I went with Shearings to this hotel, expecting the worst from the reviews. Frankly it was excellent. I had a sea view room, very modern and very clean. The food was excellent. I could find no fault whatsoever with this lovely four day break. The staff were polite and most helpful. It was good to re-visit St Ives once more.
