We stayed in room 19 which a previously commented on by another reviewer because it overlooked the smokers zone outside. We were well aware (from reading previous reviews) that we would hear bar noise up to 12.30am so I don't think it is fair to moan about that. Positives: 1) town centre location 2) decent breakfast 3) large, modern and... More

We were in room 19, a lovely surprise of it was modern and spacious. Staff were great, helped me to the room with all the bags. We had food in the bar which was good. Bath was amazing and huge! Breakfast at £5 was well worth it. No wifi in the room - only in the bar. And not much... More

A two night stay at the weekend, in an ideal location for the town and beyond. The Friday night crowd were in the bar when we arrived and it was very lively. Good job our room was well away from the noise . Nice clean room, if a bit cosy. Good shower and comfy bed. Breakfasts were excellent, if the... More

Perfect for working away. A reasonably busy bar and pleasant staff. No TV in the bar area was a bit annoying as I like to watch TV when away alone . Food looked good but I prefer to explore local restaurants . If your not eating not too many places to sit and just chill.

Stayed for one night, a Thursday. A member of the hotel staff was helpful on our arrival, showing us to the room. The room itself was cosy and warm, with a view over the market place in St Ives. The bed was comfortable, and the room quiet at night. The bathroom was clean and with modern fittings, with a large... More

My second stay here - not a lot to add to my earlier review For what you pay - this is a fine, basic hotel. The only negative I could find was that my room and the breakfast room were both quite cold It's nice to have breakfast cooked to order (not a buffet) Staff very friendly - and I... More

I stayed at this hotel with my two teenage sons. On booking direct ( I got better price ) I was told there would be noise disturbance until 12. This apparently is told to all weekend guests. I didn't mind and booked. Both rooms were large and clean with amazing power shower. The town itself is beautiful with lovely riverside... More

A no fuss town centre hotel that provides the weary traveller with a bed and food. Friendly and helpful staff. Good menu and being town centre evening parking outside front door. Work mate's room didn't have a bath which after a long day on our feet would have been nice. Mine did. Bed was hard. Only downside was my room... More
