The most beautiful place. Loved the hotel and it's location. Very comfortable and friendly. The service was first class, and the food excellent. I would definitely go back :). I would certainly recommend going there in November - very peaceful and relaxing!

Fantastic room with harbour view . Great location for exploring Cornish sightseeing highlights. We had a great variety of weather conditions . Storm on arrival and summer sunshine in St Ives . We would certainly revisit this hotel again . Pleasantly surprised by the improved roads into Cornwall .

We have just spent 4 days at this hotel on a Shearings coach holiday. We did not pay 5 star prices so did not expect a 5 star hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff were fantastic. A modern and comfortable dining room and lounge overlooks the harbour. The food was first... More

We went down to breakfast at 7.30 each morning, apart from our last... More

Thank you for your review. Majority of hotels do have different room classifications and charge accordingly. These rooms are optional and gives our guests more choice, to suit what their requirements are. The type of room and cost is always a personal preference. I`m sorry to hear you felt cold during your stay. There is no policy on heating controls... More
