We booked this 3 night break under the Shearings self-drive banner at a competitive cost. The hotel is owned by the Shearings group. We were expecting a dated hotel - it was that - but were pleasantly suprised by the lovely bathroom and superb view from the bedroom window. Unfortunately we had to go off (at 3:00p.m.) as the room was not ready. A minus point was being seated for all meals with another couple - without being asked!!!! This could have been very embarassing if we had not liked the other couple and had asked to be moved. With small tables it was a little cramped, and there were unused tables. A limited choice for each course was fine - starters and desserts were a little disappointing in both quantity and quality. Main courses were of a good standard with a nice assortment of vegetables each night. Fruit and cereals at breakfast were followed by a served plated breakfast. The hot meals were perfectly adequate, although served on small plates. A choice of fish was offered. Tea and coffee were generously topped up on request. For a break in St Ives this hotel has a great position. However the clientele when we visited were virtually all retired people - no children in evidence.
