We have just spent the most fantastic week in St Ives staying at this hotel. The hotel was warm and welcoming, they made us feel so welcome like part of a family. The room was beautiful and clean with the whitest bed linen and towels one could wish for. I have spent nights in five star hotels and this by... More

We arrived in St Ives late and without accomodation during the high season. The Howards had accomodation in the attic. Despite renovations with lots of paint smell, the Howards was okay, The hotel was rather far from the centre of St Ives and did not have an evening meal available. The bar was very friendly and the server let me... More

When we arrived at the hotel it appeared a little run down, with evidence of refurbishment taking place. We were greeted by the friendly Manager/Owner who advised that our room wasn't quite ready, as it was having new carpets down and the new bed hadn't been put up. This didn't worry us, as we went next door to The Atlantic... More

Bluntly, this hotel is a dump. It is decrepit and poorly maintained. Light bulbs were burned out and needed request to change them. Bathroom fan would turn off several minutes after switched off. There literally was a hole in the plaster wall. Television was ancient tube model with 2 remotes for satellite receiver and TV. We left as soon as... More

Stayed here as we were attending a wedding at the nearby very nice treganna. When we arrived there was nobody in the reception area despite ringing the bell. I had to go and find the barmaid who it would appear was standing in for the weekend. I can only describe our room as a seventies throw back. Curtains hanging from... More

It is difficult to describe without seeing it for yourself. We used the hotel for a function, so I cannot comment on the rooms which are supposed to be nice with good views however. But downstairs looks like it is in the middle of a refurbishment, except I don't see any skip outside. Nothing matches anything. Mock Tudor in one... More
