Fabulous beach location with stunning views. Restaurant food was very good with emphasis on local ingredients, including drink options. Staff very helpful. As it was Easter the hotel was very busy and it seems to be popular for wedding functions, so be aware if wanting a quiet break. Other things to be aware of, there is no lift so if...

We had high hopes for this hotel, the welcome from Leslie on reception was lovely. The apartment (Holly Cottage) was charming - no complaints there. We went for afternoon tea in the conservatory, it took a good half hour to receive any service, another half hour to receive a cup of tea and another half hour to receive the food...

Absolute gem of a place, perfect location. Given free upgrade on arrival. Staff all so helpful, just beautiful, simply stunning and can not wait to return. Coastal walk to St Ives no issue but once you arrive you won't want to leave!

We have just returned from a great weekend away to this hotel. The setting right in the beach at Carbis Bay is perfect and so pretty. We stayed in apartment number two with a secret escapes offer. The apartment was lovely with two bedrooms, a bathroom, lounge / kitchen and an outside patio area. It had everything you could want...

Carbis Bay hotel is a delightful place to stay. We have been going for many years and are always made to feel most welcome. It is a family run hotel and it shows. Yes, a lot of changes are taking place but I cannot believe some of the negative comments others are making. It continues to be staffed by a...

Had a fantastic stay at the hotel. The bay was clean and tidy with a fabulous sunrise if you're up early enough. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend Sands restaurant for any meal. St Ives is a short costal walk away taking roughly twenty minutes, take a torch if you're walking back at night though.

I spent the day here a couple of days ago using the facilities and having a treatment in the spa. I had had my eye on the Signature Treatment - Serenity By The Sea for a while and decided to treat myself. It was an absolutely stunning day with wall to wall blue skies and sunshine. I arrived to incredibly...

A very pleasant short break at the Carbis Bay Hotel, staying in a 2 bed apartment, beautifully furnished and well equipped, pretty gardens with an architectural backdrop of a Victorian railway viaduct and only the occasional train. Just a minute's walk or so from the main hotel and then another minute down to the beach. The C Bay Spa beside...

DON'T go if they have a wedding booked. If you must , book a room at the back. Weddings take over at the expense of other guests. Guests are everywhere, very noisy until the early hours.. A lovely setting. Rooms good. Pleasant walk into St. Ives. Train handy . Although our room was at the back the train didn't intrude...
