    Our weekend at The Garrack Hotel was very relaxing, the hotel is an easy walk into St Ives, we travelled by train and found the location ideal for getting around the area. Our room was comfortable and quiet, the food in the hotel is of a very high standard with locally sourced ingredients and produce used. There is a cosy bar with a lovely view across the bay with a varied selection of drinks (including a extensive range of different Gin's, quite unusual). Our thanks to all the staff who made our weekend very enjoyable.

    Room Tip: The hotel has parking available.

    The hotel is a nice place. It's in need of a bit of a tidy up. The staff let this place down. For the price you expect a certain level of service. There was a large lump of soggy Weetabix stuck to one of the breakfast chair - cleary visible - it was there for the duration of our 3 night stay. Over heard staff on several occasions winging about guests. Very unprofessional. I would be sacked if I worked to the very low standards achieved by certain staff members. Other than this, the hotel was nice, the owner was a lovely chap, shame about his staff!

    A quiet and peaceful hotel with very comfortable rooms, a superb restaurant and friendly intelligent staff and management. This was our fourth visit which will speak volumes.

    Situated on the outskirts of St Ives (no need to drive through the crowded town centre to get there though you need a bit of courage to head down the narrow lane leadng to the hotel) with outstanding sea views. The Leisure Club is a warm place to go on wet days and serves a good range of cakes and cream teas though avoiding the local children's club is probably worthwhile.

    The staff provided us with a small fridge for my husband's insulin and are very responsive to special dietary needs.

    Room Tip: Rooms 18 and 21 - good sea views. Cottage is fun.

    We choose the Garrack because it appeared good, had parking and has enough reasonable reviews on Tripadvisor. There is nothing specially wrong with the Garrack but this hotel appears to require you to fit in with them rather than accommodate its guests - something that I thought had gone out with the 1960s. Not our taste therefore.
