The Queen's Hotel is a late-Georgian, three-story building in the heart of picturesque St Ives. 5 mins from the harbour and beaches, we have ten en-suite bedrooms, which have been redecorated with vintage furniture and Cornish artwork hanging on the freshly painted white walls, plus sparkling new bathrooms with new showers. Downstairs is a relaxed and friendly bar with delicious pub food that was awarded an AA rosette in 2011. Everything is prepared on the premises - the menu is chalked up on the board daily using the finest local, seasonal ingredients Cornwall has to offer. Bread baked daily. Homemade ice-cream. Local beers. Warming fire. Children are very welcome: upstairs a camp bed and a travel cot are available to borrow, all windows have black-out blinds; downstairs there are boardgames + toys in the light and airy bar, baby-changing, and children's portions available. The harbour front and Fore Street are under five minutes walk away. Selected by Alastair Sawdays.

Where do people park?
stivescarpark website. - we booked a space, arrived to find a secure car park where our car had it's own bay. A 2 min drive to town, the taxi dropped us off and collected us when we were going home. Really easy when you have cases etc! We did not need our car in st Ives, the roads too small/busy and no where to park anyway, this was hassle free, car protected in secure compound with CCTV. Hope this helps. Linda

"If you are less than fully mobile, suggest a room on a lower floor as there is no lift and the stairs are quite steep."
"Ask for room at rear."
"Check which room in the photos you are getting before booking."
"Sea view at front of hotel"
"Ask for a room s the top and overlooking the back to avoid hearing street noise at night."
