We stayed at the Gipsy Hill Hotel for one night Sunday on route to St Ives; we booked the hotel during our stay at the hotel in March and asked for the 4 poster room again, it was a little extra but worth it. The room overlooked the beautiful gardens at the rear of the hotel, and had 2 chairs and a settee as well as the 4 poster bed which was extremely comfortable. We received a courtesy telephone call from the hotel to confirm our reservation a week before leaving.
Access to the hotel is via a business park from one of two M5 motorway junctions, the hotel is situated down a country lane which is fairly easy to find and is set in its own grounds within beautiful secluded gardens, you have no view or any indication of the Business Park or M5 Motorway. The decor in some parts of the hotel although clean is a little dated, but the Hotel rates are comparable to the Travel Lodge situated in the Business Park. There are plenty of parking spaces at the hotel.
The dining room overlooks the gardens and is a pleasant room to eat in , Dinner Menu was fine the night we stayed with a good choice and was reasonably priced, I am not am not sure how often the menu changes, service from our waitress was excellent. There is also a relaxing lounge and bar area where drinks were not expensive.
Breakfast was served in the dining room from a buffet table comprising, fruit juice cereal toast etc, with a varied selection from the hot buffet, on each occasion we have stayed everything was fresh and appetising, with waitress service for tea and toast. When we stayed in March the hotel was quieter and breakfast was cooked to order and served at your table.
This hotel is ideally situated for an overnight stay when travelling to Cornwall, you can leave refreshed at 10am in the morning and be in St Ives for lunch.
Will definitely stay at his hotel again
