Very picturesque views! The staff I cannot fault for doing so much to help. My aunt being wheelchair bound fresh out of hospital wanted to come to St Ives, although I wouldn't class the Garrack as I would other hotels across the globe, it's everything you'd expect a quintessential small hotel to be, we are on our second day and...

Situated at the top of a hill the Garrack is in a perfect location with only a 10 min stroll down to the beach/shops/restaurants/harbour andTate Modern. The hotels facilities are very good with a lovely restaurant, small indoor pool with a decking bar and pretty gardens. We had room 22 which was spacious, well kitted out and had a fantastic... More

Efforts to upgrade this hotel must have been on a VERY tight budget, as an old, worn, and dated hotel shows through. View from bedroom 23 horrendously spoiled as it looks straight into new decking/bar area, therefore lack of privacy. I was offered an alternative, in which the lumpy mattress protector prohibited me from sleeping, in addition to a constantly... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay at The Garrack. In the first twelve months of ownership we have spent well into six figures on improvements and refurbishment and are likely to do so again in the next twelve months. Much of this, such as renewing old wiring and windows, is essential but would not be noticed by... More

This is the first time myself and my relative along with Darcy the husky had the pleasure of staying at this cosy and welcoming hotel and it definitely will not be the last! Our room was spacious and clean with a lovely sea view complete with an excellent powerful shower. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much... More

Lovely pet friendly hotel. Booked through booking.com and we were given a room in the bungalow in the gardens which was ideal for our dog as we didn't have far to go for her to do her thing. We didn't pay for a sea view but was given a sea view so thank you very much for the upgrade. The... More

We have been visiting the Garrack with our Golden Retriever every year for the last 12 years. It has always been an oasis of calm away from the busy town. The views are amazing. The hotel did need updating and already is much better. The improvements that are being made are very tasteful and pleasing. We stayed in room number... More

We arrived at the hotel after driving from south wales..on being shown our room we could not believe that it was considered suitable. It was so dark and shabby with dirty windows and (nets) as dirty at the windows,which a car and bins where occupying the only view there was..when we said it was not acceptable, we were told by...

Dear Joan, I am disappointed to read your review of The Garrack but do need to correct some of the points you have made. On arrival, you were shown to room 11 which looks out to the rear of the hotel and is priced accordingly. You returned to reception and stated that you had booked a sea-view room and continued...

We had booked two rooms in this charming old and modern hotel on the hill. The spacious double room with it's comfortable bed was facing the sea, the beaches and town of St Ives. The large bath room had a whirl pool. It's nice short walk, ten minutes, to the town centre and the better restaurants are located halfway to... More
