We loved this hotel so much we came back a second time. This very elegant hotel is in a wonderful location with a gorgeous deck overlooking the ocean. It is much better than staying in busy St Ives as it is just a ten minute train ride into St Ives from Carbis Bay. The train is just a five minute walk down the hill from the hotel. There is also a wonderful beach and beach restaurant down the hill in Carbis Bay.

The hotel staff are very helpful suggesting trips around Cornwall and booking us restaurant reservations very promptly. The food both at breakfast and dinner at the hotel
is superb with views out over the ocean. The hotel is beautifully decorated in clean blue and white designs. The rooms have lovely linens on the bed. It is one of the most elegant and beautifully situated hotels we have stayed in England.

Room Tip: While rooms facing the ocean have wonderful views, our room at the back also had a lovely partial view of the ocean.

We stayed here for 1 night on a our 1st tour of SW England. This hotel was above and beyond any expectations we had. Spectacular setting, beautiful rooms and wonderful staff. Thank you to Sam Wendy and Chris for making our visit memorable and to Chris again for his wonderful advice on places to visit. We will definitely stay with again when we return to St Ives.

There isn't much more to say about this hotel that hasn't been said countless times already - it is just superb in every way. We stayed five nights this time and had the room above the entrance, no sea view but it didn't matter. The bathroom was huge with an excellent shower, and the bed was enormous and so comfortable.
The staff at this hotel are lovely and nothing is ever any trouble, they really want you to have a great stay. There is no pretension or insincere service here.
The only things that would improve this hotel for me personally would be Seedlip behind the bar and a 'no mobile phones in public areas' policy (to be clear, it is a very peaceful hotel but a couple of guests were a bit inconsiderate) but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing.
As others have said, George's driving tour is fabulous, the highlight was seeing seals in the surf at Cape Cornwall. We also saw a couple of seals up close the following day in St Ives harbour. We shall return, hopefully for years to come.

Small hotel in a good location. The hotel had an open airy feeling. It was located within easy walking distance of the RR station. Great Views of the Bay from rooms, but particularly from outdoor sitting/bar deck. Very good personal service. The dinner menu was limited, but well done and changed nightly.
