Me and my husband visited St Ives half term week in celebration of his Birthday. We found the Chy-An-Albany on booking.com and for location, breakfast, reasonable price and reflecting on the positive reviews on here we booked for 3 nights. Firstly we were lucky with parking throughout our stay, even leaving to visit other locations and returning we still managed...

A quaint hotel with a maze of corridors and stairs, fortunately also a lift. We had a 'Classic Twin' which was of a reasonable size with a very compact shower room. Apart from the fact that the partition walls seem to be very thin and you can hear everything from the room next door it proved a very enjoyable and...

Have just come back from a couple of nights stay in this hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and tidy, nice bar area, and has a couple of balconies at the front with great views of the bay. It was a short walk down to the town and only took a few minutes...

We stayed here for 2 nights, we got a good deal. Check in was fine, receptionists are very friendly and helpful. We were given room 33 on the second floor. It must be the furthest room away from reception. When we got to our room we were very disappointed at the size of it. It was the smallest hotel room...

We both thought this was a lovely hotel. Access when arriving was easy, car parking no problem at all. Staff were very helpful in getting us settled in. The bar was roomy and comfortable with great views over the bay. The only fault was that our room was a little on the small side but this did not impact on...

Overall the hotel was pleasant, very welcoming receptionists and nice breakfast. On arrival the car parking was a little confusing as the front car park was full. But reception was very helpful. The room was quite cold and had to take advise from reception to warm the room up. Stayed in the room all night doing paperwork so never sampled...

Brilliant location albeit rather hilly. Beautiful room ( 7 ) with a huge balcony. Tasty buffet style breakfast. Tea/ coffee making facilities and comfy beds. All in all a great stay and very friendly staff. Tip - look in the drawer for the hairdryer !
