This was a really good hotel, with a great location on the hill above the town, overlooking Tate St Ives. The staff were very pleasant and the restaurant was excellent for both breakfast and dinner. We also used the pool and sauna, which were small, but very nice.
Our room (Room 4) had amazing views, over the sea, and the 4-poster bed was comfortable, but the decor was a little tired, and the bathroom needed revamping. The owner assured me this was about to be done, and showed me the Farrow and Ball paint delivery in the foyer!
The only other thing to perhaps mention is that the other guests all appeared to be fairly 'mature' in years - we are 38 and 40, and felt that we brought the average age down quite a bit! There were a few younger couples, but not many, and this was a very quiet hotel, so perhaps not for everyone, although I'm sure you would receive a warm welcome!
We had a really pleasant stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.
