The service was friendly and helpful if slightly thin on the ground. One person serving behind the bar and one person serving breakfast.Therefore, be patient.
The rooms are newly decorated ( you can still smell the paint) to a good standard but very simple. There was no WiFi in the room and the TV signal was weak.There was also no hot water until I asked for it and the shower needed more power.
The menu is standard gastro pub food and the breakfast was standard but lovely.Freshly baked bread is a nice touch.
The hotel is right in the heart of St Ives so there is no hotel parking. The railway station car park is the best bet at £6.50 for 24hours.
Generally, the hotel is a comfortable bolt hole which has just been refurbished in an attempt to bring in new punters after many bad reviews. I felt we paid for the refurbishment at £90 a night when £70 would have been more fitting to the standard of the hotel. Nice bar and food but basic and overpriced.

Local beers. Warming fire. Children are very welcome: upstairs a camp bed and a travel cot are available to borrow, all windows have black-out blinds; downstairs there are boardgames + toys in the light and airy bar, baby-changing, and children's portions available.
