The Garrack is tucked away in an elevated position above St Ives. It has pretty gardens with sunloungers and seaviews. We stayed there for 2 nights in late June. We were given a big, comfortable room with all mod cons and wonderful views of Porthmeor beach .
We particularly liked the hotel for its friendly, Cornish welcome, its cheerful staff and excellent food. Breakfast was the best we had compared to several other highly rated Cornish hotels we visited on that trip and dinner was of an excellent standard and imaginative without being too haute cuisine or fussy.
It's a small family run hotel, about 15 minutes walk downhill to The Tate Gallery and with plenty of parking on site. It is very professionally and charmingly run as it has been for a number of years and you can't fault the hospitality. We didn't use the indoor swimming pool and and gym facilities but they looked great and the pool was a decent size to seriously swim.
It is not a flashy, boutique-style B&B, but has the atmosphere of a comfortable and friendly country house hotel with stunning sea views.
We will certainly return in 2012.
