We like the Western Hotel. The staff and Management are very welcoming and helpful. The room (6) is a good size, the bed is comfy and the shower works well. This place has a comfortable feel to it. Breakfast is good plenty of tea, toast, cereals, full English great except for the sausages which are very poor quality. The breakfast room is nicely decorated and very clean. The breakfast service is very fast and efficient. The Hotel situation is great, easy walking distance to all amenities, travelers to St Ives must be aware that there is little parking, but there is a pay car park just up the hill, we're always ok as we have family here. So the downside: we know about the possibility of noise, that's not a problem for us but the new but too thin curtains didn't keep out the bright sunshine, so we were wide awake at about 5.30 due to delivery noise then can't get back to sleep, a problem for me as we didn't get in till 1.30am. The windows need better secondary glazing and they only open a little so the room was hot and stuffy on this VERY hot weekend. The noise from buses constantly turning in the square can get irritating, but the bus service is good. Silly things: the kettle on a table nowhere near a socket, mirror on wall wrong way up so you can only see a slice of yourself, and no socket near it so you can see when drying hair. This little gem needs some money spent on it and a bit of interior design advice.
