The Atlantic changed hands last year and the new owners are well on the way to making it an excellent hotel in its price range. The welcome is warm and personal, the service standards high. Good views from the bar, restaurant and pleasant terrace. Food options are flexible. We ate one meal intentionally in the restaurant, choosing across the menu... More

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your recent one night stay with us. The window in your room opens two ways. By rotating the handle the window can open from the top and by rotating it further it will open sideways. Maintenance did check the window to determine it was not broken. Our housekeepers usually...

Being my first time in Cornwall, I didn't realise how manic St. Ives was, so to stay in Carbis Bay was a fortunate choice. We booked a room with a sea view and it really delivered. It is an older style traditional accommodation, with a bar and restaurant below. Being a coeliac, I was worried about the food options, but... More

The good points to this hotel was it was clean and quality of food good. The not so good points were we had enough milk and coffee for one cup of coffee in the room and when I asked for more the owner stated "have you not got enough in the room" The breakfast was 1 of everything even the... More
