We arrived before 2 but were given the choice to leave our baggage while we wondered around St Ives. Polite staff showed us to our room and made us feel welcome. Room 6 isn't the biggest of rooms but was very bright and well decorated. Small en-suite but modern fixtures and a nice powerful shower. Very impressed with the cleanliness on the room and bathroom. Slight problem with the drainage in the shower. Had to turn the shower off halfway through to avoid it overflowing. We did inform the staff of this though so hopefully it will be rectified. Very comfy bed, nice feather pillows and duvet. Our sleep was disturbed by inconsiderate drinkers wandering home, until 3am, but we did expect some noise due to the location. I would suggest staying in the back of the hotel if you wanted an early night and undisturbed sleep.
Breakfast was served in the bar. Choice of cereal, fruit salad and juice to help yourself to. I would highly recommend trying the home made muesli! Cooked breakfast looks a little small, but the quality and taste of the ingredients makes up for it.
We decided to have our evening meal there. Service was good, very friendly and attentive bar staff. I was disappointed by the lack of veggy options, but that seems to be a common theme by the coast! My partner however enjoyed the lamb dish. The ingredients were again good quality and freshly cooked.
