For an out of season break Carbis Bay Hotel made an ideal choice. It is run quite efficiently and room cleaning was excellent as was the decor and general the maintenance. Did not use the Spa, but the waiting staff at breakfast were both polite and accommodating in every respect. There was nothing about the three night stay to find...

We got married here 5 years ago and have returned several times, most recently for Sunday lunch. It is always excellent. I cant fault the service or the food. The Sunday lunch is great value £22 including a glass of wine. The views are the best you can find at any restaurant or hotel in the UK. They also do...

I stayed at carbis bay hotel with the idea of having a spa break. When we arrived the pool was drained and the spa pool was extremely busy, packed with people so it lacked the ambience expected. Although this was disappointing we decided to get in. Unfortunately, a few minutes after getting in the Spa pool a man with a...

We were staying as 3 women of a certain age for a birthday celebration. The hotel really is pretty fabulous. We were lucky enough to be in a beach front villa. This had it's own parking space next to the house. Fitted out beautifully with all mod cons. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, making sure we had everything...

On arrival we drove down to the carpark to be greeted by a crane, dumper trucks and a team of builders doing huge renovations to the hotel. We were both shocked and i was...

We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel. Throughout our stay the staff were all very courteous, friendly, helpful and informative. The restaurant and conservatory area reasonably comfortable and what really makes it is the view of Carbis Bay enhanced when we stayed by a couple of seals that came into the bay and swam around 5 metres from the...

Beautiful hotel, fantastic views, peaceful & great food. The room was spacious and the shower in the bathroom was huge! Amazing spa and I had a full body aromatherapy massage on the beach (in a lodge) by Mary; she was fantastic!! Management need to compliment her on her work, I fell asleep the massage was so good. So many places...

Just returned from a night away with dinner on the Travel zoo deal. It was simply brilliant, a lovely atmosphere with great service. We were advised on arrival that the main restaurant was very busy that evening and offered a table in the Beach club which we accepted, the food was fantastic and the service excellent. The room was modern...

This really is a great hotel in a perfect location. The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly helpful and hard working. They go that bit further to ensure you get the most enjoyment from your stay. The South West Coastal Footpath passes through the grounds of the hotel and it is a beautiful walk into St Ives....
