We wanted to book a two night break in St Ives at a hotel with a pool (it has two), easy parking (plenty of) and within walking distance to town (ok if you are reasonably fit and can cope with uphill all the way back!).
Online booking site showed one twin room left. Rather than rely on this, I telephoned to check and was told that the room was still available, but being above the kitchen, we might find it a little noisy. I am extremely impressed by and grateful for this honesty (thank you, Wendy). When I then began to hesitate and said that I would not be happy with that room, I was offered one of the 2 level apartments (Plen an Dinas) on the same terms. The apartment was absolutely brilliant. It looked quite newly built, so everything inside was clean and fresh. OK , so we had to go outside to get to breakfast, but this was only a 2 minute walk.
Breakfast was the usual self-serve affair, with all the usual fare, so we were happy with that. We dined in both the Brasserie and the main restaurant - both were excellent with friendly efficient service. Indoor pool was lovely and warm and clean. Lots of other facilities available - check the website!
A very pleasant couple of days!!More
