Tregenna Castle Resort
Ranked #10 of 21 Hotels in St Ives
Reviewed February 14, 2012

Have just returned from a two day break at Tregenna that was booked via Groupon and cost £99.
When I booked the receptionist was really helpful offering a range of rooms to suit our needs (two adults and a two year old). We ended up with a massive room (room 8) that had a double bed and through an arch 3 single beds which we pushed together and stuck our little monkey in the middle one. Although at the back of the hotel and with no view we werent in there that long for it to be a problem. The bathroom was clean and the power shower was amazing, probably because we were in the basement. Nice white fluffy towels (plenty of) and bedding.
Breakfast was a smooth operation considering how many people were dining at one time - fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal, juices and a full english breakfast buffet bar were all on offer and topped up regularly. Toast and tea and coffee were brought to your table.
We swam in the hotel pool both days and there is also a jacuzzi, again nice clean family friendly facilities.
This was a perfect break for the three of us, however if you are child free I would give it a miss - other peoples children squawking over breakfast isnt exactly romantic. St Ives has a lot to offer though so I would just book one of the boutique hotels that are dotted around the town.
We will be back Tregenna but probably only on a voucher deal - dont know if I would have parted with £270 for this break.

Room Tip: Room 8 if you have young children is good as there is no door just an arch leading to a room with th...

My wife and I stayed in a lovely self-catering cottage for our winter break.The whole experience was exellent from start to finish, we did not want to leave!
All the staff were helpful, friendly, and pleasant.Food was wonderful and good value for money.There was a short pleasant walk through the ground straight in to the beautiful town of ST Ives. Totally recommend a stay.

The room had a beautiful sea view, bright and with the cold weather out side the room was nice and warm.The staff were so pleasant and helpful. The dining areas was kept to a high standard and the menu was very good. I would deafenately recommend Tregenna to my friends and family.

We had a pleasant 2 nights' stay but look for their deals to get the best price. Our bedroom was clean and comfortable but definitely in need of refurbishment for which the hotel has a current ongoing programme. The evening meals were good and well presented though the atmosphere in the restaurant was a bit stuffy, though the waitresses were friendly.. The pool area was unfortunately rather an uninviting area so we abandoned our original intention to swim. It's a steep walk up from the railway station or the town (15 minutes if you are reasonably fit!) but the views of course are stunning. Next time we might book a superior room with a sea view.

Room Tip: Check to see if your room has been refurbished

We have just spent a wonderful relaxing weekend at the the Tregenna Castle Hotel. The staff were very helpful and efficient. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable -make sure you turn the radiator down or off as they put it on full blast for your arrival and it's a bit too hot. We upgraded to a sea-view and the view was even better than expected. We ate at the hotel on the 2 evenings we were there as we did not want to drive and could not fault the food or the service. We were greeted at the door to the restaurant and noticed that everyone was sat by the window even though there were plenty of tables in the center of the room. We had to ask to be moved as it was very draughty. We didn't get chance to use the pool or spa as we made the most of being out and about. The walk down to St Ives was picturesque but a bit of a trek back, but we did make it! Our overall stay was very enjoyable and we would definitely stay here again and will be recommending it to our friends and family.

Room Tip: ask for a sea-view
