my grandparent stayed at this hotel from 20th August - 27th. They would like for me to praise the staff on their behalf as they are over 80 years old and received nothing but fantastic service throughout the whole week.

My wife & I stayed here from August 13th to August 20th. Inclusive. This hotel is like many of Shearings. Victorian buildings some parts renovated others in need of TLC. We booked a Superior sea view room ( room 6 ). A spacious twin room with excellent sea views. Comfortable beds. Good en-suite bath/shower kept very clean. Tea,coffee & chocolate... More

We are fans of Shearing holidays and the Bay Hotel Group. You know what you are getting. The St Ives Bay Hotel is typical of the genre. Good quality food over a range that should satisfy everyone. Comfortable rooms. Good housekeeping. Wifi in reception and lounge areas only. Being on the side of a steep hill (where in Cornwall isn't?),... More

After reading some of the recent report on trip advisor about this hotel I was wondering what really to expect. The outside appearance of the hotel is not great - it's 2 mismatched buildings connected together in need of a face lift but the views across the bay are fabulous. We had room 11 to the left of reception and... More

We had a lovely time in St Ives. The Hotel is fine for what you pay but the rooms and corridors are desperate for a cuatro of paint and emulsion. The lift well I would rather walk, it's shocking it jerks, it's noisy I didn't like it plus it only fits 4 people. We had our meals which were great... More
