We went on a long weekend to St Ives and stayed in the self catering apartments (plen an dinas) overlooking the golf course.
The accommodation was lovely, clean and spacious. The mezzanine layout with the windows in the roof added to the charm. The kitchen was well equipped and the room warm (we went when it was -3 out and the room felt warm very quickly). A downside was the tv was old, although some of the apartments had flat screens. The stereo was also old and did not have an ipod dock. The sofa transformed into a bed which was uncomfortable and squeaky. Two powerful showers in both the upstairs and downstairs bathrooms. The room is very quiet.
The grounds are beautiful and the walk down to the beach wonderful, passing through waterfalls, palm trees etc.. a word of warning though it is steep !!!
We didn't use the spa whilst we were there because we did not like the look of it, the gym is in a dingy corridor, and you have to go up cold, grey concrete steps to get to the small pool. The steam room and sauna both looked old and uninviting. There is also a charge to hire towels !
Overall it's a great place to stay, we did not use the hotel so can not comment on the actual hotel, but what we did see when checking in looked nice. We would definitely stay here again.
