Stayed here for 4 nights with a friend. We came to St Ives for sun and beach and wanted to stay in a central location as the town is quite hilly. The hotel may need a bit of paint and new carpets here and there, but it is clean and everything fully functional. And the people working there... wonderful and... More

The staff were very helpful. Sadly the hotel needs updating. The owners should at least clean the carpets. The nearest car park is £12.50 for 24 hours. We were in the back of the hotel but, above an Indian restaurant. The front is noisy so I would suggest do not go to the hotel if it is a rest you... More

Great location for this traditional hotel, however the general decor was sad and outdated. We booked a small double, and small it was. The next night we stayed in a well known chain in another location for half the price and double the space. As well as needing a bit of a face lift the windows were dirty, nets at... More

Arrived at the hotel to be informed that the car park was a 5 minute walk away. Eventually found the car park and had to pay £15 to park (which i feel is fair for 3 days). Unfortunately the car park is longer than 5 minutes away and up a very steep hill. Wouldn't recommend elderly to attempt to walk... More

As artists, we are frequent visitors to St Ives...this Hotel is our favourite. Why do we stay here? It is a small, friendly hotel situated centrally in St Ives. The rooms are clean and en-suite and they do a wonderful (vegetarian) breakfast! Can't recommend it too highly.

Had a great few days in St Ives. This is a traditional hotel, if you are after pointless extras and chain atmosphere then move on. The breakfast (8-10) we had a lovely full english just set us up nicely for the days ahead. The staff helped with iron and a few other little requests. Perfect location for short visits.

Stayed here for 1 night this weekend. The hotel was clean & conveniently located in the middle of the town. The room was ready for us to check in at 11, which was great. The room was light & airy, the bathroom was clean & tidy too. The bed was super comfy & the pillows were amazing. The shower isn't... More

Breakfast was lovely and all of the staff we met were friendly and very nice. BUT....... 2 nights with very little sleep, the pub next door had live music... More

The Hotel is Centrally located with easy access to all amenities. Serves great English breakfast (also has a Veg option). Staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms and the bathrooms are very clean and well maintained. The Pub below the hotel was amazing - had great beers and also live music in the nights every day. A few downsides... More
