This was my first visit to St Ives, and first stay at Blue Hayes. A friend who comes from St Ives, had given me a list of hotels to choose from, as I said I wanted something that was not too pricey. However there were hotels on her list that were in the same range,and thankfully they were full or... More

Stayed 4 nights in the master suite and had very relaxing stay. Our room was of a very high standard and extremely clean, with a lovely big balcony and a great view. The rest of the hotel is immaculate and has a quiet relaxing feel. Breakfast was the best we have ever had on our travels, high quality and well... More

This was our first visit to Blue Hayes and St.Ives and it certainly won't be our last... My Fiancée and I stayed for a weekend in the Trelyon Suite and it was amazing from start to finish. It helped that we had beautiful weather so we were able to enjoy a bottle of wine or two on our huge private... More

Blue Hayes is perfectly situated and Malcolm and his team ensured that our stay was another memorable one. Our room was spotless (as is the whole building), quiet and comfortable with wonderful views. Excellent choice of breakfast. Everything was absolutely faultless and we can't wait to find another opportunity to return!

Having enjoyed our initial visit so much, we've returned many times over recent years and I'm glad to say it . continues to be a truly superb establishment.

The Blue Hayes sits high above and overlooking St. Ives. Each of the four days we were there, the weather was perfect so we enjoyed breakfast from the elegant porch/patio overlooking their very green backyard, all of which looks out over the water in the foreground with the city in the background. The breakfast...unbelievably extensive...was as good as the view.... More

Having reviewed Blue Hayes several times, its difficult to find something different to say that doesn't sound like a cliche, so I will keep it simple.... Fabulous stay with excellent weather. Thank you Malcolm and the team for another great holiday. See you next year we hope!
