We stayed at Blue Hayes for 4 nights in November and cannot recommend it highly enough. Our room was fabulous - we had the Bay Suite which was light and nicely decorated with fabulous views over the bay from our bed. The bed itself was huge and comfortable, with really super squishy pilllows. The bathroom was spotless and had a super fast filling bath! As for the breakfasts - they were just amazing, served by friendly staff who were happy to provide any combination of a huge range of dishes.
We were staying for our honeymoon, and on arrival we were not only greeted with a pot of tea, but a bottle of champagne and card, which was a lovely touch. In fact, this hotel really stands out due to the personal touches that seem to have gone into every aspect of the experience that you have here.
We didn't eat at the hotel during the evening, but highly recommend Alba in St Ives. If you are on a tight budget (we were!) they have a really good pre- 7pm deal.
