This is one hotel where the promise of the website and reality come together. We stayed in the Godlevy Room, looking out to sea from the high vantage point the Hotel enjoys. The room was excellently appointed. We walked down to the town and back on all occasions, but would recommend a taxi if you are bringing heavy luggage from the train or bus. A couple of doors away is a Ford dealership that hires good quality cars at a moderate price, so tripping around from St Ives is easy. The meals and bar at Blue Hayes are excellent. This is a hotel where the owner sets out to run a hotel the way he thinks hotels should be run and does it very well. St Ives is a great base for the region and interesting in itself, nestled on various picturesque bays.
