What's not to like - spotlessly clean modern room with comfy bed, ensuite bathroom. Breakfast great, staff friendly. Don't understand the negative reviews. Just one improvement to mention - no expel air fan in bathroom so room very warm After showering. Would recommend 😀

this is a rambling old hotel with small rooms, but nevertheless a pleasant stay. Excellent full English breakfast and reasonable rates close to the harbour. We spent very little time in our room which was our plan.

Nice old fashioned hotel. Friendly staff. Clean and comfy room. Walls are a little thin but then it is an old building. Great location in the centre of St Ives. Recommend the Station car park for long stay. Probably the best hotel breakfast I have had and a good vege option if required.
