This was our 4th visit to Blue Hayes and is definitely not our last as we have said to keep booking us in until we tell them to stop !!!
I have reviewed Blue Hayes every time we have stayed there and I always think that no more can be said,and it can't really,but I still feel the need to compliment Malcolm and his wonderful team for yet another wonderful stay.
After our drive to Blue Hayes,Malcolm offered us breakfast on arrival, which was a really generous gesture and very much appreciated,( we even managed to dine on the terrace thanks to the lovely weather ! ) but that is the thoughtful kind of thing that Malcolm does.
I have previously commented on the beautiful and immaculate decor,and the wonderful ambience created there,every fitting and fixture is of the highest quality, and the calming colours of cream and blue,are just gorgeous, the whole furnishing throughout shows that you are staying in a very high quality hotel where the exacting standards of Malcolm are attained.
As soon as we drove into the car park of the hotel, Sue, a wonderful person who is not just a receptionist,came out to greet us like friends ( which we now feel we are ) and along with Malcolm,made us so very welcome.
As we were shown up to our suite, champagne on ice and a personalised anniversary card was there for us, a wonderful touch,and a very thoughtful gesture,which Malcolm and Sue have repeatedly done for us since we spent our Ruby Anniversary with them the first year we stayed at Blue Hayes.
I have also previously mentioned both Steph and Jade,two really special young ladies who as well as doing reception work, serve us in the dining room, and who every day greet you with a smile and a cheery word,and are faultless in what they do,they also make you feel like friends returning to stay. I must also mention Jason who we met for the first time this year,who is yet again a really nice member of Malcolm's team.
Not forgetting Louise who does a superb job,and obviously the other hard working people we haven't always met,and those who cook breakfasts "to die for ".
I know I may be repeating my previous reviews, but I can't say enough about Malcolm and Blue Hayes,it really is a very special place to stay,and if you get the good weather,and are lucky enough to dine on the terrace ( we did a couple of times )you almost feel like you are in the Mediterranean, with the design of the hotel and the fantastic views of St Ives bay.
I don't think I can add anything more,other than you really need to book early to get a reservation as the availability page on the website confirms.
The genuine warmth shown by Malcolm and all his team is second to none, and nothing is too much trouble for them,
I certainly recommend a visit to Blue Hayes,you will not be disappointed.
We loved every minute of our stay.
