Great hotel set up above st Ives with fab views of sea beach and town. Easy reach of town but away from the madding crowds. Excellent breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff. Ate dinner which was good. Did not get round to using the pool as easy access to SW coast path both ways. Will return with children next... More

We have just returned from our second visit to The Garrack Hotel as a family of 4. We stayed in the small bungalow on the hill beside the hotel and had an excellent stay. The food and service was really very good and overall we would rate this as a super family friendly hotel for value for money. The poolside... More

We were visiting the IOS and we're getting an earlyish ferry so decided to stay at The Garack on the Friday and our return a week later on the Sat & Sun nights. On the Fri we were really pleased with our room allocation (room 17) and on checking out we asked if we could have that room on our... More

This hotel is a little hidden gem, lovely friendly staff, fantastic food and with even better views. We booked a standard double with sea view and we were not disappointed. The room was large with separate bathroom and toilet & very warm - even though the heating was off, but opening the window ensured and comfortable ambient temperature through the... More

Halfway through a weeks stay. A most friendly and warm greeting and shown to our room. A superb view of the town from a large window. The breakfasts are excellent with hot food made to order and a good choice. The young staff work exceptionally hard in order to be helpful. The leisure club is a real bonus, again with... More

We booked this hotel at short notice due to my father becoming very ill and never having seen St Ives he wanted to visit whilst he can. The hotel staff did everything they could to ensure he had the most amazing time and when he saw his room (with a sea view) he became quite emotional and wanted to sit... More

As a last minute day trip to Cornwall we booked a 'Partial sea view room' at The Garrack. Considering the price when compared with other hotels in Cornwall we were absolutely thrilled. The room was bright with a stunning view and nice bathroom. Totally silent nights sleep and we were allowed to bring our dog. The leisure facilities were great... More

We returned for what has become an annual week at the Garrack last week. There have been some good changes - redecoration of rooms and restaurant, and we did like the iron and ironing board in the room. The restaurant service is as good as ever, menu a bit shorter but no compromise on quality. Rhubarb upside down pudding was... More

Stay at this nice hotel if You can imagine walking down to the city/village and back - rather demanding but beautiful with the nice weather we had. There is a bus to. Ask for the rooms with a view and two separate beds, they have the best view. Amazingly nice and qualitative breakfast for a 3 star hotel. You can... More
