I visited here for two nights in September just me and my beloved four legged friend. We originally wanted to stay at the St Ives Harbour Hotel but due to a mix up with the booking on their behalf we found The Garrack. From the initial correspondence to every aspect of our stay they were totally professional and incredibly welcoming.... More

This summer I walked the entire South West Coast Path to raise money for FORCE and Over and Above, two South West charities that support cancer patients and their families. The Garrack very kindly agreed to be one of my Accommodation Partners and Gold Sponsors. The Garrack is an impressive building situated high above the town, with nice gardens and... More

We stayed for 3 nights as a group of 7 friends last week and had a great stay. The hotel is in a great location, with the most amazing views over the coast line. We ate at both the main hotel restaurant and the pool bar. The food, atmosphere and views at the pool for lunch were perfect. The breakfast... More

Stayed in The Suite with my Mother and Grandmother for a beautiful and sunny 3 nights in August. Each window has fabulous views of which we took full advantage of. The freestanding bath was so comfortable and was directly facing the incredible sea view which was heaven. The main bedroom was nicely decorated and bed was very comfy. The small... More

So me and my new husband came to stay for our 'mini-moon' and we had booked the suite. We were stunned at how beautiful the hotel was and the surrounding views. It's in a brilliant spot- 10 minute walk down to the beach and town and then £5 taxi back up the hill! The staff were very friendly, we got... More

It is rare to find a decent hotel that can accommodate dogs. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to eat breakfast in the separate area with him which we very much appreciated. Breakfast very nice. We didn't eat dinner so can't comment on that. Room was a good size and big bed. The view from the room is... More

We stayed at the Garrack last weekend, 2 adults and 2 kids, and had a great time. The room we were given had beautiful views and was very spacious, staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was one of the best we've had in a hotel. We'll definitely be returning and would highly recommend!

My partner and I stayed here for a couple of nights while away from the kids. The views from our bedroom window of Porth Meor beach were stunning and a joy to wake up to each morning.
