I stayed in the Bosuns room for 5 nights, the last 2 of which were with my dogs. The room is clean and relaxing. My shower was broken when I arrived and it was fixed the next day (I did arrive late in the evening) when I returned. The room opens on to an alley at the side of the... More

Visited in july 2015. Good selection of beers, wines and spirits all at good prices!!! Unfortunately the men's toilets were disgusting! You will have a more pleasant experience in a Glastonbury portaloo!!! Although my partner assures me the ladies were just fine!

A visit to St Ives wouldn't be complete for me without a visit to The Sloop! A great pint of Doom Bar and always busy outside when the sun is shining. The barman needs to work on his welcome & his smile though - I'm know we're only tourists but we bring in a great deal of revenue...!

If ever there was proof of God, St Ives is surely it. And the Sloop inn offers a ring side seat to some of the most beautiful coastline in the whole of the country. The venue itself is almost inaccessible by car, purely down to the sheer number of people that St Ives pulls in, week on week. It's only... More

We went for a couple of drinks as we had just arrived. We had already got ice cream from round the corner and was told rather rudely we had to leave. Even though we had bought drinks. The round cost £37 for 5 drinks. The landlord countinued to slag us off in the bar as we were leaving.

I found out about the Sloop Inn by chance one day when I visited an Art Gallery!. There was a print for sale of The Sloop Inn, St Ives. I thought well it must be good if someone has painted a picture of it. How right I was. From the moment we rang to check availability, we felt the staff... More

We stayed for one night here at the end of June, Parking in St Ives is a total nightmare! so we parked at the leisure centre and bussed it into the centre of St Ives (beware that the pay by phone option doesn't work) before dragging our cases down the street. Great start to the holiday. Anyway we arrived and... More
