We have just returned home from a lovely weekend in St Ives we have stayed at the Sloop the past three years and we love it. We had breakfast in the Captains Table and had a meal on Friday evening and it was fantastic the food is freshly cooked and delicious we feel that the chef deserves an award. The staff are really friendly in particular Louise who serves breakfast a true professional! Thanks for making our weekend special.

Stayed at The Sloop Inn twice now (once in December 2009 and again December 2011). We use it as a kind of pre-Christmas get-away and meet other family members there.

We booked four rooms and stayed for three nights and we can't fault the place. The staff are consistently friendly and efficient and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The bar food is always of a high quality and the restaurant food was wonderful.

Others have said that the prices are extreme, but I disagree: £2.50 for a double Jack Daniels? I wouldn't call that expensive by any means.

The rooms are clean and bright with lovely crisp white bedlinen. Our bathroom was a little tired, but clean nonetheless and the whole room was snug and warm.

We will return again next this December - it's when we love St Ives the most: few other tourists, bracing walks, the Tate mostly to ourselves, great food, mulled wine and a spot of Christmas shopping in uncrowded streets. Bliss!

We find it a wonderful way to begin the festive season!

PS: if you book a room at The Sloop for Friday and Saturday - the Sunday night is free!

This great little inn is located right on the harbour in the old part of town. The staff are incredibly friendly, as everyone in St Ives seem to be.
The room was of a good standard with a very comfy bed, digital widescreen tv and ensuite.
Breakfast was great, again accompanied by St Ives friendliness.
I would recommend the sloop to anyone lookin for a lovely inn On the harbour in st Ives.

Spent New Year's Eve 2011/12 at the Sloop with family (in 3 separate rooms) and enjoyed our stay. My parents have stayed here several times before, although this was my first stay in the Admiral's Cabin which is a large en-suite room with sea-views overlooking the harbour. We enjoyed an English breakfast in our room each morning. The staff were very helpful and gave us a warm welcome. One thing to be aware of if you stay in one of the rooms at the front of the Inn, is that as it's a working pub, it does get very busy and there can be some noise in the evening. I'd recommend staying here and would stay here again if in St Ives. I'd also recommend the Beach restaurant which is a few doors along from the Sloop, where we ate on New Year's Eve - the food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive.

Room Tip: Choose one of the en-suite rooms at the front of the Sloop. Not only do you enjoy the view, but you...

Yesterday having spent a cosy 4 hours in the bar with my wife and 4 friends, dogs sleeping on our coats on a bench, our pleasant afternoon was called short by a shout from behind the bar to put our dogs on the floor. Happy to take our money but as soon as a group of locals came in who had reserved the table for later, we were made most unwelcome. The dogs were seen by all the other staff and nothing was said just the obnoxious oaf with grey hair and a beard with no people skills who wanted us out. Don't worry Sloop we won't be back
