My wife and I booked a large double room with sea view and we were allocated room 19. The view from the room is excellent, looking over the hotel's garden and down into St. Ives bay. The room itself was nothing special, it was clean and the bed was comfortable but the easy chairs were showing signs of wear and the bathroom was a bit tired looking.
The restaurant food was terrific both for breakfast and dinner. There is a wide range of choice and the quality was very good. The dining room staff were all excellent, they were attentive but not intrusive and were knowledgable about the items on the menu. The bar, though small, was well stocked,as a malt whisky drinker there was enough selection to make me think and as for Gin I have not seen a larger selection in any other hotel I have been to.
In terms of value for money I would recommend the dinner, B& B package. £180 per night for B&B is a little high, unless you can eat your way through all of the breakfast menu, but the prices for dinner were reasonable, and overall represented fair value.
We went here based on the recommendation of friends and we were not disappointed.
