Great place to stay for a short break. Our room was clean,comfortable, great views from the large window - rooms 19,20,21,22,23 prob all have the same sort of view. Freeview TV, no in-room wifi as signal weak in room but available in public areas. Food in restaurant in the evening was superb, wine reasonably priced too. Breakfast very good, lots... More

We chose this hotel more or less blind from a booking site, and hadn't realized it was a bit of a walk to get into St. Ives proper, but in the end, this turned out to be an advantage. The hotel -- a spectacularly well renovated set of interconnected old buildings on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic -- is a... More

Everything is wonderful at the Garrack hotel, staff are very friendly and helpful and our room is great. Our room is in 'the cottage', overlooking the sea, with perfect views and soft Egyptian cotton sheets. To top it all the food is delicious, breakfast and evening meals are so lovely it is hard to muster the energy for the ten... More

We stayed here over Valentine's weekend and were very pleasantly surprised. A lovely sea view, fantastic staff and cosy lounge rooms and snugs. Breakfast was impressive and we were booked in for the Valentine dinner; one of the best meals I have ever eaten. 2 heart shaped chocolates in our room, a lovely touch. The staff are one of the...

Stayed here for valentines day was an excellent hotel close to the town and 5 mins to the wharf. Staff were exceptionally helpful and welcoming. The rooms were clean, well maintained and well kitted out. We had breakfast included in the price and they were delicious so would recommend this option. Would stay again if re visited the area

We stayed for only one night (31 Jan 2015), choosing the hotel specifically from "Britain's Finest" because it had a spa. The room could not be faulted with amazing view and brilliant bed. Cottage style bar with living room and snug, both with fires, very pleasant indeed. The one fly in the ointment was that the sauna had been turned... More

Thank you for writing a review of your stay at The Garrack. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us but disappointed by your impression that the staff were unresponsive to your requests. The sauna was turned off as the pool was due to close soon but the offer was made that the sauna could be turned on... More

My partner and I stayed at The Garrick for three days towards the end of December 2014. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly-- we arrived a few hours early but they let us check into the room immediately, gave us an impromptu tour around the premises, and provided directions on how to walk into town. Our room had a great... More

We stayed over New Year's Eve for 2 nights and had an enjoyable stay. Our room was modern and clean, although the bathroom could do with renovation. Our friends stayed in the room next door which was larger, but quite old fashioned. We ate in the hotel restaurant on the first night and had a lovely meal for a reasonable... More

I'm a recent convert to the St. Ives 'thing', preferring the south coast of Cornwall. The Garrack changed that perception. Immediately upgraded upon arrival, my room reminded me of 1920s splendour - four-poster bed, massive roll-top bath (no shower, regrettably) and stunning views across St. Ives and Carbis Bay, to Godrevy lighthouse - the inspiration for VIrginia Woolf's 'To the...
