I stayed here for 2 nights with a small group. To be fair I was looking for a reasonably priced place to stay which is close too, but not on top of St Ives Sea Front and this ticked the box. On arriving don't park in the private car park 100yds up the hill use the council ones further up and left. The hotel is a short walk to the sea front via all the nice shops that St Ives has. It is connected to the pub underneath that has friendly locals and music events most nights. Well placed shop over the road for morning papers etc, the staff are very helpful and friendly and the breakfast is great. The room I had was a triple and all beds were comfy, the room was clean and had tea and coffee. The toilet was cleaned daily and the shower was great ! The area/road is quite noisy 24hrs a day at busy times of the year, so if you have a choice go for one of the back rooms. I wouldn't look for anywhere else to stay in St Ives, I think it is fair to say that the decor is a bit tired but they in the process of refurbishing and when they finish i would imagine the price will go up 25% so you are kind of getting what you pay for and I would stay here again.
