My husband and I stayed at Blue Hayes for 3 nights during our honeymoon trip to Cornwall - my husband booked it (as a surprise) based on reviews on Trip Advisor.
On arriving, Malcolm and Sue were waiting by the door, expecting us. They greeted us warmly, and showed us around the hotel and onto the terrace, with stunning sea views, where we had a drink before being shown to our room. We stayed in the Trelyon Suite, which had a huge private terrace, with partial sea views, sunloungers, chairs and table. It was fantastic to be able to sit here late afternoon, enjoying a drink in the sun before dandering into St Ives for a meal.
There was also champagne on ice and a personalised card from the staff - a fantastic surprise, making our stay all the more special.
The room itself was extremely comfortable, with a large bed, hairdryer, torch (for late night walks along the coastal path!) and the bathroom was also large, with molton brown toiletries.
I was also struck by how clean our room and the rest of the hotel was - especially with the white carpets and sofas. We were very impressed.
We hope to return in the future for a longer stay, as St Ives is wonderful and we didn't want to leave!
