The only reason I am writing is because our stay was ok in some respects but very disapointing in others - the room was clean although no phone (which was worrying when we got locked in one morning because the door lock was faulty!) the breakfast (and the people who served it) were great but the overall impression was sad,...

This vindictive review has been posted following direct correspondence with me at the hotel. I have apologised for not living up to the guest's expectations during her recent visit as I know how disappointing that can be. However, because of the guest's particular family situation, I now doubt if there was anything we could have done to give her an... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with a small group. To be fair I was looking for a reasonably priced place to stay which is close too, but not on top of St Ives Sea Front and this ticked the box. On arriving don't park in the private car park 100yds up the hill use the council ones further up... More

This hotel, due to its location and size has such great possibilites but is in much need of renovation. I have a feeling that they have rested on their laurels considering St Ives is such a magnate for tourists. You can get away with the dullest decor and tired furnishings and still be full to capacity. Our room had one... More

We have just recently returned from a three night stay at the Western Hotel. The room was very small and the furniture dated but the main problem was that it looked like it hadn't seen a hoover or a duster in a very long time!! Also there was never anyone on reception, no phone in the room and the key... More

As a result of this review we have changed our procedures for checking room cleanliness and also we now make a point of asking guests if they are happy with the condition of their room. This review did come as a surprise to us as we have never had any previous adverse comments regarding our housekeeping and none were made... More

The Western Hotel is an old hotel in the centre of St Ives. The rooms are basic but cosy, clean and comfortable. Always plenty of hot water for showers when required. An Excellant Full English Breakfast is served in the Western Gril which in the evening becomes a restaurant. There is an open kitchen where one can see the food... More

Had the pleasure of spending a weekend at the Western whilst on a surfing trip with friends. As we were driving up from London on a Friday night, we rang the hotel to let them know that we wouldn’t be arriving until about 12:30am. They were fine with this, and upon arrival, we were greeted with plenty of smiles, and... More
