My partner and I stayed for three nights in the Studio Apartment which we found to be very comfortable and clean. It was decorated in a seaside theme and all furnishings appeared new and in good repair. The room was clean tidy and warm. The bathroom facilities were small but more than adequate. The shower was easy to use and always warm.
Mariana was a pleasant host and helpful.
Breakfast is continental. There is always more than enough to go around but it may not be to everyone's liking and a traditional breakfast would have been preferred.
Location is OK. St Ives is hilly and LordRyans is positionned on a hill meaning that return trips can be tiring. I would say that this is the only factor that let down the property. If you are elderly then you must consider its location carefully.
Overall a lovely introduction to St Ives and I would definitely recommend this establishment to friends.
