Although we did not choose the best weekend weatherwise for our trip to St Ives, the hotel more than made up fo it. It is good to stay in a hotel where the owners are on the front line and approachable. So far as the weather is concerened we have no complaints, this, after all, is an early spring period in England and we did have some lovely walks around St Ives and Newlyn, Falmouth and several other places and we did see the sun occasionally!
So far as the hotel is concerned we found it friendly and welcoming in all departments. The bedroom was very pleasant, with all the facilities that we required. Nice bed, which gave us a good sleep, something we rarely find in hotels and pillows which were ideal for us, again a rarity we have found. The bathroom and bedroom were well cleaned each day.
We used the restaurant both for breakfast and dinner. The staff there in particular were extremely friendly and helpful, led by an excellent Manager, Joanne, who always had a smile on her face, but clearly has high standards. We were made to feel welcome right from the start. Having run a restaurant we do appreciate that the front of house staff can have a tough job with some customers but we have always found that if staff are treated with respect then it is returned by them. After all we are all human!
The Hotel clearly has a very good chef and kitchen staff. The food was excellent and we have nothing but praise for the quality of the produce used, the way it was prepared and its presentation on the plate. The Venison and the Lamb Shank we had were particularly good
Well done to you all.
So overall we really enjoyed our stay and will come again.
