We always return to the Garrack hotel every year. The hotel is excellent with very friendly and extremely helpful staff, we always look forward to seeing them again. The room was very pretty with plenty of room, and a very comfortable bed , and also very good tea and coffee making facilities. The views from the window are beautiful .

.We book in for bed breakfast and evening meal, and the food in the restaurant is excellent, with a very good variety , and beautifully presented, and the service is excellent.

We shall certainly be going back again and already looking forward to it.

We stayed here for just one night on the way home from a holiday on the Isles of Scilly. We had our two dogs with us so the apartment we were offered away from the main building was perfect, decor was a bit tired (especially the bathroom) but the service was exceptionally friendly and the food in the restaurant very, very good. The location is great with access to the coastal path and a lovely 30minute walk into St Ives. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is a real find...it may only have a 3 star rating but the service and food far exceeded this. The room we had was very pretty, decorated in "shabby chic" style, plenty of room, decent bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities and the most comfortable bed I've slept in for a long time. All the staff were courteous and friendly and made time for a chat. The food was excellent...the breakfast in particular ...lots of choice and all freshly cooked to order. We made use of the indoor pool area and spent a very pleasant hour with a glass of wine n the garden overlooking St Ives. I would thoroughly recommend and hope to return again soon.

We spent a lovely three day break at the family run Garrack Hotel in St.Ives. The hotel was very good, The staff were were very friendly and courteous. The food was 5 star, We had booked for B and B but dined in the restaurant in the evenings when there was a good variety menu. The food was excellent and very well presented. We shall definitely book there again. Thank you.

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.

The staff at this hotel are really friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. Our room was lovely and we enjoyed sitting in front of an open fire in the lounge in the evening. The food was excellent. We had pre-booked meals in a couple of restaurants in St Ives before our stay but on reflection we would have been much better eating at the hotel. Would unreservedly recommend it.

Just 3 days at Garrack. Tricky to find so use Sat Nav if poss. All very good and food was excellent. The hotel has fantastic views, but quite a walk down-hill to town. there is a car park - parking and driving is difficult in St Ives.
