We visited this hotel purely for an evening meal on the recommendation of friends and were far from disappointed. We had a superb three course meal that was delicious. We were fortunate enough to have a window table in the restaurant overlooking St Ives bay. Beautiful. We would thoroughly recommend it. We will be returning

We stayed for 2 nights B & B. Our room on the 3rd floor was spotlessly clean and really comfortable with tea/coffee making equipment and nice biscuits! The hotel has lovely views from the lounge and dining room as it is on a hill, which means a bit of a climb up from the town but not a problem provided...
