstanding by any standard. imaginative evening dinners which are beautifully presented. The breakfast menu and buffet are also a high standard. The grounds may need a little attention, but this is compensated for by the lovely... More

Found through the recommendations of other Trip advisor contributors. A very big thank you to those who had written a review. What an outstanding place. If you are looking for modern and a real happening thing, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for serenity, excellent staff and service, clean rooms, sea and shore panoramic...

I stayed at the Garrack for two nights while I was on business in St Ives. I had a lovely spacious room on the ground floor, No 11. The facilities for a small hotel were impressive, including a bar, beautiful restaurant and swimming pool. It is located at the top of a very steep hill along a lane. Walking down... More

Just returned from a much looked forward to break, however the accommodation fell far short of expectations. The hotel enjoys a stunning location but the interior is tired and dated. Our room was generous in size with sea view but lacked any style and the bed was extremely soft, tatty and uncomfortable. Our bedding was not change during our 3... More

The Garrack in St.Ives must serve one of the best Sunday lunches available. Our lunch today was superb! Beautifully presented and the flavours were wonderful. It was also tremendous value. The view from the Garrack is stunning, looking over St.Ives and across the bay to Godrivy.
