Just got back from four nights at the Chy Albany Hotel, we had a deluxe room which was enormous with the biggest bed I have ever seen!! Large bathroom and a huge patio over looking the sea with table and chairs. The room had just been decorated and a new carpet. Our room, in fact the whole hotel was spotless...

Stayed in a deluxe room with sea view. Sea views from the room were superb. Our room was of a good size and also a good size bathroom. Room and entire hotel were clean and in good condition, and a comfortable bed with no noise made for a good nights sleep. Had an evening meal in the on site restaurant,...

I booked online, so when we got to the hotel I asked if it is was possible to have a seaview. They accommodated us with no problem - we had to move for our second night, but we still had a great view of the sea. The staff are all friendly, the rooms were comfy and spacious.

Lovely staff, superb food and clean rooms even though the en-suite in the single rooms are very petite. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely stay in this hotel again should the opportunity arise to travel to St Ives once more.

I stayed for a week, just returned home, and need to advise people that this is a good hotel, wonderful location with the restaurant and some of the rooms overlooking the bay. It is necessary to discuss your room with the staff in advance of your visit. However the best thing is the restaurant with the chef and his staff...

Had a deluxe sea view room with balcony and the view was stunning. If you are planning to stay in this hotel it is well worth paying for the sea view rooms. The breakfast is excellent with all you could want and it is served in the bistro with sea view. All the staff were helpful,friendly and polite and nothing...

We chose it because it was close to the rail station and we were on foot. It's uphill with your bags though - easier going down! They have quite a lot of rooms, but not many have a view and as people have said, ours was indeed a bit small with a TV set to match, and in need of...

Room was smaller than expected, especially the tiny en suite, however, it was clean, with good parking and about a 10 minute downhill walk to St Ives. The quiet location was enjoyable, as was a plentiful choice at breakfast with friendly staff.
