If you are thinking of visiting Cornwall then head for St Ives and if you can find a room available book The Tide House, and you won't be disappointed.
It's rare to find "great seaside hotel" in the same sentence, but The Tide House would be a fanrtastic, personal boutique hotel where ever it was located. It does have a great location less than a minute from the sea which means an early morning walk is an option. That will give you an appetite for an interesting range of breakfast offerings all beautifully cooked and presented.
The hotel itself is an inspiring design with a clever use of colours, fabrics and unusual mirrors. However, you never feel that this is a showhome that should not be enjoyed and relaxing in the deep settees in the lounge, with the today newspapers,music playing softly in the background, even for 20 minutes was therapy for me.
Our room was very comfortable, laid out and furnished to a high standard from the bedroom into a nice bathroom. We also had a view of the sea when sitting up in bed!
Staying at The Tide House seemed more like a long weekend with friends as it was so relaxing, and speaking to David he is always looking at how through little touches, things could be inproved even further.
So good location, lovely interior designed rooms, personal friendly service, delicious breakfasts, makes this a 5 star choice in St Ives.
