Breakfast was delicious and although mine was only a short stay, I would have no hesitation...

Thank you for your review of The Garrack. I am pleased you will return to stay again and would advise that if you have any meal requests, the chefs will be happy to oblige if possible. We have plans to refurbish the cottage next winter which will include replacing the windows.

Had a lovely room overlooking the bay.The hotel had a pleasant welcoming atmosphere with comfortable seating areas. Enjoyed a good dinner and the staff were attentive without being intrusive. The hostess was utterly charming.

My boyfriend and I visited the hotel for an early valentines celebration, on arrival we found the staff were very friendly and the room was spotless and very nicely decorated. The view from the window was amazing, we could see right across St Ives bay. The first night we ate out in St Ives, it was very quiet and not...
