If you are looking for accommodation in the heart of St.Ives, then you cannot do better. However, do not expect anything other than the basics. I assume that an inventory of the room's contents contained in the guest information folder was meant to deter would be thieves but to list some of the furniture as "antique" and to include the folder itself in the list was mildly amusing. There was a very weak WiFi signal in the room which in practice rendered it useless. TV reception was also poor. At the price, I would expect a comfortable chair to sit on and a writing desk/table but neither was on offer. Despite the comments contained in some of the reviews, I found the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good although choice was limited. Bar menu was imaginative with food locally sourced. Comments concerning noise from the bar in the evening, particularly in rooms on the front of the hotel are justified but, in reality, it is to be expected in a hotel of this type and is not a major issue.
