A warm comfortable hotel with the most friendliest of staff. All staff without exception were friendly,helpful and willing to please. Check in was quick and efficient. We had Room 5 a sea view room with a huge balcony and views to die for! Hotel a bit dated in decor but was spotlessly clean and comfortable. A large bathroom with big white towels. Free WIFi which was quick and always available. Nice white cotton bed linen. The breakfast was excellent, plenty to choose from the buffet with a choice to order cooked to order. The scrambled egg and smoked salmon was a favourite. Plenty of good hot tea and best of all excellent staff who were efficient and always smiling.
The walk back up the hill from town got steeper each trip but to rest was to enjoy the view while catching your breath! A really nice comfortable place to stay in St.Ives. Price of £160.00 a night is steep by sea side standards but St.Ives is such a popular place and this price seemed typical of this standard of hotel.
