We were given a voucher by our kids and extended the stay by a couple of nights. The staff were all friendly, pleasant, knowledgeable and our room had a nice sea view. We had dinner and breakfast each night and the quality and quantity were very good. I loved the cuteness of them giving you a small bottle of milk for your tea but a small fridge in the room would be better in the summer. I would have given 5 stars but for the worn carpet on the stairs. The service more than made up up for it though. Would stay again and recommend.

Second visit to this lovely hotel and it was just as lovely as the first. The staff are absolutely amazing and nothing is ever too much trouble. We stayed in room 1 and it was stunning with a standalone bath, high ceiling with wooden beams would recommend. The food was just as good and we throughly enjoyed our one night stay.

Well appointed hotel, offering excellent food and professional and very pleasant staff from reception onwards. Near enough to St Ives to leave car at hotel, walk, bus or taxi the short distance. Restaurant presented quality food with care to presentation and we felt above average standards for this type of hotel. Rooms were spacious and well furnished. An enjoyable short stay.

We booked using a Virgin Experience voucher and the service was impeccable from the first phone call. The staff are charming, rooms beautiful and the bed extremely comfortable. Because it was out of season we had free use of the stunning C-Bay spa. We didn't get to eat in the restaurant, but my veggie Gannett breakfast was very tasty.
