We wanted to book a two night break in St Ives at a hotel with a pool (it has two), easy parking (plenty of) and within walking distance to town (ok if you are reasonably fit and can cope with uphill all the way back!). Online booking site showed one twin room left. Rather than rely on this, I telephoned... More

We have been coming to the Tregenna since 1978 and although some of the rooms are a bit "tired", the hotel is comfortable, friendly and clean. Good value two day break.

By booking last minute the rate was good and included a full breakfast, which was good. Very spacious room, extremely helpful front desk staff, awesome views from outside - we didn't have a room with a view. Spa could be open a bit later, although we didn't stay in peak season, so not sure if the hours vary. It would... More

This hotel is beautiful from the outside....then you step inside and the fairytale is OVER!!!! This hotel is NOT worth the money I would rather have stayed in a travel lodge. The staff where lovely but the hotel is old and shabby, very very noisy floor boards...kept us awake throughout the night! The parking was a nightmare! The toilet phone... More

First impressions of the castle is quite elegant and grand. However get past reception and it is a different impression. The lift smelt of old and being damp. There were clumps of grass on the stairs that were there all weekend so, the carpet had not been cleaned. The corridors were in need of repair and maintainence, on floor one... More

recently came back form a 7 night stay and had to cut short as both my wife and I fell ill after eating in the restaurant. Food was nice, but ironically after half an hour of us both eating we both got quite ill. After having spoken to 5 people (no one would call us back) and even though we... More

We have just returned from a three night stay here and had a really great time. The hotel is not a super flash, ultra modern affair but when travelling with two small boys that's not what we were looking for. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. We stayed in a family room, which offered a large double bed and... More

This hotel has wow factor as soon as you drive into the grounds and alight in front of the castle-like building, grounds are lovely, immaculate and views over St.Ives, difficult to beat this. Reception area was spacious, service efficient. Room was pleasant with everything required, unfortunately we didn't pay the excess for a sea-view room, maybe next time. Restaurant was... More

This hotel is in a stunning location, and is a beautiful building. It has pretty reasonable facilities and looks idyllic as a wedding venue etc. Unfortunately, that's where the good parts end. I never write reviews on hotels, but I was so disappointed with this, I felt compelled! The rooms are terrible - really terrible. The floorboards are so creaky... More

I was treated to a weekend at Tregenna Castle for my birthday, and this was to be our second visit. I loved the place first time round, albeit our room was quite small and so hot!
