We took advantage of the 'Autumn weekend break' offered by the hotel and upgraded to a room with a (wonderful) sea view.
It was a perfect short break and St Ives (a short & easy walk downhill) was quiet and welcoming. The beautiful beach is an easy walk down steps or down hill (and then level into St Ives through a maze of tiny and interesting streets).
We also took the bus (bus stop outside the hotel) into Penzance and enjoyed both the travel (great views of St Michael's Mount) and shops and sights of Penzance.
The hotel staff were friendly, very helpful and efficient and the bedroom beautifully appointed and clean (the windows sparkled, thus showing the wonderful view to great effect). The breakfasts were beautifully cooked with generous portions and a great choice on offer (again, wonderful views from the dining room....) and the evening meal excellent (no view as it was dark!).
The swimming pool is a great asset and was enjoyed on two occasions though, was closed on Saturday evening due to chlorine content problems.
Parking is unusual (but efficient) - the friendly Porter takes care of your luggage and parks your car in the hotel car park,across the street, by means of a car lift!
Great stay, lovely hotel, helpful staff, excellent food and wonderful sea views - Thank You for the perfect weekend break!More
