The Carbis Bay Hotel has many excellent features. The restaurant consistently produces very good food. It is located on the edge of a massive beach of white sand, with the waves beyond. The staff are genuinely friendly and helpful and care about their guests and their hotel. There is a station on the coastal railway nearby, to take you into St Ives (a big plus if you want to go there - parking is very difficult). A small oudoor pool, but well heated. But.... this is a nineteenth century hotel, and it has been renovated to keep it that way. So, no lifts. Dim lighting in the rooms. Small rooms (after five nights here, our next stop was a Premier Inn, and we were really struck by the larger room there!). In general, the lack of the modern features and feel you would expect in, say a Hilton (or a Premier Inn!), got to be wearing after a while. And no gym. So only 4 out of 5.
