Parking- terrible
Bar on arrival ridiculous, tiny bar with approx 100 people in a queue to front entrance etc, for pity's sake, do an extra bar or do drinks on arrival or som

The great things about this hotel are the location, the great decor in the parts that have been refurbed so far, and the fabulous reception staff. Also the manager, Emma who dealt effectively with the issues we raised with her.

Unfortunately, we were not told until the night b

Really wonderful place to stay. Splendid view out over the bay and beautiful beach. The room was first class, the food likewise. Every member of staff we met was pleasant, helpful and friendly. The spa pool and facility was excellent. The current building work will lead to a

Hi, Just really interested to know if you could please...how long is the coastal walk into St Ives from the hotel? We are a couple mid seventies and fairly fit! Very many thanks Marilyn & Brian Worcester
I am sure that it is possible but we took the train.The hotel is on the beach and there is quite an ascent to the train station.

Hi does anyone know when the building works will finish?
Will never stay there again. We couldn't park as the car park was full. The noise of all the building works was very loud, There were 3 weddings and the delux rooms were the worst and smallest we have ever stayed in. The whole 3 days were chaotic and we payed £400 per night. They really didn't care when we complained. All they are bothered about is building more rooms to get more money.

Which apartment do you get if you book a pet friendly one? My girlfriend booked one for my birthday as we are taking two dogs and I just wanted to look at some photos of the pet friendly apartments but can’t find them on their website? Can anyone help?
Sorry I'm not sure. I would check with the hotel, they are very friendly and helpful.
