This hotel is usually used by coach parties.We booked direct staying over the weekend in July. There was only one other couple staying in the hotel,they had also booked directly with hotel.The hotel did not have any coach bookings until the Monday.We used the hotel as a base, travelling around area all day.We was able to negotiate to have our evening meal at 6.45pm instead of the fixed time of 6pm when booked with the coach party. The hotel is dated and doesn't have any lifts. and it does need a lot of work done ,but bedding and towels in the rooms were spotless. Also the food was excellent,and plenty of it, with tea and coffee provided after the evening meal.We had a lovely welcome from Blanche and Mike,and there is a homely atmosphere.I think when booking this hotel you have to consider the price you are paying is very reasonable compared to other hotels in St Ives.It is a good 15 minute walk into St Ives but there is a bus stop near the hotel that will take you in to the town.Also the coastal walk into St Ives can be reached opposite Hotel.
