I have visited St Ives a couple of times a year for the last fourteen years, and always make sure I stop off in the Sloop for a couple of drinks. There aren't many places that keep Doom Bar as well as it is kept here. The Sloop is generally buzzing, especially on a warm day when the seated area... More

Great pub by the harbour.Sit out in front and its sheltered from wind with a lot of Sun.Busy so hard to get a seat sometimes.The beer was good and staff friendly.Must mention Tony who works out front who was full of life and created good vibe.This is a must stop at pub when in St Ives.

Rocked up in St Ives with nothing booked, had a couple beers here in the beer garden and noticed an accommodation sign. Got the last available room which was good value for what seemed like a new ensuite apartment, very spacious and clean. Even though the English soccer was on, we weren't disturbed at all. The seagulls were the loudest... More

Room dusty!! Curtains had mould on the bottom of them! Bathroom blind didn't cover window! Very, very, very noisy if you stay as resident. Felt quite intimidated walking past all customers out front to get in! Breakfast very overcooked and not worth it!!!!

We stayed here some years ago, and accommodation has changed considerably since. We had the Captains Cabin........a lovely, airy, spacious room, with modern en-suite facilities, a large comfy bed, and fantastic access to the terrace bar. On our arrival we were a little concerned to find that the parking we'd reserved was not immediately adjacent to the Sloop, (I struggle... More

We had to seek shelter from a heavy downpour and saw the Sloop Inn, I asked if we could take children in and was sent to the rear of the pub, then children were told not to touch fruit machine (don't put it where you send children then)! Children were finishing a sausage roll and were told they couldn't eat... More
