We returned this February for our fourth stay at the Chy-An-Albany, this year on a four nights for three B&B deal. We were allocated, on request, room-39, up on the third floor. The view is uninspiring but it is well equipped with storage space and unheated shower room.
The view from the restaurant at breakfast via the window wall was wonderful. So was the standard of the food and its service, both at breakfast and at dinner.
I expect that we will return.

Stayed for 3 nights in Deluxe room - we were lucky enough to get the balcony, the room was large and spacious. Beds were ok but a little creaky. Stunning views over St Ives Bay from the room but even if you wanted a cheaper stay in a non-sea view room you could still enjoy the amazing views from the sun lounge/bar. Staff were very friendly and helpful and check in/out was quick. Breakfast was excellent with a range of cooked to order options as well as fruit/cereal etc. Evening meal wasn't quite as good, tasty enough but not a 'wow' meal - evening meal at the Tregenna Castle (kinda next door up the hill) was much better.

The hotel decor may look a little tired around the edges but it offers excellent value for money for a short break in St Ives with these sorts of views. Also it's only about a 5 min walk to the train station (with a few flights of steps) and 10 mins into St Ives, so makes it ideal if you don't have a car and are travelling by train.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay despite the stormy weather and I would stay here again the future.

As a last minute decision to visit st ives for the weekend we stayed at the chyan Albany and must say it was wonderfull the staff where very friendly and the room was immaculate with French doors leading to a wonderfull roof terrace with views over looking porthminster,
Breakfast for me was fresh grilled kippers (heaven). My wife and son went with the tradional full English which also went down well . Overall a great place to stay will be visiting again .

Ps the bass ale at the hotel bar is also a must try,

Room Tip: Our room was a family room to front of hotel

Stay 2 nights for weekend break through Laterooms. Lovely location, easy walk down into town. Fortunately there were parking spaces at the entrance otherwise getting to the back car park sounded a bit of a trek. Outside looks tired and front uninviting. Reception staff were friendly.
We eventually reach our rabbit hutch through a warren of corridors at the back of the building.
The room was clean but its only big enough for a single bed no free floor space or places to put bags. I'm sure the ensuite was originally a wardrobe (although not a females!) I can only say, the average person would have trouble turning around, standing space was tiny and claustrophobic!. Decor very 80's and furniture falling apart. I wouldn't want to stay in this room again. Thought the Bistro food was expensive for what it was so crossed over the road to Spa hotel where it was only slightly cheaper but better ambience. Breakfast fantastic and staff very polite.
