We always pop in to break up the coastal walk from Lelant to St. Ives - so we haven't stayed in the hotel, this is reviewing the cafe style area that overlooks the sea. Service just isn't great. We arrived and sat down and no one came our way to take an order, so we eventually went to the bar...

We were touring around Cornwall and came across the Carbis Bay Hotel by happy accident. We could only stay one night, which was a shame as the hotel and area around the hotel was beautiful. We had a great dinner at the restaurant on the beach, can't remember the name now but I think it was part of the hotel?...

When we first arrived we were faced with a car park with very tight turning spaces and very busy but managed to find a space luckily. There was a wedding going on which seemed to take precedence when we arrived in the hotel reception. However the receptionists were polite and friendly. A nice man took our bags up to our...
