Oh dear! We've stayed in some shocking accom over the years, but this takes the cake. Old, dirty noisy and uncomfortable with a cubicle style shower in one corner of the room where you could shower whilst on the toilet! Faulty Towers springs to mind! No parking except at the station , a long walk up a hill away, one... More

Went here for the Sunday carvery. It was delicious. A choice of 3 meats, or all 3 if you wanted, numerous veg and home cooked roasties and Yorkshire puds. Great choice of home cooked puddings too. Prices were extremely reasonable. The restaurant was full so I would book early. Lots of locals in eating, a bit of a hidden gem... More

I have just returned from St Ives, a stay which included 4 nights at the Western. I did not experience any noise problems and kept my window open at all times. The staff here are without a doubt the most helpful and obliging I have known. Nothing is too much trouble for any of them. During my stay I witnessed... More

It could have been a great stay if we could enjoy some sleep. Good central location but unfortunately it was very noisy place to stay in. Adequate breakfast, clean rooms and friendly staff but because of the noise and parking arrangements (15-20 mins walk) we would probably not stay again. Still had a nice enough stay though.

Lovely hotel in heart of St Ives. Wonderful staff, especially Vicky, who was so helpful during a minor crisis! Excellent breakfast, supplied whatever people asked for. Perhaps decor needs a little refreshing but not a major issue. We heard no noise from the music sessions in our family room. No car park but shuttle bus to the top car park.... More

Just returned from a break to St Ives. Looking at some reviews we may have been lucky with our room but we suffered no noise issues at all. There is no parking but a mini bus leaves from right outside every ten minutes (in October) to the main car park which is £6.40 for 24 hours. The hotel couldn't be... More

Clean but don't stay here if you want to sleep (late noisy bar) or start early (no breakfast before 8) or not sweat (late bar means you have to close the windows to try to reduce the noise leading to high temperatures).

Spent two night mid week here, the breakfast was fantastic, you have it just how you like it, plenty of different foods to pick from. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was at the back of the Hotel so was quiet, but there is live music on every night so it depends which room you have, the hotel... More

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...
