Stayed at The Garrack for one night on a tour of Cornwall this summer. It was practically the only place in St Ives that allowed us to book one night only. The hotel is hidden away in a quiet residential area. We got what we expected ie a hotel with a need of refurbishment. It is quite old fashion but I guess it has it's charm.
Our room was big, eighties decor but the view made up for it. We had a beautiful view of the garden and then sea. The hotel has a pool which we didn't use.
Unlike some of the reviews we have read we didn't find the staff that helpful and the receptionist wasn't very friendly. He basically did the deed of giving us our keys and showing us to our room and charged us when we left but he was a man of few words.
At breakfast I asked for some honey and was told that if it wasn't on the table they didn't have any. It felt as if they couldn't be bothered to go and get it as I can't imagine for one minute that a hotel of that size did not have honey somewhere in their kitchens.
On departure date we were struggling with our suitcases, up some very steep stairs, when a man who worked at the hotel popped out of one of the rooms and asked whether we were off - I half expected him to ask whether we needed help, instead he said 'bye' and left us struggling with our cases . Not what I would call helpful.

We recently spent the most enjoyable five nights at this gem of an hotel and restaurant in St.Ives. The whole experience was something to remember for a long time. The staff were all extremely efficient especially in the restaurant where the food was as good as many high class restaurants we have ate in. The hotel was extremely well provided for, comfortable clean,warm and above all friendly. We could not have chosen a better hotel and restaurant for an autumn break. We will be back shortly for a longer stay.

We passed by the Garrack quite accidentally at the end of September and decided to stay for a couple of nights when we saw the charming building that literally was oozing vintage country elegance.
We can only recommend this place. A couple of mins walk brings you to the town centre and the Coastal Footpath starts right behind the hotel. But don't dare to eat anywhere than the Garrack! It was the very best food we ever had (and I used to work for a celebrity chef for some time and am rather spoilt), haute cuisine at reasonable prices, seasonal food and exceptional, modern compositions.
Furthermore, the hotel (and staff) is dog friendly and as dog owners may know it's very hard to find a high class, dog friendly place to stay.

Recently spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel.A hidden gem, a little difficult to find using sat nav- should have followed the signposts telling us not to use sat nav. A wonderful friendly and comfortable hotel with excellent food ,normally this standard is found only in the best restaurants. The staff are genuinely friendly and helpful which makes such a difference to your stay. We will definately stay there again when we are in Cornwall, our stay was truly memorable and we look forward to going back there soon.

Last stayed here 25 years ago for our honeymoon. Return trip was wonderful. Great room with fabulous views over St Ives. Food in the restaurant was excellent as were the staff, especially Kylie who made us feel very special on the evening of our silver wedding. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to visit next year as we had such a great time.
