My partner and I just spent the weekend staying at The Garrack Hotel in St Ives. On arrival the staff had upgraded our room free of charge to one of their stunning sea view rooms and I was slightly baffled as to why until my partner proposed to me! The staff were so friendly and really made our weekend away...

Stayed here for long weekend breaks with partner Dawn and Collie Mist, in November '16 and January '17.From the moment Jackie met us at reception until we left, everything was perfect, nothing too much trouble. Stayed in a dog-friendly room with panoramic views of the sea and St Ives. Room was spotless and welcoming, the breakfast plentiful and efficient. Lovely...

Stayed here from 27th-30th December. Absolutely wonderful experience. The food is a very good standard and presented nicely. The team; front of house, waiting, cleaning, etc; are polite friendly and helpful. There have been some changes, that not everyone will like, but the overall experience is relaxing and enjoyable.

Came to the hotel for one evening with my partner, it was a cosy hotel. We stayed in a double room which was more than we expected, very spacious and nice decor. The bed was extremely comfy and was very clear. The jets on the bath were not working but was not a huge let down. The view was stunning,...

What a beautiful place to stay! The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly at this lovely hotel. We tended to eat by the pool which was more relaxed than the restaurant and we didn't have the breakfast but we did enjoy a drink in the lounge in front of the fire. The hotel is in the ideal...

We had a fabulous and relaxing time at The Garrack Hotel. The breakfast and evening meals were superb, the food was fine quality and varied. We travelled with our little dog 'Maisie ' who enjoyed herself very much, especially breakfast as she was allowed to eat with us in a nice dog friendly dining room. Our room was a very...
