The view is spectacular, but so are the views from the coast path which is free. We had an upgrade to a lovely large room at the front of the hotel with a bath tub as well as a shower and a private balcony. In room amenities and fittings were of a high standard. The grounds are well maintained with...

Stayed here for one night in June for a friend's wedding. Before arriving we thought this hotel was over priced but when we arrived we could see why it was the price it was. The views around this hotel are like something from the Maldives unfortunately we didn't get great weather but even still. Room was clean and modern nothing...

Carbis Bay is quite simply breathtaking and this hotel was where we decided to have our wedding on June 3rd this year. Harriet, Nicole and Tony (plus another lady who's name I can't remember) plus bar/restaurant staff were simply amazing. Throughout the preparations and the wedding itself the whole team were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. The food...

Yes the location is great and you can easily walk the coastal path to St Ives but... The weddings dominated every day of our stay (three days) at the Hotel!! No one told us about all the building work!! and yes the coastal path now goes right past the pool - where everyone can look in!! We requested a room...

After reading some of the reviews, we were worried! But we shouldn't have - we so enjoyed our stay. We had one of the rooms at the back by the railway line but we had a balcony to sit on and the room was a decent size with good facilities. No worries there! The staff were excellent, from reception to...

We went for a meal for my husbands birthday with 2 friends. The service was excellent and the food very good. Would recommend this restaurant although it is a little on the expensive side. Beautiful views of Carbis Bay.
