We stayed here for one night because we needed somewhere near Penzance and St Ives.
We had a "small" double room and it certainly was small and we would not have wanted to have stayed in this room for more than one night.
In general the hotel seems to have gone for a quaint old-fashioned feel with a mixed bag of furniture selected more for its rustic charm than its user's comfort. On the plus side however the food was very good and the staff were pleasant and helpful.
The location is spectacular with the hotel located alongside the coast road a few miles west of St Ives. A drive along this road in view of the Atlantic Ocean is one of the joys of Cornwall. Whether the bright mustard yellow colour, with which the walls of the hotel are painted, enhances this prospect is a matter of opinion!
We might stay again but would definitely want to go for a bigger room.
