Spent a weekend at the Chy an Albany and have to say for the money it was hard to beat. The room wasn't huge and the bathroom was small but everything about the place was clean comfortable and well equipped. The staff were great and will definitely return.

A superb hotel. Great location. Great friendly staff. Clean and spacious rooms. Great sea views. Bar area is a perfect location looking down on to the beach, a little cold to stand on the decking area but I'm sure it's great. The breakfast is very good. Looking forward to staying again soon.

We stayed here in February for three nights. The Hotel is well placed and it's easy to walk into St Ives. The hotel staff are very kind and friendly.

The hotel staff were lovely and very welcoming,on a dark wet February night. Our twin room was exceptionally clean,looked recently redecorated including new carpet. The breakfast was lovely and freshly cooked. The staff were very accommodating of a very large family group ( many of whom stayed at the hotel) that remained in the bar til late.

Extremely welcoming and friendly. One waitress in particular went out of her way to help us and make us feel part of the hotel family. The meals were superb and staff went out of their way to help us celebrate our son's special birthday. Rooms very comfortable and clean. We would love to stay here again.
