When i viewed the website I thought the location was great (which it was) and the rooms looked alright, nothing special but alright. Then I arrived and was greatly disappointed....the room was terribly dated and in need of modernisation.... Its depressing, dingy and off putting- felt more like an elderly carehome than a hotel room. it was so small that... More

We three shared a room for 3 nights in July. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of St Ives. The look is a little dated but the room we stayed in had recently been refurbished and was exceptionally clean, with plenty of storage space. the shower was not the best as it leaked slightly and the pressure dropped...

I do agree with other reviewers that it is a little dated, but on the other hand who wants every hotel to look a carbon copy of the modern theme we now see everywhere - the Western has character just like the town it is in. Very clean, extremely helpful and welcoming staff and fabulous effort made to provide a... More

It's a nice hotel, but it's not worth the £285 for 3 nights. Very clean and tidy but a bit dated. The one thing that made it for me was the breakfast, it was the best breakfast I have had while staying in the uk. The location is fantastic, very central and opposite a supermarket, which is handy. Saying that,... More

Well it was the last available hotel room in st ives... And justifiably so. Room swelteringly hot with a view of assorted seagull nests and roofs. Our open window hoovered up the overpowering smell from the next door curry house...... And all this for 140 pounds per night.... Although to her credit the receptionist did fess up to this and...

Stayed for 2 nights. Never saw anyone on reception but the staff we did see were very helpful. The room was clean but small. Beds very comfy. Tea/Coffee provided. Only real niggle was could do with a hook on the back of the bathroom door. Had to shut the window at night because of the noise outside from the drunks... More

Very intimate jazz club with tables and chairs and room for about 50 people. Cheap entrance charge. Saw Gilad Atzmon in May with the Craig Milverton trio. He played a 2 hour set. Stunning. Cost was gbp 12.

Staff were really helpful and lovely, breakfast good value (full English plus other choices available) Mattress was not too good - unusually soft at the edges -so much so that my partner fell out of bed - not something she usually does. Other than that the rooms were really clean and good value for money. Good location for the town.... More
