Visited end of November with Shearings for a five day stay. In the much maligned Room 4 which was convenient and basically comfortable but cold and chilly throughout our stay. The Staff, food and bar were very good, the entertainment, tolerable but it was the overwhelming chilly effect upset a lot of people as well as us. Those who complained...

I went with Shearings to this hotel, expecting the worst from the reviews. Frankly it was excellent. I had a sea view room, very modern and very clean. The food was excellent. I could find no fault whatsoever with this lovely four day break. The staff were polite and most helpful. It was good to re-visit St Ives once more.
